During this savage civil war, all efforts to end Jacen Solo's tyranny of the Galactic Alliance have failed. Now, with Jacen approaching the height of his dark powers, no one - even the Solos and the Skywalkers - knows if anything can stop the Sith Lord before his plan to save the galaxy ends up destroying it.

Jacen Solo's shadow of influence has threatened many, especially those closest to him. Jaina Solo is determined to bring her brother in, but in order to track him down, she must first learn unfamiliar skills from a man she finds ruthless, repellent, and dangerous.

Meanwhile, Ben Skywalker, still haunted by suspicions that Jacen killed his mother, Mara, decides he must know the truth, even if it costs him his life. And as Luke Skywalker contemplates once unthinkable strategies to dethrone his nephew, the hour of reckoning for those on both sides draws near. The galaxy becomes a battlefield where all must face their true nature and darkest secrets, and live - or die - with the consequences. Download and start listening now!

    " Okay... here is all I have to say... I love the journey that this series is taking the reader... but I really wish that they made Darth Caedus to be more of a bad ass. Its like, for the past 3 volumes he's been getting his butt kicked by every member of the Star Wars universe. Also, I don't understand how all of the people that hear that he is a dark lord are kinda like, "oh... okay." It just seems like a little bit of an understatement of the severity of the issues that are surrounding the story. Okay... here is what I really mean... the story simply feels like it has been going way too long and I kinda feel as though a lot of the major events have become trivalized (does anyone remember that he kidnapped his daughter? Or that he trashed the planet of the Wookies? Or that he's a FRICKIN' SITH!). Anyways... thats all I've got... waiting patiently for the final book. "

    " Yep, Karen Traviss really does Star Wars right. good book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caron | 1/16/2014

    " Fabulously populated universe, with characters I came to care about. One of the very few authors who gives me all the depth of a universe comparable to Marion Zimmer Bradley's best work. "

    " I couldn't get through Traviss' other two books in the series because, as apparently many others feel, the incessant focus on Boba Fett just stalls the story. I started, stopped, and skipped ahead with the others but stuck with one because I really wanted to see how Jacen's devolution would play out. I guess I'm glad I did because I now feel more than ready for the conclusion of this story arc, but it was a bit of a letdown that even after Caedus' public coming out, there was so little meaningful reaction, practically nothing from any of his family, and Traviss even suggests a joke from his own apprentice...seriously? I'll take it for what it is and the other 2 Traviss stories were, just a means to getting from Allston to Denning and now, finally, to the end! Can't wait to see how it all goes down. "

    " It seems that as this series progresses along it keeps getting better and better. Jacen finally reveals his true colors to the galaxy and Jaina fully embraces her destiny paving the way for the biggest showdown in Star Wars history since the Anakin Skywalker/Obi-Wan Kenobi showdown in Episode III. But the most satisfying part of this addition to an incredible series is to finally see Ben Skywalker fully grow into his role as a Jedi. He may possess a great deal of self-doubt about his own abilities and moral compass, but I think he will be a great Jedi Knight one day, just like his father. All in all, a great Star Wars novel. "

    " 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. "

    " Well, time for Book 9. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 12/26/2013

    " It's Star Wars - The Next Generation! Don't forget to read the prior "Legacy of the Force" books in this series or the story won't make sense. Good choice of title - many revelations made on different levels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 12/7/2013

    " Very good and compelling penultimate book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tama Wise | 11/2/2013

    " I liked it well enough I guess ... It's pulp fiction, even if set in a familiar setting. Pity that the great evil in the setting had all these books to flesh out and his eventual fall to the dark side was actually sort of hammy ... but then this isn't high fiction, is it? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 10/19/2013

    " I just don't care much for Mandalorian culture. And that's all this was. Hoping for a satisfying conclusion in book 9... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sr. Barr | 3/29/2013

    " I have read most of the Star Wars books. This book is somewhat predictable. However still enjoyable. I like the twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 9/27/2010

    " 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 Bonnie | 6/25/2010

    " I really like the spin of this book: pairing Jaina with Boba Fett. Super interesting. Also, Jacen's continuing plummet was well written here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Schoolfield | 3/29/2010

    " Better than your typical penultimate entry in a long series. This one actually had several key payoffs. Overall the series is still a disappointment, but Traviss' work with Boba Fett and his family/culture have without question been an unexpected bright spot, and the best part of the whole endeavor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan Mathews | 8/27/2009

    " Another Traviss addition to the series. Definitely her best our of the three she did, but I always feel like the mood and pace of the arc takes dips and deviates when her books come in. Not bad though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wesley | 3/16/2009

    " "Travissty" strikes! She kept the collaborated plot moving along but her approach stunk. I really didn't like this book...the training...the culture rewrite she felt entitled to do in this and her other story arc.... I just glad she didn't get to end the story arc. "
