I have not wrote any reviews for the New Jedi Order, but after reading a bunch of reviews for Dark Journey I figured I would voice my opinion.

Just a little back story, I read Vector Prime years ago when it was first released, and even though I really enjoyed it I did not continue the series. This summer I was cleaning out my garage and found a box full of boxs, and there was Vector Prime, I read it again and have read every NJO book in order. I have just completed Dark Journey and will be starting Rebel Dream Enenmy Lines #1 this evening.

Theres been mixed reviews about many of the books in this series (I only read reviews AFTER I have completed the novel) and in my opinion you have to look at the series as a whole not individual books.

Dark Journey to me is a palate cleanser, it was a light read, which I found was a perfect follow up to the intensity and ferocity of Star by Star. It pretty much followed on story line opposed to jumping between multiple arcs. Is it the best book in the series....no, but what it did for me was allow me to catch my breath and clear my head after Star by Star and its brutality (and awesomeness).

The beauty of this series is that each novel is unique, they have their own style and pacing, and this is why I like that multiple authors are involved opposed to one writter taking the helm. I believe in order to review a book in this series you need to look at the series as a whole, and the book that it follows. Everyone will not agree and thats ok, thats the beauty of opinion.

With the previous book of the New Jedi Order series, Star by Star creating so much havok in the Star Wars Universe, Dark Journey is a welcome reprieve from the massive undertakings described in Troy Denning's novel.
Written mostly from Jaina's perspective, but allowing for Kyp, Jag, Tenel Ka and Lowie to also develop, the novel basically tells of Jaina's wandering towards the dark side after the loss of both her brothers. Becoming nearly obsessed with playing out the role of Yun-Harla the Yuuzhan Vong goddess of trickery, she continually baffles Harrar, the Warmaster's favorite priest, and the commander of Harrar's naval force.
Though the characterization of Jaina was better than most, it still seemed a bit construed and misguided at times, and for a book with a very obvious central character (much like Jacen's, Traitor, by Matthew Stover) it seemed to meander through too many other character's own personal motives. In the end though, Jaina's travels seem well documented, and add a good focusing point for other characters as well, most importantly Kyp and Jag Fel.
Extra points go to Elaine Cunningham for finally pointing out what most readers of the Young Jedi Knights series knew all along - Tenel Ka and Jacen were in love and are meant to be together. I personally enjoyed seeing Lowie and Tenel Ka recieve some more important roles, which they deserved after Kevin J. Anderson's great portrayal of them in the Young Jedi Knights books.
All in all not a bad book by any stretch, though not a great one either.
3.5/5

Don't get me started on how horrible this book was. I was appalled that this could even carry the title "New Jedi Order." This is the worst book in the entire New Jedi Order series. It was all about Jaina and only about Jaina. There was almost no noticable plot and I think Jaina is a little old for being such a child. You think Anakin and Jacen are dead, that's no reason to regress to a child! This writer captured grief all wrong for starters.
Secondly, a book just about Jaina doesn't appeal to EVERYONE. The general idea is to make a book as appealing to all audiences as possible and Cunningham failed miserably.
The book is not fit to follow Star by Star and would be better off as a very long side story.
The only somewhat notable thing that happened was the discovery of the Yammosk signals and the ability to jam them. Aside from that it was pretty much a garbage book with nothing happening.

Lots and lots of character development for Jaina Solo. The other characters get some development but not much for anyone else. Elaine Cunningham keeps Jaina in the spotlight for the entire book with a few appearances by Jag Fel. All other concerns as battles , other characters and the Yuzzhan Vong invasion are secondary to Jaina. I'd have really liked a closer look at Hapan life and Tennenial Djo & Prince Isolder.

Enter woman author #2 in the New Jedi Order series, Elaine Cunningham. Unlike Kathy Tyers, who essentially handles a typical sort of Star Wars story involving all the major characters, Cunningham focuses on Jaina in order to create what she must have envisioned as a women's Star Wars book, by a woman and about a woman. Romance and powerful, consuming emotions take center stage, with Jaina as the sassy vixen around whom it all revolves.
I am a woman, and I am offended by this insult to the maturity and intelligence of my gender.
Where to begin? Cunningham's writing is atrocious. She has neither a sense of continuity nor of how characters should be expected to react emotionally to events. Han and Leia have just lost one, maybe two children, so they joke around and flirt. Then, later, we get a few sentences about how profound their sadness is. How trite, Ms. Cunningham. It's good to know that the Solos were officially upset while fooling around on the Falcon. Similarly, every male in the galaxy seems (completely irrationally) to have the hots for Jaina Solo, who, sassy vixen that she is, is not adverse to indulging their fantasies. The book opens with Star Wars Spice Jaina sitting on Ganner's lap and making lewd comments about it. In the middle, she manipulates the usually practical Kyp Durron with her womanly wiles and unbelievable Force powers. The book closes with a gushingly sentimental Kyp "saving" his soul mate Jaina, who's taken her sassiness a little too far. This is as over-the-top as Moulin Rouge, but with only a fraction of the emotional depth.
Cunningham's treatment of the Force is as simplistic and flawed as her treatment of human emotions. In a series that focuses on questioning the nature of the Force, this novel is completely out of place.
