Hugo-winning author Timothy Zahn has already established himself a major luminary in the Star Wars universe with his Thrawn novels and iOutbound Flight/i. The attributes that earned him that reputation are easy to describe: Vivid characterization; strong plot momentum; memorable stories. All of those elements pop before our eyes in iStar Wars Allegiance,/i a novel set immediately after the events of iStar Wars: A New Order/i. This fiction features some of iStar Wars/i' most popular characters (Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Hans Solo) and a fresh new face: Mara Jade, the Force-sensitive young woman destined to become the wife of Luke Skywalker. A major new constellation.
