Overview

Star Wars The New Rebellion by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch brings her remarkable talents to the Star Wars(r) universe, where the New Republic faces sudden and total annihilation....

Somewhere in the galaxy, millions suddenly perish--a disruption of the Force so shocking it is felt by Luke at his Jedi academy and by Leia on Coruscant.  While Leia must deal with an assassination attempt, a rumored plot against the New Republic, and allegations that Han Solo is involved, Luke seeks out a former Jedi student who may hold the key to the mass destruction.  But Brakiss is only the bait in a deadly trap set by a master of the dark side who is determined to rule as emperor.  He's targeted Luke, Leia, and Leia's Jedi children to die.  Then billions will follow, in a holocaust unequaled in galactic history.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

First, the story is well written. fits nicely into the expanded universe. all of the main characters make their mark in this story. Artoo and Threepio provide the story with their usual banter back and forth, all the while, they actually accomplish something that people think droids can't/shouldn't do. if you're a fan of the classic jedi vs sith, i wouldn't say this book is so. But, what i can say is how Busch (author) puts a whole-hearted attempt to put a spin on the struggles luke, leia, and the bunch go through. i think it brings out the depth that make star wars so captivating.

This book was excellent. I'd compare it to the Thrawn Trilogy. It was a good read and finished it in less than a week.

I thought this book was way cool. The suspence and adventure made even the kids I was telling about this book to seemed excited. I hope she writes another one!

This thing sucked majorly. It only had few plot points to it and you can more or less debate the ending from the half way point. It was BAD. Don't ever get this if you liked the other novels in the Star Wars galaxy I beg of you.

Star Wars the New Rebellion tells the tale of (like most post ROTJ Star wars novels) Han, Luke, and Leia. trying to establish a healthy New Republic, the force sensitives are shocked as thousands die. a new evil possibly greater than the Emperor in the dark side with Brakiss as his 'apprentice' is ready to cause havoc and mayhem.

I loved this book!! It really brought out the same type of plot from the movies. Although it wasent as good as some of the other Star Wars books I would recomend it.

I am a biiiigggg fan of Star Wars and I loved The New Rebellion! It's very mysterious, cool, scary, and all around good! Once again the new Republic is being attacked, but this time the threat may be bigger than the Empire. Star Wars lovers prepare to be amazed by The New Rebellion!
