The planet of Alderaan is a peaceful one and Senator Bail Organa wants to keep it that way. But the presence of the Empire is starting to cast a shadow over their tranquility, as spies and traitors infiltrate the corridors of power.
Alderaan holds a secret, a secret on which the future existence of the Jedi depends. Under strict instructions from the emperor, double agent Ferus Olin must both uncover this secret and protect it. What he discovers raises dark questions from his own past and puts him in direct conflict with another former Jedi: the sinister Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader.

This story occurs between approximately six to seven months after the events of Revenge of the Sith (18 and a half years before the Battle of Yavin).

Review by Bones, UK, 2012:

"The penultimate volume of the Last of the Jedi series follows Ferus Olin to Alderaan where he discovers Leia, not knowing her true identity. Meanwhile, his companions fight to uncover mysteries on Coruscant.
"The story telling here is of a very similar quality to the previous books, with the constant interweaving of plots and characters creating a web of intrigue. Alderaan makes a great setting; the description of the idyllic scenery and the peaceful, near-utopian society are excellent. It is also great to catch a glimpse of Leia as a child, although it is a touch strange trying to relate the toddler here to the feisty young woman who insulted Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin in the same breath.
"For me, though, the best part of this book is seeing a much-loathed character finally receive their comeuppance. It has been far too long coming, but a certain scientist who has featured in all three of Watson's major series gets what's coming to her.
"Looking forward now to the conclusion of the series."
