Jacen and Jaina's friend has risen to the top of the ranks at the Shadow Academy. His final test is to conduct an attack on a parts factory on the Wookiee planet Kashyykk (sp?). Guess who happens to be there when it happens? Yep, the twins and the rest of the gang on vacation at Lowie's home. Oh yeah, the friend is supposed to kill the kids, too. Will he do it or can he turn back to the light side?
It was really cool to learn more about the Wookiee home world. The depths of the forest world were a really exciting location. This novel was really packed with action, too, which was very good. The speeder bike chase was one of my favorite parts.
It is debatable whether or not this story needed to be told in an entire book. It had a feel that it was being dragged out. That is the main reason I gave it 3 Death Stars.
