For the aliens have a different future in mind for Tahiri, and they will stop at nothing to achieve their horrific ends . . . less
Amazing novel! Greg Keyes is an excellent author, don't know why he only wrote 3 Star Wars books... This story concerns Anakin's quest to save his friend while working with the enemy. Really makes you think!!
Well, since Anakin is my favorite character (and this book is mostly about him), I'm pretty biased, but I remember it being one of my favorites. Especially the end."A salute...A salute of blood to the Jedi!"
bravado study to the Yuuzhan-Vong society hand in hand with blood and pain across the Galaxy mixed with humour and love maybe not seen before...- can not explain if it was expected : but characters as Mezhan Kwaad or Wua Rapung were needed
