A page turning Star Wars adventure with Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, Lando, C3P0, R2D2 and other old (and new) favorites. Luke realizes he must establish a new Jedi Academy and begins his search for students. Meanwhile, Han and Chewie are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. Leia juggles her twins with her duties to the New Republic and her feelings about her husband, Han. I really enjoyed the romp through all the characters' adventures. A very exciting and at times edge-of-the-seat reading!
Very well written. I feel that Anderson is one of the all time best star wars novel writers, right up there with Zahn's original books. This captures the original feel Zahn had while still using very original details. Highly recommended for anyone who likes Star Wars novels.
Volume #1 of Kevin Anderson's "Jedi Academy" STAR WARS trilogy. It details the further adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Leia and their children. Definitely one of the better of the Star Wars offerings by a writer who really knows how to tell a good tale.
