Whitman is still reaching to include as many cameo appearances from other media in this series. This time, Dash Rendar fromĀ Shadows of the Empire shows up on a luxury space yacht where Zak and Tash are taking a break from their adventures. Of course, this beingĀ Star Wars, nothing is ever as simple as taking a relaxing cruise through space, and when they’re the last passengers left on the ship after an “Abandon ship!” claxon, another adventure begins.

The series falters a bit here, as what’s happening seems pretty obvious from outside the story, but the main characters don’t get it. They continue to make poor choices, mostly to keep the story moving, when if they would stop and think about it for a moment, they would realize the truth and stop making stupid decisions. The whole series goes back and forth with this dilemma, with some stories being done well, and others done poorly. These were published pretty quickly, though, so maybe some kinks in the series should be expected.

The story is still easy and fun to read, but it’s hardly the best in the series. At this point, I might be hard-pressed to pick the best, but they’ve all been entertaining to some degree, and fun. Maybe I shouldn’t look any more deeply than that.
