After the momentous events of Star by Star, things take a bit of a breather in Dark Journey, by Elaine Cunningham. Star by Star was overloaded with characters and galaxy-spanning events, including some major changes for both the planet Coruscant (the capital planet of the Republic) and for the Solo children. This book takes a bit of a closer look at Jaina Solo. After what happened to her two brothers, she's in danger of moving to the Dark Side of the Force, and Cunningham does an effective job of giving us that story. Even better, it's not all wrapped up and Jaina will have a fight on her hands for probably the rest of the series, which makes the book even more effective.

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.

I had been looking forward to this book since the day I finished the cracking "Star By Star" many months ago, unfortunately it didn't live up to my anticipation. The plot was quite involved, but I don't think that it was as hard to figure out, as Elaine Cunningham believed it was. Without giving anything away, the fact that the whole book was focused on Jaina made it quite predictable as to which way the story would move.
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.

It's great that you finally get to meet the real Jaina Solo as truely main character, however you get the feeling this is only half the story, and that whatever is happening to Jacen is going to be the other half. Thanks to Jaina, we see another chink in Vong's armour. Maybe they're not so invincible after all!

I am sorry, much as I did enjoy this book, I do feel thats its probably the weakest NJO novel in the way it relates to the major characters... Everything is very cliched and obvious, there are no real suprises or revelations. This book harps back to the worst of the Starwars novels which I hoped where dead and buried with the start of the NJO series.
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.

Ive always been a Jaina fan, so it was a dream come true when DJ was finally released. In two words, absolutley brill. The dialogue between Jaina and Jagged, and Jaina and Kyp was great, with a lot of amusing moments there. I felt perhaps there should have been more opportunities there for Luke and Mara in the story.
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!!
