The Yuuzhan Vong have inflamed long-forgotten vendettas that are even now building up to crisis point. And as Han and Leia journey on their quest to knit the unraveling galaxy back together, betrayal and deception await them. . . .</i>
Okay, so this one gives me a better understanding of why most people dont like the Force Heretic Trilogy. I didnt despise it, mind you. It was just one of those books where I read 1/3, got bored, then killed the rest for the sake of finishing it. Luke and Jacen's story was alright, but a little boring. But everything Bakura related.....WHO THE HELL CARES!!! For one, I thought its relations to the Vong war could have been summed up a LOT shorter than making an entire book out of it. The whole political story played out like a lame Tom Clancy type novel. Boooring. Im hoping the final book in the trilogy redeems it.
