The Destiny of a Galaxy, the Fate of the Jedi Order...

It is approximately three to four years following the death of Darth Caedus, formerly known as the Jedi Jacen Solo, at the hands of his sister, Jaina Solo. While Jacen's parents, Han and Leia, struggle to maintain stability and restore their ravaged senses by raising Jacen's young daughter, Allana, who has already brushed against the dark side of the Force, as a normal child, the Galactic Alliance is anything but stable.

A part of the agreement which ended the Second Galactic Civil War installed Admiral Dalaa, a former Imperial, as Chief of State, and mandated that the Mandalorians be made her elite guards, replacing the Red Guards and effectively condoning their negative actions. Dalaa is notoriously prejudiced against the Jedi, and has ordered the arrest of Luke Skywalker for extreme negligance in permitting Jacen Solo to turn to the dark side and instigate his reign of terror upon the galaxy. Luke, realizing that the galaxy is already in dangerously volatile from civil war and the Yuuzhan Vong Invasion, turns himself in to the GA governmental powers. Dalaa declares that Skywalker, Grand Master of the Jedi Order, must place himself involuntary exile, or the Jedi Order as a whole will be disbanded. Luke agrees, and he and his son, Ben Skywalker, now a Jedi Knight, set forth on an expedition to discover what led Jacen Solo, once a kind-hearted, tree-hugging young boy, to enslave himself to the dark side of the Force.

Their search leads them to the Baron Do initiates, a group of Force-sensitive Kel Dors with unusual Force capabilities. Simultaneously, Seff Hellin and Valin Horn, son of Corran Horn, both young Jedi Knights, have inexplicably come under the influence of a dark power which the servants of the light have never seen before.

Fate of the Jedi promises to be an extraordinary adventure which leaves me panting for March '09 and the release of Exile. Exile will be followed by Omen and Abyss later in 2009. You know, traditionally, in Star Wars, "fate" is essentially a bad word. "Fate" means a whole bunch of grief then a stunning, shocking, somewhat unfair but kind of fitting conclusion. "Destiny," on the other hand, means a long ordeal with lots of close calls but nothing terrible really occurring, and a haphazard ending that leaves you hungering for more.

But after the blatant cliffhanger at the end of the Legacy of the Force series, I am starving for the next installment in the Star Wars saga. May the Force be with you!

Bad to Terrible

Ive been a star wars buff since I saw the first movie when i was in my 20s. This book is, by far, terrible, boring, and the opposite of a page turner. In fact, if there is a bright spot in the galaxy, this book is the furthest point from it. A total waste of money. Boring and predictable plot, uninspiring characters, and meaningless. I actually found myself fast forwarding through pages, especially the Han Leia stuff at Lando's Kessel mining company. Dont waste ur time or money. Just wait to see what they come with next.
