Publisher's summary[]

On ancient Tython, the Force is out of balance, causing a massive Force storm which could destroy the entire planet!

As three mighty Je'daii Masters strive to subdue the storm, three of their students struggle to forge an uneasy alliance with the dark stranger whose presence created the storm in the first place.

As the first arc of the epic tale comes to a close, powers beyond even the Je'daii's understanding will be revealed, and a threat to the galaxy at large will be unveiled!

Plot summary[]

The Force Hound Xesh abandoned the Je'daii Journeyers who saved him from the saarl in the Rift, but he remains behind to watch them fight. However, Shae Koda's demonstration of the light side of the Force and her determination to protect her friends intrigues the Force Hound, who returns to join Koda in her fight as Je'daii Rangers Rori Fenn and Hawk Ryo arrive to aid them. Xesh succeeds in killing the saarl, but the Force Storm continues to grow in power with the Force Hound at its center. With the aid of the other Je'daii Temple Masters, Quan-Jang shifts the Force back into balance and ends the storm, though his apparent death in doing so leads an enraged Koda to activate Xesh's Forcesaber—a feat only the Force Hound had been capable of—and to try and kill Xesh in revenge before she comes to her senses. Xesh, Quan-Jang, and the others are healed of their injuries at Mahara Kesh, the Temple of Healing, but despite the Journeyers' protests, the Je'daii Council exiles Xesh to Bogan so that he can find balance.[1]
