"How long can the Jedi remain in power?"
"How far will the Sith go to rule supreme?"
"What chance do both stand against Abeloth?"
As Luke and Ben Skywalker pursue the formidable dark-side being Abeloth, the Lost Tribe of the Sith is about to be sundered by an even greater power--which will thrust one Dark Lord into mortal conflict with his own flesh-and-blood.
On Coruscant, a political vacuum has left tensions at the boiling point, with factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Suddenly surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must struggle to keep the GA government from collapsing into anarchy.
The Jedi are committed to maintaining peace and ensuring just rule, but even they are not prepared to take on the combined threats of Sith power, a deposed dictator bent on galaxywide vengeance, and an entity of pure cunning and profound evil hungry to become a god.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-07-01)

As Luke Skywalker; his Jedi son, Ben; and the Sith apprentice -Vestara Khai travel the galaxy in search of the dark Force-wielding entity known as Aboleth, they explore the abandoned planets of the Lost Tribe of the Sith, bringing Vestara to a decision that will change her life forever. On Coruscant, the power vacuum left by the deposal of Natasi Daala once again awakens the old mistrust of the Jedi and exposes a conspiracy that shatters the foundations of the Galactic Alliance.

Golden's latest novel, the eighth installment in a nine-volume saga that takes place 40 years after the events of the Star Warsr trilogy, brings many plot threads to the point of no return. Characters grow stronger through their successes and failures, with hints of yet another generation born attuned to the Force.

Verdict: Golden's excellent storytelling captures the essence of the beloved space opera and should leave series followers eagerly anticipating the story's conclusion.

Book description

How long can the Jedi remain in power?

How far will the Sith go to rule supreme?

What chance do both stand against Abeloth?

As Luke and Ben Skywalker pursue the formidable dark-side being Abeloth, the Lost Tribe of the Sith is about to be sundered by an even greater power—which will thrust one Dark Lord into mortal conflict with his own flesh-and-blood.

On Coruscant, a political vacuum has left tensions at the boiling point, with factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Suddenly surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must struggle to keep the GA government from collapsing into anarchy.

The Jedi are committed to maintaining peace and ensuring just rule, but even they are not prepared to take on the combined threats of Sith power, a deposed dictator bent on galaxywide vengeance, and an entity of pure cunning and profound evil hungry to become a god.

Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Not bad, not great. This is the latest book in a so-so series. I feel that the story has stagnated somewhat. So far Abeloth has only been a threat to people who have gone after her. When is she going to become a threat to the rest of the galaxy? 08/28/2011
