Repercussions from the dark side's fatal seduction of Jacen Solo and the mysterious plague of madness afflicting young Jedi continue to wreak havoc galaxy-wide. Having narrowly escaped the deranged Force worshippers known as the Mind Walkers, and a deadly Sith hit squad, Luke and Ben Skywalker are in pursuit of the now masterless Sith apprentice. It is a chase that leads to the forbidding planet Dathomir, where an enclave of powerful dark-side Force-wielders will give Vestara the edge she needs to escape - and where the Skywalkers will be forced into combat for their quarry and their lives.

Meanwhile, Han and Leia have completed their own desperate mission, shuttling madness-stricken Jedi from Coruscant to a safe haven in the Transitory Mists and beyond the grasp of Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala. But the bold maneuver has intensified Daalas fury, and she is determined to shatter Jedi Order resistance once and for all.

Yet no greater threat exists than that which still waits in the depths of the distant Maw Cluster: a being of pure, ravenous dark-side energy named Abeloth calls out across the stars to Jedi and Sith alike. For some it may be the ultimate source of answers crucial to their survival. For others it could be the ultimate weapon of conquest. But for all, it is a game-changing and life-altering encounter of untold magnitude and a tactical gambit with unimaginable consequences.

    " This is the fourth book in the Fate of the Jedi series in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. In this story, Luke & Ben Skywalker find themselves on Dathomir and fighting against the Nightsisters. Also politics are also in play on Courscant between the Galactic Alliance and the Jedi Order. This author has a great sense of humor which comes across in the dialogue between characters. "

    " By far not the best SW book to date, but it moves the story arc along nicely. "

    " Tremendously boring until the last 100 pages or so. The larger storyline is very mediocre compared to the Vong, but stimulating enough to keep reading. "

    " I get the feeling that the more interesting stuff in this book was supposed to be Ben and Luke's adventures on Dathomir, but what actually turned out to be the most interesting stuff was Han and Leia and the stuff with the Jedi on Coruscant. Ben and Luke's adventures were entertaining, but upon completion of the book I couldn't figure out why it was necessary. It didn't really advance the Sith/investigation plotlines and most of it (particularly the tribes and games stuff) felt like fluff. I'm hoping there is a big payoff for it later in this series. Also, Moff Lecersen and company are a weak and uninteresting group of conspirators. I enjoyed the book, and it made me want to keep reading the Fate of the Jedi series, but things need to pick up fast if my interest is to be kept. Read only if you've read every other Star Wars Expanded Universe book ever, as this is definitely for the hardcore SW fan. "
