This time the idea is to have Jack and Draycos sold as slaves to a Brummga slavemaster. The Brummga are definitely one of the allies against the K'Da. As usual, things get a bit more complicated than Jack had hoped, and he and Draycos end up as real slaves.
The book goes on to portray Jack's struggle against his indoctrinated desire to look out for no. 1 and only no. 1.
I have read better books by Zahn. The first book in this series is one. Having said that, I did read the book through. It's an easy and kind of fun read. Not too complicated and not difficult to put down either. Getting up and having to do other things was not a problem.

The only complaint I have about this is the ebook itself. I payed the $6.99 and there were outrageous typos throughout the entire thing. For example, Jack joins a mercenary group and refers to mercenary groups the whole time as merc groups. However, the ebook spells it "mere groups", which left me confused until I realized there was a spelling problem going on throughout. As well, there is random hyphenation like "be-tween" or "al-ways" and points where the font changes for a word or two. For me, this is not only distracting but actually offensive seeing as I payed the same amount I would for a fully revised paperback but received something more like a rough draft. It tells me the publishers think they can rip people off who buy the ebook, like we won't notice all the problems.
I only give this a two for the ebook version. The story itself is a 5 out of 5, hands down.
