I just finished the book about an hour ago, on the bus ride home from university. Wow. Luke was great, Mara was fantastic, and Jacen was... wow. Jacen is my favorite of the Solo kids, and I love his part in the book. I'd been sort of hoping he would turn to the Dark side, but what he did... I'm happy =) =) =) And even Anakin, who I normally find extremely annoying, was fun to read. Of course, now that Jacen seems to have chosen Light, I'm hopping Anakin slips over, but that?s just me. And I never would have thought I'd feel sympathy for a Hutt. Poor Randa By the last quarter of the book, I was hoping he might be a reoccurring character. ~sniff, sniff~ The baby? I can?t thank you enough for that. Thank you! Anyways, really, really, really fantastic job. Thank you so much for writing this book.
