** spoiler alert ** This book is classic Star Wars. Allston's second NJO book definitely does not dissappoint and is an excellent continuation of what he started in Rebel Dream. This book ties off a couple of loose ends, creates a few more, and has the combat action that's been missing for some time. Without giving away too much, I will say that Kyp is becoming a very likeable character and I hope the future NJO authors continue to develop his story. Tahiri becomes slightly more complex in this book, and it's a great character shift. Viqi Shesh's role is perfectly on character. Don't expect to see much of Jaina, Jag, Kyp, or Janson (who IS back), but they do appear at crucial moments. Also keep in mind that Jacen is nowhere in this book, but he'll be back in Traitor, so it's all for the anticipation.

This story mainly focuses on Han and Leia who are (finally) back in character, and the Coruscant mission. Luke's and especially Mara's lines/actions are also much more consistent with their character than what was written in Rebel Dream; thanks to Allston for paying attention to this.

This is a great plot, and a needed addition to the NJO storyline. You should definitely read Rebel Dream before reading Rebel Stand; I recommend reading Children of the Jedi by Barbara Hambley to understand who Roganda Ismaren and Lord Nyax really are, because it is not mentioned by Allston. Definitely a must-read for all SW fans and any following the NJO series- you'll enjoy it immensely.
