If you're not a Star Wars fan, this obviously isn't for you. If you are, though, you've surely wondered this--what happens after the destruction of the Second Death Star? Does the Empire totally crumble with its head cut off? Tyers shows us here that such a thing doesn't, in fact, happen, and as the Empire struggles to keep a hold on power, the Rebel Alliance must fight them in new ways--including making a truce with them, so as to fight off an immediate threat to both groups. Tyers writing is clunky in places, especially in the battle scenes, but this is nevertheless good genre fiction, and it adds some real, and really interesting, depth to the mythology of the Star Wars universe. You learn a lot about Luke's humanity, you learn about the Empire's racism, you learn about other faiths and their relationship to and thinking about the Force.

A nice, fun, piece of pulp that any Star Wars fan should definitely spend a rainy weekend with.
