The seventh novel in a latest epic story arc for fans of the Legacy of the Force series, the Dark Lords of the Sith, and the most popular characters in Star Wars, Luke, Han, and Leia!
AARON ALLSTON was an editor of The Space Gamer magazine, which won the H. G. Wells Award for Best Role-Playing Magazine in 1982. Allston later became a freelance game designer, working for Hero Games and Dungeons & Dragons publisher TSR. He is one of the most popular Star Wars authors.
The exiled Luke Skywalker, his Jedi son, Ben, and Sith apprentice Vestara Khai continue their precarious alliance as they track down the Force-wielding entity known as Abeloth, convinced it is responsible for the attacks of madness affecting Jedi throughout the galaxy. On the planet Coruscant, Leia and Han Solo concentrate on the political and tactical problems affecting the discredited Jedi Order, following paths that lead them to the seat of the Republic's power. The seventh installment in the nine-volume "Fate of the Jedi" series (and the first in a "mini-trilogy" that rounds out the series) takes the action into the heart of the Republic as a Jedi knight is tried for murder and expands the story to the hostile planet Klatooine as it becomes the staging ground for a long-awaited confrontation that could decide the fate of those whose destinies rely on the Force. VERDICT One of three authors (along with Christie Golden and Troy Denning) contributing to the latest series in the popular and growing opus of Star Warsr novels, Allston (Outcast; Backlash) remains true to the spirit of the characters, combining wry humor and passionate conviction with splendidly depicted action scenes.
