Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, cloaked by the Force and riding with the hostile Sand People, have returned to the dunes of the desert planet Tatooine in hopes of finding what Luke so desperately seeks: contact with Obi-Wan Kenobi. Luke is hoping the old Jedi Knight's spirit will tell him how to help his love, Callista, regain her lost ability to use the Force. Tormented and haunted, Luke cannot rest until Callista is a Jedi in the fullest sense, for only then will the link between their minds and souls be restored. Yet brewing on Tatooine is news that will shake Luke and Han and threaten everything they value.

The disturbing piece of information is that the evil Hutts, criminal warlords of the galaxy, are building a secret superweapon: a reconstruction of the original Death Star, to be named Darksaber. This planet-crushing power will be in the ruthless hands of Durga the Hutt: a creature without conscience or mercy.

But there is worse news yet: the Empire lives. The beautiful Admiral Daala, still very much alive and more driven than ever to destroy the Jedi, has joined forces with the defeated Pellaeon, former second in command to Grand Admiral Thrawn. Together they are marshaling Imperial forces to wipe out the New Republic.

Now, as Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca, Artoo and Threepio regroup to face these threats, they are joined by new Jedi Knights and Callista. Together they must fight on two fronts, outshooting and outsmarting the most formidable enemies in the galaxy. In Dark Saber, the Jedi are heading for the ultimate test of their power: a test in which all the temptations of the dark side beckon. And Luke Skywalker must draw upon his innermost resources to fight for a world in which he can not only live, but dare to love.

    " This book is bad. Really, really bad. Also unnecessary. Don't read. "

    " As is often the case with Star Wars novels, they tend to be a mixed bag. Thankfully however, this one turned out to be much in the spirit of the original movie series (same great characters) while still containing an interesting plot. As with any book, there are plot holes or parts that may seem difficult to believe, but on the whole they are rather hard to notice when you get caught up in the adventure. Kudos to Kevin J. Anderson! "

    " The follow-up novel to "Children of the Jedi" is a novel interested in being as ambitious and entertaining and frentic as possible. Every moment seems iconic, every conflict takes place on a grand scale, and the use of continuity is first rate. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Andrew | 1/18/2014

    " This is the worst Star Wars novel of all time to me. It involves the Hutts building another Deathstar on their own dime, as cheaply as possible, and they want it shaped like a lightsaber. "
