In the process, she learns something new about how to fight the alien invaders, but she must also remember that revenge is not the way of the Jedi - even which it seems the only way to fight the enemy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beware the dark side of this book! 26 Feb. 2006
After the momentous events of Star by Star, things take a bit of a breather in Dark Journey, by Elaine Cunningham. Star by Star was overloaded with characters and galaxy-spanning events, including some major changes for both the planet Coruscant (the capital planet of the Republic) and for the Solo children. This book takes a bit of a closer look at Jaina Solo. After what happened to her two brothers, she's in danger of moving to the Dark Side of the Force, and Cunningham does an effective job of giving us that story. Even better, it's not all wrapped up and Jaina will have a fight on her hands for probably the rest of the series, which makes the book even more effective.

Jaina Solo and the survivors of the mission to destroy the Force-sensitive creature the Yuuzhan Vong were using to help track and destroy the Jedi are trying to escape, but Jaina is bringing something more than the survivors back. Guilt over what happened to her brothers, as well as a desire for revenge, is causing her great problems as well as tension among the Jedi. Upon returning to Coruscant and discovering what happened there, she and her crew make for the Hapes Cluster, where the Jedi are unwelcome for what happened to a fleet of their ships in an earlier book. That is also where other refugees have arrived, including Han and Leia Solo. A tearful reunion occurs, but Leia is troubled by the feeling she has about Jaina. Will she go all the way to the other side, losing herself forever? Or will she have help from good friends as well as rivals to keep her on the good path? Whatever she decides, she will be changed forever, forging her own way, and the Vong had better not get in the way. The Vong are after Jaina for a sacrifice, thinking that she's special because she's a twin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but could be better! 15 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
Dark journey suggests long and exploritive look into the dark side in which jaina is emmersed. However what we got was a very shallow apprecaition of this side of the force. A Dark Journey it wasn't more a shaddowy fleeting walk. Aside from this there was a need for the
Skywalker / Sols clan to be envolved in her renewal. In the past characters have needed support and help to reject the dark side not so this time sadly. There could have been more character plot devlopment if this had been the case. Kyp Durrons character didn't come accross that well! I was pleased to see character development and a change of dirrestion but fundementally his role wasn't that impressive. More impressive were the usual characters of Solo and Lea, these two pollished charactes added depth and grit to the book. Colonel Fel on the other hand was not realy explored...All in all a good read but needed a bit more detail and substance 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars One half of the story? 5 Mar. 2002
It's great that you finally get to meet the real Jaina Solo as truely main character, however you get the feeling this is only half the story, and that whatever is happening to Jacen is going to be the other half. Thanks to Jaina, we see another chink in Vong's armour. Maybe they're not so invincible after all!

4.0 out of 5 stars At last a book for the girls 11 Feb. 2002
i'm not going to give the story away. Not always the easist book to follow, which has to be its biggest down point, the other being a lot of the old characters hardly being in it. The good point is that we really got to meet Jaina for the first time, and her characterisation was good, as was Kyp Durrons. This leads to another good point that the characters decisions seemed totally within character.
This is another important book in the series, with new allies for the new republic and decisions made by major characters in the series and also for the two sides. Also good was to see the Hapans given a airing, but the major bad guy's didnot figure in it much. So a enjoyable but probably could have been better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the force lightening? 25 April 2002
I had been looking forward to this book since the day I finished the cracking "Star By Star" many months ago, unfortunately it didn't live up to my anticipation. The plot was quite involved, but I don't think that it was as hard to figure out, as Elaine Cunningham believed it was. Without giving anything away, the fact that the whole book was focused on Jaina made it quite predictable as to which way the story would move.
Fast paced as the book was, Jaina's dark side battle was far too cerebral to be exciting, my feeling was she was flirting with the dark side more than actually being tempted by it. Where were the displays of Dark Side force powers that happened at the end of the previous book? I wanted people being fried with force lightening, not a "Will I, Won't I" discussion in Jaina's head! Her attitude change wasn't very believable and came across as forced, the climax was disappointing, a sterile portrayal of the battle scene, which was unfortunate as these are the very scenes that have made this series so enjoyable, but there were enough developments in the Yuuzan Vong war effort, to make this still worth buying.

Great NJO book. This one is quite different to the other books in the series - this is more of an emotional journey than an action story like many of the others. Read more
