Nuestros queridos personajes irán de acá para allá buscando información, hablando con posibles aliados y hasta con enemigos con tal de conseguir la victoria para los buenos. In reality, this does happen, and it's all the more satisfying when it does happen, since it happens so infrequently. Though you may find yourself, as I did, skimming over more than a few redundant character conversations or internal debates.

Meanwhile certain individuals, you know who, will initiate plans of their own to help against this threat. Thrawn gets a few cool moments of deduction here that I really liked, but he also knows when to admit that he has been defeated in a given battle. Princess Leia was the most improved of the characters and she had the most interesting story arc in this installment.The first and biggest problem with the Thrawn Trilogy is the portrayal of the central characters from the original Star Wars films. I have to be honest, coming off Heir to the Empire I was a little too excited to get through this second novel when in actual fact I was in it for the long run. His opening scene also felt way to similar to the Hoth attack from empire strikes back so that didn't help with the immersion.

Looking forward to the final part of the Trilogy, though as already mentioned that’ll be a couple of months away as the new High Republic book is the new top priority in my established sci-fi franchise book reading! But now that I have been introduced to Thrawn and know how awesome he is, so the novelty of this has worn off.However, Dark Force Rising takes whatever potential the series may have had and murders it brutally with a lightsaber to the groin. The plot revolves around everyone in the novel trying to find a bunch of lost spaceships that are such an amazing prize because . These additions feel seamlessly integrated into the established lore, enriching the galaxy's tapestry. Pues en esta segunda entrega de la famosa Trilogía de la Nueva Republica nos encontramos con nuestro trio protagónico de la Trilogía Original (junto con Chewie y Lando que nunca falten) enfrentándose a las maquinaciones de Thrawn que llegan hasta la cúspide de la Nueva República en forma de agitación política.

Zahn is best known for his Star Wars novels ( Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, The Last Command, Specter of the Past, Vision for the Future, Survivor's Quest, Outbound Flight, Allegiance, Choices of One, and Scoundrels), with more than four million copies of his books in print. Yet most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness… and scheming to corrupt Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side. The drab, the bland, the dull writing, the boring plotting is too much to really need outlining to a great degree.Particularly when characters are conversing with one another, there seems to be only a few different types of responses (which often sound awkward and hard to envision) that characters are able to give one another, such as: "grunted", "retorted", "countered", and "conceded".

Again, it's another case of it's not that Thrawn is any worse here, it's just because it's the same Thrawn we got in Heir and I wanted Zahn to up the ante. Speaking of which, Joruus Cbaoth becomes more interesting as we spend more time with him and his plan is further revealed. Han and Lando go to attempt to sniff out the source; Luke discovers that a Jedi named C'baoth may have escaped the Jedi Purge, and Leia goes to meet the Noghri and work on some sort of resolution. Timothy Zahn's expert storytelling, combined with intricate character development and strategic battles, makes this book a standout in the series. Don't get me wrong, the character is still really interesting and he still manages to get some great dialogue, but he's not as threatening in this book.No solo hay objetos o definiciones que en Star Wars son clásicas como “Blaster” que aquí lo traducen como Desintegrador, si no que cosas más penales como traducir “Speeder” como Bicicleta… BICICLETA.
