Overview

Star Wars The Dark Nest #3: The Swarm War by Troy Denning

In the explosive conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy, Luke Skywalker summons the heroes of the New Jedi Order from near and far, as the Star Wars galaxy teeters on the edge of eternal war. Yet even the combined powers of the formidable Jedi may not be enough to vanquish the deadly perils confronting them.

The Chiss-Killik border war is threatening to engulf the entire galaxy and raising the awful specter of Killiks sweeping across space to absorb all living creatures into a single hive mind. The only hope for peace lies with the Jedi–and only if they can not only end the bloodshed between two fierce enemies but also combat the insidious evil spread by the elusive Dark Nest and its unseen queen.

Leia’s newly acquired Jedi skills will be put to the ultimate test in the coming life-and-death battle. As for Luke, he will have to prove, in a lightning display of Force strength and swordplay, that he is– beyond a shadow of a doubt–the greatest Jedi Master in the galaxy.

The story was good enough but it just didn't catch my interest this time. I like most of the star wars titles but for me I think they ended to broad. I enjoyed this with all characters they usually don't mention, the plot itself I thought was good in how it kept surprising you again and again. People who have read star wars before will like this, but those who haven't really shouldn't.

In Star Wars Dark Nest III: The Swarm War we have the dramatic conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy where the Killik Crisis and the split in the Jedi Order are dealt with. Both of these situations had been left on a cliffhanger from The Unseen Queen and both in my opinion are nicely resolved in The Swarm War, even though some things are left deliberately open as to lead into the Legacy of the Force series. However this was not detrimental to my enjoyment of the book or the trilogy overall. The return of Luke Skywalker to the Jedi Order after being out of contact during The Unseen Queen sees him deal with how the half Jedi/half Galactic Alliance Advisory Council had been used by the Chief of State Cal Omas to drive a wedge in the Order. Lukes actions result in him taking sole leadership of the Order for the duration of the Killik crisis and after its conclusion there is the prospect of an all Jedi Council with a lot more authority over the Order to be seen in future books unlike the less formal Masters' Councils seen earlier in the Trilogy. The resolution of the Killik Crisis is a satisfying plan that calls for great acts of courage from all in the Jedi Order and in the Galactic Federation of Free Alliance military. The Swarm War as with the first two entries of the trilogy has very good depictions of both the major characters and the smaller bit parts. The action is of a high level of quality with some excellent confrontations for Luke, Leia, Han and Co. to endure and there were also some very funny moments scattered throughout the book. Particularly the parts involving Jedi Master Saba Sebatyne. There were also as with the first two installements a number of instances when events from Revenge of the Sith are revealed to the Skywalker/Solos and as has been the case before these are woven into the Killik storyline and in my opinion do not come across as forced. I found The Swarm War and the Dark Nest trilogy in general to be an excellent adventure in the post Yuuzhan Vong War galaxy showing the Jedi regain some of their much needed moral centre as well as wetting my appetite tremendously for the Legacy of the Force series.

Awsome read! The ending felt a little rushed, but it was an awsome book. Jacen, Jaina, and Zekk get larger parts, which is good. But Tenel Ka, Ben, and Kyle Katarn get smaller parts. Raynar is awsome, as is Luke. Great war book. I loved it!

This was a great conclusion to the Dark Nest Trilogy. Luke Skywalker proves that he is the true Grand Master of the Jedi Order. Luke is on his way to becoming the next Yoda (although not as long-living, small, or green! LOL!) He was always my favorite Jedi and character!
