In the explosive conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy, Luke Skywalker summons the heroes of the New Jedi Order from near and far, as the Star Wars galaxy teeters on the edge of eternal war. Yet even the combined powers of the formidable Jedi may not be enough to vanquish the deadly perils confronting them.

The Chiss-Killik border war is threatening to engulf the entire galaxy and raising the awful specter of Killiks sweeping across space to absorb all living creatures into a single hive mind. The only hope for peace lies with the Jedi–and only if they can not only end the bloodshed between two fierce enemies but also combat the insidious evil spread by the elusive Dark Nest and its unseen queen.

Leia’s newly acquired Jedi skills will be put to the ultimate test in the coming life-and-death battle. As for Luke, he will have to prove, in a lightning display of Force strength and swordplay, that he is– beyond a shadow of a doubt–the greatest Jedi Master in the galaxy.

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 Great end to the Dark Nest Trilogy This was a great ending to what was a great trilogy in the Star Wars expanded universe. The most fascinating aspect of the book (and series in general) was probably the many different opinions each of the Jedi Knights had concerning the Killick Invasion; for instance, Jaina Solo was helping the Killicks against the Chiss while her twin brother, Jacen, was determined to kill the Head of the Killick Colony. Luke, Leia & Han often found themselves conflicted as to what to do, but managed to come out of it (as they normally do) without having burnt too many bridges with the many species and governments involved in the conflict. Throughout the series, I liked how the author subtly hinted at the dark path that Jacen Solo was following and the introduction of his very important "secret" he shared with Tenel Ka of the Hapes Consortium. Many of his thoughts and actions mirrored that of his grandfather, Anakin Skywalker, near the end of the Clone Wars. A misplaced sense of what is right and what is wrong, of what is true and what is false, and of what is good and what is bad. His descent into the Dark Side of the Force will almost certainly be the focus of the next series, Legacy of the Force, and should prove to be very entertaining for anyone who is a fan of Star Wars.
