In a stunning turn of events, Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben, joined forces with members of the Sith armada sent to kill them - and turned their combined might against the monstrous being Abeloth. But with Abeloth gone, the Sith reverted to form, making a treacherous attempt on Luke's life.

Luke and Ben have no time for retaliation. A new and even more insidious threat is rising. Unless the Skywalkers survive to sound the alarm, the galaxy will suffer as it has never suffered before. But the reinforcements they need remain grounded on Coruscant, where the political battle of wills between the Jedi Council and Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala has reached a boiling point.

Now Luke and Ben must go on the run, taking along the inscrutable - and dangerous - Sith apprentice Vestara Khai. With a host of Sith warriors in hot pursuit, the Skywalkers soon find themselves trapped on the moon Pydyr, caught between their former allies and a mob of angry Fallanassi. A new truce may be their only hope.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Bevins | 1/18/2014

    " I like these series because they are so expansive. I imagine they would be hard to pick up in the middle if you hadn't read the ones before. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 1/13/2014

    " This is one of the best Star Wars novels I have read in a while. It has Jedi fighting Sith, Jedi fighting other Jedi, and Jedi fighting the Galactic Alliance. And most importantly, it was not written by Christie Golden. What more can you want. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gene | 1/2/2014

    " This story line is coming along nicely, although I still maintain that the Jedi temple story is much more interesting than the Luke/Sith story line. I still enjoyed the book over all though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 12/25/2013

    " This is the 6th part of the Fate of the Jedi series within the Star Wars Expanded Universe and cannot be read without reading the other books before it. There are many storylines going on while the Jedi battle Abeloth, the Sith, the Alliance, and sometimes themselves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Christensen | 12/16/2013

    " This was a good read, the best in the series so far. It convinces me further that this series would be awesome at about three less books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 OK Dad | 12/11/2013

    " A bit slow at times, but overall, I still love the original characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rabya | 12/10/2013

    " Loved it. This is the first Star Wars book I've read, and I am excited to read more. Nice to read about Han, Leia and Luke's adventures post Episode VI (Return of the Jedi). I recommend reading the books in order, but not necessary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bianca | 12/2/2013

    " Much better pace than the previous couple of books. I'm feeling better about the series now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 11/29/2013

    " Jedi vs Sith vs government vs Lovecraftian Force monster. Good for an escape. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Flip | 8/13/2013

    " Good read! Now this is what Star Wars was meant to be like! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 8/10/2013

    " Typical of this Star Wars series, and good enough read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kernos | 7/28/2013

    " This is one of the better books in the Fate of the Jedi series. The need for cooperation between the Jedi & Sith, the choice Saba had to make and the fall of Daala towards the dark side all make it rather more thought-provoking then prior books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 4/29/2013

    " Troy Denning has put together another great Star Wars book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 4/1/2013

    " After three books of slow build up, Troy Denning kept the action going in this one. Over 400 pages and I wasn't ready for it to end. Can't wait to read the next in the series, but I'm sure this was the pinnacle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brett | 7/31/2012

    " This is by far the best book in the series since Outcast. I couldn't put it down. The story, action, and characterizations were great. This is one of Denning's best contributions to the saga and gives me high hopes for the rest of FoTJ. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam Muszkiewicz | 4/30/2012

    " Yup, totally reading Star Wars novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 3/28/2012

    " On the whole I thought this was a pretty decent installment in the series. Some great plot twists and developments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Soccergypsy | 2/28/2012

    " Loved the interactions between the Skywalkers and the Sith. And that doesn't include the tensions and situations associated with the probable doublecross that should be expected of the Sith. Can't wait to read the next one in the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose F. | 7/20/2011

    " OK, this series is finally starting to look good... looking forward to the showdown with Daala. I still don't like the Abeloth plot, anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lea Ann | 6/8/2011

    " Yes, I'm a Star Wars nerd. What are you going to do about it? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lea Ann | 5/3/2011

    " Yes, I'm a Star Wars nerd. What are you going to do about it?

    " Jedi vs Sith vs government vs Lovecraftian Force monster. Good for an escape. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim | 3/5/2011

    " Excellent book! After the past two that were kind of so-so, this one really got things going and did an excellent job in building tension for the final few installments! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 3/4/2011

    " sadly, this "star wars" book just missed the mark. I found it boring. The plot just plodded along. The familiar characters just lacked their usual luster. I was disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 2/16/2011

    " Typical of this Star Wars series, and good enough read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 2/10/2011

    " Better than the previous ones. It provides an idea of where this is entirely headed to. I'll be waiting for Conviction to arrive in the next few months. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor | 1/31/2011

    " I didn't like how a new threat was introduced in the beginning of this book, the series already has a ton of villains and it seems a little redundant to add more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bobby | 1/22/2011

    " One of the better books in this series. Like how the intensity level was raised a little more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jose F. | 1/21/2011

    " OK, this series is finally starting to look good... looking forward to the showdown with Daala. I still don't like the Abeloth plot, anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 1/12/2011

    " I had to double-check the upcoming releases list on this one. This was reading like the end book. SO nice to have some progress on the story. Great character development. Big happenings. (TM) They might salvage this series for me, yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 1/11/2011

    " The story was simple and entertaining with a lot of good action. It am giving it four stars because Marc Thompson does an excellent job narrating the audiobook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/4/2011

    " Just meh... Most of this 6th book in the series felt like filler. This 8 book series could have probably be trimmed down to 5 or 6 books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/2/2011

    " This was a good read, the best in the series so far. It convinces me further that this series would be awesome at about three less books. "
