The Jedi Order is in crisis. The late Jacen Solo’s shocking transformation into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who wield the Force for good: Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable and dangerous psychosis, criminal charges have driven Luke Skywalker into self-imposed exile, and power-hungry Chief of State Natasi Daala is exploiting anti-Jedi sentiment to undermine the Order’s influence within the Galactic Alliance. Forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind Jacen’s fall to the dark side–and to learn what’s turning peaceful Jedi into raving lunatics. But finding answers will mean venturing into the mind-bending space of the Kathol Rift and bargaining with an alien species as likely to destroy outsiders as deal with them. Still, there is no other choice and no time to lose, as the catastrophic events on Coruscant continue to escalate. Stricken by the same violent dementia that infected her brother, Valin, Jedi Knight Jysella Horn faces an equally grim fate after her capture by Natasi Daala’s police. And when Han and Leia Solo narrowly foil another deranged Jedi bent on deadly destruction, even acting Jedi Grand Master Kenth Hamner appears willing to bow to Daala’s iron will–at the expense of the Jedi Order.But an even greater threat is looming. Millennia in the past, a Sith starship crashed on an unknown low-tech planet, leaving the survivors stranded. Over the generations, their numbers have grown, the ways of the dark side have been nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way, a name whispered to them through the Force: Skywalker.From the Hardcover edition.

Series: Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi (#2)
Solid follow up to the previous entry in the Fate Of The Jedi series. Most of the previous plotlines are continued in this one, the main one being Luke and Ben continuing their search for answers to Jacen's conversion to evil. Han and Leia are on Coruscant as the Jedi ever increasingly become exiled...
Probably one of the better Star Wars books I've ever read, and no surprise, it's written by Christie Golden. Even though I find her writing can be a bit hokey sometimes, I'm generally a fan of hers. And since this is a Star Wars novel, so I'm not going to come down hard. I have to say this was a goo...
What a terrific disappointment from the first book in the series. This book feels like a placeholder in the story. There are minor developments, but other than that, seems like a direct derivation from the previous book by Aaron Allston. Plot-wise, there are almost no new developments beyond the int...
Jysella Horn [Corin and Mirax's daughter] goes nutso. More politic'ing between the Jedi and the GA. Luke and Ben trace Jacen's path of travels. And Ship [the sith ship] finds the Sith World and starts training them. Opening things up for another fall of the Jedi and ascendancy of Sith. Kind of sad...
