About this deal

The acknowledgments came in; and with a shiver from the steel deck beneath him, the huge AT-AT walker was off, lumbering its deceptively awkward-looking way through the forest toward the encampment a kilometer away. This time the main story arc sees the Empire and the New Republic in a desperate race to discover the location of the Dark Force, the Katana fleet of nearly 200 Dreadnoughts, that went missing under mysterious circumstances during the Clone Wars. Esta trilogía es demasiado dependiente de la Trilogía Original, entendedme, me encantan las pelis antiguas de Star Wars, el Imperio Contrataca es mi favorita junto a la Venganza de los Sith.

Every time I encounter Thrawn in the Star Wars universe, I’m impressed with how excellent of a villain he is. Zahn was able to keep the first book so interesting because he was setting up the excellent story, introducing us to new characters and worlds, and getting us up to speed on our old favorites from the original trilogy. Maybe it would have worked better if we got inside Thrawn's head this time but it's still the same thing where it's all through the point of view of captain Palleon. Finally the “Essential Legends Collection” cover, which now not only focuses entirely on Han and Leia but removes Thrawn entirely.Directly ahead, the star was a marble-sized yellow-orange ball, its intensity moderated by its distance and by the viewports’ automatic sunscreens.

The whole mystery of the Katana fleet, mixed with the whole race to see who will get there first is already exciting enough.From all four sides of the open area, in nearly perfect parade-ground unison, the other three AT-ATs appeared from the forest cover in the predawn gloom, the AT-STs and hoverscouts clustered around their feet quickly fanning out on all sides to encircle the darkened buildings. Princess Leia was the most improved of the characters and she had the most interesting story arc in this installment. Several sourcebooks were released based on the novels; the second book, Dark Force Rising Sourcebook, takes its material from the second novel of the trilogy, Dark Force Rising.

Es cierto que es muy Sherlock Holmes, pero aquí todo lo hace aprendiendo el arte de su enemigo, y eso creo que es algo flojo.Realmente yo lo que quiero leer es la saga de la Nueva Orden Jedi hacia adelante, donde las tramas se vuelven más enrevesadas, los personajes mueren a manos de enemigos implacables, la política está mucho más desarrollada y los héroes lo pasan muy mal. I think you have to have seen the Star Wars movies so that you know what Jedi are, but I don't think you have to be one of those people who knows the name of every alien in the Mos Eisley cantina to enjoy the books. It's as though you as the reader are constantly being turned towards and winked at every few chapters, in case you forgot you were reading a Star Wars book.

People complain that Thrawn has been a disappointment on Star Wars Rebels and that because he is underused and hasn't done major damage yet, it's a betrayal to the character. Swan thought the book "feels tentative and inclusive; there doesn't seem to be enough material to justify a 144-page book. Mara goes to finish him off but Luke stops her, talking about how he saved his father from the Dark Side to there’s still a chance.Zahn is best known for his Star Wars novels ( Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, The Last Command, Specter of the Past, Vision of the Future, Survivor’s Quest, Outbound Flight, Allegiance, Choices of One, and Scoundrels ), with more than four million copies of his books in print. The middle story in the Thrawn Trilogy does what all good middle chapters do and moves the story on enough to keep things interesting but any kind of resolution to any of the introduced characters is left for the finale. I especially love Luke in these moments, because he treats her with such respect and kindness, even as he knows she wants to kill him. It is the second volume of Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy, following Heir to the Empire ( 1991) and preceding The Last Command ( 1993). It could well be that in the rush to evacuate his base he left some crucial bit of information behind.
