In the explosive conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy, Luke Skywalker summons the heroes of the New Jedi Order from near and far, as the Star Wars galaxy teeters on the edge of eternal war. Yet even the combined powers of the formidable Jedi may not be enough to vanquish the deadly perils confronting them.

The Chiss-Killik border war is threatening to engulf the entire galaxy and raising the awful specter of Killiks sweeping across space to absorb all living creatures into a single hive mind. The only hope for peace lies with the Jedi, who must not only end the bloodshed between two fierce enemies but also combat the insidious evil spread by the elusive Dark Nest and its unseen queen.

Leia's newly acquired Jedi skills will be put to the ultimate test in the coming life-and-death battle. As for Luke, he will have to prove, in a lightning display of Force strength and swordplay, that he is beyond a doubt the greatest Jedi Master in the galaxy.

    " It was a very interesting story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 7/14/2013

    " This trilogy was one of the better ones, and a nice break after the New Jedi Order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Schmidt | 5/19/2013

    " Liked it. It's also very hard to displease me when it comes to Star Wars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcus | 5/18/2013

    " One of the worst Star Wars book series comes to an end that is predictable, boring, and with a final battle that's way too short. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 5/4/2013

    " The last book in the Dark Nest trilogy, it's on par with its predecessors. Part way into this book, you will realize that most of it (and the series) was a set up for the Legacy of the Force series. Still worth reading for Dennings's good character work and excellent action scenes. "

    " Dont mess with Luke... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 9/30/2012

    " An exciting conclusion to the Dark Nest Trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 4/16/2011

    " I enjoyed this book, but it was the least interesting of the three. The R2 Situation came to a conclusion and I found that integrating quite well done and satisfactory. However, as with the NJO Series this war ended rather suddenly in an anti-climatic fashion. "

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

    " A decent ending to frustrating trilogy. I'm not sure why but the whole time I was reading the last two books I just couldn't wait to get to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 9/24/2010

    " Interesting follow-up to the too long New Jedi Order series. The Killiks are a bit frustrating sometimes, but Leia's turn to Jedi Academy makes up for that, she and Saba are such a good pair. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcus | 6/28/2010

    " I wasn't overly impressed with this first installment. It lags and wanders and frankly, the entire story should've been limited to this one book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/16/2010

    " A good continuation of the New Jedi Order series; the characters were true to their forms and seemed believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/26/2010

    " A decent Star Wars flick. Denning's strengths can be readily seen in his characters' strong dialogue and tense action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 3/6/2009

    " This trilogy was one of the better ones, and a nice break after the New Jedi Order. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 8/29/2008

    " I read this to be up to date on the Star Wars characters between The New Jedi Order and Legacy of the Force. Jaina and Zekk and Jacen are living with giant bugs who have telepathic links. It's sooooo weird. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manda | 10/17/2007

    " Awesome book that takes place after the New Jedi Order. "
