An awesome book. Set some time after the Battle of Endor "Before the Storm" is a gripping story.
Certain arias felt a little like Star Trek, but that's just my opinion. This a great story, and actually follows several different plots at once.
I don't want to go into to much detail and spoil the story for all you soon-to-be readers; but I will say that, while being written from a third person narrative point of view, many of the perspectives are presented through Leia's perspective.
I can't wait to read the other books in this series, "Before the Storm" has set the stage for them quit well.
The cast (Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Ackbar, ech) were all portrayed flawlessly.
All in all this was an awesome book, and I highly recommend that anyone interested in Star Wars read it.
May the Force be with you.
