About this deal

This also leads them to Corellian General Garm Bel Iblis, whom they try to bring over to the New Republic. Looking forward to the final part of the Trilogy, though as already mentioned that’ll be a couple of months away as the new High Republic book is the new top priority in my established sci-fi franchise book reading!

Lo de Han y Lando también es interesante, además de ser con ellos con los que aprendemos sobre La Fuerza Oscura, una flota de 200 cruceros acorazados manejables con muy poco personal y que decantaría el lado de cualquiera que lo tuviera.Directly ahead, the star was a marble-sized yellow-orange ball, its intensity moderated by its distance and by the viewports’ automatic sunscreens.

More on the book, I liked the secondary characters more than the main ones ( excluding luke) as they just had more interesting arcs than the others. Again, Zahn had the entire universe to fill with cool characters and he creates someone who wants to kill Luke Skywalker because he made her lose her job via killing the Emperor. As they are fleeing, Karrde and Mara Jade stumble across the long lost Katana Fleet, also known as the Dark Force. 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. To be able to do that, Grand Admiral Thrawn is putting into motion his plan involving old but quite powerful Dreadnaughts who can make a more than fair match of Imperial Destroyers and New Republic Heavy Cruisers.Characters grapple with ethical dilemmas and the weight of their loyalties, adding depth to their arcs. 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. Their personal journeys and challenges contribute to the narrative's depth, adding emotional weight to their actions. This might be because the end of this relationship is something I already know the outcome of and therefore I’m projecting that knowledge onto what I’m reading, but it’s fun all the same.

I also love how this book tackled Luke's concerns about training and teaching hours sister's children once they were born and how he was already on to the Dark Jedi as well. I think she has even better books later on, but this book was excellent for her character development).That being said he knows banking on the Empire would be a bad move so he goes to sell the information to the New Republic but he is later captured by Thrawn and placed on his ship, the Chimaera.

Zahn is best known for his Star Wars novels ( Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, The Last Command, Specter of the Past, Vision for the Future, Survivor's Quest, Outbound Flight, Allegiance, Choices of One, and Scoundrels), with more than four million copies of his books in print.

However, there are several aspects of these books that just irked me the entire way through, and ultimately prevent the series from getting any more than a "read it if you've got nothing else better to read" recommendation from me. Jedi Master Joruus C'baoth is intriguing as a concept, but is mostly left on the sidelines of the story from the beginning of the first book until very late in the third book, and is given little to do in between. No solo hay objetos o definiciones que en Star Wars son clásicas como “Blaster” que aquí lo traducen como Desintegrador, si no que cosas más penales como traducir “Speeder” como Bicicleta… BICICLETA.
