The troubles for the embattled living planet Zonama Sekot have just begun. As Luke Skywalker and Jacen Solo negotiate its place in the galactic struggle against the Yuuzhn Vong, one of its organic ships is taken by the alien invaders. Scientist Nen Yim is ordered to use the captive to find weak spots in Zonama Sekot's technology. But what Nen Yim discovers about the planet and its mysteries shocks her to the core. Clearly her people have gone terribly astray. For the peace-loving planet harbours not only the key to its own destruction, but the long-forgotten secrets of the Yuuzhan Vong themselves...

Since 1999, readers have been following the continuing New Jedi Order series. The Final Prophecy is the penultimate book in the series and there are a lot of things hanging in the balance. General Wedge Antilles becomes stranded in Yuuzhan Vong space and must rely on his wits to survive long enough to continue one of the deadliest and most crucial missions of the Alliance. Will he make it? And if so will he manage to survive long enough to celebrate?

Over the last few months there has been speculation, on numerous chatrooms, as to whether Anakin would return in this volume as a ghostly form. In one of Greg Keyes previous New Jedi Order novels, the author hinted that Anakin would return (Anakin/Tahiri prophecy). The truth of those rumours can now be discovered - I don't want to spoil anything, so I'm saying nothing.

Terese Nielsen's cover is attractive, despite the fact that the lightsabre looks more like a torch.

For those who have been following the series as it has progressed, there are still a few surprises in store. Roll on November when the final volume, The Unifying Force, is released.
