Om forfatteren

Aaron Allston was born in Corsicana, Texas on December 8, 1960. He attended the University of Texas, at Austin, briefly, intending to study journalism, but after a semester at the university and a year working for The Austin American Statesman newspaper, he found he did not particularly like either vis mere college or journalism. At that point, he went to work for Space Gamer magazine and quickly moved up to the position of editor. He also began designing supplements to role-playing games, such as Dungeons and Dragons, on a freelance basis. By 1983, he was working full-time as a freelance game designer and editor. His first novel, Web of Danger, was based on the Top Secret/S.I. game line. His other works include the Wraith Squadron series for the Star Wars Expanded Universe line, Galatea in 2-D, and Doc Sidhe. He died from heart failure on February 27, 2014. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

FROM AMAZON: Repercussions from the dark side's fatal seduction of Jacen Solo and the mysterious plague of madness afflicting young Jedi continue to wreak havoc galaxy-wide. Having narrowly escaped the deranged Force worshippers known as the Mind Walkers, and a deadly Sith hit squad, Luke and Ben Skywalker are in pursuit of the now masterless Sith apprentice. It is a chase that leads to the forbidding planet Dathomir, where an enclave of powerful dark-side Force-wielders will give Vestara the edge she needs to escape - and where the Skywalkers will be forced into combat for their quarry and their lives.

Meanwhile, Han and Leia have completed their own desperate mission, shuttling madness-stricken Jedi from Coruscant to a safe haven in the Transitory Mists and beyond the grasp of Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala. But the bold maneuver has intensified Daalas fury, and she is determined to shatter Jedi Order resistance once and for all.

Yet no greater threat exists than that which still waits in the depths of the distant Maw Cluster: a being of pure, ravenous dark-side energy named Abeloth calls out across the stars to Jedi and Sith alike. For some it may be the ultimate source of answers crucial to their survival. For others it could be the ultimate weapon of conquest. But for all, it is a game-changing and life-altering encounter of untold magnitude and a tactical gambit with unimaginable consequences.

Two words: Ewok jokes. Absolutely hilarious book that deals with some serious issues as well.

I really enjoyed this book for several reasons. There was still a sense of urgency and foreboding as is normal of the Star Wars universe, but it was also light-hearted. It was also nice to see the whole anti-Jedi feelings that had been hanging around for quite a long time finally coming to fruitation and causing long term issues for the Jedi.

Then there was the chance to see Luke and Ben together. Mara will always be my favorite character but due to the massive events of the previous novels we rarely got to see Luke and Ben together, their relationship is brilliant to read and very amusing at times. I loved the witty banter, and especially the scene where Ben starts singing an ewok song to Luke :D… (mere)

This is the 4th book of the Legacy series. It has amazing pacing and balance between switching points of view.
Unfortunately, I didn't much enjoy Ben's storyline. But If you like reading about Ben Solo, the second half of this book should work for you. It's heavily focused on him. On the other hand, I was pleased that Jaina showed up finally for more than a few lines.
So far the least impressive book, but not bad by any means.
