I've read all of Timothy Zahn's Star Wars novels and he is a brillant author but this simply isn't his best work. To get the most from this book you need to have all of his previous novels particularly Allegiance as Zahn seems to have written this book assuming you know all these characters. The new characters especially the villian are seriously underwritten. That said the return of characters like Thrawn and Mara Jade is excellent.
The plot takes a little time to get going but is perfectly good. However it lacks the level excitement or interest that most of his previous books achieve.
In conclusion if you're new to Timothy Zahn start with some of his earlier work before reading this one, if a seasoned fan I would wait till it comes out in paperback as it is one of his weaker novels.

Written by Timothy Zahn, a writer many consider to be not only the greatest writer of Star Wars Expanded Universe stuff, but also the most influential, this story picks up about 3 months after the first one, "Allegiance" finishes.

It has all the same major characters in it, from the Hand of Judgement, to Mara Jade and of course the Rebel Heroes we know from the films.

The story takes place a few months after the events of A New Hope and the Battle of Yavin, and is primarily about the Rebels looking for a new base to set up from, having been chased around the galaxy by the Empire.

As with all Zahn's books, the story is solid and intriguing, with you always wanting to know what's on the next page, the character development is as thorough as you'd xpect and the plot twists that happen every now and then will leave you guessing.

An interesting note, some of the characters who will have a dramatic impact on each other in the future (such as Mara and Luke's wedding) meet each other, however briefly, and it lends the book quite a nice feeling of connectiveness. It's almost cementing itself in the wall of Star Wars lore solely by saying it, you inevitably end up thinking "oh, so-and-so will do that at some point, wow", and feeling almost as if you're privy to some secret.

In all, it is a very good book, with a great name attached to it. If you enjoyed Allegiance, or Star Wars in general, I certainly recommend it.

Although this offering is up to the usual standard from Timothy Zahn when it comes to quality of writing, dialogue and pacing of action the storyline itself falls a bit flat. It doesn't really add anything to the Star Wars universe and fails to arouse much interest.

This is probably because this novel seems a bit of an excuse to re-visit characters whose storylines within the series of Star Wars novels are basically done; ie Mara Jade, Thrawn and Pellaeon. Interesting though these characters have always been there really isn't much more to be made of them. There is also an effort to portray the above mentioned characters as 'good guys'. This seems a little out of place despite the roles of these characters in later chronological books in the Star Wars series. At the time of this novel all three are still willing followers of Palpatine and his Empire.

The major villain is perhaps the worst thing about the novel. He is predictible
and dull, not really doing much. He is almost incidental to following the activities of the characters we are familiar with.

Luke and Han are both portrayed excellently though by Zahn and the 'farm boy' version of Luke from A New Hope is captured perfectly.

A worthwhile read to kill some time but there are much better Star Wars books out there by Timothy Zahn.

I always like reading Timothy Zahn's books. For me, the Thrawn Trilogy is where it all began and are still some of the best Star Wars books ever written in my humble opinion. So it's always nice to read more books by Zahn, set in a similar period of the timeline, with a lot of the same characters, in a story that is multi-dimensional and has plots, sub plots and a nice way of linking everything together at the end.

Seeing how Zahn intentionally gets Mara Jade and Luke so close together without ever actually meeting (which would of course make a rather obvious plot hole) is both entertaining and clever. Having said that, I don't think this is Zahn's best work and there were some parts of the book that I found quite hard going. That is not to say it is a bad book because it isn't. It is action-packed throughout and is well paced. It's probably advisable to read Allegiance first though.

This story was well written and had intrigue and action all the way throughout . However the ending was a little abrupt and a bit anti-climatic I felt. This caused the overall enjoyment of the book to be tarnished.

I'm biased, I love the Star Wars universe, mainly that created by the novels rather than the films, and for me Tim Zahns Thrawn Trilogy was where it all began. This novel revisits many of those same characters and this strength is one of it's weaknesses. The characters have evolved so much for me in the subsequent novels, births marriages and deaths taking place ofer decades, and because of where this book is set it is limited in how much it can do. The added depths it gives to some of the characters makes it worth it for me but there is only so much it can do and so it can't manage the full 5 stars.
