In a stunning turn of
events, Luke Skywalker and his son, Ben, joined forces
with members of the Sith armada sent to kill them and
turned their combined might against the monstrous being
Abeloth, whose power was causing young Jedi Knights to
go seemingly insane. But with Abeloth gone and the
Knights sane again, the Sith reverted to form, making a
treacherous attempt on Luke's life.
Luke and Ben have no time for retaliation. A new and
even more insidious threat is rising, one that endangers
not only the Jedi but the entire Galactic Alliance.
Unless the Skywalkers survive to sound the alarm and to
pass along the secrets they have learned about Abeloth
and the Sith, the galaxy will suffer as it has never
suffered before. But the reinforcements they need remain
grounded on Coruscant, where the political battle of
wills between the Jedi Council and Galactic Alliance
Chief of State Natasi Daala has reached a boiling point.
Now Luke and Ben must go on the run, taking along the
inscrutable and dangerous Sith apprentice Vestara Khai.
With a host of Sith warriors in hot pursuit, the
Skywalkers soon find themselves trapped on the moon
Pydyr, caught between their former allies and a mob of
angry Fallanassi. A new truce may be their only hope.
But can a Sith ever be trusted?
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!
