About the Author
Michael A. Stackpole is the New York Times bestselling author of many titles in the Star Wars universe, including many of the Star Wars X-Wing novels and the New Jedi Order: Dark Tide novels Onslaught and Ruin. When not chained to a desk madly fighting deadlines, he plays indoor soccer, rides a mountain bike, and reads, but not all at the same time. Stackpole lives in Arizona with Liz Danforth and a small pack of Cardigan Welsh corgis.

The twist at the end was a little bit of an anticlimax, but didn't spoil the plot as a whole.
The characters were a little flat, but seeing as this was the author's first novel (first written novel according to his blurb, not first published), they're not bad, I'd have liked to see more interaction between him and Morai for example.
For once I looked at the appendices, and saw something interesting about the author's plans for a sequel - check out his website and the Talion 10,000 challenge, and see if you like his epublishing approach for authors to get books out which readers want but publishing houses don't view as profitable enough.
I've read 3 chapters and it's so badly written that I'm not sure I'm going to continue. I wasn't expecting a masterpiece but it reads like something a school kid might write (which is possibly what it is as this was his 1st book). Nothing flows well and there is some very awkward sentence construction. A lot of description in it seems like unnecessary padding at best, and at worst doesn't make sense or misuses words. I can't say much about the story as I've only read 3 chapters but so far it's not been interesting enough to enable me to get past the terrible writing and I have doubts that it will improve.
Given the almost universal glowing praise for this book I can only assume that almost everyone who has written reviews of this book on the internet are young children or friends and family of the author.
