The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat. The brutal extermination of Alderaan not only demonstrated the magnitude of their murderous power, but served as a chilling testament to their resolve to crush the Rebel uprising. Standing against them, Skywalker, Solo, and the Princess remain uncertain opponents. Luke is gifted and brave, but unschooled in the power he possesses.

What did you love best about Allegiance: Star Wars?

Marc Thompson as always is stellar in his narration, and the middle third in particular made the book hard to put down.

Any additional comments?

Its no spoiler to say Mara Jade makes an appearance in this book as a third of it is from her perspective, but the "missed other plot characters by inches" trope felt a little over done in this book, particularly to anyone who has read further in to the extended universe.

apart from that little gripe, a good book for any star wars or mark Thompson fan.
