From the depths of catastrophe, a glimmer of hope

After the capture of Coruscant, the mighty heart of the New Republic, a stunned galaxy fears that nothing can stop the Yuuzhan Vong. Still, that crushing defeat produces one small miracle: Jacen Solo is alive. Yet he can scarcely imagine himself in stranger circumstances.

The young Jedi Knight is in the care of Vergere, a fascinating creature of mystery and power, her intentions hard to fathom, her cruelties rarely concealed. But this master of inscrutable arts has much to teach the young Jedi . . . for she holds the key to a new way to experience the Force, to take it to another level—dangerous, dazzling, perhaps deadly.

In the wrong hands, the tremendous energies of the Force can be devastating. And there are others watching Jacen’s process closely, waiting patiently for the moment when he will be ready for their own dire purposes. Now, all is in shadows. Yet whatever happens, whether Jacen’s newfound mastery unleashes light or darkness, he will never be the same Jedi again. . . .

Listener Opinions

    " While this book from the NJO arc was not as action packed as some of the earlier entries in the series, it was still quite enjoyable. In it, we saw the "return" of Jacen Solo. We learn that he is not dead, but instead under the tutelage of the strange and exotic Force sensitive alien known as Vergere. She teaches him that the Force is neither light nor dark, and Jacen, seemingly accepts this, and becomes more powerful with the knowledge that a little bit of "dark" attitude is not always bad. I especially liked the scene involving "Ganner's Last Stand" which showed us that Jacen Solo was not the only Jedi maturing and changing as the Yuuzhan Vong invasion continues. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ems (Ems Reviews Books) | 2/16/2014

    " This is probably my least favorite of the New Jedi Order books. I didn't particularly care for the writing style-it's an author new to the Star Wars Universe, and he kind of butchered the style. I also HATED that he killed Ganner Rhysode, one of my favorite characters. At least he got a good death. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 2/14/2014

    " This whole book is a kind of soliloquy with Jacen tortured by the aliens. It's good, and it makes him seem more human and stuff but still. I took a star off because of the boring parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sky Christensen | 1/20/2014

    " Stover again writes a great novel conveying the inner struggle of a jedi "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlajo Webb | 1/18/2014

    " This is my favorite Star Wars book. I stopped reading them after this one came out. On some very deep level, it taught me how much of our character growth comes out of pain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise Morse | 11/28/2013

    " Finished very quickly. I enjoyed the deeper delve into the Yuuzhan Vong however i dont think I like where this new force perspective is going to take Jacen, my least favorite character anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 11/4/2013

    " a good job of confusing who is the traitor "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig Andrews | 9/24/2013

    " I thought this book was great. It really developed Jacen's character and made Vergere even more interesting than before. I wasn't expecting it to not feature the rest of the universe but it nice break of pace from the intergalactic affairs of the NJO. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan Long | 9/23/2013

    " My favorite one of this series. Loved how it follows Jacen POV throughout most of the novel. Kind of reminded me of I, Jedi in that way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeroen | 9/22/2013

    " Didn't like it as much as the previous book... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 1/21/2013

    " One of my favorite Star Wars books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manda | 12/2/2012

    " I love Jacen Solo and am so glad they didn't just kill him off and that was it. I loved this book because it was all about what has been happening to Jacen since his "death". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Cook | 10/1/2012

    " Stover delivers a good tale continuing the battle against the Yuuzhan Vong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Schmidt | 9/27/2012

    " It was a little boring at times, but it was interesting watching the psychological manipulating Vergere did to Jacen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vee | 4/30/2011

    " This is one of the best books of the New Jedi Order series. Traitor focuses on Jacen Solo's transformation. There's a lot of poetry and the ongoing debate concerning truths, the dark and light side of the force. But don't worry, there are some great action scenes in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlajo | 4/19/2011

    " This is my favorite Star Wars book. I stopped reading them after this one came out. On some very deep level, it taught me how much of our character growth comes out of pain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 9/29/2010

    " I knew he wasnt dead. It was fun watching him get tortured, and while I don't think he has completely come around, like Kyp, Jacen has made some glorious steps towards the awesome side. The most glorious part of this book, that makes it a must read for fans is the legacy of Ganner! Brilliant! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 3/6/2009

    " The New Jedi Order is my favorite series in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. It is a long and epic story, with large ramifications for all the Expanded Universe characters. It will keep you busy for a while! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 8/29/2008

    " This whole book is a kind of soliloquy with Jacen tortured by the aliens. It's good, and it makes him seem more human and stuff but still. I took a star off because of the boring parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justy | 3/10/2008

    " It's one of the most interesting of the Star Wars set. Very philosophical at times.

    There is no dark or light, only the force.

    I was in high school when I read it, I think it's time to reread it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manda | 6/15/2007
