I have been have staying away from the Council for reasons of spoilers of any sort for SbS. That being said however I have the highest expectations of this book. I have been looking forward to this book now, for maybe a year, year and a half. I actually read other Troy Denning books just to see what his writing style is like. Needless to sat I wasn's disappointed. If the book rings in at an astonishing 624 pages that will be even better. I can't wait to see how he deals with the Jedi, the YV, and Senate, and everything else SW.
