Publisher's summary

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.

Luke Skywalker summons Jedi Knights from all over the galaxy as war starts. Yet even the combined might of the Jedi Order may not be enough against the deadly perils confronting them.

The Chiss-Killik border confrontration is threatening to engulf the entire galaxy in yet another galactic war. The Killik have planned to absorb all living creatures into a single hive mind. The only hope for peace lies in the hands of the Jedi, who must not only end the war between the Chiss and the Killik but also confront the new threat of the Dark Nest and its unseen queen.

Leia's Jedi skills will be put to the test in the coming conflict, while Luke will have to prove in a brilliant display of Force strength and swordplay, that he is the most powerful Jedi Master in the galaxy.


This is the third and last book in the Dark Nest trilogy that bridges the events of the New Jedi Order saga and the 9-part Legacy of the Force series.

With the Jedi Order splintered by conflicts of conscience, and a war erupting between the Killiks and Chiss that could spread across the entire galaxy, troubled Jedi Master Luke Skywalker takes charge. His bold plan will play all sides against each other and carry those closest to him deep into hostile territory. It is also the only thing standing between the galaxy and the eternal war that his nephew, Jacen Solo, has foreseen in nightmarish visions.

Hoping to stop his nightmarish visions of a galaxial war from happening, Jacen and the other Myrkr survivors have launched attacks on Chiss outposts on the border frontier. It all leads up to a confrontation with the real masterminds of this war, a confrontation will only be won if Luke Skywalker assumes his fated role as Grand Master of the Jedi Order...if he and the others can survive the Swarm War.
