I had never read a Star Wars book by Aaron Allston before, so I was curious to read this. I ended up enjoying Outcast and think that this was a great setup for the series.
Luke and Ben get booted off of Coruscant and go on a journey throughout the galaxy in an attempt to figure out why Jacen went evil. Han and Leia have their on side mission on the planet Kessel helping Lando, and Jaina and friends try to find out why some of the other Jedi are acting crazy. Most of the parts in this book were fun to read, though I found the parts with Han and Leia on Kessel a little boring. The best thing about this book was that it had no bad words.
