The sixth in a nine-part series finds Luke and Ben continuing their uneasy alliance with the Sith as they investigate the mysterious history of Abeloth, hoping to find out how she caused the Jedi to go mad and how she was freed from her prison. On Coruscant, Leia and Han lead a rescue mission to get the two Horns out of their carbonite prison, thus bringing the inevitable confrontation between the Jedi and Admiral Daala ever closer. Out on the Rim, the slave unrest looks like it might become an outright uprising. Denning does an excellent job moving the action forward, working with the multiple plotlines introduced in the previous five books and adding new elements that will excite fans eager for books seven, eight, and nine. As usual, there is plenty of action and excitement, with the drama evenly spread among the major characters. Sure to be a popular addition to all sf collections. --Jessica Moyer
