Chief of State Natasi Daala has been overthrown, and the Jedi Order has taken control of the Galactic Alliance. But while the new governors dismantle Daala's draconian regime, forces still loyal to the deposed official are mobilizing a counterstrike. And even the Jedi's new authority may not be enough to save Tahiri Veila, the former Jedi Knight and onetime Sith apprentice convicted of treason for the killing of Galactic Alliance officer Gilad Pellaeon.

Meanwhile, Luke and Ben Skywalker are relentlessly pursuing Abeloth, the powerful dark-side entity bent on ruling the galaxy. But as they corner their monstrous quarry on the planet Nam Chorios, the two lone Jedi must also face the fury of the Sith death squadron bearing down on them. And when Abeloth turns the tables with an insidious ambush, the Skywalkers' quest threatens to become a suicide mission.

    " I didn't really care for Luke and Ben's storyline, I thought it was a bit contrived and irrelevant to their overall arc through the series. It just did nothing to develop their characters or the Abeloth plot (which, I'm sorry, is just a dead horse being beaten after the Maw incident). I was more interested in the coup on Coruscant and the slave revolts (hell, "Amelia's" filler chapters were more entertaining than the rest). The ending was also a tad deus ex machina. "

    " Not as boring as the previous books in the series. Starts out blah, but picks up about half-way through and becomes an okay book. This particular Star Wars series is just not that great. Too many characters to try to fit into each book. Seems like they should make stories that focus on a smaller group of characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 2/8/2014

    " Why did it take me so long to read this? Oh, because Allston wrote some boring passages that didn't get interesting. The ending was great, but he should really stick with the X-Wing books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Siemers | 2/5/2014

    " Good developments. Furthered the story along and didn't drag it out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bjoern | 2/3/2014

    " I wasn't exactly thrilled how the FotJ series ran up till now. But nonetheless this latest installment in the story arc was simply enjoyable. That it's the seventh in a row to handle the same characters, factions and ideas seems to finally pay off after some rather disappointing books where the balance and weighting between those same elements did not really work out to a fine result. What's more important: now we have reached a point where those same elements extort a feeling of "what? No! it can't be the end of the book, i want to know what happens next" rather than "ah good there we go again" or even worse sentiments. it might even get to the point where the whole awkward storyline will be worth the amount of attention that it has got with a complete 9 part series. "

    " In the Fate of the Jedi series, I think this was my least favourite. I would describe it as 35% interesting and exciting. The rest was a big snorefest. In this book we finally find out Tahiri's fate. More Vestara and Ben with Luke being all prickly to them being around each other. Vestara and Ben are the best thing going in this series. I pray they delve more into them next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 1/20/2014

    " This is the next book in the Fate of the Jedi series with a plot spread throughout the Star Wars Universe. On Coruscant, the Jedi deal with Chief of State Natasi Daala & Tahiri Veila's murder trial ends; Luke & Ben Skywalker travel to Nam Chorios and continue to battle Abeloth and the Sith; and Han & Leia Solo find themselves on Klatooine dealing the slavery rebellion. I enjoy how this author is able to interject some humor within the characters without losing any pace in the action and adventure. "

    " Liked this book a lot; keeps you guessing about Vestara. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremiah | 12/27/2013

    " Another fun read from the Star Wars universe. "

    " Good book of the series, can not wait to see what happens next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marin | 11/29/2013

    " Heehee! I love my Star Wars books, what can I say? I am hoping the next one is out soon. I did wish for a little more humor from Allston but the book and storyline were solid and fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jon | 11/6/2013

    " Not as good as others in the series. Much of it felt like filler. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vee | 11/6/2013

    " This series is shaping up well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Willy James | 9/24/2013

    " A good addition to The Fate of the Jedi series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 3/11/2012

    " Like most star wars books, was an easy read. Fun adventure but nothing too deep. About what I expect for a star wars book. Still though overall enjoyed the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobby | 3/10/2012

    " Probably not my favorite in this series, but it wasn't bad. Some elements are dragging on, but there was decent movement in others story-lines. The series is definitely worth checking out if you are a SW fan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stefan | 12/25/2011

    " I thought this was the best book of the series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 11/20/2011

    " Not bad, but this is still a three book series being stretched out to nine books. We're finally moving towards a conclusion here, and this has less filler material than most of the others in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron Vitale | 11/15/2011

    " This series hasn't been as strong as some of the past ones, but I do like where it's going regarding character development. As there's only so much you can do with major characters like Luke Skywalker, I did enjoy what Allston has done with what he could work with. Was a fun read. "

    " Lots of loose ends at the end of the book. This series is mostly looking up, hope they don't go back to Nam Chorios, one of the most dreadful worlds in the GFFA. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruce | 5/30/2011

    " One of the best parts was R2D2 giving C3PO a hard time at the end of the book. I would say that this is one of the better books so far in the series. "

    " Like most star wars books, was an easy read. Fun adventure but nothing too deep. About what I expect for a star wars book. Still though overall enjoyed the book. "
