Thanks Amazon for trying to swindle me out of $2.99. Better luck next time.
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.
Is it a necessary read? Not really. I could have skipped it (I actually did) and not miss much. It felt like the extraneous part of a book that had been edited out, like in the DVD's, where it's billed as the extras. People pay to see those extras. I did. It was worth it, but probably not to everyone.
P.S.- The series is one of the best of all the Star Wars series.
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.Read more ›
