The Young Jedi Knights save Lowbacca from the Diversity Alliance headquarters on Ryloth.
I love action and there's definitely a lot of it in this book. There is one rather humorous scene with the kids and a trio of Gamorrean Guards. The scenes where the kids are stranded on opposite sides of Ryloth (in blazing heat and freezing cold) was rather interesting.
After everything was all said and done, not a lot happened in this novel. About the only thing was that Lowbacca decided that the Diversity Alliance wasn't so hot after all. And the more I read about the Diversity Alliance, the more it doesn't seem to fit into the grand overall story being told. In one novel, all the aliens are bickering and fighting with each other. Wars between individual races threaten to tear the galaxy apart. Then, in the story, they all happen to unite to hate humans. Could they really get along long enough to become so organized? Granted, this is a small group of individual aliens, but it seems funny. Finally, when the kids are in trouble, where are the Noghri that swore to protect them?
Tenel Ka punching the nose in on the wolfman. Ouch! Dat's gotta hurt.
