While Tenel Ka receives a visit from Ambassador Yfra, the other young Jedi travel to Lando Calrissian's GemDiver station in the Yavin gas giant. Lando takes them hunting for Corusca gems (Jacen gets one). Suddenly, an Imperial fleet pops up in the Yavin system. Led by a Nightsister named Tamith Kai, the Imperials smash the station and kidnap the Jedi children. Luke and Tenel Ka track the Imperials to Borgo Prime as the Republic mobilises their forces.
The children come to en route to the Core. Qorl has betrayed them and is leading them to a cloaked "Shadow Academy" used by the Empire to train Dark Jedi. The school "dean" is Brakiss, former student of Luke. When they resist his teachings, Brakiss tortures them and places them in separate cells. Luke and Tenel head to Dathomir on their search and learn of a new group of Nightsisters, being trained at the Great Canyon by Brakiss. They decide to go undercover.
Tamith begins training Lowie, while Brakiss concentrates on the twins. Both work on increasing the children's anger. Brakiss forces the two children to unknowingly fight each other using holographic disguises. He plans another trip to Yavin to steal all the other trainees. The Nightsisters take Luke and Tenel to the Shadow Academy, even as the children begin their escape. The united group fights off Brakiss and Tamith and blasts free in the Shadow Academy's state-of-the art ship Shadow Chaser. The Jedi return to Yavin and begin preparing for when they will face Brakiss again.

This story occurs approximately 22 years after the Battle of Yavin.
