From the ashes of the New Republic, torn apart by the Yuuzhan Vong forces, the newly formed Galactic Alliance has risen, determined to bring peace to the entire galaxy. But first the Yuuzhan Vong must be contained once and for all. And so Luke Skywalker seeks a world long lost to legend: Zonama Sekot, a sentient planet believed to have repelled an invasion by the Yuuzhan Vong decades before. Deciphering the enigmatic secrets of Zonama Sekot just might turn the tide of this relentless war...

Remnant carries on the New Jedi Order series of books with some style. The story sees Luke, his wife Mara, Jacen Solo and a band of Jedi on the trail of Zonama Sekot. However, as you might expect, things don't go quite as planned and before they even get anywhere near Zonama Sekot they are up to their necks in trouble.

Sean Williams and Shane Dix weave an intricate tale here with believable characters and settings - although if I read one more novel that features a creature with an unusual sphincter then I think I'll scream.

I'm not sure that Jon Foster's cover really does justice to the contents of this novel and for some reason Luke looks like his lightsabre hand is on back to front.

An interesting addition to The New Jedi Order series that doesn't disappoint.
