Where the last book left off with nine million characters all in different settings, most of whom we don't care about or remember, this book gives us the added service of opening by saying where everybody is. That's helpful. ON WITH THE SHOW!
Lando is on a semi-sentient spaceship built by the Qella. Spoiler Alert: Get ready for some insane plot twists as him, Lobot, Threepio, and R2D2 discover...ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! YEAH! I LOVE MY STAR WARS BOOKS TO SPEND THE ENTIRE TIME TALKING ABOUT MINUTE DETAILS REGARDING A SEMI-SENTIENT SHIP WHICH COULD ACTUALLY BE INTERESTING IF HANDLED WITH TACT.
Meanwhile, Luke is off with Akanah on a road trip. The end.
Meanwhile meanwhile, Leia (I think) is about to be impeached because the Senate are a bunch of boring old white guys who got nothing better to do than bore the reader. Did you like "The Phantom Menace?" WELL THEN YOU'LL LOVE THIS!
Meanwhile meanwhile meanwhile, Han is with the Fleet about to put the hurt on the Yevetha, or something. I think he gets captured, maybe?
MEANWHILE MEANWHILE MEANWHILE MEANWHILE, Chewie is still on Kashyyyk, but don't worry, he'll be back in the next book to save it from me ripping out every single page and flushing it down the toilet.
Tune in next book where Leia's assistant gets her a cup of coffee. LET'S SPEND A WHOLE CHAPTER TALKING ABOUT THIS ONE-TIME, MINOR CHARACTER! YEAH!
