Publisher's Summary

Never before has the incendiary mix of action, politics, and intrigue that has become Timothy Zahn’s trademark, been more evident that in this new Star Wars epic. On the heels of the stunning events chronicled in Star Wars: A New Hope, the newly minted heroes of the Rebellion - fledgling Jedi Luke Skywalker, smuggler turned reluctant freedom-fighter Han Solo, and Princess Leia Organa, a bold leader with a world to avenge - must face the harsh realities of the cataclysmic conflict into which they have so bravely plunged. From this point forward, legends will grow, treachery will abound, and lives will be irrevocably altered, in the long, hard fight to counter the fist of tyranny and restore hope to a galaxy too long in darkness.

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. Han has doubts about waging someone else’s war - and his contentiousness is one more burden for Leia to bear as she struggles to help keep the Rebellion alive. The three have been sent to mediate a dispute between Rebel Alliance factions in Shelsha Sector - agitating matters by forcing Han to deal not only with pirates, but with his more dreaded enemy, politics. At the same time, Mara Jade - all of eighteen and years away from her fateful meeting with Luke - is serving her evil master, Palpatine, well in her role as the Emperor’s Hand: tracking suspected treachery in the Empire to what may be high places - while trying to stay out of Darth Vader’s way.

But the Rebels will prove to be only one of the Empire’s concerns. For Imperial Stormtrooper Daric LaRone, his faith in the Empire shaken by the wanton destruction of Alderaan, will commit a sudden and violent act of defiance, and take four other enforcers with him, in a desperate bid to elude their masters’ wrath.

Each of these fateful actions, whether sanctioned, secret, or scandalous, will expose brutality and corruption, spur upheavals destined to shake the Empire to its core, and shape momentous events yet to come.

    "Enjoyable read with exciting characters."

    this was an enjoyable read, the characters were well-developed and had personality. The one thing about this book I didn't enjoy was its predictability.

    "Star Wars. Allegiance by Timothy Zahn "

    I love the Timothy Zahn books. They add some much depth and personality to the Empire's High Command political structure. Mara Jade and Vader are so cool in this book. A large portion of this book is also told from the perspective of 5 Stormtroopers. I like that the Stormtroopers are humanized in this story.

    "The BEST lead-up story I have read in a LONG time!"

    This story takes place some time after A.N.H. but right before Empire Strikes Back. It's one of the very few stories that takes place from the stormtroopers perspective. Definitely worth it for any true fan of this great galaxy!

    Story
    "I was blown away!"

    The story in this is great. My only problem with it is that it goes against the Star Wars trilogy in a way that feels kind of sacrilegious. The characters in the book all operate in the gray area of right and wrong. While this is one of the things that makes the story amazing it also makes it less Star Wars. In Star Wars everything is straight black or white with no gray. Even Vader who still had good in him was completely Binary in his good/evil behavior. One could argue that Han Solo was gray but he never really does anything overtly evil unless you count gunning down Greedo preemptively.

    On another note I experienced this as an audio book and I highly recommend everyone check it out. They used real Star Wars sound effects and the narrator Marc Thompson is amazing. He does a very convincing Harrison Ford and Mark Hamil. There are dozens of characters in this book and he gives everyone a different voice. This guy is clearly a professional voice actor. It's just amazing how many different voices this man can pull off. I will be looking for more audio books narrated by this guy.
