Like in Luceno last's New Jedi Order tedium-fest, there's some potential here: Han and Droma trying to find Droma's family in the midst of the galaxy's refugee crisis. This plot is actually a lot of fun, with the usual hijinks you expect Han Solo to get into. Unfortunately, the rest of this novel consists of military and political posturing with absolutely no character hook to hang on-- it's just people with titles talking to/about other people with titles.

Even when there is potential for more in the politics, it is squandered: Leia goes to Hapes to convince them to join the fight on the side of the New Republic, but then just stands around while male characters fight over her. (Somehow, women can be marginalized even in the matriarchal society of Hapes.) Then, she has a vague vision of badness again and again, but does nothing about it... then something bad happens! Man, riveting. And, for the two people out there who considered the Corellian Trilogy the high point of Star Wars fiction, Luceno peppers the book with characters from that series so you don't have to miss them anymore.

The followup to Hero's Trial has to spend more time on galactic politics and less on Han Solo in action, and the story bogs down along with the galactic response to an invasion. The times when Han is in the spotlight, though, are as good as those in the first volume. Luceno continues to demonstrate his thorough knowledge of the Expanded Universe. ( )

The Yuuzhan Vong use an alliance with the Hutts to facilitate their next major conquest in their war against the New Republic. Han pulls farther away from Leia as he searches for the family of his Ryn friend Droma. This was a fun action-filled book, and a significant improvement over Hero's Trial. ( )

I think I'm getting ready to give up on the whole "Star Wars Expanded Universe" thing. It really seems like they're trying to stretch the story out as far as they possibly can, and deal with minutiae rather than fleshing out the main storyline and then resolving it in an interesting manner. When I see a story title like "New Jedi Order", I expect to see Jedi ordering shit around, not the adventures of Han Solo and the Space Gypsies! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345428595, Mass Market Paperback)

A string of smashing victories by the forces of the sinister aliens known as the Yuuzhan Vong has left New Republic resources and morale stretched to the breaking point. Leia Organa Solo, estranged from her husband, Han, oversees the evacuation of refugees on planets in the path of the merciless invaders. Luke Skywalker struggles to hold the fractious Jedi Knights together, even while one of them undertakes a bold but reckless undercover mission.

Manipulating their alliance with the amoral Hutts, the Yuuzhan Vong leave a cunning trail of vital information where New Republic agents are sure to find it--information the desperate defenders cannot afford to ignore: the location of the aliens' next target.

Then Han Solo stumbles into the dark heart of raging battle, thus beginning a furious race against time that will require every skill and trick in his arsenal to win...
