This book is actually the prologue of Star by Star, 2 books further into the series. There is no reason to buy this book when you can read this whopping 82 pages as the prologue in another book. This is not advertised anywhere in the review or information pages of this book. DO NOT BUY THIS KINDLE BOOK. Instead buy Star by Star and read it there, and get the entire Star by Star book as well. For the same price. Luckily this book beamed to my kindle before they realized my credit card had expired and I wasn't charged. Neener Neener! I'd say I won but since I already owned the Star by Star book I feel like I just broke even.

Thanks Amazon for trying to swindle me out of $2.99. Better luck next time.

This is a pretty decent short story. Some of the new characters, such as the salt-addicted Arcona jedi, are pretty compelling. However, the story is included in Star by Star (Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, Book 9), which is a key book in the series, so there's really no reason to buy Recovery separately.

Another well written eBook by Troy Denning, but why is it put where it is? Why not a part of Balance Point? It is well written and belongs in the new Jedi Order. I just don't think it should stand alone. It is fun and fast to read on my Kindle, but not even in paperback????

Troy Denning's novella Recovery was originally published in e-book form and is a short tale set after the events of Kathy Tyers' Balance Point. Han and Leia Solo's relationship was fractured early in the Yuuzhan Vong invasion by the death of someone in the family, and the books prior to Recovery, notably the Agents of Chaos duology, spent time exploring Han's journey to reclaim himself from his demons and Leia's efforts to be patient with the process. Ms. Tyers reunited the couple in Balance Point as the battle for Duros commenced, but it is in this short story that they truly begin the emotional healing process.

We start on Corellia with a battle in a hospital and an appearance from Han's rogue cousin Thracken Sal-Solo. It's good to touch base on what Sal-Solo has been up to since he fired the Centerpoint weapon earlier in the New Jedi Order. Mr. Denning uses this story to introduce a group of his preferred characters, a tight-knit group of saurian Barabel Jedi. Here they are accompanied by an entertainingly non-conventional, salt-addicted Arcona Jedi as well as a human Jedi, Master Eelysa, known for her lengthy and complicated solo missions. The Barabel come into full play in Mr. Denning's own Star by Star and are memorable characters: it's welcome, if certainly not essential, to have their background more fully fleshed out here.

In fact, the Jedi provide the most entertaining aspect of Recovery. The Solo reactions to the explicitly non-human worldview of the Barabel are genuinely funny, especially as they struggle to comprehend Barabel humor. Mr. Denning handles the evolution of their relationship and concurrent healing capably enough, although no aspect of this jumps out at me as especially memorable.

Recovery is a novella by Troy Denning that was first published as an e-book. It takes place after the events of Kathy Tyers’ Balance Point, and the title refers primarily to the recovery of the Solo marriage. Han has been estranged from his family since Chewie’s death, and the healing process for the Solo family only really began to happen in Balance Point. Mr. Denning’s novella continues the recovery process, especially the emotional part.

The story begins in a hospital on Corellia, and we get to hear from Han’s cousin Thracken Sal-Solo. Thracken was the one responsible for the firing of Centerpoint Station a couple of books ago, an effort that ended with mixed results at best. Several other Jedi are introduced as the story moves along.

At the end of the story our heroes are making a mad dash back to Coruscant to halt or at least influence an important Senate vote. This is not surprising. Throughout the New Jedi Order series so far the Senate and the New Republic leadership are constantly causing problems and making extremely questionable decisions.

Mr. Denning has more Star Wars books coming down the road, so Recovery is well worth reading. It can give you an idea of his style and possibly a little better understanding of some of his Jedi characters.

I liked the story. It filled in the missing information after Leia was beaten by Tsavong Lah's amphistaf. Recovery told the nature of Leia's wounds, her initial recovery in Corellia, and brought Han into the story as he guarded her in the Bacta Ward. Naturally, there was trouble as Thracken Sal-Solo was also brougt back when his thugs, who didn't know Han was there when they tried to kidnap Leia, failed. Two new Jedi were brought into the story when the fire-fight started in the Bacta Ward, Izal Waz and Eelysia (who was also in bacta). The story broadened as the Solo's fled Corellia with Waz, 3 Barabell Jedi, and Eelysia, the Master of Saba Sebatyne. Eelysia had also been severely wounded by amphistaf. Eventually, Han and Leia go to Coruscant to stop Viqi Shesh from outlawing Jedi and/or turning them over to the Vong as a "peace offering." Their arrival sets off another set of typical Solo luck, when thugs from Shesh's office try to kill them before they can get to the meeting. They, too fail and as the meeting gets underway, Leia is escorted by her 3 children, brother and most of the Jedi on the planet. Viqi's effort fails and her minion at the meeting is found dead. Leia recovers and walks again.
