NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force—and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy.
 
Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key—risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je’daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved—and whose life she must now fear.

Praise for Into the Void
 
“In a story filled with adventure, intrigue, and great quotes, there’s a lot to like in this book. Tim Lebbon dives into his very first Star Wars story with a great deal of success. He manages to spin a tale that feels like Star Wars, but also feels different from other stories that have been told before. While there is some threat of system wide destruction, the point is never pushed to being ridiculous. The characters feel believable and provoke interest. The attention to the characters never takes away from the plot. There’s also a remarkable balance between world building, plot and character development, and action. When it comes down to it, Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void is just great storytelling.”—Roqoo Depot
 
“A nice, compact Star Wars tale that both acts as an introduction to the Dawn of the Jedi period and a standalone story.”—Club Jade
 
“A solidly enjoyable read . . . a nice addition to the Expanded Universe.”—Tosche Station
 
“A good solid Star Wars adventure story with heart.”—Knights’ Archive

Great

This book is an excellent tie-in to the comic book series. You do not need to even read the comics to read this book. The flashback element adds an awesome level to the story. It keeps you wondering the whole time. Good jump off point to the EU. May the force be with you!!!!

Worth a read

I thought the book was good loved the adventure well written... however there are a few things I did not like. I felt the build up was nice the apex was way to quick. This book could have opened a whole series about the Jedi world and gree technology and the journey in to the void. Just felt like there was a lot that could have been done. I hope someone picks up on one of these many topics.

The past never looked brighter

I was skeptical at first when I heard that there was to be a new series of SW books dealing with the past this far back in SW lore. I can say for certain I am hooked now and can not wait until the next book in this series comes out. Although I do hope the next one is as well written as Tim Lebbon has done here. I think this might have been the fastest I've read a SW book in awhile, it was that good.
