In a shocking move, Chief of State Natasi Daala orders the arrest of Luke Skywalker for failing to prevent Jacen Solo's turn to the dark side and his subsequent reign of terror as a Sith Lord. But it's only the first blow in an anti-Jedi backlash fueled by a hostile government and suspicious public. When Jedi Knight Valin Horn, scion of a politically influential family, suffers a mysterious psychotic break and becomes a dangerous fugitive, the Jedi become the target of a media-driven witch hunt. Facing conviction on the damning charges, Luke must strike a bargain with the calculating Daala: his freedom in exchange for his exile from Coruscant and from the Jedi Order.
Though forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is determined to keep history from being repeated. With his son, Ben, at his side, Luke sets out to unravel the shocking truth behind Jacen Solo's corruption and downfall. But the secrets he uncovers among the enigmatic Force mystics of the distant world Dorin may bring his quest and life as he knows it to a sudden end. And all the while, another Jedi Knight, consumed by the same madness as Valin Horn, is headed for Coruscant on a fearsome mission that could doom the Jedi Order and devastate the entire galaxy.

The story was too predictable. I did not enjoy it all. The only thing I liked was the end.
No. Writing style was boring and unimaginative.
The story was narrated well, but the voices were to far from the original characters that I found myself not buying into the story because of it.
The political drama involved was overwhelming and brought the story down. Not enough action for a Star Wars novel I thought.
Title says it all, Mark does an excellent job.
Not the best Star Wars story ever but it was good.
A better story.
The solo grandchild
This book could have been ok, but there were very long stretches of the book that were irrelevant.
Yes, it was worth the listen and I am looking for ward to Book2
Mark Thomson, for me,has become the voice of Star Wars. Since there were no real high or lows tat come to mind I will credit him with another good performance.
Yes and as always, well done.
I hate spiders. You will understand if you hear it.
Buying book 2 now.
1st book is set up & ok. The series as a hole is surpurb. A must read for action adventure fans. Talks alot about the Force & has the best fight scens :]
Glad to finally see unabridged books from star wars. Would love to see them go back and redo all the abridged books and make unabridged versions. This is a good start to the series and another great job by Marc Thompson.
Love reading, Love listening, Love learning.
This series captivated the imagination and senses that caused me to first enjoy Star Wars epics originally. I thouroughly enjoyed the entire series. Thank you.
I enjoyed getting to know several characters and the many different relationships of each.
I suppose one of my favorite characters is Vestara Khai
