Synopsis: A large group of survivors from Coruscant have fled to the Borleias system and set up a temporary base there. Any survivor who has made it alive so far is welcome to stay with them. They are gathering forces, making inventory, seeing relatives who where thought to have been lost. The survivors of the Yuuzan Vong attack at Coruscant now see how little there is still left from their New Republic and make plans on how to survive.

Review: The Mon Mothma has come to take Borleias back from the Yuuzan Vong. Wedge Antilles is in command of the Rebel fleet. Borleias was taken from them, but now is not too heavily guarded. And the Rebels want it back. They need a place to regroup and this is it. They have the Mon Mothma and Lusankya together with a large group of fighter squadrons consisting of mainly X-wings. They set off to recapture the ones which are theirs, and what will be theirs again.

Han and Leia are of with the Millennium Falcon, going from one planet to the next, to set up underground cells. They contact the local resistance groups and help them on their way. Leia even visits an old friend from her old Senate days. The resistance needs food, a place to stay and materials. Hiding alone wont help, they need to fight the Vong.

Luke has chosen a very dangerous mission. He, together with a group of intelligence members of the New Republic, are going back to Coruscant. Mara and Tahiri are going with him. Once on the planet their goals are to set up a communication system and a holo network to send information back to Borleias. The Vong may be destroying the buildings, but they have not reached the lower levels yet. It is well possible to find survivors there. And survivors can mean a resistance group right under the noses of the Vong.

The book tells us about the 49 days of the occupation of Borleias. The heroics of the survivors of the New Republic now rebels once again and the surviving plan of the New Republic's government, if there still is one. There is the forming of new leaders, growing love and new problems to be solved. A book full of action, luckily the story is put into two books. There is no moment that the story is getting slow or boring and there are plenty of space battles. The enemy is taking more and more planets away of them. A good book, in a great series.
