Over fifty years ago Grand Admiral Thrawn destroyed the Outbound Flight containing some Jedi. Now on the planet Nirauan, aliens have found the remains of the Outbound Flight. They want to hand over their find to the New Republic. Knowing the diplomatic value of accepting this “gift” and the internal appreciation of leaving no one behind, leaders of the New Republic send the Skywalkers to Niraua, graveyard to over fifty-thousand.

Master Jedi Luke Skywalker and Jedi Knight wife Mara Jade discuss technology on the journey as the duo still struggle to adjust to married life with missions seemingly always happening. However, others want to reach the colossal remains before the Skywalkers get there. Some are enemy survivors of the post-Palpatine Empire while others are New Republic “allies” with their own agenda. Though the simple trip turns dangerous as foes seek the annihilation of the Skywalkers and the destruction of their allies, the biggest mystery resides inside the massive hulk.

Aimed at teenage Star war fans, this stand alone thriller is a superb action and adventure tale that spins somewhat like an out in space epic sword and sorcery story. Luke and Mara is a delightful pair though many old-timers will need to adapt to the young Jedi master having a wife (can Jedi kiddies be far behind”). The twists and turns add excitement that will please readers of all ages as once again Master Writer Timothy Zahn insures the force is with his readers.
