The second book in Timothy Zahn's duology, the follow up to the widely praised, massively successful Thrawn trilogy picks up right where the first book, Specter of the Past, left off: the New Republic is on the brink of civil war, Han and Leia are looking to get some R&R, Luke is trying to find Mara Jade, Admiral Pellaeon is still in the dark about the machinations of Moff Disra, Tierce, and the returned Admiral Thrawn. Several simultaneous efforts are underway to retrieve the original Caamas document, which is hoped will avert the civil war, and the mystery of the Hand of Thrawn is revealed. This book, while overall a stronger book than Specter of the Past, still trips up a bit. All the plot threads fail to link up in a satisfactory manner (I'm not one to seek everything all tied up nice and neat, but I do want some connection), leaving a disjointed feel. And like the first book, this duology misses the real Admiral Thrawn. I found the most interesting parts those that discussed Thrawn's history, which is maintains a shroud of mystery. Still, Zahn is a good enough writer to power through the faults and still provide a satisfying read.

I have been a fan of Timothy Zahn's work ever since "Heir to the Empire" and he does not disappoint. This is the concluding novel in this particular series of two books so be sure to read the first one, "Specter of the Past". All of the prnciple characters have equal time in this novel and Zahn does a terrific job of unwinding the mystery of this story and keeping up the suspense.

This is absolutely my favorite Star Wars book. The characters are as good as ever. The best part is perhaps that there are at least 5 plots intertwined throughout the whole book, at times more. There are also some great philosophical discussions between Luke and Mara. I've read this book more than any other Star Wars book - my copy is falling apart.

A great Star Wars book by Timothy Zahn, one of the best I have ever read, along with Specter of the Past. I definately give this five stars. Very suspensful, especially about the part with Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade. Very, very good I recommend you buy it. Timothy Zahn combines the old characters with some of the new ones.

Tis book was so amazing. I have read almost every Star Wars book put out. To my amazement, I keep going back for Zahn. I own both series he has written about Star Wars. I mostley love this book is because I was on the 'edge of my seat' with each passing moment. The emotion and love and violence and hate are perfect. How Han and Leia want a vacation and end up forging peace with the empire. I am waiting anxiously for the next book, because, you can tell, there will be a sequal. I laughed, cried, yelled, and sighed while reading this book. I used to cry every time I read any other book about Star Wars, because of Gariel, Calista, and every other girl Luke can't have. Luke proposes to Mara while they are both trapped in a little room and don't know how to get out. WARNING-if you are going to read this book, read Spector of the Past or you will be CLUELESS!

I love this book! I must have read it 100,0000 million times. It is a must read. It is an action book witha bit of mystery and a twist of romance. When I read it I was like this is classic Mara Jade all the way. I love how Mara acts through the whole thing. I also love how Shada Du'kul acts. Its great! (Strong women! ;) ). I like how Drisa, Flim and the gradsman act it adds hummor along with Han and Lando's reactions to life (as always, no suprises there!). Talon Kradde also made me laugh, all the rediculous comments he makes along the way. I think that this book is amazing!!!!!!!!! I laughed when Luke asked Mara to marry him. I was so expating it. What leads up to that is hallarious! Mara's attitude is funny and the way she put in words. It's tipical Mara. And how Shada gat all worked up about Kradde going alone. Also at the end when Leia says Han likes strong women. It is sooooo funny! They way she gets him to amit it is soo ironic! Luke, Han and Kradde are srounded by strong women. Mara, Shada and Leia are amazing! I love this book! It has enough romance, action and mystery to capture anyones fancy. I'd recomende it to any teenager looking for an si-fi action book that has a bit of mystery with a romance twist. I love this book !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Soooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think Kradde and Shada make the perfect cople. It is pefect!!!!! THIS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE VISION OF THE FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!!
