Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I am sorry but, this novel is not even worth criticing. Here's what happends: Luke finds a ship in space, ship picks up people, ship picks up Luke, Luke falls in love with a ghost. The end. It was long, boring and Mrs. Hambly needs to never write an other Star Wars novel AGAIN. I was gritting my teeth while reading it. I hope to God that, if she writes again, it has been improved a thousand times fold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I can honestly say this is the worst Star Wars book I have ever read. It's as if the author has never seen a Star Wars film and therefore had no clue how the characters would act. Skip over this one. It's a complete waste of time. You can read all about Calista in the prolouge of the next book 'Darksaber'.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ugh not great Now that one was a pain to read. I love a good book with description and all that, but ugh this one went to far. To the point that there was hardly any action at all. I love to read and all but this one, I'd find my self just getting fed up with it and stopping. I wanted to see what happened, for the sake of the time line and all that, so I'd have half a clue what was going on in the next one, but it wasn't easy. Its like theres too much info and description thrown at the reader all at once, its hard to follow whats actually going on. very little dialog. This is definitely not on my top list of favorite books.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointement As soon as I started this book, I could just tell it was going to be excrutiating. As much as I appreciate details, this book was simply too much. There is actually very little action in the story and lots and lots and lots of babble babble. The caracters have no personnalities (even Leia, Luke, etc.): they are just plain boring. I read this one for the sake of the Star wars timeline but the pace is so slow I couldn't wait to finish it. Ms. Hambly's style does not make me look forward to her second book (Planet of Twilight).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yeuch!!!! This was one bad book. It wasn't as much the story, but the way it was written. Barbara didn't do a good job with the characters in this one. With Luke constantly switching between concious and un-concious, it was hard to tell what was a dream and what was really happening. Sometimes the dreams were written better than the real. The only reason I'd get this is to make sense of the next two: Darksabre and Planet of Twilight. If written by another author, this book could have been great. Unfortunately it wasn't.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this book should get a 0 If you decide to never ever buy a book, make it this one. I see that my review greatly clashes with the other reviews so far. Let me assure you that I am a great Star Wars fan. I found this book extremely boring and very hard to follow. I read the 1st 10 pages 10 times to try and make some sense out of it, and I still didn't get it (I'm not dumb). I never read beyond those pages, thats how boring I thought it was. Personally, I don't like Hambly's writing at all. She also wrote Planet of Twilight, and although I finished that one, it too was very boring and hard to follow. So to re-cap things, this book is not good. Don't buy it. If you're that desparate to read it, get it from the library first. You might just be one of the people who like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book worthy of the title Star Wars!!!! This book captured my attention the moment I opened it and kept me reading until the last words. A definite must read for Star Wars fans of all ages. Barbara did a wonderful job of depicting the characters, and the suspense is wonderful. Don't miss out!!
