The New York Times bestselling Star Wars series The New Jedi Order enthralls readers with its epic drama and thrilling adventure. Now readers will pierce the very heart of darkness. . . .
It is a solemn time for the New Republic, as the merciless Yuuzhan Vong continue their campaign of destruction. The brutal enemy has unleashed a savage creature capable of finding—and killing—Jedi Knights. And now Leia Organa Solo faces a terrible ultimatum. If the location of the secret Jedi base is not revealed within one week, the Yuuzhan Vong will blast millions of refugee ships into oblivion.
As the battered but still unbroken Jedi scramble to deal with the newest onslaught, Leia’s son Anakin lays out a daring plan. He will lead a Jedi strike force into the heart of enemy territory in order to sabotage the Yuuzhan Vong’s deadliest weapons. There, with his brother and sister at his side, he will come face-to-face with his destiny—as the New Republic, still fighting the good fight, will come face-to-face with theirs. . . .
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!
A High (and Low) Point for the NJO
“Star by Star” stands out amongst the New Jedi Order saga as one of its brightest points. Deep, thoughtful, well-written, with numerous twists and turns. This epic tale marks the low point for our heroes where everything seems lost. This is the closest to capturing the feel and significance of Empire Strikes Back that the NJO gets, and marks a massive turning point in this saga.
Whether you are a massive Star Wars fan exploring the discarded Legends continuity, or fiercely loyal to the old Expanded Universe, “Star by Star” is a must-have.
If you like “Star by Star,” I would recommend the following New Jedi Order novels:
•“Vector Prime” by R.A. Salvatore
•The “Dark Tide” duology by Michael Stackpole
•“Balance Point” by Kathy Tyers
•The “Edge of Victory” duology by Greg Keyes
•The “Enemy Lines” duology by Aaron Allston
•”Traitor” by Matthew Stover
•“Destiny’s Way” by Walter Jon Williams
•“The Unifying Force” by James Luceno
(You can Wookiepedia the plots and characters of the rest.)
Best I've read so far!
I've read 10 books from the NEW JEDI ORDER era and this is by far the best! Highly recommended if you are a fan of SW.
One of the best Star Wars books, period. Too many spoilers to say anything else. Read the New Jedi Order.
