In the Stars Wars galaxy, evil is on the move as the Galactic Alliance and Jedi Order battle forces seen and unseen, from rampant internal treachery to the nightmare of all-out war.

With each victory against the Corellian rebels, Jacen Solo becomes more admired, more powerful, and more certain of achieving galactic peace. But that peace may come at a price. Despite strained relationships caused by opposing sympathies in the war, Han and Leia Solo and Luke and Mara Skywalker remain united by one frightening suspicion: someone insidious is manipulating this war, and if he or she isn't stopped, all efforts at reconciliation may be for naught. And as sinister visions lead Luke to believe that the source of the evil is none other than Lumiya, Dark Lady of the Sith, the greatest peril revolves around Jacen himself.

    " This series took the New Jedi Order cast to an all to familiar level. I felt that the story was engaging, the characters well developed and the story line quick, but it fell into the same Starwars trap. While a New Jedi Order challenged the status quo and soared to new heights, this story failed to live up to the gigantic bar that its predecessor set. "

    " I really like that parts about Ben on Ziost. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 2/5/2014

    " More decent storytelling, funny dialogue. The plot moves on, a bit slowly and with enough detail to make you want to smack the evil characters, Lumiya, self-styled Dark Lady of the Sith, and Jacen, who has transformed almost fully into, as another reviewer put it (and put it very well), a galactic douche bag. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Shanks | 2/1/2014

    " This book is pretty good however it was a hard read for me. I'm not really sure why it stayed pretty well with the Legacy of the Force series. But it was just hard for me get into unlike the previous novels in this series. Hopefully I have abetter experience with the next book! "

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

    " A good book, but ultimately falling short of the previous in the series. Allston does a much better job than Traviss with the dialogue in particular, but this particular novel felt like it lost focus. The action was good, the plot developments made sense, and Jacen's transformation into a galactic douchebag is nearing completion. The war between the Alliance and the Confederation is reaching fever pitch and Allston does a very good job at playing up the tensions. However, unlike most books in the EU series, this book fails to take one of the primary characters as a focus and follow them throughout developing events. This was a trend developed during the Yuuzhan Vong series that worked really well, giving you different perspectives of the major crises as they developed from different viewpoints and locations. This book started with an exiled Han and Leia, and I was really excited as they reunited with Lando and began probing for clues to the origin of the current galactic crisis, but that storyline becomes watered down by others about half-way through the novel and I got the feeling that Allston couldn't make up his mind whether or not this was a Han and Leia story, a Ben story, or an Alema story. I think he spread himself too thin and I was left rather unsatisfied all around. The most interesting parts for me were Ben's trials on the ancient Sith world of Ziost. Really it's a place of mythology for most star wars fans, and the location doesn't pop up much, especially considering it's the homeworld of the rival, dark force path that continually threatens the galaxy throughout the series. Seeing Ben travel there and just getting a feel for the atmosphere of the place and its hints of malevolence was interesting. Allston does a good job making Ben an ambivalent character, I found myself rooting for the kid to make the right moral assumptions, cringing when he fell short and egging him on when he made the right choice. This is the son of LUKE for God's sake, and to see him struggle so much just humanizes him in a way that Luke can't be -- he's too perfect. I'm not really looking forward to the next book. It's Traviss again, and she gets to narrate the climax of the story. Ugh... "

    " I really enjoyed this. After the "darker and darker'ness" of the last 2 books, this was refreshing. Allston has a humor all his own and it shone through. Ok, Ben is sent on a mission by Jacen, which is really a test of whether he is capable of being Jacen's sith apprentice. Thankfully, Ben has some revelations and it looks like he is back on the correct path. In the end, Jacen still hasn't decided who he must sacrifice to become the Sith Master, but he has decided to take out his parents either way. The Skywalker and Solo clans are starting to pull back together, with the obvious exception of Jacen. Jag Fell comes back and is around Jaina. I hope good things come from it. "

    " aaron allston may have had a 8th grader write this book. at least the plot isn't too bad, but you can't really mess that up too badly in the middle of a series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 1/23/2014

    " An fun but totally random book about politics, laser swords, and evil people, this book was also kind of a time-staller before #5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 1/12/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 12/9/2013

    " This series keeps getting better. Jacen's journey to becoming a Sith is ever more intriguing, and some of his choices are quite surprising. I like the development of Ben Skywalker, he's definitely coming into his own more and an interesting character. Can't wait to read Sacrifice! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 10/31/2013

    " Again... not a bad addition to the Star Wars saga... but definitely not the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zekkaina (LadyDragonKeeper) | 10/21/2013

    " Five stars for a Star Wars book ... one of my favorite books from "LotF" (Legacy of the Force). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 9/30/2013

    " This series just keeps getting better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Roger | 9/25/2013

    " It pains me to give thumbs-down to a Star Wars work, but I just couldn't get into it. Danger: Extreme cheese ahead. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dustin Schafer | 9/19/2013

    " Meh. nothing happened in this one. Also, the constant skipping back and forth between characters kept me from immersing myself into the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Walt | 8/31/2013

    " The action builds up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 5/18/2013

    " This book was interesting, I just was lost because I didn't know it was book 4 in a series. It would help if that information was on the cover! Good action, but I feel Star Wars has been beaten to a pulp. The Force, blah, blah, blah. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janne | 5/16/2013

    " Read this I the wrong order because of the annoying fashion for not numbering books in series, or I might have enjoyed it more. Love the writing style of the author, even if the plot was out at sea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Fraser | 4/6/2013

    " The book was good and character progression was well done. I liked the struggle between Light and Dark that Ben Skywalker faces while he is alone on Zoist. It is interesting to see him come more into his own with out the influence of another Jedi. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Cheah | 4/5/2013

    " it was a great book but took me a long time to read so i rember much adout it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 4/1/2013

    " It is starting to get annoying how stupid many of the characters are in regards to how they interact and think about Jacen Solo. This issue has been getting worse as the series progresses. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephan Randle | 11/21/2012

    " This book is an exciting book for people of all ages. In the book, their are many lightsaber fights between Jacen Solo (Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo's son) and the other Jedi. The book also tells about the evil Lumiya the new Dark Lady of the Sith. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 11/2/2012

    " Nice focus on Ben Skywalker in this one; plus, Lando is back. Like Han, it would seem he hasn't lost a step despite being about 300 years old, but hey it's Star Wars, one needs to take things with a grain of salt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan Mathews | 12/30/2011

    " I'm glad to have obtained the information in this story, but it was certainly less intriguing than the others. There are important developments in every chapter, but it seems like a jumping off point for Sacrifice. Not bad. Not great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 11/25/2011

    " I suspect Allston remains my preferred Star Wars tie-in author simply because his favorite characters appear to be the same as my favorite characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Farris | 9/25/2011

    " This is the only book of this series that I've read but with the picture of Leia and Han on the cover I just had to pick it up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 9/7/2011

    " I much preferred this novel and feel like the series is now getting going. The plot lines for characters are much more believable now and I like the development of Ben. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luke Franklin | 8/7/2011

    " I get sick, so I stay home and read nonsense. It's quieter than TV. And only slightly more soul-sucking. "

  • 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. "
