Synopsis: This book takes off immediately after Book Two. This is the conclusion of the three book series and should be quite interesting.

Review: Centerpoint Station - A huge artifical world, built over thousands of years, by who, no one knows. This place was one of many secrets, until now. It's deadly secret has been discovered by Lando Calrissian as they tour the station in the events of this story.

Centerpoint Station IS the powerful star-destroying weapon known as the Starbuster. It is also the station that is generating the interdiction field, preventing anyone from entering or leaving the Corellian System. The station will destroy Bovo Yagen, several planets surrounding that star and millions of lives, if it is not stopped. They are running out of time!

And that isn't all - Thracken Sal-Solo has gotten his hands on more weapons. He now controls the planetary repulsors on Corellia and Drall. At the same time, he has captured Jaina and Jacen, and Anakin Solo and has them trapped, hidden away inside the repulsor on Drall. And he has Chewbacca, Ebrahim and Aunt Marcha as well. If Thrackens' plans are successful and Corellia breaks away from the New Republic, the defeat of the New Republic seems assured.

But don't count out Han Solo and his new buddies, the Selonians. Luke and Lando, their friends the Bakurans, and Tendra all play a part in the resolution of the crisis. And the force-sensitive Solo children may have a few tricks up their sleeves - remember, they are Han and Leia's kids.

I would have to say that this book is the best one of the Corellian Trilogy. I really enjoyed it! The magnitude of the events that happened in this book were huge with millions of lives on the line, so I was glued ot the book start to finish.
