Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

Shield of Lies is the second book in the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy. The book details how the threat mounts against the New Republic. Even as Leia attempts to find a diplomatic solution, Lando and Han find themselves squarely in the face of danger. Meanwhile, Luke’s knowledge of the Force is challenged as he explores his mother’s homeland.

Shield of Lies is an interesting novel as it provides a detailed perspective on life during the New Republic era. It builds the mysteries that were established in the first novel, Before the Storm, while creating excitement for the end of the trilogy. It is a great read for fans of the political and military aspects of Star Wars, as well as Luke Skywalker fans.

As Leia must deal with a new threat to the fragile alliance that binds the New Republic, Lando becomes a prisoner aboard a runaway spacecraft of unknown origin. The ship is following an unstoppable path to its homeworld, destroyed by Imperial forces. Luke continues his quest to learn more about his mother among the Fallanassi, where his every belief about the use of the Force is about to be challenged.
