This book was not my favorite in the series, but I did like it. One of the good things about it was that it showed more of Han and Leia as parents, which is very interesting, and it gives the reader a better perspective on what kind of background Jacen and Jaina came from. I also thought it was very sweet how Jacen and Jaina invited their friends home with them for their vacation, though I personally would rather have gone home to my own family. :-) Also I liked how Anakin was in this book more than he usually is, since he has always been my favorite of Han and Leia's three children, with Jaina as a close second, since she is a very strong female, reminiscent of both Han and Leia. Zekk has never been one of my favorite characters, especially in this book, mostly because he didn't really seem neccesary, at least at first, just there so Jaina would have someone to like. But, with the excellent writing of this book, I found myself truly feeling for him at certain parts, especially after the banquet, even though he is not the sort of character who usually appeals to me. So, to sum it up this was a really great book, just not my personal favorite.
