Synopsis: Now that the Jedi Knights have defeated the Shadow Academy at Yavin 4, the healing and reconstruction begin. Also, new threats will continue to present themselves in the next couple volumes, so stick around.

Review: It starts out with the reconstruction of the Jedi Academy Temple. Workers are busy. Later on, problems start to present themselves. Bornan Thul, father of Raynar Thul, is missing. He did not attend a confrence meeting on Shumavar, which tipped them off that he was missing. Later, Jacen, Jaina, Lowbacca, Tenel Ka, and Em Teedee visit Alderann's graveyard-where it used to be-alone. They will find a piece of Alderann and take it to Leia as a birthday gift.

Meanwhile, Zekk leaves the Jedi Academy, intent on going back to his homeworld, Ennth. He leaves with a bleeding concience after being responsible for a hundred deaths at Yavin 4 during the fight against the Jedi Academy. With the Jedi Knights at Alderann, in the midst of ghosts, they recieve a very fatal surprise-some of them still live, and are lethal, cocked, and loaded...

Bravo! Having new threats make things a lot more interesting. I like the way Kevin and Rebecca took it. So I thought it was good! Well written, well thought, and it maintains a good climax!
