Spector of the Past
A critique written by Lavi Lightbearer
The author that recreated the galaxy far, far away is back with all his talents and the spirit that created the astonishing blockbuster novel Heir to the Empire.
Timothy Zahn has captured the imaginations of millions with Heir to the Empire, the first succession of the epic Star Wars Trilogy. Zahn held the wonder and excitement of the fans in the following novels concluding the masterpiece trilogy. Now, in an all new novel, Timothy Zahn continues the classic Star Wars saga with Specter of the Past
Fifteen years after Return of the Jedi, Specter of the Past continues the paramount original series. Zahn brings together the heroes of the Rebellion: Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo; and combines them with two women from that crowded cantina scene which took place so long, long ago; in a way which only Zahn's talent can bring together in a novel of this intensity.
Perfectly expressed scenes and detail suffuse the novel. The action is unfaltering, always on an increase. There is never a dull moment. The author that recreated the galaxy far, far away is back with all his talent and the spirit that recreated the astonishing blockbuster novel Heir to the Empire.
