After triumphing in Star Wars: The Unifying Force, the heroes of the New Jedi Order return in a dazzling adventure!

Luke Skywalker is worried: A handful of Jedi Knights, including his nephew and niece, Jaina and Jacen Solo, have disappeared into the Unknown Regions in response to a strange cry for help that only they could hear. Now the alien Chiss have angrily lodged a formal complaint, accusing the missing Jedi of meddling in a border dispute between the Chiss and an unidentified aggressor.

Luke has no choice but to head to the Unknown Regions for serious damage control. Han and Leia follow, intent on protecting their children from what could be grave danger. But none of them are prepared for what they find when they reach their destination.

A colony of mysterious aliens is expanding toward the edge of Chiss space. The leader of the alien nest is resolute. Adept in the Force, he is drawing old friends to his side, compelling them to join the colony and meld their Force-abilities with his, even if it leads to all-out war. . . .

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 Return of the New Jedi Order Great to get back to the characters we've spent years getting to know and love. Interesting to see the rebuilding after the YV war. Can't wait to read the next one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ending This book started off a bit slow as the author worked his away through the introduction of a few new (minor) characters and of the new "bad guys", the Killiks. However, the ending (no spoilers) is fast paced and crackles with energy because you really aren't sure what is going to happen. While I did not figure one of the major characters was going to be killed (as Troy Denning has done before), there were sufficient twists and turns to make me push through the last 100 pages as fast as I have read any Star Wars novel before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very interesting story After the new jedi order series ended it was going to be interesting to see what direction the Star Wars saga would go in. Well they did a very good job with this story. Not only was it interesting and action-packed but Luke finally gets to find out about his parents (Padme and Anakin) though in small amounts and this adds a new interesting storyline on the side. Even through it's the first in a trilogy, this story can be read by itself as it gives a satisfying ending without the 'to be continued' feel. Good read.
