<b><i><font color=red>Enemy Lines II: Rebel Stand</b></i></font> by Aaron Allston
<i>Luke Skywalker?s daring mission to halt the Yuuzhan Vong?s nefarious plot to overthrow the New Republic is struggling on all fronts. And time is slipping away for Han and Leia Organa Solo, trapped on a small planet whose rulers are about to yield to Yuuzhan Vong pressure to give up the Jedi rebels.
On Coruscant, Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker have made a shocking discovery that is preventing the Yuuzhan Vong from exerting complete control. But when the enemy tracks them down, Luke and Mara are thrust into a fierce battle for their lives. Suddenly, the chances of escaping appear nearly impossible. And in space, another battle rages, one that holds ominous consequences for the New Republic?and for the Jedi themselves. . . .</i>
Anyone else besides me think that the lightsaber duels was the main thing the NJO was lacking until now? Lord Nyax was sweet
Lord Nyax did rock....i cant imagine fighting with all thsoe lightsabers attached to me tho....this was a great book....both books in this series were awsome
Unlocked and upped by request.
Compared to Part I, this one didn't focus on the character development quite as much. Instead, it upped the action and that was fine with me. Between the Coruscant mission and the encounter with Nyax and the big Battle of Borleias, this book was quite a thrill ride. It's nice to see the return of the Dark Side after so many books dealing with the Force-absent Vong. I also liked Viqi Shesh's end. For such a hate-able character, she sure gets a great death scene. More wonderful AA humor, especially with the Artoo scenes. It's great to see the droids actually get to do something. Another fun, if uncomplicated (even less than Part I) story.
