My brother insisted that I read this book. He's been a Star Wars fan for many years now, and he loved this book when it first came out back in the early 90s. He practically dared me to read it, so what am I going to do? I took him up on it.
And to my surprise, it was actally a really great book. I enjoyed it thoroughly. The story picks up after the end of the 6th movie. Han Solo and Leia are married, and she is pregnant with twins. Luke is a full-blown Jedi, the last of his kind. Or is he?
The Empire is gaining influence, as a new villian, Grand Admiral Thrawn, emerges. He stirs up trouble, as he negotiates a deal with a forgotten Jedi to begin a new war with the Rebel Alliance. And the Rebel Alliance has its own problems, as fractures occur in leadership. +/-
