Jaina Solo and the survivors of the mission to destroy the Force-sensitive creature the Yuuzhan Vong were using to help track and destroy the Jedi are trying to escape, but Jaina is bringing something more than the survivors back. Guilt over what happened to her brothers, as well as a desire for revenge, is causing her great problems as well as tension among the Jedi. Upon returning to Coruscant and discovering what happened there, she and her crew make for the Hapes Cluster, where the Jedi are unwelcome for what happened to a fleet of their ships in an earlier book. That is also where other refugees have arrived, including Han and Leia Solo. A tearful reunion occurs, but Leia is troubled by the feeling she has about Jaina. Will she go all the way to the other side, losing herself forever? Or will she have help from good friends as well as rivals to keep her on the good path? Whatever she decides, she will be changed forever, forging her own way, and the Vong had better not get in the way. The Vong are after Jaina for a sacrifice, thinking that she's special because she's a twin.Read more ›
Fast paced as the book was, Jaina's dark side battle was far too cerebral to be exciting, my feeling was she was flirting with the dark side more than actually being tempted by it. Where were the displays of Dark Side force powers that happened at the end of the previous book? I wanted people being fried with force lightening, not a "Will I, Won't I" discussion in Jaina's head! Her attitude change wasn't very believable and came across as forced, the climax was disappointing, a sterile portrayal of the battle scene, which was unfortunate as these are the very scenes that have made this series so enjoyable, but there were enough developments in the Yuuzan Vong war effort, to make this still worth buying.
Despite that its still a good novel, it advances the story in a intresting way with regards to the Vong, even if they dont play to bigger a role *SIGH*. It manouvers some of the characters into intresting positions most obviously Tenal Ka and reintroduces Jag Fel, who despite having a good reason to re-appear rapidly sinks into an unbelievable role. Kyp ends in a very intresting position despite being horrible misused in my humble opinion. The Solos and Skywalkers are swiftly and naffly shifted to one side leaving Jania all on her own...... Lowbacca has been described as Chewie with a lightsaber elsewhere which I can understand, but he lacks the obvious loyalty and main supporting character role of Chewie, and simply becomes a plot tool *GRRRR*.
IF you read the NJO series then this book is a must as I feel its gonna be fairly pivotal, having introduced new elements and repositioned a few of the major characters. If you haven't read this series then go and start at the beging and set yourself for a dark journey throu the world of Starwars, don't start in the middle.
Much as I have slated this book I can understand where it comes from... following on from the events and harshness of Star by Star I can understand why they have let things slide a bit I just wish they hadn't. Elaine is a GOOD author and should have been allowed to delve deeper and darker to create a better novel.Read more ›
The Hapan royal family was great, providing much needed humor into the dark theme of the story. Tenel Ka is at her best in this book, even more so than in the YJK books. And of course who can forget Jaina, continuing a struggle against her anger and grief, and readers finally see an NJO author develop her character, something I have been wanting for a long time.
Elaine Cunningham has truly done good by this book. I hope she does more star wars books, cos I'll be buying them!!
