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...
