Star Wars: The New Jedi Order Series, Book 9
The Star Wars epic continues its dazzling space odyssey in The New Jedi Order–as Luke and Mara, Leia and Han, and others battle the mighty enemy from beyond the galactic rim.

The brutal Yuuzhan Vong are scouring the universe for Jedi to slaughter. With no help from the divided New Republic, the Jedi stand alone against their seemingly invincible foe. Han and Leia Organa Solo risk deadly consequences with their controversial tactics to bolster the Jedi resistance. After uncovering a new Yuuzhan Vong menace, Anakin and Tahiri find themselves wanted for murder by the Peace Brigade. To avoid capture, they jump into hyperspace . . . and into trouble far graver.

Hunted by the Yuuzhan Vong, wanted as criminals by the New Republic, and with unrest stirring within their own ranks, the Jedi find peril everywhere they turn. But even in the midst of despair, while the most fiercest battle of all looms on the horizon, hope arises with the birth of one very special child. . . .

Excerpts-
  • From the book

    Chapter One

    "You've had worse ideas, Luke," Mara Jade Skywalker
    reluctantly admitted, nodding her head back so the sunlight fell on her face and her deep red-gold tresses
    trailed behind her. Posed that way, eyes closed, framed against the blue line of the sea, her beauty closed
    Luke's throat for a moment.

    Mara's green eyes opened, and she looked at him with a
    sort of wistful fondness before arching a cynical brow.

    "Getting all fatherly on me again?"

    "No," he said softly. "Just thinking how ridiculously
    lucky I am."

    "Hey. I'm the one with the hormone swings. You aren't
    trying to one-up me, are you?" But she took his hand
    and gave it a squeeze. "Come on," she said. "Let's walk a
    bit more."

    "You sure you're up to it?"

    "What, you want to carry me? Of course I'm up to it. I'm
    pregnant, not hamstrung. You think it would be better for
    our kid if I spent all day lying around sucking on oorp?"

    "I just thought you wanted to relax."

    "Absolutely. And this is relaxing. Us, all alone, on a beautiful
    island. Well, sort of an island. Come on."

    The beach was warm beneath Luke's bare feet. He had
    been reluctant to agree to going shoeless, but Mara had insisted
    that's what one did on a beach. He found, to his surprise,
    that it reminded him pleasantly of his boyhood on
    Tatooine. Back then, in the relative cool of early evening—
    one of those rare periods when both blazing suns were
    nearly set—sometimes he would take his shoes off and feel
    the still-warm sand between his toes. Not when Uncle Owen
    was looking, of course, because the old man would launch
    into an explanation of what shoes were for in the first place,
    about the valuable moisture Luke was losing though his
    soles.

    For an instant, he could almost hear his uncle's voice and
    smell Aunt Beru's giju stew. He had an urge to put his shoes
    back on.

    Owen and Beru Lars had been the first personal casualties
    in Luke Skywalker's battle against the Empire. He wondered
    if they had known why they died.

    He missed them. Anakin Skywalker may have been his
    father, but the Lars had been his parents.

    "I wonder how Han and Leia are doing?" Mara wondered
    aloud, interrupting his reverie.

    "I'm sure they're fine. They've only been gone a few
    days."

    "I wonder if Jacen should have gone with them?"

    "Why not? He's proven himself capable often enough.
    And they're his parents. Besides, with half the galaxy after
    him, it's better he stay on the move."

    "Right. I only meant it makes things worse for Jaina. It's
    hard on her, doing nothing, knowing her brother is out
    fighting the fight."

    "I know. But Rogue Squadron will probably call her up
    pretty soon."

    "Sure," Mara replied. "Sure they will." She sounded far
    from convinced.

    "You don't think so?" Luke asked.

    "No. I think they would like to, but her Jedi training
    makes her too much of a political liability right now."

    "When did the Rogues ever care about politics? Has
    someone said this to you?"

    "Not in so many words, but I hear things, and I'm trained
    to listen to the words behind the words. I hope I'm wrong,
    for Jaina's sake."

    Her feelings brushed Luke in the Force, running a troubled
    harmony to her assertion.

    "Mara," Luke said, "my love, while I'll believe you
    when you say picking up parasites on a strange beach is
    relaxing—"

    "Nonsense. This sand is as sterile as an isolation lab. It's
    perfectly safe to walk barefoot. And you like the feel of it."

    "If you say so. But I forbid any...
