In the war against the ruthless Yuuzhan Vong, the fall of Coruscant leaves the New Republic divided by internal strife, and on the verge of bowing to conquest. But those who steadfastly refuse to consider surrender are determined to seize victory against overwhelming odds. And now, finally, there are signs that the tide may be turning in the New Republic's favour...

Set almost 30 years after Star Wars: A New Hope, Destiny's Way sees Luke Skywalker trying to re-establish the Jedi Council but in doing so he may help to unleash the power of the dark side.

Walter Jon Williams writing is a little heavy going in places and it wasn't always easy to keep up with unfolding events, a criticism which will probably not worry most die-hard Star Wars fans.

If you have followed The New Jedi Order series so far then this is adds much to the chain of events so far, although personally I prefer the writing style of Aaron Allston.

The cover illustration by Cliff Nielsen is fairly average, but still way better than his poor cover for Traitor.

A worthy addition to The New Jedi Order series.
