A year after the events of The Joiner King, the threat of Dark Nest has appeared again. Sent to investigate, the Skywalkers and Solos visit the Utegeta Nebula, the new home of the Killiks. Confronting UnaThul with their concerns with Dark Nest, things go unexpectedly wrong when they find themselves accused of aiding in the mysterious attacks on Killiks nests. Han and Luke stay behind to look into the source of the attacks and find more answers about Dark Nests, while Mara and Leia are sent back.

Summoned by Queen Mother Tenel Ka to Hapes, Jacen Solo finds he is responsible to protect a special secret that she reveals to him. An attack by the former queen of Hapes in alliance with Dark Nest, alerts him to danger they face. Jacen is also the recipient of visions that show the looming disaster of another galactic war.

The Unseen Queen was an excellent second book in the Dark Nest series. The pace was a little slower than in the Joiner King but that's normal for a middle book. I love the way Denning has added the scenes where Luke discovers the recordings R2 has of Anakin and Padme. Leia's involvement in a more Jedi capacity has also been great to see. I'm looking forward to reading the final book in Dark Nest, The Swarm War.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In many subtle ways, Troy Denning analyses what it means to be a Jedi. Not out and out, like in "Traitor" by Matthew Stover , but in a far more elegant fashion.

The book first shows us how Luke Skywalker's life is a constant struggle against his weaknesses. Luke learns about his parents, thus neatly tying this book to ROTS. But mainly, two revelations: Luke learns that the only real limitation he has is DOUBT. He also learns that while he has a strong moral compass, not all the other Jedi do.

Luke's courage and faith in the Light shine through his actions in the book. His is the path of the True Jedi.By that, i don't mean necessarily the Jedi of the Old Republic. However hard everyone else has been trying to improve on the Jedi Order, Luke is THERE already-he's become the greatest Jedi Master in the Galaxy. And from the "Swarm War" synopsis, we see that he's going to show us what he is pretty soon.

We see a lot of Saba Sebatyne's quirkiness, Troy Denning really writes a MEAN BARABEL!! Leia is well on her way to becoming a

full fledged Jedi. Choosing Saba as her Master was the perfect decision to make. We're gonna see some character complexity from now on.

And also, we get to see a Han-Luke team-up, which I don't think we've seen for a looooong time.

We see that however greatly a Jedi understands the Force, he himself is still fallible. I'm talking about Jacen here, who has started to justify serving himself by saying that he's serving the Force, and that it's the same thing. By his own definition from Dark Nest I, Jacen's now slipping to the Dark Side. Will he be another Ankain Skywalker? Is the Force dooming these cycles of Light and Dark to repeat?

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As with most trilogies, it is up to the second part to carry on the story, while setting up a satisfying conclusion. Indeed, The Unseen Queen does an excellent job of carrying on the story arc established in The Joiner King (unrest between the Chiss and Killiks, Leia taking up the role of Jedi, Luke's examination of the Jedi Order's responsiblities and moral code, and more). There were however a few moments where the reader is left wondering if we've been this route before. While I do admire Denning's incorporation of revelation from Revenge of the Sith, one has to acknowledge that some plot points mirror it a bit much (Anakin and Jacen's parenthood, Palpatine/Omas's attempts to control the counsel, justification of peace for commiting otherwise truly dark acts, etc.). As I've made mention, I for one appreciate it, and think the novel was quite well written. However for those who dislike cyclical plotpoints such as I've described may feel otherwise. All in all, an excellent read and a worthy setup for what looks to be a satisfying conclusion.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's been one year since the encounter with the Killiks and the bugs are becoming a problem for the galaxy. They're blaming Han and Leia for issues with their new homeworlds, their "membrosia" is causing drunken stupors everywhere, and the Gorog "Dark Nest" is out to kill Mara. Looking for answers, our heroes travel to the new Killik world and adventures ensue.

This book starts out GREAT! It was giving me goosebumps to read some of the revelations. Luke views more of Artoo's hidden files, we learn something VERY interesting about Jacen, and Mara revisits her past exploits with the Emperor. All good stuff. But it doesn't seem to last. The characters aren't very deep here- there isn't enough about their reactions to shocking circumstances (especially Jacen- he's very nonchalant about something no one would be nonchalant about.) There's so much soap-opera drama potential that kind of gets shrugged off. The ending left me less than satisfied, but not in the good way the second in a trilogy often does. It didn't really leave me hanging, it just left me with unanswered questions.

I am ready for the third book, though. Overall, this trilogy is entertaining, and I couldn't ask for more!
