It aint the 'Thrawn Trilogy' thats for sure!!!,
This review is from: Allegiance (Star Wars (Del Rey)) (Mass Market Paperback)
As the previous reviewer stated, anyone who's enjoyed Timothy Zahns previous work will be left scratching their head in bewilderment.
I like many SW fans was thrilled with the Thrawn Trilogy and thought them most worthy of a place in the Star Wars galaxy. This offering however is sadly not.
The general premise sounded promising and I enjoyed the story of the Rogue stormtroopers, unfortunately that was as good as it got. Han grumbles his way through the story like a young Victor Meldrew clone and Luke has all the boyish charm and ability of a manaquin. That coupled with the fact Vader is made to look inept and Mara Jade is some sort of Jedi Master who is more powerful in this book than at any other stage in her life, made for a really sluggish read.
In the few pages she appeared, Leia was more like her true character but that did nothing to save the book.
In summary: A dissapointing offering from an author capable of so much more.
