Lose it. There's only one Hand in the Empire, and I'm it. Without even appearing to aim, Grave shifted his blaster slightly and sent a shot sizzling past the living shield's ear to blow a hole in Cav'Saran's face. LaRone: We swore an oath to defend the people of the Empire. There are a lot of other dangers out there they need defending against.
Brightwater: Actually, I was kind of hoping you'd say that. For all the bumps and bruises, this hero stuff definitely helps you sleep better at night. Chivkyrie: That was a brave and honorable thing you did. We must hope it will not in turn bring destruction upon us. Leia: It might. But it was something I had to do. Obi-Wan: Focus on the keypad. Focus on the numbers. The first number is seven. Luke: I'm not—I can't see it. Obi-Wan: [sigh] The numbers are seven seven eight one three one two. Luke: You know, you could make this whole thing a whole lot easier.
Any additional comments? One tiny thing bothered me about the dialog Mr. Keep in mind that the book is set in a time between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back so Leia, not yet experiencing the defeat at Hoth and the pursuit of Darth Vader, hasn't begun to release her true feelings for Han on a personal level. She should still have the same vintage professional and studious approach towards Han that she had in dealing with Solo in A New Hope and not be addressing him as "Han" THAT many times in the novel. However, the scene where Leia gets jealous as Han speaks to a female rebel pilot at the beginning of the novel perfectly shows the vintage suppression of feelings and indifference in Han's attempts to frustrate her.
I love the Timothy Zahn books. They add some much depth and personality to the Empire's High Command political structure. Mara Jade and Vader are so cool in this book. A large portion of this book is also told from the perspective of 5 Stormtroopers. I like that the Stormtroopers are humanized in this story. Who was your favorite character and why? He and the "Hand of Judgment" was my favorite part of the story. If not him then Mara Jade, her arrogance is what pushes her to second because she hasn't earned her arrogance like, for instance, Vader Man if he were in the book as a core character he would be first cause Darth Vader!
Which scene was your favorite? It's a tie between two scenes. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Timothy Zahn always hits home runs with his Star Wars novels and he did it again. The only issue with this book is It's to short. I wanted more, i did read 'Choices of One' before i listened to this but i still wanted more. I also wanted more Vader but i completely understand him being a small cameo-esk character.
I believe this is Marc's first attempt at Vader but you couldn't tell as it's flawless. Marc is second only to Johnathan Davis when it comes to voice actors of Vader, he surpasses him in every other Voice especially Luke's. Great book, Great narrator, Great story, i'm amazed by this book. If you could sum up Allegiance: Star Wars in three words, what would they be? Bold, New, Characters. Would you be willing to try another book from Timothy Zahn? Why or why not? Tim Zahn is a great writer!

Bar Scene is by far the best scene! If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be? I loved it I have become comfortable with Mara Jade and the five new Stormtroopers that made this book so enjoyable I love the interaction and the way things are working together I hope to see more in this series between these two separate contingence the only Jade has been around for a while but the new Stormtrooper 18 which is the only way I can really describe them as a dynamic to the storyline that I find absolutely exhilarating I can't wait to read more about them I hope that they continue I'm enjoying it immensely.
Marc Thompson as always is stellar in his narration, and the middle third in particular made the book hard to put down.
Its no spoiler to say Mara Jade makes an appearance in this book as a third of it is from her perspective, but the "missed other plot characters by inches" trope felt a little over done in this book, particularly to anyone who has read further in to the extended universe. So good! Keeps your attention and on your toes.

Some of Timothy Zahn's best work. Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? It's set directly after the events of A New Hope. Some good characters and like the concept of a rebelling storm trooper unit but the story really doesn't go anywhere and just feels like its treading water. Had me intrigued until the end. Great story, characters, voices.
Felt like a film, with all the effects! Great production as always and Marc Thompson's narration and performance is as impressive as ever. Sadly plot has too many threads and characters to keep hold of and Zahn relies too much on pure chance of events to drive plot forward which just makes the whole thing even more confusing. Excellent storywise , good pacing. Marc Thompson is as always the best narrator in star wars. Probably the main story is about a band of Stormtroopers you know those evil guys in white armor we all loved to hate well they decide to jump ship after an bizarre and contrived incident onboard their Star Destroyer to become some kind of roaving band of semi do gooders.
Their characters are flat and lifeless through the entire book, they are not clones yet might as well be for the way they act. Mara Jade bounds about and instantly kicks everyone's butt she comes into contact with despite being little more than a kid. Zahn clearly loves his creation far better than any of the original Star Wars characters as she is pretty much unbeatable by anyone even Darth Vader yea right Luke, Han and Lea are all there but their characters are never developed or enhanced. The rest of the book is packed with 2 bit villans who come and go by the truck load.
This book Humanises the Stormtroopers far too much to the point where you start to feel for them and would like to sit down at a bar and have a beer or two, sorry but that's not the way I want to feel about Stormtroopers, they arn't supposed to be all Human and sympathetic, and heroic, they are the Empires evil crack troopes, something to be feared and hated.
