From the Inside Flap
The hunt for Warlord Zsinj intensifies as Alliance officials realize he's a growing danger and threat to the Imperials. The hunt for his ship the Iron Fist is underway as Rogue Squadron and Wraith Squadron unite under Wedge's command for the first time. In scenes reminiscent of the hunt for the Nazi battleship Bismark, Alliance forces will eventually make an all-out assault on the Super Star Destroyer.
Die Gespensterstaffel gegen die Schergen der "Eisenfaust"! Ein Leckerbissen fur alle Star-Wars-Fans!
Kriegsherr Zsinj, Herr des Super-Sternenzerstorers "Eisenfaust," wird plotzlich zur groten Bedrohung der Neuen Republik. Wedge Antilles, der Kommandeur der Gespensterstaffel, schmiedet einen kuhnen Plan, den allerdings nur ein Mann durchfuhren kann, der ebenso gerissen ist wie Zsinj selbst: Han Solo, die lebende Legende aus dem Krieg gegen das Imperium. Doch als die morderische Schlacht beginnt, tauchen die Feinde aus vollig unerwarteter Richtung auf.

The focus at this point in the series is Jacen’s movement towards the Sith. It’s going to happen. We all know it, but it is taking forever. It also is very difficult to understand, but it’s there. The Solo family has really fallen on hard times, and it’s kind of sad. They are about to lose a second child, and they are mistrusted by both sides in the war between the Corellians and the Confederation.
Lumiya is still around causing trouble without showing herself. Alema Rar is still determined to savage the Skywalker and Solo families. Jagged Fel and Jaina Solo are also along. However, the most interesting feature of the plot is where Ben Skywalker will end up. He is using Jacen as his role model and that does not sit well with his parents. Ben is sent off on a personal mission by Jacen to find an ancient amulet on the legendary world of Ziost.
Time to move on to the next book, Sacrifice. Then we will be halfway through Legacy of the Force.
The most interesting parts for me were Ben's trials on the ancient Sith world of Ziost. Really it's a place of mythology for most star wars fans, and the location doesn't pop up much, especially considering it's the homeworld of the rival, dark force path that continually threatens the galaxy throughout the series. Seeing Ben travel there and just getting a feel for the atmosphere of the place and its hints of malevolence was interesting. Allston does a good job making Ben an ambivalent character, I found myself rooting for the kid to make the right moral assumptions, cringing when he fell short and egging him on when he made the right choice. This is the son of LUKE for God's sake, and to see him struggle so much just humanizes him in a way that Luke can't be -- he's too perfect.
I'm not really looking forward to the next book. It's Traviss again, and she gets to narrate the climax of the story. Ugh...
There are characters involved who don't need to be a part of this series, so far as I can see. Maybe it becomes important later. Alema, for one. She is a comic representation of evil. Still trying to kill Han for why? The Balance -- the whole reason behind her evilness. I think I somehow lost how this was all part of Sith lore, but I thought the Balance was something Gaeriel believed in, and it had nothing to do with the Dark side. Where did Alema ever learn it? Revenge is one thing, but Balance?
There are plot points that make no sense. Jacen sneaks into a convention under disguise. No one recognizes him. Okay. Suddenly he speaks up, and the whole place knows who he is . . . still in disguise. Hmmm.
"Exile" wasn't a complete loss. The story moves the series along. It could have been great. It was just okay. 3½ stars.
