Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Star Wars fans, rejoice! For the first time ever, the first three novels in the wildly popular New Jedi Order series (Vector Prime, Dark Tide I: Onslaught, and Dark Tide II: Ruin) are being sold as a box set.

R. A. Salvatore's Vector Prime is set 21 years after the events in the original Star Wars motion picture, when the heroes of the Rebel Alliance destroyed the Death Star. Since then, the New Republic has tried to maintain peace in the galaxy -- with mixed results. As the Advisory Council bicker among themselves, an ominous race of alien warriors has discretely entered the galactic rim bent on one thing: total and utter conquest. Although the Yuuzhan Vong are humanoid in appearance, all similarities end there. They are sadistic zealots obsessed with transforming planets into organic technology-based Yuuzhan Vong homeworlds -- and afflicting pain not only onto the infidels they kill but themselves as well.

In Michael A. Stackpole's Dark Tide duology, the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong intensifies, as heroes from the past -- like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and his wife, Leia -- battle the invaders alongside the next generation of Jedi Knights, which includes Han and Leia's teenage children Jaina, Jacen, and Anakin.

This beautifully packaged box set is a must-have for Star Wars enthusiasts of all ages, as well as a great introduction to the shelf-bending 21-book New Jedi Order series, which includes novels from bestselling authors like Salvatore, Stackpole, Walter Jon Williams, Troy Denning, Sean Williams, and Shane Dix.

    The New Republic begins before Emperor Palpatine dies. The Yuuzh

    The New Republic begins before Emperor Palpatine dies. The Yuuzhan Vong
    invasion takes place after the Thrawn Trilogy and before the Fate of the
    Jedi series. The Original Trilogy came out in the 1980s with Princess
    Leia Organa. The Prequel Trilogy was completed about 7 years ago with
    Anakin Skywalker. I know that there are Comic Books that depict the
    Legacy Era. Thanks.
