As the bloodied and weary galaxy faces battle once more, the Jedi take on the formidable task of bringing the last of the Empire into the light.
From the ashes of the New Republic, torn to shreds by the savage Yuuzhan Vong forces, the newly formed Galactic Alliance has risen, determined to bring peace to the entire galaxy. But first the Yuuzhan Vong must be contained once and for all. And so Luke Skywalker seeks a world long lost to legend: Zonama Sekot, a sentient planet believed to have repelled an invasion by the Yuuzhan Vong decades ago. Deciphering the enigmatic secrets of Zonama Sekot just might turn the tide of a relentless war.
Aboard the Jade Shadow, Luke, his wife Mara, Jacen Solo, and other Jedi head off into the Unknown Regions, where rumors and clues suggest Zonama Sekot might be found. Yet the mission has barely begun when the searchers stumble into a horrific battle. The Imperial Remnant, in retreat from the mighty Yuuzhan Vong, is about to be destroyed. It would seem those aboard the Jade Shadow have little choice but to leave the Empire to its fate. But these are no ordinary space travelers - they are Jedi.

"Jonathan Davis' voice lends itself to a flawless expression of the alien Jedi, the entire Skywalker clan, the Yuuzhan Vong, and a host of other alien beings." (AudioFile)
i am a Visually Impaired person. I get alot of books recorded from the Library of congress. When they don't have a book I use Audible. The problem is when you go from an abridged to an unabridged novel you miss part of the story, and you end up lost in some cases. This is a well written saga. It is star Wars for Adults, but they need to record an unabridged version. If they did I would definitely purchase all the novels.
I understand that an Abridged version will mean that some of the story is cut. now I thought that would mean certain sentences or descriptions would be cut not entire storylines. two out of the three story lines were just completely scrapped. and they were good storylines as well. I feel bad for anyone that purchases this without reading the book first because the book has so much more great story and awesome writing.
