Star Wars Fate of the Jedi #7: Conviction by Aaron Allston

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The Jedi have struck a blow against tyranny. Can they strike down ultimate evil?

 
Chief of State Natasi Daala has been overthrown, and the Jedi Order has taken control of the Galactic Alliance. But while the new governors dismantle Daala’s draconian regime, forces still loyal to the deposed official are mobilizing a counterstrike. And even the Jedi’s new authority may not be enough to save Tahiri Veila, the former Jedi Knight and onetime Sith apprentice convicted of treason for the killing of Galactic Alliance officer Gilad Pellaeon.
 
Meanwhile, Luke and Ben Skywalker are relentlessly pursuing Abeloth, the powerful dark-side entity bent on ruling the galaxy. But as they corner their monstrous quarry on the planet Nam Chorios, the two lone Jedi must also face the fury of the Sith death squadron bearing down on them. And when Abeloth turns the tables with an insidious ambush, the Skywalkers’ quest threatens to become a suicide mission.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Your lack of faith is disturbing.... star wars is science fiction not romance, reading this book now then two more in the fate of the jedi series. This has not been a disapointing series and cant wait to find out if vestara and ben will wind up together or against each other

This particular volume of the Fate of the Jedi series answered a few of the larger questions and will keep the reader interested in what is going on. I particularly like the relationship between Han and his granddaughter, and there was more of it in this one than the last one. I cannot wait until the next one comes out.

Over forty years after A New Hope, on Coruscant the ruthless regime of the Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala ends; the Jedi Knights and their allies take charge (see Fate of the Jedi #6 Vortex by Troy Denning). While the Jedi leadership including grandparents Han and Leila Solo put together a new government, Daala supporters begin a counterinsurgency. They demand the execution of former Jedi and Sith Tahiri Veila convicted of killing Galactic Alliance officer Gilad Pellaeon; at Armand Isard Maximum Correctional Facility she fights the other convicts like the Hutt and the Wookie. Near Almania, traveling on the Jade Shadow, Luke and Ben Skywalker accompanied by Sith apprentice Vestara Khai pursue Abeloth. At Meliflar Station they witness first hand the dark power of Abeloth who is stronger and much darker than the Sith. The pursuit continues until the two Jedi and the Sith trap their adversary on Nam Chorios. As they deploy their final assault against this monster, a Sith death squadron attacks the Skywalkers at the same Abeloth begins her countermeasure. Aaron Allston returns to the Fate of the Jedi (see Outcast and Backlash) as the two prime subplots of this saga continues. On Coruscant, the Jedi and their allies try to bring back the "new hope" they fostered four decades ago but Daala has loyal backers who prefer her iron fisted regime over the Force. At the same time the Skywalker team faces peril from the Sith while lurking for them is the vile Abeloth. Although an action-packed transition book to the final arc of this series as a new alliance forms, Star War fans who have read the previous Fate of the Jedi entries will relish this tale while Ascension and Apocalypse awaits readers.

Took me awhile to finish this one. It was actually interesting towards the end of the book, but it just took awhile to get there. The outcome of the Luke/Ben/Vestara mission was very unsatisfactory considering how much of the book was spent setting up this major plot point. The book even points this out. This book did contain some important character resolutions and appearances for this series and for the EU in general. Daala and Tahiri both find themselves in very different positions compared to where they were at the beginning of this series. We get an appearance from Boba Fett, or do we? Oh yeah we do, but Boba is playing politics now and has to wear fake costumes and such. After the Legacy series he really did not need to come back. Callista makes an important appearance in this novel as well. Of the three authors of this series, Aaron Allston always does the best. Allston does well writing characters like C-3PO and Allana in this book, something other authors seem to have trouble doing. He avoids writing Allana into another kidnapping scenario and shows her following her destiny that was foreshadowed in the last series. While she played an important role that showed her potential as a powerful force user it would have been good to see her stand on her own a little more, and not have to have others lend a helping hand. I must have missed what happened to Vestara after the final confrontation, but I suppose you find out in the next book. I would rather find out what happened to her at the end of this book than Tahiri.

Now, you have learned enough for now. Take this, it is an enhancer for your lightsaber. *Hands you a small white crystal.* This is a Firaxxan Sharktooth, they give off an aura that causes the blade to do more damage.
