Selvaris, faintly green against a sweep of white-hot stars, and with only a tiny moon for companionship, looked like the loneliest of planets. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
James Luceno's mastery of the Star Wars universe is hard to match, after The Unifying Force. In this novel, he successfully ties together nearly every mystery left from the previous novels of the New Jedi Order, closing old plot threads and hinting enough at new ones to make sure the Star Wars universe stays an interesting place for many years to come.
Luceno had one of the most challenging tasks in terms of the pure difficulty of writing this novel that any Star Wars novelist has faced. He had to maintain continuity as well as tying up all the loose ends that nit-picky readers like myself would have instantly caught - and he succeeded marvelously. Not only did he do so, but he created heroes that all of us can wish to be like. The NJO had its ups and its downs. This was one of its ups, a close tie for me with Traitor, the only other NJO novel that was as powerful as thrilling.
Luceno's character development was, as usual, flawless and exceptional. Luke Skywalker finally became the Jedi Master readers of the NJO had longed to see him as. Mara Jade Skywalker, while staying utterly true to her no-nonsense, kick-butt character, also demonstrated the side of her that cares so strongly for the Republic and her son Ben. Nom Anor got a fitting finish: his character (the true center of the saga, in many ways) remains constant to the end, and you'll appreciate it, believe me. Jacen becomes the incredibly deep and thoughtful yet powerful Jedi Knight we saw in Traitor, exceeding my greatest expectations. Jaina was a hit-and-miss character, never quite living up to her billing - one of Luceno's only low points in my opinion. The only other low points were how Danni Quee and Jagged Fel were developed - not that it was bad, but that it was not all that it could have been.

Unifying Force was the best conclusion to the New Jedi Order Series. Which is a must read series for any Star Wars fan. I think Mr. Luceno really did an amazing job with this book. The intricate plot is woven around the utterlly intrigueing Star Wars expanded universe. I recomend you read the other 18 books before this one. Believe me its addictive I read it over 20 times. Email me what you think of the book I love reading other Fans Opinions.

Format: Hardcover
All good things must come to and end. And this book has lots of good things and a masterful ending. Unifying Force is the climactic conclusion to the New Jedi Order story arc. This story arc started 18 books ago with Vector Prime, a novel in which we were introduced to an enemy the likes of which had never been seen in the Star Wars universe. Vector Prime set in motion one the most grandiose and ambitious stories I have ever read. The story wound its way through several different events, characters and authors, falling in the hands of James Luceno to tie it all together.
In Unifying Force, Luceno had to bring the story a close, as well as, meet every expectation ever set forth for this series. Luceno, like the story itself, succeeded in grand fashion. There are so many great aspects of this book, but to name them specifically would spoil the story for anyone who reads this review before the book.
Lets just say Luceno gives equal attention to the main story arc, tying up loose ends, and the little details that enrich and deepen the story as a whole. With the main story, Luceno does a great job with scene changes to touch on the varied events going on simultaneously. With such a large and varied cast, this helps keep the novel well paced with constant action.
Tying up the loose ends, in my opinion, was going to be the hardest part. This was, to an extent, the heart of the story. So many questions had been set forth that had to be answered for the conclusion to, in any way, be satisfying. In the end we get the answers to everything: why the Vong are devoid of the Force, why the Vong left their galaxy, why Zonama Sekot seemed so familiar to the Vong, why Shimrra kept Onimi as a pet, what Nom Anor's role was, and what the Vong culture was like.

This was a tough book to put down. It was refreshing to see the Skywalker clan find solace and closure at last. The war's end was inventive, with a few slightly surprising twists along the way. The end of the book provided a very good resolution to the greater Vong/Alliance conflict, though it could have been a bit more detailed. Overall, I highly recommend it.

As sad as this is to say, I am happy this series is over. It was a noble concept which did keep me longing for the next book in the series. I was a little disappointed in the first 1/4 - 1/3 of the book which went over the whole series. Anyone who read this series knows what happened and most likely didn't need a recap. But, for the most part, this was a fun quick read. The ending was pretty good. The action scenes were great. Definitely worth the read.

This probably the best book I've read. From the space battles at Selvaris to the battles of Caluula. And to spice it up even more, the ending is extremely satisfying. I HIGHLY recommend this book.

I liked the book but felt it lacked in the way it dealt with the vong, with them going from this large group to all of them being placed on the living planet. Also I was expecting a better explanaiton of how the vong where stripped of the force, since vigri did it to Jacen shouldn't there have been some analogy there. I agree with the on commmenter about Luke showing his Warrior side again, was nice to see.
