New York Times best-selling author Barbara Hambly returns to the Star Wars universe to tell a breathtaking tale of a mysterious world where the battle between the New Republic and the Empire takes a shocking new twist.

Nam Chorios is a barren backwater planet that was once a dreaded prison colony and is now home to a fanatical religious cult. It is here that Princess Leia has been taken captive by a ruthless and charismatic warlord bent on destroying the New Republic. Meanwhile, Luke lands on a mysterious planet in search of his lost love, Callista, only to discover the Force is his own worst enemy. But worst of all, as Han, Chewie, and Lando leave Coruscant on a desperate rescue mission, a strange life-form, unlike any the galaxy has ever seen, awakens - a life-form so malevolent it will destroy everything, both Empire and New Republic, on its path to domination.

    " If you're a fan of Luke, don't read this - he's a major pansy in this. Just sayin'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 12/30/2013

    " Decent, but could have been better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wealhtheow | 12/22/2013

    " I totally don't remember the story, although apparently it's heavy on the Leia. And it has nice cover art! That counts for something. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Begum | 12/20/2013

    " I read some of it... It's very nice even though I didn't understand what was going on. :P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Callista | 12/19/2013

    " The alien creatures that capture Leia gave me the creeps. Hambly has a real gift for description and atmosphere. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 12/13/2013

    " Ok...I'm beginning to think that I'm just not a fan of Barbara Hambly's take on Star Wars. I didn't exactly dislike this as much as finding it...utterly unmemorable and deadly dull. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donsmaniac | 12/10/2013

    " utter rubbish!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 12/8/2013

    " stunningly fast-paced star wars saga on planet of sentient crystals "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zekkaina (LadyDragonKeeper) | 12/5/2013

    " More like 1.5 ... but I'm feeling generous. I didn't hate it, but definitely not one of the best Star Wars novels out there. Read it only if you want to check this one off your list as read. =) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mark | 10/12/2013

    " This is the single worst EU book, but blessedly it is the last appearance by Callista, so at least there's that. Back on the Luke/Mara train after this! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeff | 7/14/2013

    " I can remember my 7th grade mind wondering, "How could any book about characters like Luke, Leia, and Han be so unbelievably boring and bland?" Stick to Timothy Zahn. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 6/6/2013

    " I still don't buy Luke and Callista. And Barbara Hambly is not one of my fave authors for this franchise. I feel like she rushes through things and fails to describe setting well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blair Beveridge | 2/7/2013

    " I am a big fan of this Star Wars novel arc. Callista is a great character, and I persoanlly recommend thes "

    " WHY DID I READ SO MANY STAR WARS BOOKS "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melodee | 10/1/2012

    " This book is a good read for anyone who really enjoys sci-fi or the Star Wars series. I did find it difficult to keep track of all the species, planets and systems, types of conveyances and weapons. But it was an enjoyable summer read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carlos Chavez | 3/2/2012

    " a little boring barbara hambly needs to cut it down with her descriptions of venues. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachael | 2/6/2012

    " I got bored and haven't actually quite finished reading it yet. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 2/5/2012

    " Skip this one unless you are a really big Star Wars fan. The plot is dry, and the book really doesn't fit in with the rest of the Star Wars universe. Stick with Timothy Zahn or Kevin J. Anderson. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Merida | 7/23/2011

    " I've fortunately blocked most of this book from my memory, but it was really, really bad. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 7/14/2011

    " I didn't like this book at all. Of course I still read the whole thing hoping that it would get better "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Endor | 1/15/2011

    " It took me a month to read. It was very slow moving. I am very happy because Callista is gone! Finally! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eric | 9/29/2010

    " This story was the worst, it was hard to tell what was going on in the beginning not because the story was complicated but because the writing was terrible. And then when it became a little more clear what was going on I couldn't care less about the events. Just a terrible book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachael | 7/5/2010

    " I got bored and haven't actually quite finished reading it yet. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wesley | 6/22/2010

    " Terrible book and if I remember right, really conflicts with the prequels. She should have never been allowed to write in the Star Wars world. Her characters were not even close to relatable to how they behaved in the movies or other "expanded" universe books.

    Skip this one. "
