Product Description

From the Back Cover

The New Republic's triumph grows ever more precarious in the face of an arrogant race bent on war, as the bestselling Star Wars saga continues...


As Leia must deal with a new threat to the fragile new alliance that binds the New Republic, Lando becomes a prisoner aboard a runaway spacecraft of unknown origin. The ship is following an unstoppable path to its homeworld, destroyed by Imperial forces. Luke continues his quest to learn more about his mother among the Fallanassi, where his every belief about the use of the Force is about to be challenged. And while Leia ponders a diplomatic solution to the aggression of the fierce Yevetha race, Han pilots a spy ship into the heart of Yevethan space and finds himself a hostage of one the vast fleet of warships under the command of a ruthless leader - a fleet more than a match for the New Republic's forces...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as "Before the Storm" 10 Nov 2000
By A Customer
I bought this book because I really wanted to know what happened after Nil Spaar declared war on the New Republic in Before the Storm. It was very hard to understand and I had to read some parts twice. The one thing I didn't like was the fact that the book was split into three parts: Lando, Luke and Leia. I would have prefered it if was all interwound. Lando's part was a bit boring. Luke's and Leia's weren't so bad. The ending was much better and left me wanting to buy the third book. I suggest if you want to read the whole trilogy buy this book. If not skip it and read the third.
