The new Jedi order completely outpaces anything in the Starwars genre. This series was Dark, exciting, fast paced, and inspired. The writing was fantastic and the level of philosophy and force history was unparalleled. If your a fan at any level of the Starwars Universe than this series is a must read. It is on my top 5 of all time for a series and I treasured every moment I spent in that time. But beware, this isn't your typical Starwars book, be ready for a level of intensity that you've never ...more

This was my first experience with Star Wars fiction, and I loved it so much I am now waiting desperately to get to the bookshop for more! The plot is interesting for an e-book/short story, and certainly draws you in to the Star Wars time period in which it is set.
Third time’s the charm?

That appears to be the case with Del Rey’s latest foray into electronic literature. The third eBook to bear the Star Wars name succeeds on many levels where its predecessors failed. The exception to this rule is in delivery of the content online. In the real world, a books release date means walking into a bookstore on that date and picking up a copy. In many cases, advance ordering is possible. The attractiveness of eBooks is the ‘golden promise’ of not having to pay for
Not much to say here.

This seemed like it was meant to be part of the previous book, Destiny's Way, but had to be cut. I wouldn't be surprised if that was actually the case. As such, it's not bad--Williams is a good writer--but it's not necessary.

Plus we have Thrackan Sal-Solo, literally the most annoying character in the Star Wars EU, taking a prominent role. Yes, he's meant to be annoying. That's done well, but I don't care about him...

There were a couple high points, and parts of it would have
This was a fun little story.

It was weird reading it out of order as I read the main NJO books awhile ago. Cool to revisit and all the fun elements are in play.

Sal-Solo was a likeable antagonist. I want to see him get his comeuppance, but he's a rascal that I don't mind causing trouble.

Good on Lowie for getting some action.

And Post-Traitor Jacen is always wonderful.

Not a bad story, but really just a brief check-in between books. If I had never read it then my enjoyment of NJO would not have been

Worth reading simply for this Sal-Solo line: "Up until now I thought the Jedi were the most pompous, annoying gasbags in creation but that was before I met you. You take the prize for the most preposterous, self important, prolix fiasco I have ever seen. And on top of that you, sir, you are a fish! So sit down and shut up, before I take a harpoon to you."
Was this e-book necessary? What compelled the author to basically write additional chapters? I guess he was having fun with the SW-NJO universe? So far I think Recovery was the only substantial edition to the NJO series.

About the story? There's some political f8ckery, more Shmirra, a decent battle and Jacen comes to terms with his place in the war.
Particularly hearted this one, mostly due to make-outs. (I do not have high standards for Star Wars books, even within The New Jedi Order, which is orders of magnitude better than anything other than the Timothy Zahn novels.)
Ylesia was a quick read and helped add some additional story on the Peace Brigade, amongst other things. It was also nice to see a connection to an older book from the Han Solo Trilogy.
Well written and interesting. This story takes place during the novel Destiny's Way. It's a short story so there isn't a lot of character development but it was fun to read.

Walter Jon Williams has published twenty novels and short fiction collections. Most are science fiction or fantasy -Hardwired, Voice of the Whirlwind, Aristoi, Metropolitan, City on Fire to name just a few - a few are historical adventures, and the most recent, The Rift, is a disaster novel in which "I just basically pound a part of the planet down to bedrock." And that's just the opening chapters ...more
