I bought this book because I really wanted to know what happened after Nil Spaar declared war on the New Republic in Before the Storm. It was very hard to understand and I had to read some parts twice. The one thing I didn't like was the fact that the book was split into three parts: Lando, Luke and Leia. I would have prefered it if was all interwound. Lando's part was a bit boring. Luke's and Leia's weren't so bad. The ending was much better and left me wanting to buy the third book. I suggest if you want to read the whole trilogy buy this book. If not skip it and read the third.
