Fast paced and on plot, Inferno is the tightest and most engaging novel in the LotF series. Were it not for the lobotomized villain and the contrived ending, it might have been near perfect.

As this sixth volume opens, Jacen prepares to launch a decisive strike against the Confederation fleet. To do this, he must rely on the Jedi, and to rely on them he needs leverage to insure their cooperation. And so under the guise of protecting children, he sends a Galactic Alliance Guard squadron to hold the Jedi Academy hostage, after which things begin to spin out of control, including author Troy Denning's depiction of Jacen. Once a thinking man's villain, he has been transformed into a megalomaniacal, hostage-taking, child-killing, planet-destroying madman. At some point in the story you wonder what happened - who's this Darth Caedus guy and where did _he_ come from?

Where Caedus is laughable, Luke is again human, rescued from the sidelines where he spent the previous five volumes as an inefficient and ineffective politician and parent. Now center stage, he leads the Jedi out from under Jacen's nominal control, helps forge a new political alliance to try and contain his increasingly bizarre nephew, and personally takes the fight directly to Caedus. Sadly, this knock-down, drag-out concludes in a contrivance that can only have been intended to string out the series. Battered, bruised, and with a knife stuck between his shoulder blades, Jacen lays waiting for a death blow, one Ben is ready to deliver. Luke stops him, though, and the two walk away to wait for a moment when "the time is right.

And so, here we are, book six of Legacy of the Force.

Jacen, who became Darth Caedus in the last novel, is on a rampage, killing kids and blowing things up real nice-like. His mom and dad, his nephew, and the rest of the Jedi are intent on stopping him. But more on that later.

The quality of Inferno is much better than the previous entries, most notably in the battle scenes. The space battles are exciting and well-described, not at all the boring time killers they were in many of the previous novels; this goes doubly so for the lightsaber duels, which are described in epic terms that remind one of the speed and finesse found in the prequel trilogy. Based on this alone the book is worth the purchase.

The story and characters, however, are a different matter. For one, Jacen is now a complete fool, as per Del Ray's wishes. Not once, not twice, but three times someone gets the drop on him, culminating in a cartoon-like rant about "The oldest trick in the book" while someone stalks him from behind. When he's not acting a fool, he's psychotic, torturing children and burning planets. Oddly enough, this is still nothing in the neighborhood of Kyp Durron, slayer of billions, who sits on the Jedi Council.

From day one, Jacen was ostracized from the Jedi and from his family for being too ruthless, never mind that he was basically right about a certain ruthlessness being needed to safeguard the galaxy. Instead of reaching out to him and perhaps preventing his fall to the dark side, they treat him with a contempt that culminated in a complete cutting of ties because he accidentally killed a prisoner. From that point on, the stories begin and end with his friends and family gleefully plotting his demise.

I'm going with three of five stars because, although I enjoyed the book, many things about it irk me to no end. Mild spoilers ahead, so beware.
This could have been the end of the series, yet the we-want-to-sell-3-more-books idea prevails.

Irksome point 1: Jacen's characterization throughout the series. The authors have thus far tried to lead him slowly to the dark side. I even half-buy a third of their crappy rationalization. Several plot points leave me stunned by the sheer stupidity. Jacen Solo was a freaking awesome character by the end of the NJO, he even had sense through that flipping awful Swarm War series, then all of a sudden in LOTF he's Mr. I'm-a-man-I-can-take-on-the-galaxy by sacrificing all about me, I'll preserve peace.

Saving Grace 1: Jaina seems fully back to her senses, thank the force. She even gets one whole nice long scene to show she really is a Jedi.

Irksome point 2: Alema Rar. Ever since the force-forsaken Swarm War series I've disliked her character. She's just painful to read. "We" this, "balance" that, "kill Leia" the other. Aaaarrrrggghhh. Sorry, I'm usually more articulate than that, but she's like a rash that won't go away in any TD book.

Saving Grace 2: Troy Denning's descriptions are at times brilliant.

Irksome point 3: Tahiri Veila. How many years have passed since Anakin's death? Yes, she loved deeply, but one would think her Jedi training would have given her a better measure of peace than this book implies. It's hard to believe that her only option of finding peace is to turn to Jacen and force-flowing to find Anakin again. She knew Anakin like she knew herself, or so we're lead to believe. Yet she's willing to do many things Anakin wouldn't have condoned. Sure.
