Luke Skywalker, Jedi Master, has unified the Jedi order into a cohesive group of powerful knights. But as the new era begins, honor and duty will collide with friendship and blood ties. The Skywalker and Solo clans find themselves on opposing sides of an explosive conflict, with potentially devastating repercussions for both families, for the Jedi order, and for the entire galaxy.

A mission to uncover an illegal missile factory on the planet Adumar ends in a violent ambush from which Jedi Knight Jacen Solo and his protégé and cousin, Ben Skywalker, narrowly escape. It's the most alarming evidence yet that sparks of political unrest are threatening to ignite a total rebellion.

    " This book looks at the differences between Jedi and Sith. And even give a new way of looking at the Sith. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyndsey | 2/13/2014

    " John and I have a deal where I read a book of his and he'll read one of mine. Star Wars books are not my favorite, but it's interesting to see what happened after the movies. This one is actually better than some of the others I've read. "

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

    " Good start to the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joshua Fox | 1/20/2014

    " This series is the reason I quit reading Star Wars EU books. The author has no understanding of Lucas' characters and wants to continue the Star Wars universe as a vicious circle of events that never changes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Schmidt | 1/17/2014

    " This was a great start to the Legacy of the Force series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 1/13/2014

    " Good start to a new series of Star Wars books. I really liked how stuff happened on a continuous basis. That made it a really fast read for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 1/11/2014

    " Tight... this novel promises a dark series from the beginning. Allston, as usual, delivers an exciting addition to the Star Wars Expanded Universe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas Mccool | 12/22/2013

    " Such a refreshing beginning to a new saga following the sluggishness of the New Jedi Order series. Jacen Solo goes from being just another character to taking the prime role in a series, and it all starts here! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 11/15/2013

    " Jasen is going to turn sith. Jeez, he bugs the crap out of me. Wish there was more about Tahiri in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 10/16/2013

    " I hadn't read a SW book in awhile and this was an excellent choice to start with again. It does not contain too many characters (which sometimes is the case in SW books) or veer off on technical terms too much. The story is well paced and characterizations thoughtful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Hupp | 9/22/2013

    " I'm a total Star Wars nerd. We'll see how this series is now that it's been completed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vee | 9/5/2013

    " This book has a great pace and it quickly gets to the point at the end of the novel. Did I mention how much I like the end of this novel? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 2/5/2013

    " Mynock sith. Ha. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Travis | 6/14/2012

    " This book just wasn't very good. Jacen Solo is predictable from start to finish. The only real positive thing happening in this book is some much needed character development for Ben Skywalker. A very flat start to the Legacy of the Force series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eugene Nelson | 11/7/2011

    " So far this book is everything that I have come to love about Star Wars and it's authors. Thats a good thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Schreurs | 7/2/2011

    " Very good for a story after the last Episode in the Star Wars Films. Good read about how Luke is a master and how Luke and Han Solo are torn apart to different ideals "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 6/27/2011

    " Not bad, but this is still a three book series being stretched out to nine books. We're finally moving towards a conclusion here, and this has less filler material than most of the others in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marin | 6/27/2011

    " Heehee! I love my Star Wars books, what can I say? I am hoping the next one is out soon. I did wish for a little more humor from Allston but the book and storyline were solid and fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jose F. | 6/14/2011

    " Lots of loose ends at the end of the book. This series is mostly looking up, hope they don't go back to Nam Chorios, one of the most dreadful worlds in the GFFA. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruce | 5/30/2011

    " One of the best parts was R2D2 giving C3PO a hard time at the end of the book. I would say that this is one of the better books so far in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 11/22/2010

    " Like most star wars books, was an easy read. Fun adventure but nothing too deep. About what I expect for a star wars book. Still though overall enjoyed the book. "
