The Jedi Order is in crisis. The late Jacen Solo's shocking transformation into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who wield the Force for good: Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable and dangerous psychosis, criminal charges have driven Luke Skywalker into self-imposed exile, and power-hungry Chief of State Natasi Daala is exploiting anti-Jedi sentiment to undermine the Order's influence within the Galactic Alliance.

Forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind Jacen's fall to the dark side - and to learn what's turning peaceful Jedi into raving lunatics.

But finding answers will mean venturing into the mind-bending space of the Kathol Rift and bargaining with an alien species as likely to destroy outsiders as deal with them. Still, there is no other choice, and no time to lose, as the catastrophic events on Coruscant continue to escalate.

Stricken by the same violent dementia that infected her brother, Valin, Jedi Knight Jysella Horn faces an equally grim fate after her capture by Natasi Daala's police. And when Han and Leia Solo narrowly foil another deranged Jedi bent on deadly destruction, even acting Jedi Grand Master Kenth Hamner appears willing to bow to Daala's iron will - at the expense of the Jedi Order.

But an even greater threat is looming. Millennia in the past, a Sith starship crashed on an unknown low-tech planet, leaving the survivors stranded. Over the generations, their numbers have grown, the ways of the dark side have been nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way, a name whispered to them through the Force: Skywalker. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Jedi. Sith. It's all good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank Jarome | 1/18/2014

    " Another solid but unspectacular entry. A few things: first, it was too damned short! I mean, my god! That said, there was a lot that I liked. Luke and Ben finally have a real father-son relationship! The new Sith are awesome! And since it's only book 2 and they're already mentioning Jacen might be responsible for the Jedi going nuts, I know he won't be! Which is good, cause they need to keep some good memories of him. But all in all, good first effort by Golden, and I look forward to book 3 (been a while since I said that about a Star Wars series -- at least halfway through LotF, I think) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 1/8/2014

    " This was the second book in the FATE OF THE JEDI series. In the end, it felt mostly like filler. I'm disappointed to find out that Luke's banishment from Coruscant does not mean we see less of him. In fact, he seems to get even longer sections than usual. Argh! While a couple of things of interest to me happened, mostly it was just killing time for the big events that close the book. Having said that, it was a decent effort by this first-time Star Wars author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Hawks | 1/2/2014

    " For a first-time Star Wars author, Christie Golden has me impressed! This is a nice little action-packed book, and the author took pains to stay true to the characters as well as bring in an amazing amount of continuity "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tandriin | 1/2/2014

    " A nice Start in the New Series. The Story arc around Ben and Luke has many funny sitiuations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonn | 12/28/2013

    " I really was not impressed with this author. She jumped around too much with out explaining anything, not even in the end. You have to piece thing together for your self. This chapter in the "Fate of the Jedi" saga deffinitely needs help - possibly the author as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Haugh | 12/11/2013

    " Ok star wars book, not as good as book one in the series. "

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

    " This book worked a little better than Outcast. Definitely would recommend reading the Lost Tribe books first or the brief flashes to Kesh would make a little less sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charisa | 12/4/2013

    " Great sequel. The stage is being set for a lot of crazy stuff with the Sith and the mysterious illness that's occuring in some of the Jedi on Corescant. Again, I love the banter between Luke and Ben; they are the perfect father-son team! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony Black | 11/30/2013

    " So glad the Tribe from Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith: The Collected Stories is brought into the story. I felt that this novel was lacking some of the humor of Outcast but overall it was a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 11/30/2013

    " Not as strong as the first book in this series, "Omen" was still an interesting read. It really has me craving the next book, to see how these story lines fit together and how far Daala will get before they find what is causing the insanity in the young Jedi and stop her from overtaking everything. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Grave | 11/24/2013

    " I am not a fan of Golden's voice in this series. I found myself skipping her books throughout this series and relying on wookieepedia to fill in the blanks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 11/5/2013

    " It was a good book, but it made a little more sense if you read a prequelesque book separate from the series Omen is in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vee | 6/30/2013

    " OK, this book was better than Outcast. The plot thickens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Coyotejoe2 | 6/10/2013

    " not quite what I expected "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Don | 4/5/2013

    " I liked this well enough, but in the end, it just kind of stops. I know that it's part 2 of whatever, but really, each part should have a beginning, middle and end. This was more like two weeks in the lives of each character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 7/29/2012

    " Much much shorter than outcast, although it was definatly a good start for a new author of the series. The set up for the next books was well played. alot of answers given. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 3/11/2012

    " In comparison to Betrayal, I thought Omen was a bit slight, and honestly a bit heavy-handed in its foreshadowing, but in a part-2-of-9 sense, it competently moved the pieces around the board. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roy Rogers | 12/4/2011

    " Golden knows how to an excellent and fun tie-in novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Taylor | 8/9/2011

    " Another fun read. I am really enjoying the storyline with this series and look forward to continuing with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 7/22/2011

    " Well this series is shaping up nicely, I'm excited for the next 7 books! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 6/15/2011

    " I was disappointed that not much happened in this book. It set up a few plot lines for the next in the series but I don't know if I want to actually continue the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 5/10/2011

    " I almost dropped this book when Leia or Jaina rolled her eyes and uttered "Men . . . "

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paulina | 3/25/2011

    " the teachings that Luke and Ben received from the Aiing-Ti (? can't remember exact spelling) remind me of the stuff from the movie "what the !@#$ do we know?" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 2/25/2011

    " Another fun read. I am really enjoying the storyline with this series and look forward to continuing with it. "
