about

As a beleaguered galaxy fights its way back from the brink of destruction, the Jedi’s most fearsome enemy plots to end the war–and claim victory–with a final act of domination. . . .

The troubles for the embattled living planet Zonama Sekot have just begun. As Luke Skywalker and Jacen Solo negotiate its place in the galactic struggle against the Yuuzhan Vong, one of its organic ships is taken by the alien invaders. Scientist Nen Yim is ordered to use the captive to find weak spots in Zonama Sekot’s technology. But what Nen Yim discovers about the planet and its mysteries shocks her to the core. Clearly her people have gone terribly astray. For the peace-loving planet harbors not only the key to its own destruction, but the long-forgotten secrets of the Yuuzhan Vong themselves.

Meanwhile, General Wedge Antilles, commanding one fleet in a three-pronged campaign to retake the Bilbringi system, is suddenly stranded deep in Yuuzhan Vong space, cut off from all contact. Wedge and his ships must rely on trickery and brilliant battle tactics if they are to survive long enough to ensure the success of one of the deadliest and most crucial missions the Galactic Alliance forces
have ever seen. . . .

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 Not terribly important, but a good read This is a very good book that feels slightly out of place. This is the second to last NJO book, yet almost all the main characters in the series are MIA. If you combined this book with a fuller story for Luke and co. you'd have a much stronger finish. I loved the portrayal of the three Yuuzhon Vong who become a focus of this book. This is Nom Amor at his best and Nem Yim is excellent as well. Lots of good stuff from Corran and Tahiri as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Closing in on the End "The Final Prophesy" is the second to last novel in the long Star Wars story arc the New Jedi Order. In it, our usual cast of heroes, Luke, Han & Leia, take a back seat to two other Jedi protagonists, Tahiri Veila & Corran Horn. They form an uneasy alliance with three Yuuzhan Vong who, like the Jedi, are looking for the living planet, Zonama Sekot. Nen Yim, a Vong shaper wants to discover its secrets. Harrar, a priest, is there for more or less the same reason. Nom Anor, disguised as the prophet Yuu'shaa, is there to destroy the planet. The book follows the group through their initial meetings and subterfuge to keep things as secret as possible, and climaxes when they discover each other's secret agendas. As a side story (which really has no connection to what is happening on Zonama Sekot) Wedge Antilles is left marooned in Vong territory and must fight his way out with a bit of help from his friends who arrive just in time to save him. Sorry if I spoiled it there. A good lead to the (hopefully) exciting climax to the arc in The Unifying Force.
