  Star Wars: Expanded Universe | Star by Star Reviews
Bringing the Jedi to the front of the battle with the Yuuzhan Vong was an excellent move.

 What are stars made of?
Our nearest star, the Sun, is so hot that the huge amount of hydrogen is undergoing a constant star-wide nuclear reaction, like in a hydrogen bomb.
Even though it is constantly exploding in a nuclear reaction, the Sun and other stars are so large and have so much matter in them that it will take billions of years for the explosion to use all the "fuel" in the star.
The huge reactions taking place in stars are constantly releasing energy (called electromagnetic radiation) into the universe, which is why we can see them and find them on radio telescopes such as the ones in the Deep Space Network (DSN).

Star by Star was the least pleasant experience I've had in my Star Wars fandom.
This was the longest it took me to read a Star Wars book because it was 600+ pages and I'd get so depressed that I could only read about 20 pages a day at some points.
I've read plenty of other Star Wars stuff that I didn't particularly like, but this was the first time that I would have actually stopped reading a Star Wars book if I didn't have complete OCD.

 TheForce.Net - Books - Reviews | New Jedi Order - Star by Star
Troy Denning is one of the elder statesmen of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, having helped create material for the WEG RPG in the early nineties, even before Timothy Zahn's "Heir to the Empire" was released.
It is a pity that it has taken more than a decade for Troy to be given the chance to write a full length novel, because his new book, "Star by Star", the third hardcover in the NJO saga, is nothing short of brilliant.
The only other lengthy Star Wars book that I can recall is Zahn's "Vision of the Future." As always, I stick to the old rule, quality not content, however, I do enjoy reading long drawn out epics, and I do believe that "Star by Star" espouses quality.

Star by Star, by Troy Denning, begins the second half of the "New Jedi Order" series of Star Wars books, and is it a doozy.
Anyway, Star by Star begins with Mara Jade Skywalker and Jaina Solo out to rescue two escaping Jedi from a planet overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong.
He has a handle on these characters that is simply wonderful, whether it's Mara's love and protectiveness of her new son, Luke's trying to juggle his love for their son and his responsibilities to all of the Jedi who are being hunted down, or the still healing relationship between Han and Leia.

On the systems where it displayed correctly, the font for the star was Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro, a Japanese sans serif.
Using the Character Palette, if you insert a fl star in TextEdit while using a font that doesn’t contain the glyph, you’ll get the star from Mshtakan (if Mshtakan is available).
The star varies slightly in size depending on the font (it’s a little smaller in Zapf Dingbats, for example), but only in Mshtakan is it significantly smaller, and only in Mshtakan is it a differently-shaped star.

Star By Star said another way is "Star Crossed" and everyone knows that Star-Crossed is a euphemism for fated tragedy.
It is my theory that the title doesn't refer to the Vong taking the Galaxy one star at a time, or two stars next to each other, but rather certain fated tragedy.
I dont think we want to use Star squared, would look ridiculous like Alien3 or something whacked like that...It means the Yuuzhan Vong are conquering one system at a time.

The Vong have unleashed a strange creature upon them, capable of hunting the Jedi through the Force, and certainly capable of killing lone Jedi-and the fear is that they will be released in a widespread manner.

Star By Star is a big book, with a price tag to match; but I think it was definitely worth the money.
