Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Rebels have taken the Imperial headquarters world of Coruscant, but their problems are far from over. A killer virus called Krytos is spreading among the population, and fomenting a counter-revolution, at the same time as the treason trial of Rebel hero Tycho Celchu. And X-wing pilot Corran Horn, given up for dead in "Iceheart"'s inescapable prison, discovers an extraordinary power in himself--the power of the Force!Review:
This is the third book in the X-Wing series, and I'm starting to get so into this series. I think this was my favorite one so far, but I can't really tell you why without revealing some spoilers...
I thought all of the characters got even more interesting in this book. It's rare for me to be emotionally invested in so many characters in a book. To be fair, that's at least partly because not many books have so many characters, but still, I really love a good deal of the characters in this book. I just find them all very intriguing, and they all have their own interesting stories. I love it.
Luke appears in this book! I loved that. Plus, Corran finding out his grandfather was a Jedi was awesome. I totally saw it coming because of the medallion, but I still loved it. The fact that all of the monuments were defaced, but the museum was really cool. And of course it was awesome seeing Corran use a lightsaber. I'm really excited about this possibly playing a part later in the series.
I could go on and on about a ton of the characters, but it would all be rather pointless. One last thing: I'm so glad they finally discovered who the traitor was since I'd known for a while. (I should probably stop reading Wookieepedia.) Hopefully I'll get around to the fourth book soon!
