Publisher's Summary

Chief of State Natasi Daala has been overthrown, and the Jedi Order has taken control of the Galactic Alliance. But while the new governors dismantle Daala's draconian regime, forces still loyal to the deposed official are mobilizing a counterstrike. And even the Jedi's new authority may not be enough to save Tahiri Veila, the former Jedi Knight and onetime Sith apprentice convicted of treason for the killing of Galactic Alliance officer Gilad Pellaeon.

Meanwhile, Luke and Ben Skywalker are relentlessly pursuing Abeloth, the powerful dark-side entity bent on ruling the galaxy. But as they corner their monstrous quarry on the planet Nam Chorios, the two lone Jedi must also face the fury of the Sith death squadron bearing down on them. And when Abeloth turns the tables with an insidious ambush, the Skywalkers' quest threatens to become a suicide mission.

You know who you are...

So I’ve read and listened to a large swath of the Star Wars cannon, 60 odd books. I love every title. So my thoughts and opinions are jaded by my feelings for this universe. But if you’re into Luke Skywalker and Jedi you can’t go wrong with the Fate series.

The story continues...Riveting!

“Conviction” is exciting, intriguing, and very entertaining. It is very well written and the audio narration by Marc Thompson is awesome as always.

Conviction

This book is not as adventurous as other novels in this series. It does tie stories together. Of course with one book to go, I will listen to last one too

the real ben please stand up

if it does not say Legends in front of it it's not worth reading or listening to. What Disney did was take truly amazing series good movies and books that followed up the series perfectly and destroyed it. so if you really want to know the true Star Wars story I go back and start at original thrawn trilogy. I have to admit the creator of that amazing trilogy has done an amazing job with his new books regardless. Marc Thompson hands down the greatest Star Wars narrator. only person that can even equal him is Jonathan Davis and Jeff Gurner.

Full series review. So SPOILERS

I know I’m jaded but....

The Fate of the Jedi series delivers on everything you’d expect from a great story. Luke Skywalker along with his son Ben, set out to solve a simple mystery. Why did Jacen fall? And then....so much greatness happens. EU threads I’d forgotten about (Calista for one) are resolved in a fluid and natural way. Every single character has a unique personality (flaws and all). My favourite character Saba Sebatyne gets to shine in this series. Although she’s not the only one. Almost every EU character gets a role. (The ones they miss have Mercy Kill). And then there is Aboloth. The freaking scariest Star Wars villain ever. And every time I read the chapter in Apocalypse that explains her relationship to the Father Son and Daughter (from the Clone Wars Mortis trilogy) gives me chills every damn time. And Rynar Thul’s sacrifice. Damn. What a story.

PS Disney? I’d buy an unbridged version of EVERY Legends novel. That’s just $$$$$$$$ for you. You have the rights. Why not?

Disney ruined the sequel

Sad that I’ll never get to read sword of the Jedi, as Disney took it away from us all.

One of my fav books in this series.

Interesting character developments and moves at a quicker pace than some of the other fate of the Jedi books. Enjoyed references to older books I must have read 20 years ago. Worth a shot.

Keeps building

Enjoy the how they build these stories. Enjoy the journey Vestarar makes and seeing the characters arc.
Typical EU story keeps building to some chaotic conclusion, enjoying them all so far
