This book does such a good job of going back and filling in some to the holes left by the fast paced movies. Even if it's not considered "Cannon" @ Star Wars reader will love it.

I actually wrote my first bad review about the first book in this series, but this book has fixed many of the things that I did not like about the first. It did start a bit slow, but it built well through the book. Thank you for the "New Hope" you have given me about the future of the Star Wars universe.

The second Death Star has been destroyed, the emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down. Devastating blows against the Empire and major victories for the Rebel Alliance. But the battle for freedom is far from over. As the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance - now a fledgling New Republic - presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy's scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate. But above the remote planet Akiva, an ominous show of the enemy's strength is unfolding.

It is a pity that the EU was abandoned for this...

I have read or listened to probably 40 + of the EU books, and even the worst of those was far better than this. It was an erratic, sloppy mess. One of the things that I hated the most was that the author could not decide whether he was writing Star Wars, or earth (most of the references to animals in this book are earth animals, not some fantasy animal existing in the Star Wars vocabulary or new ones to describe). I know it seems small, but that is one of the many thing that were done very poorly in this book.

It will not run this Star Wars fan off (yet), but they are going to have to up their game if they want to be as good as what star wars fans are used to.
