about

Fighting alongside the Corellian rebels, Han and Leia are locked in a war against their son Jacen, who grows more powerful and more dangerous with each passing day. Nothing can stop Jacen’s determination to bring peace with a glorious Galactic Alliance victory–whatever the price.

While Luke grieves the loss of his beloved wife and deals with his guilt over killing the wrong person in retaliation, Jaina, Jag, and Zekk hunt for the real assassin, unaware that the culprit commands Sith powers that can cloud their minds and misdirect their attacks–and even turn them back on themselves.

As Luke and Ben Skywalker struggle to find their place among the chaos, Jacen, shunned by friends and family, launches an invasion to rescue the only person still loyal to him. But with the battle raging on, and the galaxy growing more turbulent and riotous, there’s no question that it is Jacen who is most wanted: dead or alive.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Allston's best effort in the Legacy of the Force series This is Allston's best entry in the Legacy of the Force series. It doesn't quite measure up to his excellent work in the X-Wing or New Jedi Order Series, but it's a quality read from start to finish. There's essentially two climaxes here (one about 60% of the way in) with the first being the most interesting. Ben continues to grow into one of the best characters in the EU. The rest of the cast is solid, even the horrendously-named Jagged Fel. This is the first time in 20+ books that Fel ha been worth reading about so big ups to Allston for being able to pull that off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Continuing Saga I'm enjoying the series very much, although the number of books and the length of time between releases is a bit frustrating. There's a part of me that wants to jump ahead! Jason has essentially become Darth Vader. But one issue that I have with his transformation is that he is becoming a bit more childish and petulant in his reactions and thoughts - I think that is a bit too much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stick to the starfighters, Allston. While Allston is a great author, his first experience in the Star Wars universe did not involve Jedi, moral dillema, and emotional suffering. Not to the extent that Legacy of the Force does. What Allston does not seem to understand is that these characters go through trials and suffering and their personalities are shaped around them. After "Betrayal" almost completely reveresed everything that had changed the characters in the Dark Nest Trilogy, I was very scared at the direction this series would go. Fortunately Karen Traviss and Troy Denning have more than made up for Aaron's shortcomings. The main thing that aggravates me is that in his books, the Jedi don't act like Jedi; they act like his starfighter pilots from the X-Wing series. So does everyone else. Everyone cracks jokes and makes light of the situation in his books, but in every other book in the series they act like they normally do. Take the beginning of the book for example. Luke, having gone through hell and back the past couple books (not gonna spoil anything) is suddenly A-OK and joins all the other jedi masters in some game where they all laugh and have fun. Han and Leia act completely different in his books; Han is actually more realistic considering his age, but Leia acts like an immature snob. And the thing that really annoyed the heck out of me, when Allana says "Like a trail of bread crumbs?" ... It's a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but apparantly they've all read Hansel and Gretel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally...a good one This Legacy of the Force series has been seriously lacking; the last book "Inferno" was dreadful but this is the best by far. The humour that Aaron Aliston uses to make his characters real is subtle and insightful. He brings in many old favourites from the original star wars (like Wedge and Tycho) and gives us other characters to love and hate. I have hopes that this series will redeem itself.
