I purchased this book because James Luceno wrote it, but I don't know when I'll get around to it. Maybe I'll read a couple chapters today and that will just pull me in....I hope Smile

I think it will Aush. It's a great book in just about every way. :D

Absolutely loved seeing a 3-dimensonal Allana.

Haven't quite finished it yet, but I'm getting close. And boy is there some greatness in this book. Luceno has brought back Han and Leia to their former glory, along with 3P0. Allana is also coming along well and I'm glad they went the route that they did for her. Plus Jadak is probably one of the best non-Force, non-Mando characters I've read about lately. I must say the book was a little slow for me to warm up to at first, but a quarter of the way in, I was really starting to get into it. Now I'll have to see if the end holds up to the rest.

And there's some great teasers at the FOTJ series in here. I can't wait Very Happy

Agreed Skuldren. I loved seeing 3PO actually do something and it was great to see him back. I also loved Han's line about him as well. Smile

Oh, I forgot to ask but did anyone else feel like they were reading Indiana Jones in the last few pages?

I just finished it. It was better than a lot of LotF and renewed my faith in the EU. It was really nice to see a book focus on Han and Leia again. Its been since what, Tattooine Ghost? But yeah, decent book. Not the greatest of endings. Simply wasn't impressed with that, but its serving as a nice lead in to FotJ Outcast. I'm really excited for that now.

I did have a little trouble trying conceptualize the end. I couldn't quite picture the scene he was trying to describe.

Agh! *covers ears* I'm still waiting for my copy to arrive from the library, but I must say I'm not the most patient person. Sad

There was one odd statement made by Leia about Caedus' body after death. I'm not really sure what she meant by it though. They didn't mentioned any funerals though.
