5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent finish to the saga Jan. 13 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After many adventures and many friendships, not to mention fourteen novels, the much loved saga of the Young Jedi Knights has finally come to an end. I greeted this book with a measure of respect, and also a touch of sadness. I expected it to be one the best yet, and I was not disapointed. For a brief summery, Anja finally admits to herself that she is addicted to Andris Spice, (a type of drug) and, though she is trying to quit, she finally can't stand it any more. She steals Zekk's ship, The Lightning Rod, and heads for the spice mines of Kessal to get a few more doses to "tie her over" while she figures out what to do next. Naturally, the Young Jedi Knights go after her, and they eventually track her down to Crystal Reef, Calimari, and that's where the real adventure starts... In short, this book provided a fine close to this final trilogy, with (at last) an awesome confrontation with Czethros and Black Sun, as well as coming to terms with the question of Anja's adiction to spice. Speaking of Anja, this book really seemed to redeem her. I didn't like her at all at first, because of how much of a jerk she always is, and because it seemed that she was trying to replace Tenel Ka, whom I have always liked. She was better in this book, because she was at last admitting her mistakes to herself and to others and trying to set things right. Also, while this book solved the delima of this trilogy, there were many loose ends left unsatisfied, and it didn't seem to bring true closure to the whole series, except in the last few pages. For instance, what ever happened to Raynar after the death of his father? He was never one of my favorite characters anyway, but it should have been Zekk who was left out, not Raynar. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars The end is at hand Aug. 19 2000
By Gabe Z.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's over. The YJK series is at an end, but it's kind of unsatisfying end. To be brief, Anja, suffering from spice withdrawl, steals the Lightning Rod and jets to Kessel to get some of the drug. She learns of Czethros's hidden stash on Mon Calamari, and then goes there to find it. Lowie and Jaina go to Kessel and end up disrupting Black Sun's takeover of Nien Nunb's spice mining operation, and travel to Mon Cal to help out Zekk and Tenel Ka and Jacen. Ambassador Cilghal provided the group with a sub and the YJK make for the ice caps and then destroy the spice cache. Anja nearly dies until the Knights use a healing trance on her. They are nearly eaten by a sea monster looking for a nice snack, but they survive and return to the academy. Anja, discovering that she has no Force potential, goes to Cloud City and works with Lando to run the establishment. This book is drawn to a very disappointing close, with Jacen giving Tenel Ka a necklace and Zekk promising to let Jaina be his copilot whenever she wanted. I figured that since these relationships had been building over 2 years, that they would have a better end (in print.) However, there are many fan fictions dealing with that sort of thing, should you be so inclined. And that leaves me to wonder, in the New Jedi Order, where are Zekk and Tenel Ka? It's like they never existed. Oh well. May the Force be with you guys!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was very interesting and descriptive. Oct. 26 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a very interesting and descriptive book. It was alittle confusing at times but not too hard to understand. The names were weird and the hardest part of the book to read. I liked the ending, especially the battles. The battles were written well and sort of pulled me into the book. I don't think this book was as interesting as the other books in the Young Jedi Knights series. There wasn't as much action in this book as some of the books in the series. This book had more interesting dialogue that was packed with information. Even though there wasn't as much action in the book it is still a very good book. My favorite part of this book is when the Jedi Knights got attacked by the Great Arctic Skra'akan. I thought that part was really good and it told you the emotions of the Jedi Knights. This story is like the original Star Wars movies because of the weapons, the people, and the places. This story happens many years after the destruction of the Empire, after the New Republic was formed.

This book was great! Finally Anja has admitted to herself that she is addicted to Andris Spice. She also realizes that Jacen and Jaina are her friends and doesn't want to hurt them any more. It was about time that the New Republic recognize the Young Jedi Knights for all the work that they had done for them. My only regret is that there is a rumor going around the Book World that this book will be the last book that Kevin Anderson and Rebecca Moesta write on the Young Jedi Knights series. I hope that that is not true. I'm sure that every fan wants to see what will happen to the Jedi Knights relationships and what they will do in the future. So Kevin Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, if you happen to read this review, please don't stop writing these books! They're great and I'm sure every fan wants to see what the Jedi Knights will do with they're futures, not to mention they're relationships. Anyway, this book is awsome and if you want to read it you better hurry because I got the last book that they had in stock.
