Star Wars: The New Jedi Order - Balance Point
  • Star Wars: The New Jedi Order - Balance Point

  • In the aftermath of one tragedy, will a
    young Jedi’s search for redemption lead
    to yet another?

    There is no place else to cannel the flood of
    refugees fleeing the murderous Yuuzhan Vong but
    the overcrowded planet Duro poisoned by
    centuries of technological excess. Fortunately a
    deal struck: In exchange for a new home, the
    refugees will work to restore the planet to health
    under the watchful eye of Lei Organa Solo.

    While tempers flare between the Duros and the
    New republic, Han Solo, his son, Jacen and the
    Ryn called Droma arrive to keep the peace. They
    are unaware that Leia is on Duro…and that Luke,
    Mara and Anakin are on their way, searching for a
    missing Jedi apprentice. And none realize that the
    Yuuzhan Vong have chosen this embattled planet
    as the next target in their brutal coreward thrust.

    Now, as the fragile stability on Duro threatens to
    collapse into violence, Jaen Solo must face his
    greatest dilemma: At what point does the use of
    power become aggression? Whatever he decides,
    his next step could tip the galaxy’s destiny toward
    the light or toward the darkness-with the life of
    someone he loves hanging in the balance…
