about

A string of smashing victories by the forces of the sinister aliens known as the Yuuzhan Vong has left New Republic resources and morale stretched to the breaking point. Leia Organa Solo, estranged from her husband, Han, oversees the evacuation of refugees on planets in the path of the merciless invaders. Luke Skywalker struggles to hold the fractious Jedi Knights together, even while one of them undertakes a bold but reckless undercover mission.

Manipulating their alliance with the amoral Hutts, the Yuuzhan Vong leave a cunning trail of vital information where New Republic agents are sure to find it--information the desperate defenders cannot afford to ignore: the location of the aliens' next target.

Then Han Solo stumbles into the dark heart of raging battle, thus beginning a furious race against time that will require every skill and trick in his arsenal to win...

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another solid entry in the NJO 3.5/5. Doesn't quite live up to it's predecessor but the conclusion to the Han Solo-focused "Agents of Chaos" duology is still very good. Droma and Han make a great team and Anakin Solo continues to shine as one of the EU's best characters. Sets the story well for the next major story in the NJO "Balance Point".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Background Paced similar to part one. Not as epic as other parts of the series but important character development.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A slight disappointment... Having just finished reading the first five books of the New Jedi Order series, I'd have to say this offer from James Luceno was the least enthralling of them all. That being said, the book is not bad by any account, and does manage to move the plot forward at the steady pace it's kept the entire series. However, unlike Luceno's first novel of the series, Hero's Trial, he lacks to identify with a single protagonist - his dramatis personae is too large to work. However, even with the constantly shifting points of view and intermingling plot lines, Luceno conveys enough tension to keep the reader moving. Without shoving them down the reader's throat, he reinforces important new characters (Droma first amongst them) and keeps enough of the old characters to please most fans. Personally I felt cheated there was perhaps a total of thirty pages dealing with Luke, Mara, Jaina, Jacen and Anakin. Focusing on Han is fine, but not focusing on Han or any of the other main characters kind of defeats the purpose. All in all though, a fine book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The New Jedi Order Brings a nemisis to Hero's Trial and sets us up for Balance Point. Not emotionally powerful as the previous book but it still makes good reading. You won't have anything important until you finish this book. Develops the Yuuzhan Vong characteristic of striving to achieving victory at any cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Latest of the NJO (New Jedi Order) Well Star Wars fans, yet another book from the NJO for us. Just like all the previous books, I greatly enjoyed this. With Hero's trial definatly being the stronger one out of the two book set, this one gives the series a nice ending. Filled with Happiness, Sorrow, Death and destruction, its one you won't put down. On with Balance Point!
