Scattering after the Yuuzhan Vong's invasion of Coruscant, the panic-stricken members of the New Republic Advisory Council pause just long enough to set up a mock defense on nearby Borelias-an attempt to buy time that fools no one, least of all the Jedi...

Set 30 years after Star Wars: IV - A New Hope, Rebel Dream sees Leia and Han Solo traveling from world to world in a bid to start a rebellion against the New Republic's disastrous appeasement policies.

But Luke Skywaker has chosen the most dangerous assignment of all: to sneak into the Yuuzhan Vong's stronghold on Coruscant. His outrageous scheme to gain entry is either brilliant or suicidal, depending on the outcome.

Bearing down swiftly on Boreleias is a Yuuzhan Vong invasion fleet, determined to destroy the galaxy's remaining defenders.

Aaron Allston's writing is strong and engaging and his acknowledgments list is intriguing. Who, for example is Dan Hamman or Debby Dragoo? They sound like they could be Jedi Knights.

This novel starts, as all New Jedi Order books do, with a map of the regions of the galaxy this effects, a novels timeline and a list of characters, just so you don't get in over your head.

Allston is a writer of enormous potential and I hope to see more of his work from the Arrow stable in the not too distant future. To top it all Dave Seeley has worked his magic and given us one hell of a great cover. Star Wars fans will not be disappointed.
