Inadvertently, this has ended up becoming the last Star Wars novel that is no longer considered to be classified as canon due to the Disney takeover; or at least it is last chronologically in the Star Wars expanded universe (other novels were subsequently published that were set in earlier periods). Of course, this is entirely due to happenstance and as such this book isn’t any sort of thunderous climax or conclusion to the two decades or so worth of novels published since Timothy Zahn’s ‘Heir to the Empire’. It also isn’t the end to any of the epic story arcs that have appeared in the 2000s. Instead it is just one of those one off adventures involving one corner of the galaxy. Because of this it is hard not to get a sense of anti-climax from the book; which isn’t really its fault.

In a way, however, the story does reach a conclusion that is somehow loosely satisfying in that it provides a possible ending for the decades of adventures and struggles for Luke, Leia and Han. And it is a pleasant situation to leave them in.

It certainly isn’t one of Troy Denning’s better Star Wars books (he has written a couple of the best ones), but, for the most part, it is an enjoyable romp that covers most of what might be expected of a Star Wars novel.

It focuses primarily on Luke, Leia and Han, who are, perhaps, the main three characters from the original trilogy of films. It also features Tahiri and Ben who have become stalwarts of the Star Wars novels as they have chronologically progressed. There is little of the widespread galaxy with its civilisations and politics and the story is set in remote, virtually unchartered area. And even though a couple of ‘bad guys’ make a reappearances the major antagonists are two new characters from what seems to be a new race of aliens.

This. is the first time in years that I have read a new adventure in the Star Wars universe that features the characters from the original trilogy.
The characters were both familiar and changed as you would expect for older more developed characters. The story was exciting and gripping, and despite the changes the story was in a universe I recalled from my youth.

The book was a ok read it is good in some places but not over all. The trouble with it was, it is not so much fast paced as it feels rushed trying to get through everything. It is set 2 years after the Fate of the Jedi series. It centres on the three main characters (as you can see from the cover) Luke, Leia, and Han. This would be great as I love all three of them but there was something missing and the ending did leave me a bit unsatisfied. I am guessing this is mainly done because nobody is sure what Disney now want to do with the franchise, so it is not worth starting a new series that they will not be able to finish they do leave a lot left for Disney to play with, which just adds to my frustration as I like loose ends tied up. This gives this book as more of a fill in the gap feel then furthering the story after the last series.

The book starts out well, stating how thing have moved on in the galaxy and for the Jedi Order itself. If they carried on this it would have been perfect, but it goes off. Han and Leia are called in to help Lando with a pirate problem on his latest venture. Luke bore from being stuck in the temple and recuperating from his injuries he suffered (including a Force scar on his chest that will not heal) in the last series decides he would like to go along to this routine mission and joins them later. Unfortunately or by the will of the Force they stumble on to a plot of galactic proportions.

There are mentions of the next generations and the current threats still of there but there contribution to the book are minimal at best. The story would probably end the same way if they were there or not. Luke is still used to plying things close to the vest, sometimes not even giving his closest friend insight of what he is thinking. The book does get better as it goes further along, then the ending is again rushed. All in all This could have been a good to a great book, but ends up being more filler.

The Star Wars EU (Expanded Universe) keeps moving forward. This directly follows on from the Fate of the Jedi series, and is set around 44 years after the events of the original film. An attack on an outer-space mining facility turns into a life or death battle for Luke, Han & Leia, as a pair of alien brothers have found an anomaly in space that can grant anyone the ability to use the Force,,,for a price.

SPOILER ALERT:

This was a good book with plenty of action throughout. I liked the reappearance of Vestara Khai (whose identity I figured out straight away from the brief description) but was disappointed that there was hardly any interaction between her and her former boyfriend Ben Skywalker. The action reaches a satisfying conclusion, but then you are left somewhat wondering what happens next, with all 3 main characters saying that they are taking a break from saving the galaxy for a while. I think this is a deliberate effort by author Troy Denning to leave the future of the EU open, as I think he, like myself, believes that at least some of the EU may be retconned when Episodes VII, VIII and IX are released. Overall, a very good read though.
