The epic Star Wars odyssey enters a new frontier as the heroes of the New Jedi Order confront a monstrous evil–insidious, unseen, and insatiable. . . .

Despite being given new worlds to populate, the insectoid Killiks have not found peace. An unknown enemy has been attacking the new nests–and the Killiks hold the Jedi responsible. Traveling back to the Unknown Regions to unravel the mystery, the Skywalkers and Solos discover an evil far more familiar than they ever expected . . . and even more terrifying. Why does the Dark Nest want to kill Mara? Will Jacen’s apocalyptic vision trigger another galactic war or prevent one? And perhaps most ominous of all, what deadly secret are the Killiks hiding?

To find out, Luke, Mara, Han, and Leia mustembark on a perilous journey into the uncharted void between right and wrong. The ferocious Unknown Terrors are only the beginning of the awesome challenges that lie ahead in their quest to fathom the unfathomable. For an obscure dispute is about to explode into chaos, pitting Jedi against Jedi–and threatening the very galaxy itself.

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 Another great Star Wars novel by Troy Denning Troy Denning is quickly becoming a favorite Star Wars author of mine as both this series of books and his contributions to the NJO series were full of action, suspense and surprises. The Unseen Queen takes us back to the frontier between Chiss and Killick space where the insectoid race is afflicted with a mysterious disease that they believe has something to do with the Chiss or the Galactic Alliance. In response to their pleas for help, the usual gang of heroes (Luke, Leia & Han) come to see what they can do to help. Instead, they become embroiled in a labyrinthine plan to take over the galaxy (what's new???) and to start another disastrous war in the galaxy. The final action scenes are the best written, and I hope that the third and final entry into the trilogy wraps things up neatly, as there were certainly some loose ends at the end of this novel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good follow up to Joiner King. The 2nd book in this trilogy was another very good one. I loved having a story where Han and Luke are together sharing an adventure (which hasn't happened enough in previous Star Wars novels). Story is well paced and has some interesting plot twists (I.E. Jacen Solo's story) which will keep any Star Wars fan interested to find out what happens next.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad, not the best. This book is a bit slow moving for the Star Wars books I am used to. I have read most all of the Star Wars books in print, and this one is maybe the slowest of the bunch. While it may be important to the building of the story for the subsequent books to follow, in some ways it seems just to be a minor bridge in the series, and excuse to publish an extra book in the series. I think the book had too little action and true plot. I found different places where I found myself saying, "so what, get on with it." I love Star Wars, and these books are my favourite read, but I believe this one misses the mark. The series is a very worthwhile read, and this book is essential to the building process, so buy it. However, be aware that this is not going to be the same exciting read you are accustomed to from this author and this series.
