Publisher's Summary

Repercussions from the dark side's fatal seduction of Jacen Solo and the mysterious plague of madness afflicting young Jedi continue to wreak havoc galaxy-wide. Having narrowly escaped the deranged Force worshippers known as the Mind Walkers, and a deadly Sith hit squad, Luke and Ben Skywalker are in pursuit of the now masterless Sith apprentice. It is a chase that leads to the forbidding planet Dathomir, where an enclave of powerful dark-side Force-wielders will give Vestara the edge she needs to escape - and where the Skywalkers will be forced into combat for their quarry and their lives.
Meanwhile, Han and Leia have completed their own desperate mission, shuttling madness-stricken Jedi from Coruscant to a safe haven in the Transitory Mists and beyond the grasp of Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala. But the bold maneuver has intensified Daalas fury, and she is determined to shatter Jedi Order resistance once and for all.
Yet no greater threat exists than that which still waits in the depths of the distant Maw Cluster: a being of pure, ravenous dark-side energy named Abeloth calls out across the stars to Jedi and Sith alike. For some it may be the ultimate source of answers crucial to their survival. For others it could be the ultimate weapon of conquest. But for all, it is a game-changing and life-altering encounter of untold magnitude and a tactical gambit with unimaginable consequences.

What was the backlash?

The Fate of the Jedi series just doesn't live up to the previous series. The series seems a little flat. This book is hard to figure out the main plot and what's with Zek suddenly showing up and then doing nothing. I think that I'm ready to see the Skywalker and Solo kids really break out on their own. You gotta love Luke, Leia and Han, but they are 70 years old.

Marc Thompson does his usual excellent job of storytelling.

Getting better and better.

If you could sum up Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Backlash in three words, what would they be?

This series is great. The story gets better as it goes with this one being very exciting to listen to. It was full of epic battles and twisting plots that had me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series Allies.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Definitely Luke Skywalker is the man but, Vistara Kai has my attention. im very curious about where this character is going in this series.
