There can be no surrender.
There will be no mercy.
It’s not just the future of the galaxy at stake—
It’s the destiny of the Force.
In the stunning finale of the epic Fate of the Jedi series, Jedi and Sith face off—with Coruscant as their battlefield. For the Sith, it’s the chance to restore their dominance over the galaxy that forgot them for so long. For Abeloth, it’s a giant step in her quest to conquer all life everywhere. For Luke Skywalker, it’s a call to arms to eradicate the Sith and their monstrous new master once and for all.
In a planetwide strike, teams of Jedi Knights take the Sith infiltrators by swift and lethal surprise. But victory against the cunning and savage Abeloth, and the terrifying endgame she has planned, is anything but certain. And as Luke, Ben, Han, Leia, Jaina, Jag, and their allies close in, the devastating truth about the dark side incarnate will be exposed—and send shock waves through the Jedi Order, the galaxy, and the Force itself.
Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Title: Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse August 4, 2012 I am really not a fan of this book. I wasn't a fan of Fate of the Jedi in general. It was a foil ball of bits and pieces of ideas that the authors had that just never fell into place. Where the NJO was a 19 book series that rarely disapointed, Fate of the Jedi struggled to get anything right.

What a mess...
Reviewer: A reader from VICTORIA, BC CAN
Without spoiling too much, we're given Abeloth's mythology at last. It only took 9 books. Luke of course is tasked to kill her again a few times. Much like he did in the last few FOTJ books. The real problem with the book is that it is absolute nonstop action. That sounds enticing even to me but it's not a good thing when a near 400 page book is literally all action with no breaks. No moments of reflection and little thought or meditation from Luke's famed Order.
The Lost Tribe of the Sith are penetrating Coruscant, the Jedi Temple and the government. Took them two years. It took Bane's order 1000 years but who's counting? It wouldn't bother me if the Lost Tribe didn't come off as red shirts with little or no character and absolutely no real threat to Luke's Jedi. That there are literally a planet full of these extras ensures that they will be around to bother the Jedi like aphids for eras to come. Dang if they weren't so lame!
I do give props to Vestara Khai. She's a well crafted and interesting character who I look forward to reading about in books to come. I also enjoyed Ben's development.
Other than that, the explicit and neverending violence was a huge turnoff for me. This book was bereft of catharsis and magic. It was a slaughter and deviates hugely from Lucas' initial idea of what Star Wars once was.
