Overview

Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy. But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out physically to the Jedi twins. At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child -- Leia and Han's baby Anakin -- hidden on the planet Anoth. Meanwhile, Luke's former protÚgÚ Kyp Durron has pirated the deadly Sun Crusher on an apocalyptic mission of mass destruction, convinced he is fighting for a just cause. Hunting down the rogue warrior, Han must persuade Kyp to renounce his dark crusade and regain his lost honor. To do it, Kyp must take the Sun Crusher on a suicide mission against the awesome Death Star prototype -- a battle Han knows they may be unable to win... even with Luke Skywalker at their side!

    A fitting end to the series but not as long as you might think.

    The story steadily ties up all of the loose ends from the second book in the series, but the actual book is not very long. The last tird of the book has little sectiosn about other books in the Star wars series. However, this is a well written story and worth reading.

    An great finale to an excellent trilogy

    A great read!
    I have been a fan of the Star Wars saga since my childhood but had no idea that the saga continued. Having recently discovered the expanded Star Wars universe I began reading every Star Wars novel written by Timothy Zahn. I quickly exhausted the current supply and found myself looking for a new author. Kevin Anderson did not disappoint, I was very pleased to find a very well developed storyline with familiar characters and some new ones as well. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in following the continued saga beyond Return of the Jedi.

    Champions Of The Force Is Definitely A Good Grand Finale!!!!!!! 

    Champions Of The Force Is Definitely A Good Grand Finale!!!!!!! 

    In my opinion, Star Wars Champions Of The Force is the best of the trilogy. It ends very well and feels like Star Wars ought to.

    Kevin J. Anderson has also done another series with his wife, Rebecca Moesta. The series is called Star Wars Young Jedi Knights, which is for young adults and is my favorite series of all the Star Wars books I've read.

    I don't know why this book is so heavily criticized but it's one of my all time favorites (although it dosen't rank quite as high as Young Jedi Knights). I have always found Kevin J. Anderson's work appealing; there's something about his style that makes his Star Wars books impossible for me to put down. And so, despite what others may say, I'm a definite fan of this masterpiece and I highly recommend it.
