In this book, the New Republic is facing a new threat in the form of a mysterious group called the "Dark Jedi," who are using their powers to disrupt communications and cause chaos throughout the galaxy. As the New Republic struggles to track down and stop these rogue Force users, a new ally appears in the form of an enigmatic woman named Lady Vima-Da-Boda, who claims to have knowledge of the Dark Jedi's plans. The story follows several characters as they navigate this new crisis, including Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, and Han Solo. Along the way, they encounter old enemies and new allies, and must use all their skills and resources to uncover the truth behind the Dark Jedi's plot and stop them before it's too late.

Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in the galaxy, millions suddenly perish in a blinding instant of pain, anguish, and despair - a disruption of the Force so shocking, it is felt by Luke at his Jedi academy on Yavin 4 and by Leia at home on Coruscant. It is a deed that rivals the terrifying power of the Death Star, the long-destroyed weapon of the defeated Empire.

Then death comes to Coruscant itself. As Leia, head of the New Republic, prepares to address the Senate, a massive explosion decimates the Senate's ranks. Leia survives and recovers, only to be faced with calls to resign from office. Even worse, some of the Senators lay the blame for the attack on Han Solo.

As Leia works desperately to clear Han's name, Han and Chewbacca journey to the lawless asteroids of Smuggler's Run to track down rumors of a secret plot against the New Republic. And Luke goes in search of Brakiss, a former Jedi student who has turned his considerable talents to the dark side and might well have been involved in the unexplainable deaths that so disturbed Luke and Leia.

But Brakiss is only a small part of the carnage taking place on Coruscant and elsewhere. Luke is being stalked by a master of the dark side who is determined to rule as the next emperor. Luke, Leia, and Leia's Jedi children are targeted for death. Then billions will follow, in a holocaust unequaled in galactic history.
