Back cover

"I name you the Sword of the Jedi. Always you shall be in the front rank, a burning brand to your enemies, a brilliant fire to your friends...."

Once mysterious prophecy, Luke Skywalker's words have become truth. But can even the Sword of the Jedi bring down one of the most powerful Sith Lords of all time?

Internal flap

No war can last forever. Now, in the long and punishing battle between the defiant champions of the New Jedi Order and the juggernaut that is the Galactic Alliance, the endgame is finally at hand. With so much lost—and nothing less than the course of the future still at stake—there can be no turning back. No matter the consequences.

The rebel cause is losing ground under the twin blows of Admiral Gilad Pellaeon’s assassination and the death of Mara Jade Skywalker. At the same time, having gained the support of the Imperial Remnant and its ruthlessly efficient forces, the Galactic Alliance, with the extraordinary power and dark brilliance of newly ascendant Sith Lord Darth Caedus at its helm, may be unstoppable. Tormented and torn between the call of duty and the thirst for vengeance, Luke has searched the Force and beheld an unspeakable vision of the galaxy enslaved under tyranny more monstrous than even Palpatine’s. Now it seems that the last, best hope lies in mobilizing the scattered Jedi for one decisive search-and-destroy mission. The objective: eliminate Darth Caedus.

It’s a plan that will be as difficult and dangerous to execute as it is daring. For Caedus is a scion of both the Skywalker and Solo bloodlines whose command of the Force surpasses even that of his grandfather Darth Vader. There is only one who is bound by destiny to stand against him in what will surely be a duel to the death, only one with an outside chance of bringing down the dark lord who was once Jacen Solo.

Failure is not an option. The furious final moments between power and peace are here, and whoever confronts Darth Caedus will decide the outcome—and the fate of those left standing.

Behind the scenes

Each chapter begins with a joke told by Jacen Solo when he was a teenager (young Jedi) training at the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4. Many of these were taken from the Young Jedi Knights series of young reader novels, though the authors acknowledgments state that some original material was also contributed by Andria Hayday and Sue Rostoni.

On page 85, Leia Solo suggests distracting Darth Caedus during a battle by sending him an episode of BattleSun Odyssey, a possible reference to popular Sci-Fi channel series Battlestar Galactica.

In the Audiobook version the name of Onimi (mentioned once) is pronounced differently than in the New Jedi Order Audiobooks.

During the 2009 San Diego Comic Con Fate of the Jedi panel, author Troy Denning revealed that he had written an alternate ending for the series in which Flow Walking would be used to bring Anakin Solo back to life. “...I’ve now killed of both the Solo boys. I didn’t want to, so I tried to come up with a way to make up for such a dark ending to that story arc…”
