At long last, the New York Times bestselling series that launched the Star Wars saga into the next generation and into thrilling new territory reaches its spectacular finale. Side by side, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, their children, and their comrades in the Galactic Alliance rally for their last stand against the enemy that threatens not only the galaxy, but the Force itself.

The Galactic Alliance’s hard-won success in countering the Yuuzhan Vong onslaught has proven all too brief—and the tide has turned once more to the invaders’ advantage. Having overcome the sabotage strategies of the Jedi and their allies, the marauding aliens have pushed deeper into the galaxy and subjugated more worlds in their ruthless quest for domination. Coruscant has been remade into a Yuuzhan Vong stronghold. The remnants of the resistance are struggling to form a united front. Luke, Mara, and Jacen are missing in action. Clearly the stage is set for endgame.

Now, as Han and Leia receive the chilling news that hundreds of high-ranking Galactic Alliance prisoners face slaughter in a sacrifice to the enemy’s bloodthirsty gods, Luke and his team try desperately to convince the living world of Zonama Sekot to join the Jedi’s final campaign against the Yuuzhan Vong. Yet even as they speak, a lone space station is all that stands between Alliance headquarters on Mon Calamari . . . and wave after wave of ferocious enemy forces waging their most decisive assault.

At the same time, the Jedi’s alliances throughout the galaxy are being tested—and the chances of victory jeopardized—by rogue factions determined to deploy the lethal weapon that will exterminate the Yuuzhan Vong . . . and perhaps countless other species. And among the Yuuzhan Vong themselves, the threat of revolt has reached a boiling point—as the oppressed underclass and powerful officials alike fear their Supreme Overlord’s mad actions will provoke the wrath of the gods.

Ultimately, for both the forces of invasion and resistance, too much has been sacrificed —and too much is at stake—to ever turn back. And now, nothing can stand in the way of seizing victory . . . or facing annihilation.

HAN: "I'm getting tired of surprises. There has to be another way in."
C-3PO: "Perhaps the front door."
HAN: "Yeah, we'll just go up and knock. Isn't that how you got yourself into Jabba's palace?"

BOBA FETT: "Just wanted to remind you, Solo, that my personal fight was always with the Jedi. You were nothing more than cargo."
HAN: "For what it's worth, Fett, you were never more than a nuisance."
BOBA FETT: "To better days, Captain."
HAN: "Count on it."

LEIA: "That's the tenth person who's recognized you. What is this, a gathering of your fan club?"
HAN: "Very funny."
LEIA: "No really, Han. Maybe you should have become an actor instead of a war hero. Just think of the following you'd have."

The Unifying Force is a very intense but great ending to the long New Jedi Order series.
Here we finally get to read how the Yuuzahn Vong war is resolved, and what happens to all the characters afterward. And not unexpectedly, there's a lot of action, suspense, betrayals and surprises along the way.
I thought that the book took a little while to reach its climax, and some parts felt a little long. But once things got going, the Unifying Force got hard to put down. (My favorite part was the fight between Luke, Jaina, Jacen, and Shimrra).
I think James Luceno did a fantastic job writing this book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes the New Jedi Order or hasn't read this series yet.

What an amazing finish to a 19-book long series. wonderfully woven from start to finish, with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, and the ultimate surprise ending. Those who have guessed what Zonama Sekot is are close or right, but there is still one last surprise that the Supreme Overlord has in store, which will shock all readers...
