The Yuuzhan Vong war has reached Yavin IV, where the students at the Jedi Academy are in grave danger because the New Republic and Jedi forces are spread thin across the galaxy. Anakin Solo takes it upon himself to come to the rescue. There he is reunited with his childhood friend Tahiri and the ancient Jedi Master Ikrit from the Junior Jedi Knights series. Soon Anakin finds himself behind enemy lines and befriending the unlikeliest of allies in order to save his friend and escape.

Publisher's Summary

No longer content with the destruction the Yuuzhan Vong have already sown, Warmaster Tsavong Lah has demanded the heads of all the Jedi. Now the Jedi Knights are in terrible danger–and none more so than the young students at the Jedi academy on Yavin 4. Already the sympathizers known as the Peace Brigade are in the Yavin system–and a Yuuzhan Vong fleet is not far behind.

At Luke Skywalker’s request, Talon Karrde mounts an expedition to rescue the young students. Anakin Solo has his own ideas. Impatient, and figuring that forgiveness is easier to come by than permission, he takes off for Yavin 4 in his X-wing.

When it comes to confidence, courage, and raw Force talent, Anakin has few peers. But when his friend Tahiri is separated from the other academy kids and captured by the Yuuzhan Vong, even Anakin may be in over his head. For the aliens have a different future in mind for Tahiri, and they will stop at nothing to achieve their horrific ends . . .
