I recently read this book and was not terribly impressed. The best part without question was the connection to the PT, but it was overshadowed by tedious repetition. Oh look, Han is *still* wandering the desert. Oh look, *another* TIE fighter. And it's not like there's any drama or sense of danger because we know everyone's all right by the Thrawn Trilogy. Also, the Squibs were so annoying! The saving grace of the book was the PT content, that was very well done and fascinating - except perhaps for Kitster's justification in stealing the painting. That was way too far-fetched to be believable.
