Legacy of the Force - the multibook Star Wars epic that dares to go where only the New Jedi Order has dared to go before! This ninth and final novel in the series concludes the tale of Jacen Solo's journey to the dark side.
Troy Denning is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Star Wars- Tatooine Ghost, Star Wars- The New Jedi Order- Star by Star, as well as Waterdeep (under the pseudonym Richard Awlinson) and ineteen other novels, including Pages of Pain, Beyond the High Road, and The Summoning. His most recent Star Wars novels are the three books of the trilogy, Star Wars- Dark Nest. A former game esigner and editor, he enjoys hiking,mountain climbing, judo, and any sport that involves going fast with boards strapped to his feet. He lives in southern Wisconsin with his wife, Andria.
Adult/High School-Although this book is the conclusion to the series, it is engaging for anyone familiar with the original Star Wars films. Readers become reacquainted with familiar characters such as Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Han Solo, and Princess Leia. The story picks up where Karen Traviss's Revelation (Del Rey, 2008) leaves off, with Jaina Solo, daughter of Han and Leia Solo, training alongside Boba Fett in preparation for the greatest battle of her life; Jaina is being sent to destroy Darth Caedus, the Sith who was once known as Jacen Solo, her twin brother. As she pursues him across the galaxy, Jaina and her family struggle to separate the Jedi warrior they knew as Jacen from the Dark Lord that he has become. The novel follows the battle between the Jedi and the Galactic Alliance from the perspectives of Jaina; Jacen; and their cousin, Ben Skywalker, creating a fusion of plots dealing with political dispute, inner struggles, and warfare. This is an entertaining and quick read, although the ending seems to wrap up prematurely with several plotlines left unanswered, presumably to be explored in a future series.-Kelliann Bogan, Colby-Sawyer College, New London, NH Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
