The Jedi Order is in crisis The late Jacen Solo’s shocking transformation into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who wield the Force for good Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable and dangerous psychosis criminal charges have driven Luke Skywalker into self imposed exile and power hungry Chief of State Natasi Daala is exploiting anti Jedi sentiment to undermine the Order’s influence within the Galactic Alliance Forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs Luke is on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind Jacen’s fall to the dark side–a This was a short but important book in the Fate of the Jedi series The One Sith are mentioned but have not yet announced themselves to the Jedi or the galaxy The Lost tribe of the Sith are finally ending their seclusion after 5000 yearThe story More Jedi are falling victim to the strange illness that causes them to have paranoid delusions that everyone they know has been replaced by imposters The only similar trait they seem to have is that they are exhibiting powers and abilities in the force that they never learned abilities that were used last by Jacen Solo Han and Leia while rising their adopted daughter Allana are trying their best to defuse the continued hostilities between the Jedi and the GA government This could escalate with Jaina Solo leading a secrete strike force of Jedi to capture the affected Jedi so they can receive proper treatment before the GA can get their hands on themLuke and Ben still in exile follow a lead that takes them to the race of force users who are most adept to the Flow walking techniue that Jacen used to seduce other Jedi to his side Here the force is not seen simply as Light or Dark but as of a rainbow Though Luke does not agree with their philosophies he cannot deny their abilities in the force It is great to see Luke learn a couple of new trick to add to his already impressive force abilitiesA good story sowing the seeds for things to come I always judge a book to be good if it leaves me wanting to continue reading the next book in the series immediately All in all a good but shorter than average Star Wars book I can see many important events in the future coming from this This book must be read right to the end as big things happen in the last couple of chapters
