Product Description

From the Inside Flap

At long last, the "New York Times bestselling series that launched the "Star Wars saga into the next generation and into thrilling new territory reaches its spectacular finale. Side by side, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, their children, and their comrades in the Galactic Alliance rally for their last stand against the enemy that threatens not only the galaxy, but the Force itself.
The Galactic Alliance's hard-won success in countering the Yuuzhan Vong onslaught has proven all too brief--and the tide has turned once more to the invaders' advantage. Having overcome the sabotage strategies of the Jedi and their allies, the marauding aliens have pushed deeper into the galaxy and subjugated more worlds in their ruthless quest for domination. Coruscant has been remade into a Yuuzhan Vong stronghold. The remnants of the resistance are struggling to form a united front. Luke, Mara, and Jacen are missing in action. Clearly the stage is set for endgame.
Now, as Han and Leia receive the chilling news that hundreds of high-ranking Galactic Alliance prisoners face slaughter in a sacrifice to the enemy's bloodthirsty gods, Luke and his team try desperately to convince the living world of Zonama Sekot to join the Jedi's final campaign against the Yuuzhan Vong. Yet even as they speak, a lone space station is all that stands between Alliance headquarters on Mon Calamari . . . and wave after wave of ferocious enemy forces waging their most decisive assault.
At the same time, the Jedi's alliances throughout the galaxy are being tested--and the chances of victory jeopardized--by rogue factions determined to deploy the lethal weapon that will exterminate the Yuuzhan Vong . . . andperhaps countless other species. And among the Yuuzhan Vong themselves, the threat of revolt has reached a boiling point--as the oppressed underclass and powerful officials alike fear their Supreme Overlord's mad actions will provoke the wrath of the gods.
Ultimately, for both the forces of invasion and resistance, too much has been sacrificed --and too much is at stake--to ever turn back. And now, nothing can stand in the way of seizing victory . . . or facing annihilation.

Format: Hardcover
At long last, the end of the New Jedi Order series and the genocidal Yuuzhan Vong war has come to pass. After five years, 19 books (plus assorted e-book mini-novels), not to mention several acts of tragedy and heroism, the climatic book has arrived. With the length and breadth of the New Jedi Order series, there is a tremendous pressure that lays on the shoulder of the author whose task it is to conclude this epic in a manner which resolves every outstanding plot development, does not cheat the audience with any 'too convenient' endings, and gives the readers a true satisfaction with the finale and the scope of the entire series. This great responsibility was placed in the hands (and pen) of James Luceno, the author of the "Agents of Chaos" Duology ("Hero's Trial" and "Jedi Eclipse"). This was some cause of concern because Luceno wrote the only two New Jedi Order novels that I found to be lacking. The "Agents of Chaos" Duology wasn't necessarily bad; it just suffered from the 'middle book (books?)' syndrome of trying to further the story while knowing that no definitive conclusions could be reached. Trepidation and anticipation competed equally as I began "The Unifying Force", the final chapter in the New Jedi Order saga. With great relief and equal amounts of excitement, I am happy to report that Luceno nailed this one out of the park.

Fears that a lackluster story and cop-out developments would plague this story the way they have the Star Wars prequel movies have proven unfounded. Where the previous 18 novels did a grand job of setting up a dramatic finale, "The Unifying Force" does a spectacular job of realizing that finale.

Format: Hardcover
I have to give Luceno credit for writing some of the best dialogue seen in any New Jedi Order novel.
He makes Han Solo the easy favorite with dialogue matching what we loved from the films. C-3PO and R2-D2 are also written better than I have ever seen in any Star Wars book. In fact, this is the first time I have seen Threepio used the way we are used to in the films. Other authers seem to have a hard time using the droids at all - let alone make it fit into the story in a natural way.
But still, with all the good this book has in dialogue, I can't help but notice the pressure Luceno must have felt in completing the series.
A lot of time is wasted on repeating stuff we all know from previous novels. And some of the situations seem to be manufactured just to get some use out of certain popular characters (I'm not referring to the droids here).
Nom Anor was inconsistant. Harrar was too "good" to soon. Jaina wasn't used in a significant way (she felt like a third wheel). Boba Fett is kind to Han? (Where was he and his army in the rest of the series?)
I suppose everybody wants to know what happens, but I won't reveal that in a review. You'll have to read the book yourself.
Suffice it to say that there is closure - if somewhat rushed.
I would give it 3½ stars, but have to lower it because I simply expected more. Great dialogue isn't everything. :)
BTW, this is NOT the final post-ROTJ novel (as a few reviewers have claimed) because Walter Jon Williams of Destiney's Way fame has been contracted to write a follow-up "post-NJO" series to be released in 2005.

Format: Audio CD
This is a review of the AUDIO CD book. While this is an abridgement it is 5 CDs and 5 hours long.
This is the best NJO novel of them all.
OK. Maybe I'm glad the NJO is finally over and I'm over-rating this book for that reason. But NO! This book manages to tie up many lose ends - not all of them tho like some have said - and deliver a coherent conclusion amidst tremendous action. A lot of your questions are answered here, but many interesting questions remain unanswered, leaving the door open for future books to followup.
This is a 5 star effort. Check me out. I seldom give 5 stars.
I will never let Lucas licensing suck me into a series again. They made me want to buy every book as a MUST HAVE for the series, but then they start killing off some of my favorite characters. I stopped after SBS for a long time buying the books, relying on the library or otherwise borrowing until recently. Having said that, I really DO like what is going on in the Pre-quel storylines.. mixing the books, comics and movies to tell a fuller story. I'll be sad when they kill Quinlan Vos, Windu and the others but we know it is their likely destiny.
I always felt that killing ANAKIN was mean and insensitive to long time star wars followers like myself.
So this is the bitter end of the bitter NJO. A sentient Planet? Lets see by a raise of hands, how many would have preferred Anakins help to that of a sentient planet?
I know a lot of people thought it was cool to kill heroes like Chewy and Anakin Solo. The compassionate among you urged us to GET OVER IT!! The Editors asked us to trust them. Mostly that trust was misplaced, though they did deliver a 4 star and 5 star book at the end as numbers 18 and 19. Still, I would have loved to see Anakin charge in after Shimmra with his siblings, Leia, Han, Uncle Luke and Aunt Mara.
That would have been the perfect end.
