Good, but lacking in some areas
on 11 July 1999
A decent conclusion to the Zahn trilogy. A few problems with it though: I found the fact that Fey'lya was still on the new republic counsel after what he did in the last book ridiculous. Also, the ending battles, both in space and in the throne room had some flaws. The smugglers part in the space battle made little sense. As well, Mara destroying both of the enemies in the throne room was also disappointing. Overall, the trilogy was decent reading, but it did not feel like star wars.
