Format: Hardcover
I have had mixed feelings about this series from the outset. "Outcast" felt like it was holding too much back but "Abyss" was very good, as was "Allies". "Backlash", while an interesting read, took the plot no further. Unfortunately, the plot starts getting very repetitive and predictable by the time we reach "Vortex" and "Conviction" as there are only so many times Luke can fail to defeat Abeloth or she takes another form. Thankfully, however, this problem is avoided in "Ascension" where many of the major subplots of the series at last come together (such as Ben and Vestara's relationship and Moff Lecerson's planned coup) and without having to engage in another pointless confrontation with Abeloth. Golding writes well and "Ascension" consitutes a solid penultimate volume to the series leaving readers desperate to discover the ending in "Apocalypse." In "Ascension" the Jedi Order stuggles to hold together the Galactic Alliance as they try to restore political stabilty, but the conspiracy of Lecerson is executed and Abeloth jeopardises everybody's plans in her quest to become a goddess. The one plot element that I felt was a bit rushed and stragetically absurd was - SPOILER - when Luke decides the Jedi should leave Coruscant in order to bait Abeloth and the Sith to take over in the hope he can trap them on the planet, thereby allowing him to destroy them both at once. Pehaps this plan will work, but given the ending scene of the book, it doesn't look like it. "Ascension" ends on a dark note, which, for the first real time in the entire series so far, hints at why the series is called "Fate of the Jedi".

Fate of the Jedi is a great series. This book was my least favourite of the series though. The pace of the book is a hyperspace speed. Usually this would be great but it felt like the book was a rushed to cram in as many revelations and secretes and conspires as possible. Christie Golden was the first to really push the boundaries of Ben and Vestara's attraction; she continues this in this book.

There are little touches I did like in this book. Like the characters eating food that are more recognisable then just making up new names for things. This is good. I even liked that fact that some of the conspirators who were around from the time of Palpetine still have the speiciesist attitude. The prefer humans to all other species. Small touches like this do add to the believability.

The story. Riding the wave of their huge victories form the last 2 book, Luke leads the Jedi on a mission to destroy the ancient Dark Side being called Abeloth. Using this high risk stagey of taking all available Jedi could leave open to a counter attack. The lost Tribe of the Sith have become his second priority, could he have underestimated them. Luke's character seem to alternate between a naive doting father, to a ruthless (Sith like) strategist willing to sacrifice his own family.

I have to disagree with Master Saba. I think the Sith are stupid. Really who else could the mystery senator be? I don't think there is a ready anywhere who would not have guessed this from the first meeting between them and the Sith. That was a bit of a waste of a big reveal for the last page.

Vestara has a really hard time in this book. She has to make hard choices about who she was, who she is and most of all who she want to become, then if that is even possible.

Full of all sorts of twists, turns and political machinations as the last 4 in the series, this book has a great plot, excellent use of the narrative and character interaction that is more believable than a lot of non sci-fi books I have read in the past. This chapter of the series, the penultimate in the 9 book set, forgoes a rigorous plot in exchange for setting events into motion that will be brought to a climax in the finale. Despite this, it is still gripping, interesting, and very, very exciting. I can't wait for the outcome.

After reading the legacy era of the books which I thoroughly enjoyed, I was anxious to see how these books were. I enjoyed these easily as much as the legacy era and they were a great continuation of story. I can't wait for the future books in the storyline. The full set may be expensive for each era of books however the money was well spent and I haven't had this much fun reading in a long time.
Would recommend to anyone interested in star wars books or star wars itself these are such an insight into the story.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. A few twists and turns, some expected others, not so much. Looking forward to completing the series with the next book.

If you've been reading the extended universe series, then you'll know the Fate of the Jedi books are a bit tough to get to grips with initially but the way the story has developed, the family banter between Ben and Luke and the other aspects that characters go through makes these a great read, even if you weren't a big time fan.
