Star Wars Dark Force Rising Timothy ZahnDark Force Rising (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy #2) by Timothy Zahn

Synopsis: The dying Empire’s most cunning and ruthless warlord–Grand Admiral Thrawn–has taken command of the remnants of the Imperial fleet and launched a massive campaign aimed at the New Republic’s destruction. Meanwhile, Han and Lando Calrissian race against time to find proof of treason inside the highest Republican Council–only to discover instead a ghostly fleet of warships that could bring doom to their friends and victory to their enemies.

Yet most dangerous of all is a new Dark Jedi, risen from the ashes of a shrouded past, consumed by bitterness…and scheming to corrupt Luke Skywalker to the Dark Side.

Once again my mom has bought me books. We went to the mall on Tuesday and stopped by the bookstore. Of course I had to check out the table with all the bargain books and I found a bunch that were one my wish list. I somehow managed to get it down to four books and my amazing mom bought them for me. She is seriously the best. Here is what I got:

Summary: Her brother’s near mortal wounding hadn’t done it. Fleeing to the rolling hills of the Highlands had failed as well. And while being captured by the most dangerous-looking Scotsmen she’d ever imagined had come close, it was staring up at two of the thickest, most well-muscled thighs she’d ever seen that drove Kyla over the edge. But the madness that overwhelmed her felt strangely like desire. It warmed places she’d never known existed. Nit, even should the handsome Galen MacDonald sweep her up and marry her, she would still be sworn to return and destroy her enemies. Yet if she could enlist the fierce warrior’s aid? The Scottish laird had claimed that the sweetest dish of all was never served cold…tonight she’d see if he was right.

Review: When I found out I won this from Goodreads I was beyond excited. Even though I haven’t read much by Lynsay Sands, and it’s been years since I last picked up one of her books, I remember really enjoying what I’ve read by her.

Unfortunately I was in a reading slump when this book showed up, so even though I was thrilled to have it, I didn’t read it right away. I didn’t want to force myself to read something I wasn’t in the mood for and end up hating it. So last week when I was finally in the mood for it, I picked it up and devoured it. I read it in one day. Actually, I read it in one night. I stayed up until 6 AM reading. I just couldn’t put it down. There were so many time this book had me laughing out loud. Kyla is now one my favorite characters. She is seriously amazing.

Guys, please read this book. If you are thinking about skipping it because of the cover, please don’t. It is so good. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to re-read it. I need to start reading Lynsay Sands Argeneau series again. I’ve really missed her writing.
