About this deal

Particularly when characters are conversing with one another, there seems to be only a few different types of responses (which often sound awkward and hard to envision) that characters are able to give one another, such as: "grunted", "retorted", "countered", and "conceded".

It was better paced than the still very good Heir to the Empire and once we got past some of the slower earlier chapters the book kept leaping forward until we reached a very fun big space war climax. Timothy Zahn's expert storytelling, combined with intricate character development and strategic battles, makes this book a standout in the series. Slowly, feeling almost furtive about it, Pellaeon turned his head a couple of centimeters to the side. La parte de Leia es la que más me ha gustado, ver su punto de vista como embajadora y política, además de su parcial entrenamiento como Jedi. The dying Empire's most cunning and ruthless warlord—Grand Admiral Thrawn—has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic's destruction.It shows that the true power lies in the background, that the light dark contrast of good and evil is the all controlling entity, that the stereotypical action heroes are just puppets of the true masters in the background, kind of politicians and media in the real world, and that the good ones can never reach the coolness and badassery of evil. Si, el libro está bien escrito, los personajes nuevos molan, y dentro de lo que cabe intenta mostrar un poco más de grises entre los rebeldes y no poner a todos los Imperiales de malosos (Pellaeon un grande), pero se nota que es hija de su tiempo y que esto es solo el principio y que sigue demasiado la estela de las primeras pelis que eran mas aventuras todo el rato de Han, Leia y Luke. To make matters worse Luke finds out that the Stormtroopers they fought were Clones, meaning Thrawn also now had the army to pilot the near-200 frigates.

After a long battle one Star Destroyer is taken down and Thrawn leaves, but not before revealing that he’d already taken most of the 200 Dreadnaughts before they even got there.

While thankfully the books are all but saved by the presence of interesting newcomers Talon Karde and Mara Jade (despite their being fairly transparent Mary-Sues), virtually every single other new character is flat and boring.Regardless, I'm confident it's going to build up to something spectacular, and I can't wait to find out how this trilogy resolves. The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults.

The series continue to benefit from all the groundwork set in the movie version and makes for an easy summer read. Due to the events that led to the Battle of Sluis Van, lead smuggler Talon Karrde has left his base on Myrkr and is now fleeing from Grand Admiral Thrawn's Imperial forces. While getting more interesting by the end and very entertaining when paired with luke skywalker, the scenes with her and Karrde were snorefests.Dark Force Rising," the second installment of the Thrawn Trilogy by Timothy Zahn, propels readers deeper into a galaxy far, far away, where the legacy of the Empire continues to cast its shadow.
