Lando and co moved from the airlock into a passageway; realize that they’re in the weapon’s superconduit network; they move into a habitable part of the ship that seems like a museum; they’re attacked by an Imperial patrol frigate in the Deep Core; the Teljkon Vagabond destroys the Imperial ship While the Black Fleet Crisis events affect the NR Intelligence ships assigned to the expedition they’re recalled to the Koornacht Cluster except for Colonel Pakkpekatt Lando and Lobot remain outside of the loop on current events I like both the rapport and the conflict between Lando’s team though Lando’s rather outnumbered here Artoo and Threepio are governed entirely by logic and even Lobot skews to the mechanical logic side thanks to his cybernetic implants Lando’s also the leader which means he’s partially to blame when things go wrong But they still work well together and these have been rare books in that Lando’s intuition and intelligence are really allowed to shine Lobot too is developing into an interesting character I think this would have made a great standalone adventure story in the vein of the The Adventures of Lando Calrissian or the newer Star Wars Lando comic especially since this is so divorced from the main plot LUKE Some progress on the Luke front at least he looked into Akanah’s background But similarly to Lando’s subplot there’s not a lot of progress here Luke and Akanah head to Teyr and Atzerri only for Akanah to finally reveal that they're bound for J’t’p’tan Which is suspiciously close to the Koornacht Cluster so presumably Luke will become involved in that plotline in book 3What frustrates me though is how much is left unexplained to the reader Akanah is very reluctant to tell Luke where they’re going says she’ll teach him about the White Current but then constantly puts him off and outright lies about the purpose behind their trip to Atzerri Luke doesn’t really push back against this The Fallanassi are intriguing to me but we get so little insight into their history and practices that I’m starting to lose interestLuke’s voice sounds off in these chapters There’s not one particular thing I can pinpoint that McDowell misses just that his attitude and snappy comebacks felt closer to Han than to the Luke we know and love There was also a strange interlude on Atzerri where Luke passed the time by buying “secret Jedi texts” from a trader and then hung out in a club that recreates Jabba’s PalaceWe also see a return to Luke’s Force illusion skill There are some rules this time he can only do it while he’s conscious so he can’t sleep and sustain it I guess I’m not sure why an illusion is worth all the effort when he can’t change his voice as well Wouldn’t that be a giveaway? Plus the Legends material have other Force abilities that I like better like Force stealth or Force cloakThings I did like Akanah uestioned why Luke decided that the men on Lucazec were Imperials when it’s far likely that they were NR Intelligence thank you Luke knows exactly how many people died on the first Death Star feels responsible for their deaths but also feels that it was still necessary You need both clearance to lift to orbit and to pass through Coruscant’s planetary shield further reinforcing why parts of Shadows of the Empire confused me LEIA I found Leia vastly improved from book 1 Her crisis of conscience is over and she’s no longer letting people walk all over her I particularly enjoyed the scene where she sat down with a witness and approved all the worlds from the Farlax Sector that had petitioned for NR membership And when the young man from Polneye is rejected from the New Republic Navy because his planet isn’t affiliated with them Leia turns around and approves his petition as wellMcDowell also has some really fascinating worldbuilding about the NR bureaucracy which doesn’t get utilized much by later writers We have a Speaker rather like the US Speaker of the House; we have different Councils and Committees and Cabinets; we even have senators uestioning the legitimacy of Leia’s appointment because the Alderaanian remnant is only 60000 people without a planet We also see how slooow the New Republic has become At the start of Leia’s section it’s been 16 days since the Yevethan Purge but the NR still isn’t any closer to deciding how they’ll proceed In moving from the Provisional Council to the New Republic Senate powers and duties have been shifted around so that they can’t respond instantaneously like they could in the days of the Rebellion With legitimacy comes checks and balancesIf Leia is figuratively kicking butt and taking names Han is remarkably inactive here He’s almost fulfilling the girlfriend role here babysitting talking Leia into a vacation weekend and finally ordered by Leia to take command again of the Fifth Fleet Except he never makes it there but is instead captured by the Duskhan League Going into book 3 Han seems remarkably like a damsel in distressOVERALL ISSUESI really wish that McDowell had chosen to structure the novel differently With Lando Luke and Leia’s plotlines separated into their own distinct section it’s difficult to see how everything relates and how the timeline functions Lando hasn’t been on the Vagabond very long and is facing the threat of his supplies air water running out Meanwhile it takes Luke and Akanah days to clear each planet’s Flight Control Zone so their journey seems considerably leisurely And the conflict with the Duskhan League doesn’t start to really ramp up until weeks after the Yevethan Purge which happened in the last third of Before the Storm I would love it if there was a timeline that showed who was where and when Does this exist? Maybe I should google thisI’m having some trouble understanding the Yevetha here It mostly comes down to their biology and culture I guess? I feel like the Imperial officer that Leia uestioned “blood loads of blood and they just murder everyone” I think part of this is due to secrecy surrounding their species in book 1; Nil Spaar doesn’t want the New Republic to learn anything about them But they’rereptiles maybe? Higher status males are constantly killing lesser males? They have breeding females?? Blood fertilizes their eggs??? So confusedPerhaps because I’ve been recently reading nonfiction about World War II but the Yevetha struck me as being similar to the American perspective of the Japanese during that time xenophobic racist hugely violent undertaking a huge colonial expansion and very technologically adept They seem irredeemably evil Usually Star Wars has some bad guys that are understandable or have been forced into siding with someone they otherwise wouldn’t but the Yevetha almost remind me of terrorists from a Tom Clancy novel You can’t reason with them and they’re so incredibly violent and closed minded that complete annihilation seems the only option here I never want to root for that IN CONCLUSIONI would say that Shield of Lies was an improvement over the first book were it not for the fractured disconnected structure Why didn’t McDowell structure things like Before the Storm where the three plotlines were interwoven with each other? As it stands we have Luke’s pointless mother uest bookended by an interesting but superfluous bit with Lando and then a fascinating Leia section that honestly needed to be longer Hopefully book three will be a worthwhile payoffNext up the third X Wing book The Krytos Trap by Michael A StackpoleMy YouTube review Fleet Crisis FAs by McDowell
