Publisher's summary[]

'Swift and deadly, the Yuuzhan Vong have blasted their way across the New Republic—and now stand on the threshold of total victory. Yet a courageous few still dare to oppose them…'

From the ashes of the New Republic—torn to shreds by the savage Yuuzhan Vong forces—the newly formed Galactic Federation of Free Alliances has risen, determined to bring peace to the galaxy. But first the Yuuzhan Vong must be contained once and for all. As Han and Leia Solo journey on their quest to knit the unraveling galaxy back together, Luke Skywalker seeks a world long lost in legend: Zonama Sekot, a sentient planet believed to have repelled an invasion by the Yuuzhan Vong decades ago. Deciphering the enigmatic secrets of Zonama Sekot just might turn the tide of a relentless war.

Aboard the Jade Shadow, Luke, his wife Mara, Jacen Solo, and other Jedi head off into the Unknown Regions. Rife with hostile cultures and outright enemies, this is where clues suggest the mystery planet might be found. Yet the mission has barely begun when the searchers stumble into a horrific battle. An Imperial Remnant, in retreat from the mighty Yuuzhan Vong, is about to be destroyed. It would seem those aboard the Jade Shadow have little choice but to leave the Empire to its fate.

But these are no ordinary space travelers—they are Jedi
