Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Barbara Hambly returns to the Star Wars(r) universe to tell a breathtaking tale of a mysterious world where the battle between the New Republic and the Empire takes a shocking new twist....

Nam Chorios is a barren backwater world--once a dreaded prison colony, now home to a fanatic religious cult. It is here that Princess Leia has been taken captive by a ruthless and charismatic warlord bent on destroying the New Republic. Meanwhile, Luke lands on a mysterious planet in search of his lost love, Callista, only to discover the Force is his own worst enemy. But worst of all, as Han, Chewie, and Lando leave Coruscant on a desperate rescue mission, a strange life-form, unlike any the galaxy has ever seen, awakens...a life-form so malevolent it will destroy everything--both Empire and New Republic--on its path to domination.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

I've read 18 Star Wars novels so far and the ONLY ones I didn't like were written by this author. She makes Luke seem weak as hell in both novels. Like he's not a Jedi Master! I'm glad she only wrote these two. Compared to all the other Star Wars novels hers are a very painful read.

Love Star Wars, love the EU

But this and the rest of the Callista trilogy really are just a chore. Long winded, disconnected from the rest of the EU, and paints a really wired picture of the Galaxy Far, Far Away.

Skip it

This is the first book in the expanded universe that I couldn't make myself finish.
