I first saw STAR WARS in 1991, I was seven. When this book came out in '96, it was the first Star Wars book I'd ever read, and was the conduit between fan and fanatic. Granted, most of it didn't make a lot of sense as I hadn't read the previous five books in the series yet, but it was still a page-turning read. 'Jedi Under Seige' wraps up the 'Shadow Academy' series of Young Jedi Knights. This series was done as a series of individual events that all tied together in 'Seige'. The second sub-series, 'Diversity Alliance', is one long adventure divided into five major events. A third sub-series, 'The Gallandro Trilogy', is more or less a waste of time. But 'Seige', alone or in context, delivers the goods.
Kavin J. Anderson has probably never had an original idea in his life. He's written numerous Star Wars novels, co-written three Dune novels, at least three X-files books, but only a precious few original stories whose plots seem suspiciously like old episodes of Star Trek. Anderson's wife, Rebecca Moesta, has even fewer credentials. However, Anderson and Moesta both have solid skills at characterizing, plot-development and visualizastion, though sometimes their dialogue falls flat.
Despite all of the down-falls that would seem to make this book a waste of time, it's not. The few hours spanned in the story move faster than real-time with action, emotion, and some genuinely witty dialogue here and there.

Written by the terrific husband and wife team, Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, the Star Wars Young Jedi Knights series are not to be missed! These series of books center on the young twins of Han Solo and Lei Organa, Jacen and Jacen, and their friends, Lowbacca and Tenel Ka, as they journey on the road to becoming Jedi Knights.
"Jedi Under Siege", the sixth book of the YJK series, is the last book of one story arc. The story begins right after book five, "Darkest Knight", when the young Jedis have learned that the Second Imperium plans an attack upon Yavin 4 where Luke Skywalker's Jedi academy is located. Jacen, Jaina, Tenel Ka, and Lowie rush back to Yavin 4 just in time for when Shadow Academy gets ready to launch their forces. When the academy's shield generator is destroyed, the have only one choice, and that is to fight against the Dark Jedi Master Brakiss, Darkest Knight Zekk, Nightsister Tamith Kai, and their forces. If Skywalker and his Jedis gain victory, that means the end of the Second Imperium. But if they are defeated, then there will be no more hope for the future of the galaxy...
I must say that I just love the Young Jedi Knights, which is best read in order! I really like all Star Wars books but this series one of my favorites for the reasons that, 1) the characters are very interesting and close to my age, 2) superbly and well written, and 3) all books are exciting and full of adventure. The four main characters of the books are well likable because each of them have their own personalities, characteristics, and quirks. Jacen with his love for all living plants, animals, insects, etc. Jaina with her mechanical ability and strong willed nature. Tenel Ka, the warrior and true friend. And of course there's Lowie, courageous and strong.

First of all, just in case Amazon doesn't fix this wrong link, if anyone reads my other review here somewhere it's actually a review for Number 3 The Lost Ones, but THEY messed it up and put it here instead. This however, is my real review for this book, Young Jedi Knights, Number 6, Jedi Under Siege. In this book the Young Jedi Knights rush back to Yavin 4 from their previous adventures on Kashyyyk to warn everyone of the impending attack from the Shadow academy. When they get there, the Jedi think they have at least a few hours before the battle to prepare, but in fact the dark Jedi show up just a few moments later. This whole book was basicly one long battle scene that involves just about everyone, original characters and new ones. Also what I liked about it was that this book didn't just focus on the same group of characters (Jacen, Jaina, Tenel Ka, Lowie, Zekk and if we're lucky Brakiss) like a lot of the other books did. Instead everyone has their own moment of glory, and even the older characters get to have some book space. Luke even got to have his own lightsaber battle which was of course the highlight of book, no, the series! Even after all this time he is still the coolest Star Wars character ever and he finally gets the chance to prove it. This book also has major conclusions to Zekk, the existence of the Shadow Academy, and the reserected emperor. This book was probably the best written of all these, though as far as being my favorite it is tied with Lightsabers, which is number 4.

This book is a remarkable end to the first series of the Young Jedi Knights books. Everyone is preparing for the battle against the Shadow Academy. But there is a problem. The Great Temple only has shield protection. There are no New Republic troops to help them on the ground. The way the Jedi Knights handle this is sometimes funny and at other times dangerous. For example, Jaina Solo comanderes a TIE fighter that has crashed but heads out into space with it and the New Republic Forces think she's thier enemy, understandably. Then there is another problem. Jaina and Jacens friend turned enemy Zeek. Jaina and Zeek duel it our in the end with thier lightsabers and.......... well if you want to know the rest, you better run out and buy the book! You'll love it as soon as you turn the first page. You'll never put a Star Wars book down. Those who read Star Wars books know that I'm right. Just ask them. Until then, Happy Reading! AND MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
