You can’t help but feel that the book stands as filler in the series. The plague on Pydyr provides another event for Luke to engage in, but does little to forward the overall plot. Likewise the lengthy trial may turn some readers off. So, it’s a competently written book, which nudges the overall plot forward.

Synopsis

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

Jedi and Sith fight side by side against an even greater foe.
But how long can enemies remain allies?
And how high is the price of betrayal?
 
In a stunning turn of events, Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben, joined forces with the Sith armada sent to kill them—and used their combined might against the monstrous being Abeloth. But when the wounded creature escapes, the fragile armistice crumbles, and hostilities resume with the attempted assassination of Luke.

On the hunt for Abeloth and on the run from the Sith, Luke and Ben find themselves trapped by a mob of angry Force adepts who care little for the difference between light side and dark side.

With the Jedi’s most famous father-and-son team outnumbered and outgunned, the countdown to galactic disaster has begun—and time is running out.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

An answer or two to a few of the mysteries would be nice. Not that it isn't an intriguing saga of the Expanded Universe.

...the book practically defines the expression déjà vu. So while it’s true that Vortex does a far better job of progressing plotlines, the trouble is that many of them are simply repackaged “developments” from earlier books...
