The Yuuzhan Vong campaign of terror and violence escalates to deadly new heights. They have unleashed a fearsome creature, capable of hunting and killing the galaxy's last hope: Luke Skywalker's order of Jedi Knights. Leia Organa Solo has been given a terrible ultimatum: reveal the location of the hidden Jedi base, or watch helplessly as millions of refugee ships are destroyed.
The Jedi strike back with a daring plan crafted by young Anakin Solo -- an elite team of Jedi Knights will allow themselves to be taken into the Yuuzhan Vong fold as prisoners, and from there, they hope to sabotage the invader's plans of conquest. The Solo children, Anakin, Jacen and Jaina, spearhead this dangerous mission, filled with unspeakable risk. Is the vanquishing of a murderous foe worth the temptation of the dark side?

The paperback version also includes a copy of the e-book Recovery by Troy Denning.

This story occurs approximately 27 years after the Battle of Yavin.

Review by James Lee, Scotland, 2010:

"I loved this book and think it's the best one in the saga from Jaina being broken during the torture, Anakin and Jacen constantly at loggerheads, and the mission to Myrkr to destroy the voxyn queen. Anakin was fast becoming the strongest Jedi knight but some things just don't work out in wars and he died leading the mission and Jacen was captured.
"This book marks the half way point in the New Jedi Order series and you feel that killing the
voxyn may be the turning point but with the loss of Anakin Solo so soon after Chewie and on the back of many other Jedi deaths, how will Luke keep his family and the Jedi Order together? and what of Jacen solo....."

Rating: 5 / 5
