Or not quite.
Boba finally does get his chance to try and take Mace Windu.
Most here can guess upon the results, but we do learn how and why he repaints his armor - and that Palpatine sets up his chance to fight Mace Windu - obviously a target for the Supreme Chancellor to eliminate.
In any case, Boba is 13 years old? Not quite a match for Mace Windu, but most of his weapons he starts to favor come from his preparation for this fight.
Boba's now met most of the major players in the galaxy:
Obi-Wan (in AOTC)
Anakin (this book, they spend some time together! It gets real interesting)
Mace (this book - a spectacular fight - or attempt at it)
Palpatine (this book - very interesting indeed. It makes sense because of Jango)
Dooku (several of the books as well as AOTC)
General Greivous (he barely escapes with his life, only because Greivous thinks he's dead)
Aurra Sing (some pretty dangerous encounters over past books)
Jabba the Hutt (the food's good and the pay's plenty)
Durge (another narrow escape, but Jabba will now protect Boba from Durge)
Ventress (a very narrow escape, thanks in part to Jedi help)
I like the way the Fett books have been handled. It makes Boba a much more interesting character to me since I was not a Fett fan to begin with.
