Skywalker and his wife, Mara, receive a strange message from
a surprising source: Nirauan, the planet where Thrawn, dangerous
disciple of Emperor Palpatine, once held sway. The message
instructs them to go to collect the remains of the mysterious
Outbound Flight Project - a pioneering Jedi expedition, destroyed
by Grand Admiral Thrawn 50 years earlier. But there is more
than meets the eye with this unexpected gift. Onboard one
of the remnant ships, someone is still alive, and they are
not interested in visitors...
Skywalker's marriage is still in its infancy (although some
would argue that three years is a lifetime) and the two are
still getting to grips with their coupling. In fact, finding
quality time together is something which doesn't come easily
- due to the numerous demands of duty. So surely a long, quiet
trip together would be welcomed.
this trip looks like it will be anything but quiet. Venturing
into the treacherous cluster of stars where thousands aboard
the doomed Outbound Flight vessel met their end is sure to
rake up ghosts of the past.
Quest sees the Skywalker's discover that there is at least
one impostor accompanying them on their journey, and it is
not long before suspicion terror and covert behaviour take
hold of the isolated ship.
Zahn weaves a chilling, nail biting edition to the Star
Wars stable. Those disenchanted with The Phantom Menace
and Attack of the Clones should pick up a copy of Survivor's
also loved Steven D. Anderson's cover - he's really captured
the beauty of Mara.
beauty of this book is that it not just another Star Wars
novel - change the character's names and situations and this
could be a mass market suspense novel. Zahn's obvious knowledge
of horror movies is also another benefit - claustrophobic
settings are always a winner.
