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.

A Gripping, Galactic Adventure!
First let me say in the spirit of a little kid, "Simply Awesome" and "Thank-you"! Christie Golden has mastered her craft in this absolutely stellar offering. Ms. Golden has chronicled another swashbuckling tale and proven once again that she is one of our Galaxy's Three "Literary" Musketeers along with Aaron Allston and Troy Denning. The voice work and character recognition was stunning. The audio and sound effect layering were just right and never overshadowed or upstaged the dialog. With my headphones on and lights out; this tale transported me back a "long, long, time ago", only this time the galaxy was not "far, far, away"; it was in my mind. What a fun way to escape the rigors of the day and just be a "scoundrel" along with Han, Leia, Luke, the "not-so-younglings", and the whole Lucas tribe. Really, really, great! A must buy!
I love anything star wars, but this book was awesome. Ending was very sad though :(
