Following a trail of clues across the galaxy, Luke Skywalker continues his quest to find the reasons behind Jacen Solo's dark downfall and to win redemption for the Jedi Order. Sojourning among the mysterious Aing-Tii monks has left Luke and his son Ben with no real answers, only the suspicion that the revelations they seek lie in the forbidden reaches of the distant Maw Cluster. There, hidden from the galaxy in a labyrinth of black holes, dwell the Mind Walkers: those whose power to transcend their bodies and be one with the Force is as seductive and intoxicating as it is potentially fatal. But it may be Luke's only path to the truth.

Meanwhile, on Coruscant, the war of wills between Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala and the Jedi Order is escalating. Outraged over the carbonite freezing of young Jedi Knights Valin and Jysella Horn after their inexplicable mental breakdowns, the Jedi are determined to defy Daala's martial tactics, override Council Master Kenth Hamner's wavering leadership, and deal on their own terms with the epidemic of madness preying on their ranks. As Han and Leia Solo, along with their daughter Jaina, join the fight to protect more stricken Knights from arrest, Jedi healers race to find a cure for the rapidly spreading affliction. But none of them realize the blaster barrel is already swinging in their direction and Chief Daala is about to pull the trigger.

Nor do Luke and Ben, deep in the Maw Cluster and pushing their Force abilities beyond known limits, realize how close they are to the Sith strike squad bent on exterminating the Skywalkers, to a nexus of dark-side energy unprecedented in its power and its hunger, and to an explosive confrontation between opposing wielders of the Force from which only one Master, good or evil, can emerge alive.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 2/20/2014

    " Of the new series of books, this one was just okay. At least it was better then the last book. The best part, though, was reading about Luke killing a bunch of Sith. Awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bukminster | 2/10/2014

    " The first 3/4 was 2-star, the last 1/4 was a 4-star "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/7/2014

    " The only problem with this book is that it is a chapter in an ongoing series, so it has no actual start or finish. I haven't read a Star Wars novel in years, so it is interesting to read that Luke, Leia, and Han Solo all have children, some of whom have fallen to the dark side and died already. It would seem that the Star Wars saga will continue on forever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivy | 12/14/2013

    " I am normally not into Star Wars but I have been loving these. Go figure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Willy James | 12/3/2013

    " a 4 star Star Wars book isn't the same as a 4 star of another book. I judge it as a Star Wars book only. I was worried after the second book that this series would start to fall apart but this book was a little better then the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 10/13/2013

    " Oh my, what great ending. This is could be the cornerstone book of the entire series, because I can't see it getting better than this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gene | 10/9/2013

    " I enjoyed this entry to the series a great deal - the storyline involving the Jedi Council and Daala is very well done. The story With Ben an Luke, started off very slow, then picked up at the end - with a battle against several Sith. Very nice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Haugh | 9/30/2013

    " Not half as good as the first 2 fate of the jedi books. Very slow, too philosophical with no actual impact to the plot to be highly entertaining. Hopefully book 4 picks back up or I'm done with the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 9/26/2013

    " More fun with the Jedi and the Sith. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Summer | 9/25/2013

    " Not the strongest book in the series but not a bad read either. It is difficult to state much about this book without giving away part of the plot that has now been developing over a great deal of books. It did engage but did not surprise. Definitely a "building up" part of the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nate | 4/19/2013

    " I didn't enjoy this one very much, especially the part of the story in the Maw Cluster. I just didn't find the Mind Walkers to be very interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roy Rogers | 2/20/2013

    " a solid outing from denning. much better than his awful contributions to "legacy of the force" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 11/2/2012

    " Star Wars... my guilty pleasure... "

    " Best one in the series so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/27/2012

    " Now the series is getting kind of weird.... yeah. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Athena Braun | 1/10/2012

    " To me not really all that great..no answers about Jacen.Hopefully it picks up or I'm not sure if I want to read any more of this series...I have read better Star Wars books.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Siemers | 12/2/2011

    " Enjoyed it! Troy Denning just keeps teasing us with little bits of information though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JJ | 7/25/2011

    " I used to only add the more "intellectual" titles I read to Good Reads; but oh well... I do <3 my Star Wars books! #nerdpride "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn Nelson | 7/18/2011

    " Yep, I know it is Sci-Fi, but I am a sci-fi geek and it is a good escape from all the crap going on in the real world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crazyhorse | 6/17/2011

    " A tad slow at times, bet a great read. The ending was great "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 12/22/2010

    " Getting to touch bases with dead characters... some of which have been gone for many years was a wonderful treat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arwen | 12/19/2010

    " Again, Denning takes a series to a whole new level! "
