On the surface, it seems like just another routine contract for Boba Fett and his Mandalorian commandos, but the mystery client who hires them to start a small war is more dangerous than any of them can possibly imagine. When the Yuuzhan Vong invasion force sweeps into the galaxy, the Mandalorians find they’re on the wrong side–fighting for an alien culture that will bring about the end of their own.

Now Fett has to choose between his honor and the survival of his people. Since he’ s a practical man, he’s determined help the resistance beat the Yuuzhan Vong–even if it means working with a Jedi agent. Trouble is, no one trusts a man with Fett’ s reputation. So convincing the New Republic that they’re fighting on the same side is a tall order. Denounced as traitors, Fett’s Mandalorians need to stay one step ahead of their Yuuzhan Vong paymasters–and the Republic who sees them as collaborators with the most destructive enemy the galaxy has ever faced. . . .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a 'novella' story I enjoyed and have always enjoyed Ms. Traviss' take on the Mandalorians. She paints a wonderful picture of apparent mercenaries, dong the most difficult thing, fighting for the wrong side to gain valuable intelligence all while no one can know the good that they are doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but.... Well good short story, and Karen Travis makes me keep reading every time. But it was a huge, huge cliff hanger! Like lame lame lame cliff hanger. You'll read it, love it and be mad that it left you wanting the rest of the story. Bummer.
