Merciless attacks by an invincible alien force have left the New Republic reeling. Dozens of worlds have succumbed to occupation or annihilation, and even the Jedi Knights have tasted defeat. In these darkest of times, the noble Chewbacca is laid to rest, having died as heroically as he lived--and a grief-stricken Han Solo is left to fit the pieces of his shattered soul back together before he loses everything: friends, family, and faith.Refusing help from Leia or Luke, Han becomes the loner he once was, seeking to escape the pain of his partner's death in adventure . . . and revenge. When he learns that an old friend from his smuggling days is operating as a mercenary for the enemy, he sets out to expose the traitor. But Han's investigation uncovers an even greater evil: a sinister conspiracy aimed at the very heart of the New Republic's will and ability to fight--the Jedi.Now Han must face down his inner demons and, with the help of a new and unexpected ally, honor Chewbacca's sacrifice in the only way that matters--by being worthy of it.
Original
Han Solo has pretty much been missing from the New Jedi Order series since the death of Chewbacca in book one. He retreated to Coruscant to drink and mope around the apartment and hasn't done a lot. In book 4, Hero's Trial, he's back front and center. After a brief period of peace on Kashyyyk to attend Chewie's funeral, Han finds himself right back in the middle of things as an old friend named Captain Roa seeks his aid in hunting down one of their former colleagues amed Reck Desh. Why are they looking for Reck? Reck leads a group called the Peace Brigade that is helping the Yuuzhon Vong in their quest to conquer the galaxy. Roa holds Reck responsible for the death of his wife and Han is seeking revenge for the death of Chewbacca, so their interests are aligned. Han wants to take on this mission all quiet like and wants no help from the New Republic or Leia and Luke. He doesn't even want to use the Millenium Falcon on the run because it just reminds him of his missing co-pilot.

The other main plot thread of the novel is that the Yuuzhan Vong have realized that the Jedi are the biggest threat to their plans. The main Vong baddie of the book, a priest named Harrar, has come up with a way to eliminate the Jedi in one fell swoop. He enlists the aid of an assassin priestess named Elan to do the job. Her mission will be to pose as a defector and gain the trust of the New Republic by giving them intel on the Vong's battle strategies. Once she gets a meeting with the Jedi she will activate a lethal bioweapon that will kill them all.

The cool thing about the New Jedi Order series to me is that since there are so many volumes, the writers have so much more opportunity to develop characters than they would in a six hour movie trilogy. You can take your time building up plot and characterization, focus on different characters or plots and you don't have to put all of your bang in one book. For example, by the end of book four of this series, Luke Skywalker has only really had one big fight scene and I think that was two books ago. You can kind of have him hovering in the background and not in the forefront because you have so many volumes yet to come. You feel like he will get his soon enough.

Han so far, except for book one, has been treated similar to Luke. I feel like the first 3 books were about setting up Han and Leia's kids as characters in their own right. This volume was the first to focus on one of the original trilogy characters almost exclusively.

I enjoyed this book even though I felt a bit cheated that Han's trademark blaster pistol saw very little action since his gun's power pack wasn't charged for a majority of the novel. It was also a bit disappointing that he wasn't piloting the Falcon. Those are minor squabbles though. I will definitely be continuing the series and am curious to see what happens in the next book.

I'd previously read Luceno's Labyrinth of Evil and had to put it down so it all just seemed so aimless. His writing is okay, but not as good as others.

This book deals with Han grieving over Chewie's loss and a rather throwaway plot dealing with a Vong who supposedly knows something about Mara's disease.

This book could be easily skipped.

The story is good and James Luceno is a great author. I have a problem with the size of the book though. It says that there are 350 pages, which is a little short for 7.99, but the book ends at 65%. So the story is really only 220 pages. I hate to say it, but get this book at the library.

On a different note. This is my second time reading this series and its every bit as good as I remember. Wish Disney hadn't thrown this content out.

I'd give it another have star, but they don't have a box for that. Han is back, but I feel you'll find him a little different. He still seems to be going through the healing process. I don't remember him being so angry all the time, but as with anyone going through the loss of a good friend, it takes time. The Vong seem to be invincible, but fortunately for everyone, they have human flaws. They don't think of every detail. Slow moving at the start, but it gets going toward the end. Star Wars fans read and enjoy.

Came in the scheduled delivery window and was of good quality.

Really enjoying the character development of the Solo Kids as well as Mara.

The newest threat to the galaxy also continues to provide extra anxiety about whats going to happen next.

Great series.
Excellent read, the entire series so far is a page turner. Also a bit darker than previous star wars books I have read. Done with this book and cannot wait to start the next!
