Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo work to help refugees flooding in to the planet Duro from the Rim worlds. However the dreaded Yuuzhan Vong have chosen Duro as their next target. Jacen Solo, working at his father's side, finds himself on the horns of a dilemma: how to reconcile using the Force as a tool for good, yet still fight the evil invaders. He must make the right choice, for the future of his family, and possibly of the New Republic itself, hangs in the balance. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jimmy | 2/10/2014

    " This is the best book of the series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 1/31/2014

    " My least favorite of the NJO series so far. But I will say I did enjoy Jacen's character arc, it was by far the most interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/30/2014

    " This was the first book I read in the series, and I was kinda able to figure out what was going on, which was nice, but when I reread it it didn't spend twelve pages telling about what had already happened (a common failing among series; see the babysitters' club, the beacon street girls, WITCH, Alice, the Wee Free Men, etc.) but I suspect I would have liked it more had I read the first book first. The Solo twins are being themselves, only Jacen is having scary, cryptic dreams. oh, no! And Jaina has been injured, but she will get better...right? And their parents' marriage is falling apart. This has way too much character development for a typical sci-fi novel, but that's okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendan | 12/20/2013

    " The major premise of this book, Jacen's dilemma, failed to hit home with me. I just didn't buy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 12/16/2013

    " Things keep getting worse for the New Republic and for the Solo family. Even being reunited doesn't seem to smooth over emotional wounds and with little time for anything else the Solo's are fighting for their lives. Again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 11/10/2013

    " One of the better NJO books. Tyers does an excellent job of tracking all the right plot lines. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 I'm awesoMEGAN! | 11/4/2013

    " The Jacen inner conflict is getting better and better ..... still anticipating a Jaina Love Story in this series and what Mara's future holds. Pretty decent series .... just really long. Yuzhong Vong (sp?) need to get their asses handed to them already! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 10/29/2013

    " 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! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 10/10/2013

    " The best part about this book was its perfect size despite being a hard cover. However, the story serves as an important connector and worth the time if you're reading the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 5/6/2013

    " The ongoing saga of the Skywalkers fight against tyranny!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter | 2/21/2012

    " Below average, even for a Star Wars novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 1/14/2012

    " I'll be honest. I found it a little hard to read this, because the Duros were hard to deal with. It was tense, and it gave us good insight into Jacen and his attitudes towards the force, and what is defined as aggression. "

    " Is this the one where Leia cuts all of her hair off? Again, I've never managed to distinguish the books in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zekkaina (LadyDragonKeeper) | 3/29/2011

    " My first "New Jedi Order" book . . . I loved that the Solo kids were fairly prominent in it, but it was a switch from the "Young Jedi Knights" and the other "Bantam Publishing era" Star Wars books. =) "

    " Things start to turn around..., after looking grim...(classic story buildup)... Nicely done... "
