As the war between the Republic and the scattered  remnants of the Empire continues, two  children--the Jedi twins--will come into their powers in a  universe on the brink of vast changes and challenges.  In this time of turmoil and discovery, an  extraordinary new Star Wars saga  begins....

While Luke Skywalker takes the first  step toward setting up an academy to train a new  order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are  taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to  work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But  when Hans and Chewie break away, they flee  desperately to a secret imperial research laboratory  surrounded by a cluster of black holes--and go from  one danger to a far greater one....

On  Kessel, Luke picks up the trail of his two friends,  only to come face to face with a weapon so awesome,  it can wipe out an entire solar system. It is a  death ship called the Sun Crusher, invented by a  reclusive genius and piloted by none other than Han  himself...
Kevin J. Anderson has written many bestsellers and has been nominated for the Nebula Award, the Bram Stoker Award, and the SFX Reader’s Choice Award. He also holds the Guinness World Record for largest single-author signing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book I read this book and really enjoyed it, much more than I had expected. I could not wait for the next book in the series after I read it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to the Star Wars Universe I am fairly new to the Star Wars extended universe and am very excited to learn more about it. This book is a great follow up to the Thrawn Triology but it does presume that you understand the story from the Star Wars Dark Empire comic book series. Thankfully, the author goes through the main points in the story so that you're caught up enough to understand this book (the comics aren't easy to come by at this point and the story falls between the Thrawn Trilogy and the Jedi Academy Trilogy but does not come up in most official timelines because it is a comic). Learning more about how the main characters from the original Star Wars movies lived after the movies is incredibly well done in this novel. The portrayal of the main characters in this book does feel appropriate and does consider that they have experienced quite a bit since the movies. There is a lot of sci-fi action to enjoy as well as gripping emotional moments that don't over power the high energy feel of the book. Sadly, Disney has decided that books like this no longer matter to the story of the Star Wars universe going forward but it is really up to the reader to make a decision on whether or not it is relevant to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Luke begins a harrowing journey to re-establish a Jedi Academy, beginning with a search of prospective students. Luke's fears and inhibitions of being a qualified instructor are tested as he struggles to teach what wasn't taught to him. Meanwhile, Leia and Han are pushed to physical and political limits while awaiting the arrival of their twins, Jacen and Jaina.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good story, and very funny! KJA does a wonderful job in this novel. For Star Wars fans, this is a must read, because of all the new jedi it introduces. But it also has a good story, and lots of humour that just wants to make you laugh out loud.
