the new republic is frantic. they yuuzhan are destroying worldsleft and right. with an enemy that is so merciless in its destruction of complete planets, leia is sent to the hapes sectorto try and draw them into the war to turn the tide of battle.as another tactic, anakin and jacen are recruited to try and restart centerpoint station, which is a mighty powerful and deadly weapon that can be your greatest weapon or a great causeof destruction. this book has lots of excitement and adventure and it is nice to see the diffrent characters that we have cometo love grow and mature as this horrible war takes on more deadlier consequences.

Another superb New Jedi Order book

Agents of Chaos 2: Jedi Eclipse was a great book to add to the New Jedi Order series. Even as I write this it has been one hour since I finished the book, in case any of you wanted to know. I must admit that you really wouldn't be missing much if you skipped this book, because after everything that transpires, you are still left at square one. Han Solo, accompanied by his new Ryn friend Droma, is searching the galaxy for Droma's clanmates who were seperated from after after the events of Agents of Chaos 1: Hero's Trial. Elsewhere, Leia seeks the help of some old friends, namely the Hapan Cluster, to aid in the war against the never stopping Yuuzhan Vong. Meanwhile the Jedi Knights, such as Jacen, Anakin, Kyp Durron, and others all partake in their own missions. With this book brings the possibility that the New Republic may finally have a chance at winning the war against the Yuuzhan Vong if they can only accomplish one goal: restart the infamous Centerpoint Station. At the end all these events come down to one big climax which will leave you hanging on every page, unable to put the book down. A great read for Star Wars fans, especially those who have been following the NJO series.

Great book.

This a must read book. A great continuation from Hero's Trial. Luceno had a great introduction to the Star Wars universe. I hope James Luceno follows up with many more Star Wars novels. Even though the Yuuzhan Vong on the cover looks totally different than any other picture in the New Jedi Order. If you enjoy sci-fi thrillers tahn this book is defianltely for you.

Exciting conclusion to the Agents of Chaos duo.

This book picks up two months after Hero's Trial left off. Leia is overseeing the evacuation of worlds targeted by the Yuuzhan Vong invaders. Han and Droma are still searching for Droma's relatives. The Jedi Knights are split in two about how to best fight the Vong. Jedi Wurth Skidder has undertaken a dangerous undercover mission on a Vong ship. And while their sister Jaina is flying with Rogue Squadron, Jacen and Anakin Solo have gone to the Correlian system to attempt to rearm Centerpoint Station. The New Republic hopes to lure the Vong fleet to the Correlian System by making it appear virtually defenseless, then decimating the fleet using Centerpoint and the planetery repulsors in the system. This was an exciting conclusion to Hero's Trial, and an excellant addition to the New Jedi Order storyline. The only real problem I had with the book was the exclusion of Mara and Jaina, two of my favorite characters. It's ridiculous that Mara would just sit their on Coruscant hoping her disease was gone, and Jaina could have easily been added into the story by having Rogue Squadron participate in some of the space battles. But the book was an overall great read, nonetheless. I'm counting the days until I get Balance Point.

Any thought to where this is going?

James Luceno has contributed a superlative chapter into a saga that has stretched over 4 movies, and over 140 books in different forms. I have no idea to what degree the dozens of Authors collaborate on these written episodes, but their coordination of events, lack of contradiction, and seamless plot integration is almost uncanny. Many single volume tales contradict themselves, but George Lucas maintains an incredibly high standard, in each work, and the epic as a whole.The genetic weapons of the Yuuzhan Vong continue to be introduced without repetition, and with a cleverness that sets the standard for original Science Fiction. As I read this work I kept thinking the visual display these stories would make on a screen, visual experiences we likely will never see. I suppose a long shot hope would be that the younger of the Lucas clan would continue their father's work someday.When this all started in The New Hope, The Rebel Alliance was definitely on the razor's edge of defeat. This series that is certainly dark tragedy continues to escalate in violence, spread over rapidly increasing star systems, and few survive the experience. The New Republic is being lead by a council that gets more inept, or willfully negligent with each installment, The Jedi are not what we originally thought them to be, at least so far, and there is almost no cohesion except for the Yuuzhan Vong. These fractured alliances range from the galactic to the very personal.We already know where Episode III will leave us, and now after Episode VI, this new series is as dark as anything we have seen. Chewbacca has been killed, Jedi too have died, and other main characters are sure to follow. What a Jedi is supposed to be gets more confusing each time, will Anakin once again step to the forefront, or will his more passive Brother influence events?Whatever has brought this new enemy to the New Republic is also unveiling more of itself and its structure. Does anyone else find their reverence for natural biologic instruments as opposed to the mechanical, as conflicting with their self abuse, the mutilation of their own bodies as I do?This series started out with a very negative bent, and has not changed its direction. While still early in the series, events will need to start unfolding soon, so that a recovery, however devastating can be executed.Who will be left standing, in control, and the truth behind these new invaders is going to be a wild ride.
