After the ambitious yet ultimately disappointing New Jedi Order series, and the unnecessary and ridiculous Dark Nest trilogy, we finally get the kind of story that Star Wars is really made for. This novel has everything you could ask for: a looming conflict, political intrigue, intense action, questions of morality, and choices around which the fate of the galaxy are hinged. Even more impressive, and one of the reasons this book is so good, is the fact that the story is woven using elements that already existed in Star Wars lore. No new superweapons or technologies or alien threats here. This novel sits firmly among my favorite Star Wars novels.

This is the first installment of the Legacy of the Force series. It is the beginning of a new dark time for the characters in the Star Wars galaxy. It is an emotional tale that leaves the reader wanting more.

I was shocked to find out who would be the next person to walk down the dark path. Good way to start the series.

While 'Betrayal' is not my favorite Star Wars novel, it is indeed good enough for any fan to read. However, if someone who is not familiar enough with the 'Expanded Universe' of Star Wars, then they may want to begin with a novel more closely tied to the original trilogy. This novel is hardly tied to that era, as it is set 40 years after 'Return of the Jedi.' The New Republic has suffered great losses from the Vuuzhang Vong war, and is trying to recover. However, during this pivotal recovery time, Jacen Solo has begun to make choices that alternate from the instructed path of a Jedi. While the ending surprised me, it didn't surprise me as much as it could have if the title of the book hadn't been 'Betrayal.' However, with that said, the twist at the end of the novel is indeed semi-tragic and sets the Star Wars universe, far as it may be from the films at this point, on a new course. While this book was admittedly tough for me to get through in its first two-thirds, a final mission that Jacen, Han and Leia's son, his apprentice Ben Skywalker, son of Luke and Mara Jade, and a Jedi Knight named Nelani take are enough to keep me interested and act as a springboard to read the sequels of this series.

The birth of Darth Caedus, one of the best Sith Lords in the saga is shown exploring the reasons and logic behind Jacen Solo's decsion. Truly a worthwile read for any Star Wars fan.
