 Star Wars: Blogs | Jedivan's Viewpoint | Timothy Zahn's Outbound Flight Worth the Wait
Some fans might be a little put out that Timothy Zahn has Anakin and Obi-Wan playing second fiddle to Jorus C'baoth, Thrawn, C'baoth's Padwan: Lorana Jinzler, smuggler Jorj Car'das, and Palpatine's aide: Kinman Doriana.
(For a Timothy Zahn Clone Wars adventure showcasing Anakin and Obi-Wan see "Changing Seasons", which can be found at http://www.starwars.com/hyperspace/member/fiction/f20040720/index.html.)

Zahn's other Star Wars books certainly have an element of mystery to them, but in this book it is the principal genre.
Old-time Zahn fans, who have followed Luke and Mara from Heir to the Empire to Vision of the Future, probably won't have a problem coping with the new array of characters that Zahn invents; however, newcomers reading this book on its own might have a more difficult time.
Because it is a newer book Zahn does a good job tying the newly revealed events of the Clone Wars to later events, especially through talk of the Old Republic Jedi and Luke and Mara's humorous attempts to sneak past the old droideka.
