Product Description

From the Publisher

Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy. But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out physically to the Jedi twins. At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child -- Leia and Han's baby Anakin -- hidden on the planet Anoth. Meanwhile, Luke's former protégé Kyp Durron has pirated the deadly Sun Crusher on an apocalyptic mission of mass destruction, convinced he is fighting for a just cause. Hunting down the rogue warrior, Han must persuade Kyp to renounce his dark crusade and regain his lost honor. To do it, Kyp must take the Sun Crusher on a suicide mission against the awesome Death Star prototype -- a battle Han knows they may be unable to win... even with Luke Skywalker at their side! ®, (TM) and © 1995 Lucasfilm Ltd.

From AudioFile

In Champions of the Force, Leia rescues her youngest son from the planet Anoth. Han struggles with the Dark Side and destroys the Death Star prototype. Anthony Heald, the consummate reader, does an excellent rendition of this modern classic. His abilities elevate him above all others. Reproducing the character voices with great effectiveness, his voice, enhanced by sound effects, keeps the listener riveted. This action-filled, well-paced performance is worth listening to over and over. M.E.M.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The climactic novel of Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy is probably the best of the series, but in the end it is something of a disappointment.
The book picks up where Dark Apprentice leaves off, namely with yet another super weapon on the loose, this time in the hands of a would-be Jedi with revenge on his mind, while Luke lays in a helpless trance on Yavin 4. Meanwhile, a plot is in motion to kidnap Leia and Han's third child (Anakin Solo), the Republic finally gets around to moving against that hidden weapon's research facility from Book #1, and Admiral Daala continues to fail miserably in her Honor Harrington imitation (why does anyone in their right minds follow her?). All of these plot lines lead to that perennial Big Climactic Space Battle, which are a trademark of the Star Wars series. On the plus side, the action works well, the characters are much more interesting, and there?s actually a good deal of humor (more so, IMHO, than in either of the previous two books). However, on the negative side....
To give Anderson credit, he does manage to tie in all the threads he began in the previous two books, which is in some ways a marvel. But the ending feels rushed, and the novel loses much of its steam because of it. Going into the end of such a series, there should be a feeling of tension and excitement, a build-up to the final confrontations about to take place. There is little of that here, just a feeling that we're finally reaching a conclusion. Anderson does achieve his primary task of re-establishing the Jedi order, but once he has them back he doesn't really have much for them to do -- which is a shame, because that was supposedly the point of the series in the first place. At least he sets things up adequately for subsequent novels.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Han gets captured and enslaved on kessel. He meets Kip Durron and they help each other escape, but into a Maw of a forming Black Hole. Luke is trying to find Jedi for his academy, but a Dark Force spirit is threatening the students. In the finale, the student must fight the "ghost". This trilogy when combined with I, Jedi are important contributions to the SW Universe. We get Kessel, the Maw installation, Kip, adm Daala who reappears then disappears, Qui Xu, the first hint of the aftermath of Dark Empire, and more Wedge (now a critical character).
I had some problem with the story like: The spirit of a dead jedi having such tremedous power, the whole idea of the Suncrusher and the studip diversion of the blob race storyline. Unlike some, I feel that some of the darkhorse comics have made important contributions the SW Expanded Universe. Dark Empire was one of them.
For those of you who plan to read the New Jedi Order books, you'll find that Kevin J Anderson has made important contributions to SW including this trilogy and the young jedi books (the YJ books are surprisingly good).
