A trap that writers often unknowingly fall into is the repetition of words or phrases in a piece of their writing. This NJO writing tandem's Achilles Heel in this novel is the word KEEN. For some reason, they repeat this word so many times, it becomes irksome. Good editors are supposed to catch things like this. Well, I can't be too hard on them: George Lucas fell into the same trap in writing Episode II (how many times can you repeat 'my young apprentice'?)

I waited until I finished Reunion before I rated this because I thought that maybe Reunion would shed some light as to why Refugee was needed in the NJO series . Sadly, it didn't. Remnant was pretty good and seemed book-worthy, but this book was primarily a 'Filler' , that could have altogether been skipped. Dix/William do good background work in their books, but their action scenes and plot developments are some of the worst in the NJO series. So much potential was missed in this book that something like the Ssi-Ruuvi vs. Yuuzhan Vong, finding Zenoma Sekot, or the Shamed Ones Uprising could have saved it. Unfortunately, nothing that exciting happened. Page after page of 'Filler'. I hope this is the last of its kind in this series.

this book was mildly better than the first in this set but still not that great. i'm still hoping a jedi like darth vader evolves, one that is more powerful. need more comedy in these books too. wyn was a good addition, i say kill off danni and let jacen get with wyn...she was the only good part about this book

Some progress was made toward finding the living planet and diagnosing Tahiri's illness. There were the usual space squirmishes and a land battle with an android. The Ryn, Goure, has stepped forward to help the Jedi. This book was the second paperback in the series that was somewhat optomistic. The first was Traitor. I don't read the hard backs.

I read Remnant, thought that was bad. So I get Refuggee hoping it might be better. I hoped wrong! the only good part in the book was that Jag gave up his anti-public affection thing and that it had a lot of the Fel family. I literally had to force myself to read the book!

Once again, Sean Williams and Shane Dix have done a wonderful job tying in new adventures to the New Jedi Order series with this book. They tied in events from other books, such as Truce at Bakura, covering up loose ends and bringing things together. Nom Anor's continued underground efforts are a great foreshadowing of what may happen, and the portrayal of the Chiss left me enjoying every second. I couldn't put this book down, it was so enticing. The continued humor and irony brings things together still more, and I'd recommend this to anyone who's a fan. Well worth the time!

This was a great book.The Jedi are starting to tie the ends of the 'Star Wars' Universe together,making some (much needed) allies. Luke is starting to act more like a confident,and determined Jedi master. It seemend like this book was building up to something big, and I can't wait for the third book to come out.

well guess what? Its finally out. Well, i didn't really like the first one in the series, but refugee makes up for the loss. It finally talks about the Ssi-Ruvvi and the fate of Bakura after the Corellian Trilogy. I really enjoyed this book, though the only apparent fualt was the lack of any battles involving the Yuuzhan Vong, only ones against the Ssi-Ruvvi. However it was a nice change from the monotony of 'The laser beam was sucked into the sinularity sheild once again' and the likes. I also like the development of Tahiri's character and that of Riina Kwaad (Surprise, shes back). My favorite parts of the book would have to be, however, all the scenes that took place on Csilla, the Chiss homeworld, especially getting to meet Wedge's sister and neice, and another look at Barron Fel. Overall a good book.

This book was a definite improvement from Remnant. There is more action, character development and plot twists. Jaina is the star of this book. She's got the best action scenes. I'm glad she's not being depressed and angry as she was in the past few books, even though she was supposed to be over that in Rebel Stand. I despised the way she was portrayed in Destiny's Way. This is a good improvement. I also liked the storyline of Luke, Mara, and Jacen. The romance between Danni and Jacen is one of the more interesting subplots. The whole situation on Bakura was wonderful. Leia, Han, Mara, Danni, and Tekli are all underused though. It focuses on Jaina, Saba, Jacen, and Tahiri. Hopefully that will change in Refugee. All in all, a good addition to the New Jedi Order.

This whole series has me either on the edge of my seat or in tears. Almost every 'Original' character have their own special moments and the 'new' ones keep making names for themselves. Refugee will surely live up to the fans' expectations.

i bought this book two days ago and have devored it. it was really weak after how remmant led us up to something big happening. c'mon leaving luke and gang in amusty old library for most of the book is not what i call filling my hopes. but leia gets the fun part with all the ssi-ruvvi invasion threatening bakura, but other than that the book led me on a noose down a cliff. i reallly hope the do better portraying zonnama sekot because that is the only reason i read this book. also start giving us more on the rinna/tahiri plot as much hangs in the balance on that as zonnamma sekot so bring back again for all his fans out here, okay!!!

This book was a great book but i found that it moved around a little too much for me. Ive read all of the other books in the new jedi order and my favorite is either Traitor or Star By Star. I cant wait for Force Heretic III: Reunion because i am curious about the planet Jacen is looking for, Zonama Sekot.
