WEDGE: "What did you do to her?"
KUELLER: "I did nothing to President Organa Solo. I merely gave you a demonstration of my powers. Overpopulation is such a problem, don't you think? I just rid the galaxy of at least a million lives. More room for the rest of us."

LEIA: "Senator Meido has a point. Things are never as simple as they seem. Not even in accusing another member of this council of sabotage. Have your no-confidence vote. You can put a political spin on everything. But I will stand by my record. Since the Battle of Endor I have served the Rebellion against the Emperor. And I served it well. You can play all the political games you want, Meido. You can manipulate things from behind the scenes. You can destroy the unity that has marked this body from the very beginning. And while that might give you personal power, it will only hurt the New Republic. I hope you understand that. I hope you factor that into what you're doing."
MEIDO: "I know what I'm doing. I don't plan to harm the New Republic. I plan to help it."
LEIA: "Your methods leave a lot to be desired."
MEIDO: "And so do yours, Princess. So do yours."

Though The New Rebellion has some slow parts in the middle, particularly with scenes with Han and Lando, it's pretty interesting throughout, especially toward the end.
Basically, a bomb goes off in the Senate chamber and the main characters try to figure out who let it off while also trying to figure out who the mysterious man in the skull mask is and what his connection might be to the bombing.
Something that I really liked about this book was all the different interactions between characters that don't interact normally in Star Wars books. Some examples were the teaming of Wedge and Leia, and Mara and Han. It was cool to read about them working together because usually the characters don't interact too much directly, and I thought parts where they were working together was just fun to read. Something else that I really liked was the part where Leia goes to Alamania to rescue Luke and them having to work together by themselves to escape the villain. Having Luke and Leia work together by themselves is something that I rarely find in the E.U, so I thought that was great!
Another cool thing was the appearances of other characters from other Star Wars Legends novels. Some were Sinewy Ana Blue from the Han Solo trilogy and Brakiss from the Young Jedi Knights series.

SUMMARY FROM WIKIPEDIA:
The Dark Jedi Kueller sets in motion a plan to bring down the New Republic and the new generation of Jedi. First, he kills over a million innocent natives of the planet Pydyr and then sets off a bomb in the New Republic Senate Hall.
As Jedi Master Luke Skywalker searches for the one behind all of this, Leia Organa Solo has her own problems arising from conflicts with newly elected former imperials in the senate, and the framing of her husband Han Solo by the smuggler Jarril, who is suspected to be responsible for the senate bombing.
As Han Solo travels with Chewbacca to the Smuggler's Run to investigate the actions of Jarril in hopes of getting to the bottom of the Senate bombing, Luke Skywalker visits Brakiss on Telti looking for information, and Lando Calrissian heads to The Run after Han Solo who he fears is in danger. Meanwhile, Cole Fardreamer, with the aid of R2-D2 and C-3PO, discovers a plot to install all New Republic X-wing's with remote detonators. Leia becomes aware of this and concedes her position as Chief of State to Mon Mothma in order to rescue Luke from Kueller who has taken him prisoner on Almania.
After Han rescues Lando, rather than Lando rescuing Han, from the clutches of the crime lord Nandreeson, and the two of them aide hundreds of smugglers after an accidental bombing of the run, Han also heads to Almania to rescue Luke.
Han arrives at Almaniain the midst of a vicious battle between New Republic forces led by Wedge Antilles and Kueller's fleet. Han is also met by Talon Karrde and Mara Jade who have brought Ysalamiri to assist in the battle against Kueller.
After a long gruelling battle against Kueller, in which Kueller has gained a tremendous amount of power fueled by Luke's own anger at himself for allowing Kueller to fall to the dark side, Luke is preparing himself for death at Kuellers hands as Han arrives on the scene with the Ysalamir, sapping both Luke and Kueller of their power, and in doing so allows Leia to finish Kueller with two lethal blaster shots. R2-D2 and C-3PO simultaneously thwart Kueller's plan to detonate millions of droids across the galaxy, enabling Leia to return to Coruscant and regain her post as Chief of State from Mon Mothma.
