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.

Finally the Legacy of the Force series begins to move along. Inferno by Troy Denning is the sixth book in the series with three more to go. Up until this point the books have been marked by way too much concern about Jedi philosophy and how to do things the right way. In the meantime Jacen Solo, now Darth Caedus, has run wild, taken complete control of the Galactic Alliance, made the required sacrifice, and become a Sith. Everyone knows they have to stop him, but they seem unwilling to take the next step beyond the rules of Jedi doctrine to get the job done.

The murder of a major character by Jacen was an important loss to the saga of Star Wars and to the remaining non-Sith characters but really not much of a personal sacrifice for Jacen. I won’t mention the name of the person killed. Suffice it to say that it was a major character. Mr. Denning has included an excellent funeral scene and does a good job of describing the agony felt by some of the main characters who remain.

Through most of the book Jacen seems unstoppable and increasingly evil. He goes so far as to have his soldiers take over the Jedi Academy at Ossus, taking the Jedi children hostage, and showing no remorse at any action he deems necessary. He ultimately does have some people stand up against him, and the book ends with a huge fight involving Jacen against Luke and son Ben. All of the action scenes are well-written. Alema Rar continues to pop up and cause trouble. The plot definitely continues to thicken. I hope that will continue in the last three books of Legacy of the Force.

Inferno is a strong entry in the Legacy series, featuring many of the best elements of Star Wars: light v. dark, space combat, lightsaber duels, heartbreaking betrayal, and Wookiees! It’s a thrilling read – leaving you turning the page anxiously with every plot thread. Looking at Legacy as a whole, this is one of the best, most cohesive novels. In particular, I was glad to see Alema’s Korriban plot. I think it introduced an element of plot that was needed for this series. Ultimately, Inferno takes many of the main characters to pivotal, decisive moments surrounding their support of Jacen and the Galactic Alliance. If you’re hesitant about reading Legacy for whatever reason, I’d venture into it so that you can experience the ride this novel offers.

For SWEU fans, Inferno blends just the right amount of intrigue, lightsaber duels, and space battles, but the strength of any book is in its characters. Luke and Ben must deal with the aftermath of Mara's death. Jacen completes his transformation, and Tenel Ka begins to see the light. Finally, Han and Leia must face the truth about Jacen. It was inevitable but heartbreaking.

The only plot weakness was in the Sith. All of a sudden there are a whole bunch of them. They've been sitting around *hiding* since the days of Palpatine, directing the action from afar. I regret that they may become important elements of the series; because right now, they feel contrived.

So much happens, but the experience was not rushed. An excellent read, I could not put it down.

At the end of the Kindle edition, there is an interview with the authors Karen Traviss, Troy Denning, and Aaron Allston. I always enjoy reading about what goes into a book or series, especially with so many authors working on it at once. It was enlightening to see the thought processes that went into writing "Legacy of the Force" and the death of Mara Jade, and what they thought about it. The interview added a lot of insight and I'm glad I read it.
