Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in the galaxy, millions suddenly perish in a blinding instant of pain, anguish, and despair - a disruption of the Force so shocking, it is felt by Luke at his Jedi academy on Yavin 4 and by Leia at home on Coruscant. It is a deed that rivals the terrifying power of the Death Star, the long-destroyed weapon of the defeated Empire.
Then death comes to Coruscant itself. As Leia, head of the New Republic, prepares to address the Senate, a massive explosion decimates the Senate's ranks. Leia survives and recovers, only to be faced with calls to resign from office. Even worse, some of the Senators lay the blame for the attack on Han Solo.
As Leia works desperately to clear Han's name, Han and Chewbacca journey to the lawless asteroids of Smuggler's Run to track down rumors of a secret plot against the New Republic. And Luke goes in search of Brakiss, a former Jedi student who has turned his considerable talents to the dark side and might well have been involved in the unexplainable deaths that so disturbed Luke and Leia.
But Brakiss is only a small part of the carnage taking place on Coruscant and elsewhere. Luke is being stalked by a master of the dark side who is determined to rule as the next emperor. Luke, Leia, and Leia's Jedi children are targeted for death. Then billions will follow, in a holocaust unequaled in galactic history.

good value for the cost

this was a thick paperback and I had read this new rebellion many times in the past as it's story had me gripped but although it was well read and great sound effects I was not gripped by it and sadly it seemed like it was over very quickly

the new rebelion

this is a very short book even by normal starwars audio books,it never really takes off,the start is slow and the ending is dissapointing and predictable,but that said its a starwars book and as such a must read.The book starts off with a explosion that is felt through the force by luke and leia,this sets off a chain of events,including han and calrissian setting off for smugglers run ,evntually leading to the meeting of lukes former trainee and a dull fight at the end.Not one to buy at full price nor would i waste a token on this book,wait till theres a sale or be dissapointed.
