The heroes of the Star Wars galaxy have survived the
Yuuzhan Vong invasion, but the disappearance of a small
team of Jedi Knights, including Jaina and Jacen Solo, in
the Unknown Regions has sparked controversy. The
reclusive Chiss has lodged a formal complaint, angrily
accusing the missing Jedi of meddling in a border
dispute between the Chiss and an unidentified aggressor.
Jedi Master Luke Skywalker ventures into the Unknown
Regions to contain the damage, while Han and Leia
follow, concerned for their children. What they find is
a colony of mysterious aliens edging towards Chiss
space, led by a Force adept who is recruiting old and
powerful friends to his cause. He is compelling them to
join the colony and meld their Force-abilities with his,
even if it leads to all-out war.
