I finally finished it! Just some random thoughts (do we need spoiler tags anymore?):

First off I did enjoy it, although I have mixed feelings. It just seemed so different. Maybe I just miss Mara and Jacen. I don't know.
One of my favourite scenes was Luke and Daala's conversation and, really, the whole Jedi/GA conflict. Although I'm with the Jedi on this one: You gotta do the good thing regardless of the rules.
I liked how they replenished the list of bounty hunters in this era, because aside from Boba Fett I can't think of anyone.
About the three plotlines:
Couruscant: my personal favourite.
Dorrin: Pretty good. Ben and Luke were awesome.
Kessel: My least favourite of the three.
Seha's back! I would've liked to see more of her, though.
My favourite line:"I'm too young to be harping about the old days." Haha. I can totally relate.
And finally, didn't it seem like a standalone? Aside from the voice Allana heard, and Valin I can't think of anything that can carry into the next books. I hope they aren't all like that.
Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter east.
