THE EXTRAORDINARY NEXT EPISODE IN THE STAR WARS GALAXY BEGINS HERE ...

The Galactic Alliance is in crisis. Worse still, the very survival of the Jedi Order is under threat.
In a shocking move, Chief of State, Natasi Daala, orders the arrest of Luke Skywalker for failing to prevent Jacen Solo's turn to the dark side. But it's only the first blow in an anti-Jedi backlash fueled by a hostile government and a media-driven witch hunt. Facing conviction, Luke must strike a bargain with the calculating Daala - his freedom in exchange for his exile from Coruscant and from the Jedi Order.
Though forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is determined to keep history from being repeated. With his son, Ben, at his side, Luke sets out to unravel the shocking truth behind Jacen Solo's corruption and downfall. But the secrets he uncovers among the enigmatic Force mystics of the distant world Dorin may bring his quest - and life as he knows it - to a sudden end. And all the while, another Jedi Knight, consumed by a mysterious madness, is headed for Coruscant on a fearsome mission that could doom the Jedi Order . . . and devastate the entire galaxy.

The first novel in the Star Wars series Fate of the Jedi. Something weird is happening to young Jedi, and Grand Master Luke Skywalker sets out on a mission to uncover the truth along with his teenage son Ben. Plus a lot of other Galactic Alliance political drama. Read full review
