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.

Gay characters seemed forced

The story and the characters were pretty good and it's worth seeing more where it goes. But the gay characters? I am not upset that there are gay characters, I'm just upset about how they were written in. It just seems super forced at the last reveal. If it hadn't been for that it would have made the writing better. Instead of just having gay characters to have gay characters. How it was written takes away from the story. Instead of being a star wars book it becomes some weird agenda. Bummer.

In this stirring, sword-rattling chapter in New York Times best-selling author Brian Jacques' beloved series, questions of right and wrong do not have simple answers. Abandoned by his evil warlord father Swartt Sixclaw, the ferret Veil is raised at Redwall. But when he commits an unforgivable crime, he is banished forever. So when Swartt goes on a rampage, Veil must make a choice. He can either fight for the father who orphaned him, or for those who turned him away.

This is one of the better Redwall books. It breaks from the traditional, puzzel being solved at redwall, while a hero goes on a quest way to young and back a hero that Brian did for several others. Great book overall.
