Publisher's Summary

As Leia must deal with a new threat to the fragile alliance that binds the New Republic, Lando becomes a prisoner aboard a runaway spacecraft of unknown origin. The ship is following an unstoppable path to its homeworld, destroyed by Imperial forces. Luke continues his quest to learn more about his mother among the Fallanassi, where his every belief about the use of the Force is about to be challenged. And while Leia ponders a diplomatic solution to the aggression of the fierce Yevetha race, Han pilots a spy ship into the heart of Yevethan space and finds himself a hostage on one of the vast fleet of warships under the command of a ruthless leader.

Anthony Heald must go!!

Yet another disappointing read by Heald. The only reason I listen to his reads is out of love for the books, not him!!!

Main plot is good. Side plots are less than par.

The whole sideplot of Luke searching for his mother is beyond dull and annoying. The plot with Lando is so far ok(ish). The main plot is fairly well written and entertaining.

It's the middle.

Story, characters, and arcs all underway. But, as much as I liked what I heard, there's no getting around that the design strength/flaw is the lack of resolution and the build up. The Lando and Luke plots meander a little too long, and it being "Book 2/3" is really too noticeable to not criticise. The issue should be resolved by the Leia plot line coming to a crescendo, but it sets up a familiar cliff-hanger, that simply doesn't satisfy the problem.
Hoping book 3 has the goods. /fingers crossed!
