From the Inside Flap

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. . . .

I reccomend this book to all Star Wars fans.
Rebecca Herman
Unfortunately, Keyes bites off just a little too much and, with the limited page count, the book feels a little cramped.

Luke and the very pregnant Mara flee Coruscant as the Senate issues an arrest order for Luke.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The much-awaited sequel to Keyes' Conquest, Rebirth is worth reading even as a stand-alone. In this novel, Han and Leia (seem to) patch things up and the death of Chewbacca is now a quiet ache in both their lives. Anakin explores his relationship with Tahiri, and takes Corran Horn, who went into hiding after the Ithor disaster, along for the ride. Jacen comes to grips with his views on the Force, seeing just how arrogant he was, fighting alongside his mother and father in their own war against the Peace Brigade, the galaxy's most vengeful collaborators. On the Vong side, Nen Yim, disgraced shaper adept, has been exiled to a ship of disgraced Yuuzhan Vong, a ship that is now dying. However, she receives a visit from a Master Shaper who is more than he seems, leading Nen Yim further on the path towards murder and greater heresy. Also, Vergere returns...but not to the New Republic. She boards the Sunulok to meet with Warmaster Lah in an attempt to capture Jacen Solo aboard the Millenium Falcon. And not to be outdone, Mara comes to term with her pregnancy (literally) and with the birth will either be a new hope, or a greater darkness than the Jedi currently face. Nonstop action, coupled with Keyes' elegant prose, makes Rebirth the standout novel of NJO so far. Highly recommended to the fans of The New Jedi Order and those who just like things the way they were.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After reading the first several books of the New Jedi Order I found myself looking for a book more epic in scope, similar to Timothy Zahn's first trilogy and the first book of the series, Vector Prime. Balance Point and Edge of Victory I were both very close to this mark, but couldn't seem to break through.
In comes Gregory Keyes's new book Edge of Victory II: Rebirth, with its multiple plot lines that keep you enthralled. My favorite part of the book was the scenes with Luke and Mara, they seem to be ignored in some of the more recent books. In this book Luke is shown as caring and prudent character, not as a super-powerful Jedi Master. The action occurs basically in the all the rest of the scenes with the various other main characters, especially with Anakin, Jacen, and Jaina. Lots of star fights and some hand-to-hand combats keep the book interesting, while vague chapter ending keep you eagerly wanting more. The book ends with a couple twists that should make for a more interesting saga through out.
Take note everyone this is the way a Star Wars book should be written, talk about the new characters, while not forgetting the old characters that made the original so memorable and popular. Excellent read, and though it is a page turner, I would not exactly call it an epic, though it sets up the series to become epic in scope. Hopefully the next book will be as good as this, and I will definetly continue reading. Defintely recommended for fans and non-fans alike.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Unlike it's predecessor, Conquest, this book dealt with multiple plotlines, but the author handled all of them excellently, especially considering the book's short length. Luke and a very pregnant Mara are awaiting the birth of their son, but just as Mara's Yuuzhan Vong disease begins to effect her again, they are forced to flee Coruscant to avoid arrest. Anakin, Tahiri, and Corran go on what should be a simple supply run for the Errant Venture, but run into the Peace Brigade and must flee into hyperspace. Kyp convinces Jaina and Rogue Squadron to help him destroy a new Vong superweapon located at Sernpidal. Han, Leia, and Jacen are on a mission to set up a system to bring people and information out of occupied territory. And meanwhile, among the Yuuzhan Vong, Nem Yim continues her heresy. In my opinion, this was one of the best books from the New Jedi Order series. I especially enjoyed reading about Luke, Mara, and their child, and Anakin and Tahiri's growing romance was very cute. I reccomend this book to all Star Wars fans.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Continuing from his previous novel in the New Jedi Order (NJO) series, Greg Keyes furthers the New Republic's and, more importantly, the Jedi's struggle against the Yuuzhan Vong. It is a dark time for the Jedi, taking a large toll on their ranks. In accord with the Vong's demands, the Jedi are being rounded up and given as appeasement to the Vong. The view of the Jedi in the New Republic further deteriorates, as Luke and Mara have arrest warrants issued by the Senate. As in the previous books in this series, much focus is given to the younger Jedi, Jacen, Jaina, Anakin, and Tahiri, in particular. We also get a nice return in the presence of Corran Horn as he attempts to rein in two of the kids. There are also the requisite battle scenes between Jedi and Vong, although on a much lesser scale than earlier parts of the series. This is mostly due to the Vong maintaining the present state of the invasion and not furthering their conquest. A pivotal point of this book is Mara's plight. She learns that the synthesized medication she is taking is dangerous for her unborn child, so she must decide whether to save herself or her baby. I'm sure you can guess her chosen path. Her importance not only to Luke, but to the kids as well, is underscored very well in this respect. Another side quest is the search for a safe haven for the now-hunted Jedi, especially the children from the academy. Though we are not privy to the search itself, the nature of the chosen destination is revealed, and seems like a nice choice, given the pattern of Vong (and Republic) thought. I have to say that I recommend this book as a nice contribution to the NJO series. It seems to me that something big is building, and the crescendo is coming soon. If you like Star Wars, and especially any of the NJO series, you will appreciate this one too.
