A good action/adventure, with a lot of suspense, that leaves clamering for more.

Not the best Star Wars book I've ever read. Not even close. I found myself constantly pushing myself to just trudge through the bad parts for the sake of saying I read it. I didn't have high hopes for the second book either, though I was pleasantly surprised. It was very good. I don't see how Kube-Mcdowell can write such a train wreck here, but have a stunner in his next book. Unfortunately you have to read this one to understand the next otherwise I'd say pass this one up. I say read this one so you can read the next one, Shield of Lies.

The book was fairly interesting but it took a little while for the action to pick up. I also didn't always agree with how the author was portrying the characters. I kept thinking to myself, "Leia wouldn't say that," or "Luke wouldn't do that."

It is a time of tranquillity for the New Republic. The remnants of the Empire now lie in complete disarray, and the reemergence of the Jedi Knights has brought power and prestige to the fledgling government on Coruscant. Yesterday's Rebels have become today's administrators and diplomats, and the factions that fought against imperial tyranny seem united in savoring the fruits of peace.
But the peace is short-lived. A restless Luke must journey to his mother's homeworld in a desperate and dangerous quest to find her people. An adventurous Lando must seize a mysterious spacecraft that has weapons of enormous destructive power and an unknown mission. And Leia, a living symbol of the New Republic's triumph, must face down a ruthless leader of the Duskhan League, an arrogant Yevetha who seems bent on a genocidal war that could shatter the fragile unity of the New Republic...and threaten its very survival.
