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!

a few laughs
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.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Star Wars. It continues the NJO series and finishes the Dark Tide duology.
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.
Corran Horn is the star of this novel.
This book showed the Jedi gaining some ground. it also showed the foolishness of trying to make premature peace with a warrior culture.
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.
