Although I will agree that the author's style was confusing at times, I felt that this was a good novel. The situations involving Han, Chewie and Leia introduced some interesting facets to the Star Wars story, such as the Empire's use of torture techniques involving mind-bending drugs, the existence of Jedi that operated apart from the Council on Coruscant (obvious by the fact that they had kids and spouses and by the fact that Callista seemed unfamiliar with figures like Yoda and Obi-Wan) and another 'Emperor's Hand' with an evil prodigy. Irek was a frustrating character in his attitude but was fascinating for his ability to control machines via a brain implant. It was nice to see Leia put such a damper on the evil plans that had formed too. Luke's situation was fascinating as well in that he was pushed to use the more intellectual aspects of the Force rather than just slashing-and-bounding repeatedly. It was intriguing to see that even a Jedi Master can get hurt (physically and emotionally).

    What book are you talking about?

    I thought it was a great book! Yes, Leia was a little too dependant on everyone, but it showed some humanness in her that we've not seen before. Luke seemed human when he had feelings for Gaeriel. I thought Nichos and Cray were just thrown in there, but you had to have Cray for the end to work out. What I dont' get is why she wouldn't believe that the real Nichos was gone, and she just had a droid. I thought Luke and Callista were a good match. This book was a good mix of romance and action adn strategy. Yes, you had to think about it, but that's part of what makes a good book good. I've read better novels on both sides of shoot em up and romance, but this is one of the best mixes. Thinking about the book made me go back and read it again, and you really have to do that to pick up all the details that make it a well written book. All in all, a good story line and realistic characters if you take the time to notice details, think about everything, and savor the book over adn over again.
