The second installment in the Dark Tide duology sees various attempts to stop the Yuuzhan Vong: Caamasi Senator Elegos A’Kla seeks peace through diplomatic negotiations, Corran Horn investigates a spore native to the planet of Ithor capable of weakening the Vong’s crab armor, while Jaina Solo makes a military alliance with Jagged Fel and the Chiss Defense Force, as well as Gilad Pellaeon and the Imperial Remnant. The Vong unleash a planet-annihilating force of destruction upon the peaceful planet of Ithor. To save it, Corran Horn must challenge Shedao Shai into an honor-duel upon which the fate of an entire planet hinges.

Publisher's Summary

The alien Yuuzhan Vong have launched an attack on the worlds of the Outer Rim. They are merciless, without regard for life—and they stand utterly outside the Force. Their ever-changing tactics stump the New Republic military. Even the Jedi, once the greatest guardians of peace in the galaxy, are rendered helpless by this impervious foe—and their solidarity has begun to unravel.

While Luke struggles to keep the Jedi together, Knights Jacen Solo and Corran Horn set off on a reconnaissance mission to the planet Garqi, an occupied world. There, at last, they uncover a secret that might be used to undermine the enemy—if only they can stay alive long enough to use it!
