Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Dark Tide II: Ruin

The alien Yuuzhan Vong have launched an attack on the worlds of the Outer Rim. They are merciless and they stand utterly outside the Force. Even the Jedi are rendered helpless by this impervious foe, and their solidarity has begun to unravel. While Luke struggles to keep the Jedi together, Knights Jacen Solo and Corran Horn set off on a reconnaissance mission to the planet Garqi. There they uncover a secret that might be used to undermine the enemy - if only they can stay alive long enough to use it!

Publisher's Summary

The alien Yuuzhan Vong have launched an attack on the worlds of the Outer Rim. They are merciless, without regard for life, and they stand utterly outside the Force. Their ever-changing tactics stump the New Republic military. Even the Jedi, once the greatest guardians of peace in the galaxy, are rendered helpless by this impervious foe, and their solidarity has begun to unravel.

While Luke struggles to keep the Jedi together, Knights Jacen Solo and Corran Horn set off on a reconnaissance mission to the planet Garqi, an occupied world. There, at last, they uncover a secret that might be used to undermine the enemy - if only they can stay alive long enough to use it!

    I like Star Wars, Foundation series, Redwall Series, Bloody Jack series, and westerns for fiction. In nonfiction, I like books about Catholic theology, American history and government, and economics.

    "Fairly good story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Star Wars. It continues the NJO series and finishes the Dark Tide duology.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have changed the wrap-up after the climax of the story. The wrap-up as written was unsatisfying, and disappointing after the good ending of the climax.


    Which character – as performed by Anthony Heald – was your favorite?

    Corran Horn is the star of this novel.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book showed the Jedi gaining some ground. it also showed the foolishness of trying to make premature peace with a warrior culture.


    Any additional comments?

    SPOILER ALERT:

    I thought the introduction of the spores was an ingenious way to give the New Republic an upper hand over the Vong, but this storyline just dies in this novel. I also thought it strange that Corran Horn defeats his enemy, yet instead of getting a hero's welcome he is blamed for the Vong's deceit. I found this unsatisfying.
