Forty years after the Battle of Yavin, a dangerous new era in the Star Wars epic begins: the revelations are shocking, the stakes desperate, and the enemy everywhere.

As civil war threatens the unity of the Galactic Alliance, Han and Leia Solo have enraged their families and the Jedi by joining the Corellian insurgents. But the Solos draw the line when they discover the rebels' plot to make the Hapan Consortium an ally, which rests upon Hapan nobles murdering their pro-Alliance queen and her daughter.

Yet the Solos' selfless determination to save the queen cannot dispel the inescapable consequences of their actions, which will pit mother against son and brother against sister in the battles ahead. For as Jacen Solo's dark powers grow stronger under the Dark Jedi Lumiya, and his influence over Ben Skywalker becomes more insidious, Luke's concern for his nephew forces him into a life-and-death struggle against his fiercest foe. And Han and Leia Solo find themselves at the mercy of their deadliest enemy: their son.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 2/8/2014

    " Not a bad continuation of the Legacy of the Force series. However, definitely not the best of the series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ross | 2/7/2014

    " While Troy Denning is not one of my favorite Star Wars authors (Star by Star), this is perhaps his best. The starfighter battle is a bit difficult to follow--just like the worldship battle in the above book--but the rest is a typical Star Wars book. Family politics deepen along with dark vs. light dichotomy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karan | 2/4/2014

    " I could go no further in the series know that a beloved character would be re-created into a new monster! I cried when Chewie died, mourned the loss of Anakin Solo, knowing that the monster created will have to be killed by other loved characters - I just couldn't go on.. . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Fogle | 1/27/2014

    " Very good for a "middle book" of a long series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derrick | 1/25/2014

    " Denning, while not totally redeeming himself from the Darknest fiasco, has certainly gone a long ways toward it. Jacen is becoming more and more powerful, and sets up Lumiya and Luke & Mara to face off, to see what happens. Ben is becoming a little "yes man" for Jacen, Han and Leia are now hunted by Jacen for supposedly trying to assassinate Tenel Ka and Allana. Jacen is completely over the edge, the galaxy's "peace" means more to him than the individual, and it is hinted at that there might be a hidden Order of the Sith, in defiance of the One Master, One Student sith rule. Just hinted though... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camille | 1/18/2014

    " Not my favorite of the series so far. The story felt like filler material. My main complaint of these post movie series is the fact that they get bogged down with immaterial dross. A symptom of the multi author format I believe. I had hoped with this being a 6 book defined series it would not suffer the same problems. Perhaps I had hoped in vain. On to book 4. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wesley | 1/8/2014

    " Well written and again shows where Jedi ties can cause serious issues...maybe the old republic had it right? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 12/23/2013

    " Jacen Solo is an idiot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Johnson | 12/19/2013

    " The weakest of the series so far, but not terrible. It makes me wonder if the critics of this series were correct, however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 12/19/2013

    " Satisfying third book in the series. Jacen continues his slide, Ben is caught in the middle, and we come close to losing some major characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Walt | 12/10/2013

    " Probably the best author in this series. His focus is more on the political aspirations of the characters. "

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

    " Jacen had better watch out, because he is facing dangers galore. This book was not one of my favorites in the series, but I did like it and it was well-written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 9/7/2013

    " The book was a bit slow going, but the last 1/5th or so was very good at developing the storyline and making sense of the characters involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bluesman | 8/13/2013

    " This series gets more intense with east book. Tempest is a page turner in every sense of the word!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcus | 7/19/2013

    " I didn't enjoy Denning's chapter for one reason: Lumiya's characterization was considerably more aggressive and condescending than in previous installments; it seemed out of character. But, the emotional strain between the core families was well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wilber | 7/21/2011

    " The book is a plot setting changing book that some how all meet at together at the end. The author is very go. the plot is a great plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 4/3/2011

    " The next big series after the New Jedi Order was a great read. It really delves into the consequences of the Yuuzhan Vong war. I could have done without the not-so-vague commentary on American politics, though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 12/3/2010

    " Less awful than I expected it to be--granted, this is not saying much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vee | 11/17/2010

    " Crazy. Wow. Great book! Great series so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/11/2010

    " Very exciting, and so much better than the second book. My favorite part was how involved Han and Leai were in the story - after all, they are what got me reading these books in the first place :). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wesley | 6/23/2010

    " What a great story arc this is! I like the new characters introduced in the last story arc, but now in a Star Wars setting. It's very interesting to see the problems when a small group of people, even just a family, are so powerful that their small issues can affect an entire galaxy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 3/6/2009

    " The next big series after the New Jedi Order was a great read. It really delves into the consequences of the Yuuzhan Vong war. I could have done without the not-so-vague commentary on American politics, though. "
