Luke Skywalker is worried: A handful of Jedi Knights, including his nephew and niece, Jaina and Jacen Solo, have disappeared into the Unknown Regions in response to a strange cry for help that only they could hear. Now the alien Chiss have angrily lodged a formal complaint, accusing the missing Jedi of meddling in a border dispute between the Chiss and an unidentified aggressor.

Luke has no choice but to head to the Unknown Regions for serious damage control. Han and Leia follow, intent on protecting their children from what could be grave danger. But none of them are prepared for what they find when they reach their destination.

A colony of mysterious aliens is expanding toward the edge of Chiss space. The leader of the alien nest is resolute. Adept in the Force, he is drawing old friends to his side, compelling them to join the colony and meld their Force-abilities with his - even if it leads to all-out war.

    " 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 | 12/6/2013

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

    " Good start to the Dark Nest trilogy "

    " I thought that The Joiner King was a great book to start off a trilogy with. Now I have started to read the second part. "

    " Nice short series.. Jacen dosent mess around "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janne | 5/18/2012

    " I confess, this book got five stars due to my current Star Wars: The Old Republic obsession. Now the Alderaan storyline makes so much more sense. Also, hive minds, one of my favorite sf ploys. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 5/3/2012

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 8/27/2011

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

    " I really like where the Star Wars series is going at this point (even though I am years behind where it is now. The moral dilemmas facing many of the characters are very relevant and often presented in really interesting ways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 4/3/2011

    " 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. "
