This is nothing short of a Zahn masterpiece. Don't be daunted by the length of this novel, every minute is crammed with Star Wars magic and every minute is brought to life by the maestro of Star Wars narration that is Marc Thompson. Although this novel is beautifully woven with many subplots, the strongest moments of this novel come from the budding relationship between our favourite farm boy and Mara Jade. The story may seem a little wierd at the start but as it progresses it starts to completely make sense and by the end, you can't help but applaud the skill and effort shown by the grand-daddy of Star Wars novels. In conclusion, this novel must be read by any fan of Star Wars, although I STRONGLY recommend that you read the Thrawn Trilogy and the prequel to this book (Spectre of the Past) in order to fully appreciate the story.

Simple story very well acted throughout. some loose ends and unexplored sections that were worthy of more. Nevitts part could have had a more significant payoff. But overall worth listening to both parts.
Great fun overall. And fun voices from Thompson, though the flying creatures can be a little hard to take.
It's a bit 'over written' in places, but good character development for real Star Wars fans.
this is the story the movies should have used. what a great way to wrap things up. loved it
This was a very hot and cold book for me. There were times I was completely hooked and then times I found myself really bored.
I felt the overall story was a bit weak and left some areas unresolved. Once again though the narrator was fantastic and truly bought the book to life.
