The alien Yuuzhan Vong have launched an attack on the worlds of the Outer Rim. They are merciless, without regard for life - and they stand utterly outside the Force. Their ever-changing tactics stump the New Republic military. Even the Jedi, once the greatest guardians of peace in the galaxy, are rendered helpless by this impervious foe - and their solidarity has begun to unravel.
While Luke struggles to keep the Jedi together, Knights Jacen Solo and Corran Horn set off on a reconnaissance mission to the planet Garqi, an occupied world. There, at last, they uncover a secret that might be used to undermine the enemy - if only they can stay alive long enough to use it!
Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Dark Tide Two
Star Wars The New Jedi Order Dark Tide II: Ruin is much the same as Dark Tide 1. Again, the author delivers a pretty good Star Wars tale with plenty of action (including good X-wing action as in his X-wing novels), but all in all the story feels a little too much like the first Dark Tide. Things move slow, and though there is a decent finale, it's not like the last duel between Corran Horn and the Yuuzhan Vong in the previous volume, which I found to be quite exciting after the otherwise slow moving plot. Over all, like the first, this novel is a pretty easy read and is a worthy addition to the NJO series.
