From the Inside Flap
Merciless attacks by an invincible alien force have left the New Republic reeling. Dozens of worlds have succumbed to occupation or annihilation, and even the Jedi Knights have tasted defeat. In these darkest of times, the noble Chewbacca is laid to rest, having died as heroically as he lived--and a grief-stricken Han Solo is left to fit the pieces of his shattered soul back together before he loses everything: friends, family, and faith.
Refusing help from Leia or Luke, Han becomes the loner he once was, seeking to escape the pain of his partner's death in adventure . . . and revenge. When he learns that an old friend from his smuggling days is operating as a mercenary for the enemy, he sets out to expose the traitor. But Han's investigation uncovers an even greater evil: a sinister conspiracy aimed at the very heart of the New Republic's will and ability to fight--the Jedi.
Now Han must face down his inner demons and, with the help of a new and unexpected ally, honor Chewbacca's sacrifice in the only way that matters--by being worthy of it.

This book deals with Han grieving over Chewie's loss and a rather throwaway plot dealing with a Vong who supposedly knows something about Mara's disease.
This book could be easily skipped.
Nom Anor returns, inexplicably from the dead. This time, he is but one of a group of leaders. For all their mastery of biological weapons, they are finding the New Republic to be a formidable foe.
Han is also back. When off on a secret mission with a friend, Han unexpectedly gets caught up in the middle of the action. This book is really a story of how he pulls himself out of the rut he was swimming in after the death of his beloved friend. Along the way, he finds himself an interesting sidekick, Droma, who does a wonderful job of taking over Han's role of providing comic relief. From time to time, we see the creation of a character with such lasting potential. I do hope to see Droma in many more books.
Although "Hero's Trial" is the first part of a duology, there is a conclusion of sorts. It's nice not to be left hanging off a cliff. For all the doom and gloom of the New Jedi Order, we find an ending that is uplifting. There is hope.
On a different note. This is my second time reading this series and its every bit as good as I remember. Wish Disney hadn't thrown this content out.
