Scattering after the Yuuzhan Vong's invasion of
Coruscant, the panic-stricken members of the New
Republic Advisory Council pause just long enough to set
up a mock defence on nearby Borleias, an attempt to buy
time that fools no one, least of the Jedi.
Leia and Han Solo travel from world to world to ferment
rebellion against the New Republic's disastrous
appeasement policies. But Luke Skywalker has chosen the
most dangerous assignment of all: to sneak ino the
Yuuzhan Vong's stronghold on Coruscant. His outrageous
scheme to gain entry is either brilliant or suicidal,
depending on the outcome. Bearing down swiftly on
Borleias is a Yuuzhan Vong invasion fleet, determined to
destroy the galaxy's remaining defenders.
