Finally this saga is over. This volume is a bit better of the previous, at least it doesn't pretend to describe the SW universe. Just two competing factions facing each other on a world were winning a battle is the most important thing.
A Republic less honest than usual and an Empire more human: at the end they seems pretty much the same.
An entertaining novel with a few moments of genuine cleverness peppered throughout. The real treat, though, was the pair of short stories featuring Darth Vader at the end.
