Galactic Alliance's hard-won success in countering the Yuuzhan
Vong onslaught has proven all too brief - and the tide has
turned once more to the invaders' advantage. Having overcome
the sabotage strategies of the Jedi and their allies, the
marauding aliens have pushed deeper into the galaxy and subjugated
more worlds in their ruthless quest for domination...
has been remade into a Yuuzhan Vong stronghold. The remnants
of the resistance are struggling to form a united front. Luke,
Mara, and Jacen are missing in action. Clearly the stage is
set for endgame. Now, as Han and Leia receive the chilling
news that hundreds of high-ranking Galactic Alliance prisoners
face slaughter in a sacrifice to the enemy's bloodthirsty
gods, Luke and his team try desperately to convince the living
world of Zonama Sekot to join the Jedi's final campaign against
the Yuuzhan Vong.
even as they speak, a lone space station is all that stands
between Alliance headquarters on Mon Calamari and wave after
wave of ferocious enemy forces waging their most decisive
assault. At the same time, the Jedi's alliances throughout
the galaxy are being tested - and the chances of victory jeopardised
- by rogue factions determined to deploy the lethal weapon
that will exterminate the Yuuzhan Vong... and perhaps countless
among the Yuuzhan Vong themselves, the threat of revolt has
reached a boiling point - as the oppressed underclass and
powerful officials alike fear their Supreme Overlord's mad
actions will provoke the wrath of the gods. Ultimately, for
both the forces of invasion and resistance, too much has been
sacrificed - and too much is at stake - to ever turn back.
And now, nothing can stand in the way of seizing victory...
or facing annihilation.
had been a number of voices raised in protest in Star Wars
chatrooms about the fact that James Luceno would be the author
to tie up all the loose ends in this the conclusion of the
New Jedi Order series. Most moaning that his style would
not give the desired effect to the end of the series as his
writing was too long and drawn out. Well, excellent news for
those of you who were worried as Luceno wraps up this excellent
series in a most satisfactory way.
is also an interesting transcript of a collection of interviews
with people responsible for giving life to the New Jedi
fantastic conclusion to what has been a first rate series.
