Book Description

3 Aug 2000
The third mass market paperback original in our brand-new Star Wars spin-off series, THE NEW JEDI ORDER - which launched in hardcover in October 1999 with VECTOR PRIME. HERO'S TRIAL is the first of a two-part adventure called Agents of Chaos, featuring Han Solo and is written by the co-author of the bestselling Robotech novels. Merciless attacks by an invincible alien have left the New Republic reeling. Dozens of worlds have succumbed to occupation or annihilation, and even the Jedi Knights have tasted defeat. In these darkest of times, the noble Chewbacca is laid to rest, having died as heroically as he lived - and a grief-stricken Han Solo is left to fit the pieces of his shattered life back together before he loses everything: friends, family and faith. Refusing help from Leia or Luke, Han becomes the loner he once was, seeking to escape the pain of his partner's death in adventure and revenge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continues the 'must-read' New Jedi Order books 1 Dec 2000
Format:Paperback
The best aspects of these books is that each book or duology features on a different set of characters, and we see the invasion through their eyes.
Here, we see the latest events of the continuing Yuuzhan Vong invasion through the eyes of Han Solo, who was conspicuous by his absence up until this point.
It's great to see Han back as the hero we know he is, back to his best and taking on the galaxy again. Even better is that Luceno makes plenty of references to the 70's Han Solo book trilogy, bringing characters into the expanded universe that some thought were gone forever.
It's not the best book of the New Jedi Order series, I'd like to see more Jedi, and more non-human characters involved, but the series is fast paced and exciting and always leaves you wondering how the heroes of old are going to cope.
Now all I need is a duology based on Lando Calrissian and i'll be really happy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A return to form for "Star Wars" 13 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As Stackpole's series revolved almost entirely around the Jedi, it is refreshing to see that the tables have been turned. This time, Han Solo takes centre stage. And the improvement is incredible.
This time, there's no standing around playing around with words; rather, it is all-out action, which, let's face it, has always been what "Star Wars" has been best at.
A refreshing aspect of this book is the return of characters from the Correlian trilogy and the Black Fleet trilogy; characters who were ignored by most writers. Another refreshing aspect is the style of writing; it is far better than Stackpole's. It is unpretentious, neat, and far less meandering. It shows the Yuuzhan Vong savagery in a far more effective way.
In conlusion, this book has served to restore my faith in these books, and brought about a fresh style. Long may it continue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Part good, Part bad 22 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Well, I read it in a day, it is a good story but it is too inconsistent with the other books, for me anyway. On the good side there is a lot of depth and it is good to see Han Solo almost back to normal but it just didn't impress me the way the other books have.
On the bad side, the tactics used against the YV are different, no mention of the flicker shots, suddenly Krefey is no longer really mentioned and the Jedi play a very small part. No real mention of Corran Horn and the events of Ruin. I know every book does not have to be about the Jedi but it just doesn't flow from the other books in the series.
This book is a must if you follow the New Jedi Order series but it didn't work for me. Buy it and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best New Jedi Order book so far 4 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
As James Luceno had never written a star wars book before, i did't know if he'd be any good. He was. The story is excellent and some question from the previous books start to be answered. Also their is the welcome return of Han Solo to the action as he and his old friend Roa go off on an adventure. Mara also gets a step closer to curing her disease. I thought it was great that luceno brought back lots old characters like Belindi Kalenda from the Correlian trilogy and also lowbacca. An excellent book.
