I had not read anything by Aaron Allston prior to this book, and I have to say that I think that I have a new favorite in the Star Wars Galaxy. Much like the New Republic in the story, this novel serves to regroup everything before moving on to the rest of the series. Allston adds that which makes it a bit more fun. The bad: Some was a little too spectacular, and too neat, left hanging on a few issues. I also started to really get a sense for Warmasters Tzulkang Lah and his son, Tsavong Lah. So he organizes a strike team consisting of himself, his wife Mara, Tahiri Veila, and Wraith Squadron in order to infiltrate Coruscant and then find and eliminate the dark presence there. I gave up on the new Jedi order and the legends books as a whole when Disney first announced their non canonical status, but recently in my lack of available Star Wars books to read I've decided to give it another shot.
Cependant, il n'y a pas te temps à perdre s'ils ne veulent pas être complètement anéanti par les Vong. I almost feel bad for Viqi Shesh. I was glad to see that not all characters were despondent and dramatic with their situations and this gave the reader some hope that our heroes do have a fighting chance. It takes the characters into new situations which forces them to grow, and the style of the writer makes it easier to engage and really, really, really enjoy the book. Side note: my previous review covered Enemy Lines 1, where I suspected that the first book would be significantly better paced with the second book in the duology, rather than standing on its own. As I've been going through them now, I largely feel like I hadn't missed much. No surprise it's at the hands of Aaron All The New Jedi Order has been one setback after another for the heroes, who are often hampered by the political establishment, because that's just how it goes.
Suddently, the chances of escaping appear nearly impossible. Cant wait to go through the next one. Will Luke be successful in his mission? While all this is happening, Wedge, and the soldier on Borleais, are crafting a highly theatrical deception, with a purpose to use against the Vong. In fact, if you switch the Yuuzhan Vong and the New Republic, this book is a good example of how the earlier books should have been written. The Borleas story is great because it pits two master strategists - General Antilles and former Warmaster Czulkang Lah against each other in a grand confrontation. Allston has done a great job with this novel, and I must applaud him for it.
Wedge is seemlessly inserted into a more Force-driven novel with his wit and brilliance intact. Of course, Allston wrote several X-Wing books, so that should come as a no-brainer. On voit les dégâts qu'a causé cette invasion sur la planète et on voit comment s'arrangent les survivants. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. The bad: Some was a little too spectacular, and too neat, left hanging on a few issues.
As the fighting in the Borleias system increases, it attracts the expertise of Supreme Commander Czulkang Lah, father of Warmaster Tsavong Lah, who soon becomes Wedge Antilles's enemy in the occupation of Borleias. How long will the file be downloaded? This site is like a library, Use search box in the widget to get ebook that you want. It was nice to see Luke, Mara, and Tahiri banding together to fight him. But I also eagerly await future, surely masterful, story installments crafted by Allston for the Star Wars fan to gobble and enjoy! This is the second book of a duology and part of a bigger series. Possible writing in margins, possible underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text. On one hand, they lost Borleias to the Yuuzhan Vong; on the other, they destroyed a worldship using Lusankya.
With that, I adore the Wraiths, and that Danni and Tahiri were on planet with the Skywalkers. Jaina is portrayed as a young woman going through difficult times, and not knowing how to deal with her emotions. Scattering after the Yuuzhan Vong's invasion of Coruscant, the panic-stricken members of the New Republic Advisory Council pause just long enough to set up a mock defense on nearby Borleias and attempt to buy time - which fools no one, least of all the Jedi. And while that does somewhat crop up, Danni is way too easy to penetrate through Tam's facade, even though she doesn't know him from Bail. So far most of the cannon novels have been average for me except Lost Stars and Thrawn, and some of it has been downright bad on occasion Another excellent legends book non cannon! But first the Yuuzhan Vong must be contained once and for all.
To find out what happens in this novel, pick up a copy today! Still, it was an enjoyable read and Allston has certainly evolved in terms of his skills as a Star Wars writer. The Lusankya capital ship, with a crew of one, has a huge spike concealed inside, and the captain uses it to ram the Vong Worldship and destroy it, escaping in a Y-Wing. I nearly cheered in my room. The book takes you way beyond the movies. It's about time that we see how those on planet dealt with the Yuuzhan Vong. Granted, a lot of that is from all the war, but I think Nyax sending out powerful bursts of energy and ripping into the Grand Master is the main catalyst.
I thought Allston was going to take Kell somewhere in this story, but. I had no problem picturing any of the characters as he remains true to their character. One of the many wonderful aspects of the New Jedi Order series is it's scope and complexity. The Battle of Borleias is where things really take off, in explosive fashion. And in space, another battle rages, one that holds ominous consequences for the New Republic—and for the Jedi themselves.
