The villain is nothing compelling, and his force choke scene is a poor copy of Darth Vader. The blob monster and destruction of a solar system is evocative of the Jedi academy trilogy's worst excesses.
This is the worst characterization of Luke I have seen; it is as if the author is oblivious of Luke's character development in the aforementioned jedi academy trilogy: he's a weak and listless figure here.
The novel is lengthy, predominately due to a ponderous children's story that should be it's own children's book rather than taking up space here.
Finally, once again here we have the theme of someone trying to resurrect the empire. It's an unfortunate plot device that needs to go away for the story to develop.
The only lasting significance of this story is the introduction of one new jedi who could plausibly become a permanent character in the stories to come.
The biggest thing that irritated me -and actually caused me to put the book down after only getting a quarter of the way through it -was Leia's character. She is NOTHING like Leia. Reading this book is like reading about someone who happens to share a name with our favorite Princess.
