This is not the best example of a Star Wars novel. The writing is amateurish and the storyline is filled with improbable happenings. Too, the characters don't hold true to who they are in the films and in later novels. Disappointing. ( )

Always fun to read a book where there is such a well-built set of characters. ( )

As a Star Wars book this does not hold up for obvious reasons, but taken on it's own as an action adventure story it was a fun read.
Even though I read this ages ago, I still have a strong memory of specific scenes, characters and places that were created in this book. I loved Hin and Kee, hated Captain-Supervisor Grammel and was fascinated by they underground area and the Coway and while Vader in this book isn’t really very Vaderlike, he actually felt more like a real person to me than in he did in any other story.
The ending was a bit lame and under developed and rushed, but the journey there was fun and worth it for me. ( )
