Takes place in
36 ABY
In the
New Jedi Order
In the explosive conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy, Denning delivers on decapitations, epic lightsaber fights, character drama, biological warfare, assassination attempts, subterfuge, and so much more! The trilogy sees many of the major characters undergoing permanent change—Luke Skywalker assumes the mantle of Grand Master of the New Jedi Order, Jacen Solo commits to his own path of following his own moral compass and burying the lies of what really happened on Hapes, Leia becomes a fully-fledged Jedi Knight, and several of the younger Jedi are banished for their dark actions during this messy war. It bridges the gap between the New Jedi Order and the Legacy of the Force series in a way that is uniquely Star Wars Legends.

Publisher's Summary

In the explosive conclusion to the Dark Nest trilogy, Luke Skywalker summons the heroes of the New Jedi Order from near and far as the Star Wars galaxy teeters on the edge of eternal war. Yet even the combined powers of the formidable Jedi may not be enough to vanquish the deadly perils confronting them.

Luke Skywalker summons Jedi Knights from all over the galaxy as war starts. Yet even the combined might of the Jedi Order may not be enough against the deadly perils confronting them.

The Chiss-Killik border confrontation is threatening to engulf the entire galaxy in yet another galactic war. The Killik have planned to absorb all living creatures into a single hive mind. The only hope for peace lies in the hands of the Jedi, who must not only end the war between the Chiss and the Killik but also confront the new threat of the Dark Nest and its unseen queen.

Leia's Jedi skills will be put to the test in the coming conflict, while Luke will have to prove in a brilliant display of Force strength and swordplay, that he is the most powerful Jedi Master in the galaxy.
