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.
"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.Read more ›

"Jedi Under Siege" lacked the exitement the other five books in the series had. Don't get me wrong, I liked it, but it didn't have as much action as I had hoped. Read morePublished on June 17 2000 by Lisa J. Roemer
