  • Star Wars; Volume XIII of The New Jedi Order. After the capture of Coruscant, the heart of the New Republic, a stunned galaxy fears that nothing can stop the Yuuzhan Vong.  Yet the crushing defeat has produced a miracle:  Jacen Solo is alive.  He is in the care of Vergere, a fascinating creature of mystery and power, her intentions hard to fathom, her cruelties rarely concealed. But this master of inscrutable arts has much to teach the young Jedi...for she holds the key to a new way to experience the Force, to take it to another level - dangerous, dazzling, perhaps deadly. In the wrong hands, the tremendous energies of the Force can be devastating. And there are others watching Jacen's progress closely, waiting patiently for the moment when he will be ready for their own dire purposes. Now, all is in shadows. Yet whatever happens, whether Jacen's newfound mastery unleashes light or darkness, he will never be the same Jedi again...Cover art by Cliff Neilson.
