This even after having read the entire New Jedi Order series some time ago, where some of the last books make references to this trilogy. Granted I hadn't even read Truce at Bakura then, so not a lot of them made sense and frankly I hardly remember those books. But that's what happens when one particular series is twenty books long. It's probably a good thing I'm trying to read a lot of the older books in chronological order now. In a universe as large as the Star Wars one, it really is fascinating how authors years down the line can tie in characters and plotlines left forgotten.
I mentioned in Valenti's blog that I'd like to see the Vuuzhan Vong some more. But now that I'm thinking about it, the Ssi-ruuk wouldn't be bad either.
