Summary:

The New Jedi Order continues as Jaina Solo struggles with anger and despair after the Jedi Knights' harrowing adventure behind enemy lines.

Though the Jedi strike force completed its deadly mission into Yuuzhan Vong territory, the price of success was tragedy: not everyone made it out alive. In a daring getaway, hotshop pilot Jaina Solo stole an enemy ship, taking along her fellow survivors--and leaving behind a huge piece of her heart.

With the enemy in hot pursuit, Jaina is forced to seek haven in the unprotected, unfriendly Hapes Cluster, where the Jedi are held responsible for a past tragedy--and where the royal family has grim plans for their famous Jedi guest. Even more sinister are the intentions of the Yuuvhan Vong, desperate to capture Jaina for a hideous sacrifice.

Grief-stricken and obsessed with revenge, Jaina is blind to these threats--and to the overpowering evil dangerously close to consuming her. In the coming conflagration, Jaina will be fighting not for victory or vengeance, but fore her very being . . .

    My only complaint about this book is that I wish it featured a little more in terms of story lines. I get it's supposed to be exclusively about Jaina but its torture knowing you have to get through this whole book when all you can think about is what happened to Jacen and some of the the other characters after Star by Star. I felt like it made me feel less attached to Jaina because I had these freshly cut off and unfished story lines in my head where I wanted to know what happened next. Other than that the book itself is right up to par with all the others in the series. Its 4 out of 5 for me. Would be a 5 if it had at least touched in with Jacen at some point for even a chapter.
