Repercussions from the dark side’s fatal seduction of Jacen Solo and the mysterious plague of madness afflicting young Jedi continue to wreak havoc galaxy-wide. Luke and Ben Skywalker are in pursuit of the now masterless Sith apprentice Vestara Khai. It is a chase that leads to the forbidding planet Dathomir.
Meanwhile, Han and Leia Solo are on their own desperate mission, shuttling madness-stricken Jedi from Coruscant to safe haven in the Transitory Mists—and beyond the grasp of Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala. But the bold maneuver only intensifies Daala’s fury.
Yet no greater threat exists than that which still waits in the depths of the distant Maw Cluster: A being of pure, ravenous dark-side energy named Abeloth calls out across the stars to Jedi and Sith alike. For some it may be the ultimate source of answers crucial to their survival. For others it could be the ultimate weapon of conquest. But for all, it is a game-changing—and life-altering—encounter and a tactical gambit with unimaginable consequences.

Fate of the jedi is such a great story
Force-filled, far-flying fun
Ever since my father first rented me a beaten old copy of "A New Hope" on VHS when I was eight years old, I've been a fan of the Star Wars saga. While the various book extensions of the franchise tend to be a grab bag, the "Fate of the Jedi" series is a solid addition to the fictional universe, and "Backlash" is a fine fourth volume. Allston delivers the goods, and Marc Thompson's narration is excellent, complete with truly impressive renditions of fan favorite characters like Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and C-3PO.
As a side note, long time followers of Star Wars fiction who are familiar with the novel "The Courtship of Princess Leia" will find a familiar locale playing a pivotal role in this episode. Unexpected and extremely welcome!
