From the Inside Flap

The dazzling Star Wars space adventure continues in The New Jedi Order as Luke Skywalker, Anakin Solo, Mara Jade Skywalker, and others battle their deadliest enemy in a tale of nonstop action, shadowy evil, and spectacular triumph?

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? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I just picked up the ones I didn't have and have not read this book as yet but it looks good.
This story had what any good series book should have: Plot and character development both within the book and as a part of the series.
Cian Beirdd
Conquest by Greg Keyes is the first book in the Edge of Victory duology and the seventh book in the New Jedi Order series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
`Conquest' is the shortest novel in the New Jedi Order line thus far, but don't let that discourage you - it's also in many important ways one of the best. Like `Hero's Trial' before it, `Conquest' follows only one character, Anakin this time, through the bulk of the book. Though it is short, this entry reveals more to us about the Vong as a people, as a culture, than any three novels before it. In addition, it's nice finally to see a New Jedi Order novel that actually focuses on the Jedi. Greg Keyes certainly isn't the best author who's been inducted into the Star Wars fold recently, but he definitely *is* one of the most engaging. At times, Keyes' style seemed a little "fan fiction-ish" rather than "profic." The sentence structure and word choice sometimes just didn't feel professional, but that is easily overlooked because it didn't detract from the novel, it was just different.
The plot is straightforward: Several months after Yuuzhan Vong Warmaster Tsavong Lah's offering to end the invasion if all the Jedi are turned over to him, the Peace Brigade, as well as planetfuls of desperate people near the path of the invasion route, are out hunting Jedi - pretty much completely unhindered by the New Republic government. Because of this, the schism that has been growing between the Jedi deepens drastically. Figuring that Yavin IV, home of the Jedi Academy, will be a Vong target, Luke sends Karrde to evacuate the trainees, but Anakin knows he won't get there in time, and rushes off, against Luke's direct orders, to help his friends. He arrives in the Yavin system to find that Karrde has not yet arrived, but the Peace Brigade has. Thus begins Anakin's trials and tribulations, which will last the rest of the book.

Well, I'll admit that when I started this book, I wasn't expecting much. Mostly because I liked Balance Point a whole lot, and suspected that anything coming immediately after it would be eclipsed by it from birth. Man, was I wrong! While this book didn't have as large and diverse a cast of main characters, or anywhere near as complex a plot, the overall writing and style was definitely on a par with anything that came before it! The scene descriptions were breathtaking, the death of a certain character heartbreaking (at least if you've read Junior Jedi Knights), and the battle scenes nerve-bending, without being overly bloodthirsty (unlike some others I could mention). I am actually quite mystified at why some would say this book is no more than a glorified Young Jedi Knights novel. To me that's partly what made it so enjoyable, since it followed up on characters and events that were left hanging in that series, yet continuing the flow of this series without too many confusing things being thrown in at once. The main focus of this book was Anakin Solo, which was cool, since he has always (from the day of his birth) been shunted aside and practically ignored at times in favor of his dynamic and outgoing brother and sister, and one can see how he's maturing. Anyway, the Vong Warmaster has called for the heads of all the Jedi, (particularly Jacen's) saying that if all of the remaining Jedi are turned over to them, they will stop their viscous pummeling of New Republic forces. Unfortunately, many citizens of the New Republic, having been terrified into a frenzy, are dumb enough to believe the ultimatum, and so eagerly begin to hunt Jedi, while the fractitious New Republic government simply looks the other way.Read more ›

The Yuuzhan Vong invaders have devastated many planets and slaughtered countless innocents. Now Warmaster Tsavong Lah has demanded the heads of all the Jedi. So desperate for survival that they are willing to believe anything, the people of the galaxy are ready to deliver into Yuuzhan Vong hands the Jedi, who have become scapegoats. None are more willing to hand over the Jedi than the Peace Brigade. Sixteen-year-old Anakin Solo is strong in the Force, strong enough to be a powerful Jedi. But he is also headstrong and impatient. When he and his older brother and sister come to the conclusion that the Jedi Academy may be a target of the Peace Brigade, he defies orders and leaves for Yavin IV. He especially fears for Tahiri, his best friend from childhood, who is currently at the Academy. He lands on Yavin IV to find a Peace Brigade fleet in the system and Yuuzhan Vong ships on the way. Anakin helps to hide the students and then plans to create a diversion and flee, but his plan is hindered by Tahiri and two other students, who stay behind against Anakin's orders. When Tahiri is captured and handed over to the Vong, Anakin fears for her life. But it's not Tahiri's life that's at risk, for the Yuuzhan Vong have a horrifying plan for her - to make her one of their own. This was a thrilling addition to the New Jedi Order series that I reccomend to all Star Wars fans.

Though 'Conquest' by it's moniker looks like it's part one of a two novel series by Mr. Keyes, it is indeed a stand alone self contained novel with events taking place shortly after 'Balance Point'.
Our novel starts with a great prologue which takes the reader bouncing about the galaxy and peering in on the fate of certain Jedi characters we have become familiar with over the last few years in print media...and the outcome is pretty dim. This sets the tone and back story for events that are being discussed within the government of the New Republic, more specifically between Luke Skywalker and the Bothan, Fey'la.
Tensions arise and fissures deepen within the Jedi ranks as Kyp Durron's (and his followers) see events and Jedi responses different from what appears to be a passive Luke. It seems the Vong want Jacen Solo and all Jedi in return for no more aggression. While both sides of the Jedi know this is a hollow promise from the alien invaders, the choice to bring the war to them or to defend the galaxy in a hotly debated subject. But as these events are taking place, the Vong have their sights set on Yavin 4 and the Jedi academy there...and their targets: the unprotected Jedi children.
Here is where the book really begins. Anakin, in secret and against the wishes of Uncle Luke races to Yavin to help evacuate and protect the children. Upon entering Yavin's system, Anakin makes a startling discovery that involves the Peace Brigade and is forced to land. Shortly thereafter the Vong show up, and Anakin and a hand full of children are on the run through the jungles of Yavin 4. Here, Anakin's best friend Tahiri (and Jedi in training) is captured and brought to the 'Shapers' for experimentation.
