In the explosive conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy, Luke Skywalker summons the heroes of the New Jedi Order from near and far, as the Star Wars galaxy teeters on the edge of eternal war. Yet even the combined powers of the formidable Jedi may not be enough to vanquish the deadly perils confronting them.

The Chiss-Killik border war is threatening to engulf the entire galaxy and raising the awful specter of Killiks sweeping across space to absorb all living creatures into a single hive mind. The only hope for peace lies with the Jedi-and only if they can not only end the bloodshed between two fierce enemies but also combat the insidious evil spread by the elusive Dark Nest and its unseen queen.

Leia's newly acquired Jedi skills will be put to the ultimate test in the coming life-and-death battle. As for Luke, he will have to prove, in a lightning display of Force strength and swordplay, that he is- beyond a shadow of a doubt-the greatest Jedi Master in the galaxy.

The ending is not as grand as it could have been since Denning quickly wraps up this novel and begins to set up for the Legacy Of the Force series. The plot made sense but there was not much of a story. Something happened in the beginning, middle, and end. In between, there were just battles and fighting. Although Denning writes the space battles well and they are fun to read. Luke´s character was unusually angry and this was probably because of Mara, who is irritating in every book she happens to appear in. I really liked how Luke and Leia discover who their mother is throughout this book trilogy, and think that the inclusion of part of Episode 3 is pretty awesome! Luke doesn´t actually use any Force Lightning like the cover makes the reader believe.
