The Edge of Victory Duology is a portion of the The New Jedi Order book series written by Greg Keyes consisting of The New Jedi Order: Edge of Victory I: Conquest and The New Jedi Order: Edge of Victory II: Rebirth.
It was a replacement for the canceled Knightfall Trilogy.
An omnibus collecting both novels into a single volume was published by the Science Fiction Book Club.
Against Luke Skywalker's orders, Anakin Solo has taken his X-Wing into battle, unable to sit by as the Yuuzhan Vong onslaught turns its full fury on the Jedi academy of Yavin IV. Locked into desperate rear guard action, Anakin helps cover the retreat of the young Jedi trainees, but even as the shattered survivors escape, he finds himself trapped on the jungle moon. Worse, Yuuzhan Vong shapers may have found a way to turn his friend Tahiri into a Dark Jedi, a deadly pawn to follow their bidding.
But in this time of ultimate danger, the faintest glimmer of hope appears, as the first real chink is revealed in the Yuuzhan Vong armor. Now in a race against time, Anakin draws deeply upon the Force to help save Tahiri from her anguish, while Luke sends Jacen Solo on a mission to pull Anakin and Tahiri from the deathtrap of Yavin IV.
