Aaron Allston: Rebel Dream

Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

Scattering like rats before the Yuuzhan Vong’s invasion of Coruscant, the panic-stricken members of the New Republic Advisory’s Council pause just long enough to set up a mock defense on nearby Borleias—a transparent attempt to buy time that fools no one, least of all the Jedi.

Leia and Han Solo trek from world to world to foment rebellion against the New Republic’s disastrous appeasement policies. But Luke Skywalker has chosen the most dangerous assignment of all: to sneak into the Yuuzhan Vong’s stronghold on Coruscant. His outrageous scheme to gain entry is either brilliant or suicidal, depending on the outcome. And bearing down swiftly on Borleias is a Vong invasion fleet, determined to destroy the galaxy’s remaining defenders. . . .

Aaron Allston: Rebel Dream

Nagyon jó kis könyv volt, hozta a szerző megszokott könnyed, humoros stílusát. Kiemelném, hogy így a sorozat 4. duológiájában végre egy első részhez méltó történetvezetést kaptunk, miszerint az igazán fontos cselekményszál csak bevezetve lett, ami határozottan felkelti az olvasó igényét a következő részre, ugyanakkor egy másik kaland szép kerek végkifejletet kapott.

Az idézetemben kiemelt, egy bizonyos harmadrangú mellékszereplő felett pedig még mindig nem térek napirendre, hatalmas high-five jár érte Aaronnak, kár, hogy már csak így, posztumusz. Megöl a kíváncsisák vajon hogy folyataódik az Ő története :D

És én ezt majdnem kihagytam. És ezt a sorozatot egy éve majdnem félbehagytam a második kötetnél. De amilyen lassan indult be a sorozat, annyira élvezem most, hogy végre felpörögtek a dolgok.
Ráadásul az előző kötet után visszaugrottuk a háború kellős közepébe, de az első egy-két fejezet után végre ez sem csak monoton csihi-puhi, olyan karakterekkel, akiket amúgy alig vagy egyáltalán nem ismerek, és fél köteten belül aztán el is tűnnek, hanem azok, akikre kíváncsi vagyok, és akik még 30 év után is hatalmas formák. Wedge akkora arc, és akkora koponya, hogy sose bírtam még ennyire, a Han-Leia páros pont olyan, amilyennek lennie kell, Jaina szuper irányba halad, az újabbak közül meg Jag egyszerűen zseniális, kettejük dinamikája pedig mindent visz. (És azért Jag és Wedge kapcsolata is megérdemel egy nagy pacsit.)
Ráadásul nagyon szépen felvezette a következő részt, úgyhogy jöhet is mindjárt.

(És azért megjegyzem mellékesen, hogy névválasztáson ekkorát még nem röhögtem, mint ebben a kötetben. Igazából másfél napja nonstop röhögök. Talán majd elmúlik, de mivel a tag várhatóan a következő kötetben is felbukkan, egyáltalán nem biztos.)

Baljos Arnjak was a human; he spoke with the clipped, precise accent of
a Coruscant native, or one who aspired to Coruscant ancestry. He was
tall and lean, with dark hair, mustache and beard that made his pale
skin seem absolutely pallid. He was dressed in a multiply stained orange
pilot's jumpsuit that suggested he was a mechanic who wore only hand-me
downs, but Face introduced him as the team's biological expert – a man
with nearly as much expertise in Yuuzhan Vong technology as Danni Quee.

Wedge sighed and lowered his voice. „Tycho, we're about to achieve a tremendous victory we don't want.”
Tycho gave him a thin smile. „We'll put that in your biography. General Antilles was so good he couldn't fail when he tried to.”

„You can't help Jacen, but you can help me.”
„How?”
„With politics.”
„You know how I feel about politics. You know how good I am at it.”
Her smile returned. „The Resistance means it's time for new politics. The kind where, if the fellow smiling at you is planning to put a vibroblade in your back, instead of smiling in return, you shoot him.”
„Really?” He thought about it. „Shoot him just once, or as often as I want?”

She faced him, hoping that what she was feeling wasn't reflected in her expression. „I know what you're going to say,” she told him.
„I don't think you do.” Oddly, his face was not the stern mask she'd expected. If anything, he looked uncertain, unlike the Jag Fel she was used to.
„You're going to tell me that I screwed up. You're going to elaborate until you're certain I can't take it anymore. Then you're going to leave.” Her throat, constricting, caused her to lose control of the last few words; they sounded high and hoarse to her.
„No. We both know that your command decisions were far afield of common sense and effective strategy. We don't even have to discuss that.”

Wedge and Tycho looked up as Jag entered and saluted.
„I've known Jaina Solo since she was tiny,” Wedge said. „You're not her.”
Jag kept his attention fixed on the wall over Wedge's head. „I came in her place, sir.”
„She asked you to do that?”
„No, sir. I told her to go get some rest. That I'd speak to you and get things sorted out.”
„Sorted out.” Wedge exchanged a glance with Tycho, but his second-in command had retreated behind the safety of his sabacc face. „Do I need sorting out, Fel? ”
„I believe so, sir, through no fault of your own. If I may answer a question with a question, how old were you before you first disagreed with a commanding officer – and later found out you were right?”
„Twenty. Which is when I first had a commanding officer.”
„I'm about the same age, sir, and I have something to recommend before you talk to Jaina Solo.”
„Very well. At ease. Sit down. Let's hear what you have to say.”
Jag did as he was told and finally met his uncle's eyes. „Sir, I think that disciplining her now would be like hitting a bar of metal when it's superheated.”
„Meaning that you'll change its shape.”
„Yes, sir. And not for the better.”
„What about her reliability in combat? I need to take her off the line. She's not rational.”
„That would be disciplining her, sir, probably with the results I predict. I recommend against it.”
„Despite the fact that she deliberately disobeyed orders and risked a high-priority mission to pursue a personal agenda.”
„Yes, sir.” Jag cleared his throat. „Sir, I'd fly again with her tomorrow, and not out of gratitude. I think that what happened today was an anomaly. I don't think it will happen again.”
„Care to tell me why?”
„No, sir.”
