THE GALAXY STANDS LEADERLESS. CAN THE JEDI SAVE IT—OR WILL THEIR ENEMIES ENSLAVE IT?
The toppling of ruthless Natasi Daala has left a political vacuum on Coruscant and ignited a power struggle between opposing factions racing to claim control of the Galactic Alliance. Surrounded by hidden agendas, treacherous conspiracies, and covert Sith agents, the Jedi Order must keep the government from collapsing into anarchy—while facing the combined threats of the resurgent Lost Sith Tribe, a deposed dictator bent on vengeance, and the enduring menace of Abeloth, the profoundly evil entity hungry to become a god.
“[Christie] Golden’s excellent storytelling captures the essence of the beloved space opera and should leave series followers eagerly anticipating the story’s conclusion.”— Library Journal

I didn't like it
Reviewer: A reader from VICTORIA, BC CAN
Then we go to Coruscant. Things get worse from there. Not only did I find the vast details of the political dealings from earlier books fairly boring but In Ascension, I found them just plain confusing. The characters in this book very often deviate from common sense. As for the Big 3 and Ben? Golden just doesn't "get" the characters like some authors do.
Golden hurls a multitude of sub-plots at us in the nearly 400 pages. It has that going for it. But there isn't enough time to draw out many of the events properly. Ultimately, it's just not satisfying at all. Ascension just doesn't feel Star Warsy. A lot of Golden's dialogue falls flat. Jokes feel out of place and are often plain childish. Both Omen and Allies satisfied me much more and I wasn't overly wowed by either of those.
I'd say this is the worst of the Fate of the Jedi books but if you've made it this far, you might as well go all the way and read Apocalypse.
