Book Description

This is the era of Luke Skywalker's legacy: the Jedi Master has unified the order into a cohesive group of powerful Jedi Knights. However, as this era begins, planetary interests threaten to disrupt this time of relative peace and Luke is plagued by visions of an approaching darkness.
Melding the galaxy into one cohesive political whole after the savage war with the Yuuzhan Vong is not the easiest task, and already some worlds are chafing under the demands of the new government. Civil war may be brewing, and the Skywalker-Solo clan find that they might not all be on the same side. Meanwhile, evil is rising again--out of the best intentions--and it looks like the legacy of the Skywalkers may come full circle...

5.0 out of 5 stars Legacy of the Force off to an amazing start 28 Jan. 2008
Legacy of the Force: Betrayal marks the beginning of a new 9 book series taking place ten years after the 19 book New Jedi Order series and about four years after the Dark Nest Trilogy that bridges the gap between the NJO and LotF. Betrayal in my opinion is a far more satisfying opening to LotF than Vector Prime was for the NJO, this I think hinges on how much I enjoyed the Dark Nest Trilogy and how it set the galactic scene after the Yuuzhan Vong war and how it sorted out a number of key issues so LotF could hit the ground running. This however is not to take anything away from Betrayal itself, this book is excellent in its own right with Aaron Allston crafting a compelling and extremely enjoyable story.

Betrayals plotline is centered around the growing tension between the Corellian system of planets and the Galactic Alliance, with a Jedi Order that is continuing to grow and become an important part in guarding the peace and security of the galaxy. The Corellian system on the surface is simply wanting concessions from the Galactic Alliance but with Thracken Sal-Solo as Corellias(the planet) Chief of State, Centerpoint Station and Sith thrown into the mix things are anything but simple. However this latest galactic incident has a lot of implications for the Skywalker/Solo families as Han solo and Leia gravitate towards the side of the Corellians while the rest of their family are Jedi Knights duty bound to protect the Galactic Alliance. This plot is beautifully handled providing anything but a clear cut conflict as both sides have valid concerns and are being manipulated from behind the scenes by the true enemy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starting Down the Dark Path 28 Nov. 2012
First, a comment on the Legacy of the Force series as a whole: this really is a bridge too far; everyone who reads Star Wars books wants to hear the continuing adventures of our heroes but when are they going to get their happy ending? This is 30 years plus after Star Wars and the poor dears are creaking on into their fifties and sixties without being allowed to stop. They vanquished the Empire and then the Yuzung Vong: why do they have to have more misery piled on top of them? It's fair to say the books were going stale before the New Jedi Order series and were in much need of the peril brought by the extra-galactic invasion. After that came the interesting Swarm War series on the frontiers of unexplored space (which could have tapped a rich vein of different adventures). However, instead, the denizens of the Galaxy apparently haven't had quite enough suffering and are intent on putting themselves through more.

The Galactic Alliance, successor to the New Republic- supposedly a loose alliance but now seemingly the same thing as the NR- want money. For some reason, they fear another extra-galactic invasion and believe this is imminent, despite the fact that the first and only time this unlikely thing has happened is in the few years previous. They therefore want money to pay for a fleet but the Corellians, apparently recognising the sheer lunacy of this premise, don't want to pay. The only rational course for the GA to follow is to go to war with the Corellians who spend the money they saved in not building a fleet on....building a fleet!

Ok. So the broad setting doesn't make load of sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant First Book for Legacy of the Force! 16 Dec. 2010
I loved the star wars films. From the first time I saw them they were my three favourite films. Then they made three more! Six fantastic movies (let's pretend Episode III was as good as the others). But then I discovered the Expanded Universe, and that's what really makes star wars. I know that there are many people, some in my own family, who reject the expanded universe as not being "proper Star Wars". This isn't true. According to Aaron Allston's website, not just anyone can write a star wars novel. They are approached and asked if they would write a novel, and their ideas are closely scrutinised by LucasBooks to ensure they work with the star wars universe. The people who MADE "Proper Star Wars" approve them. Not sure if George Lucas reads them, he's probably too busy with the expanded universe TV series he's reportedly planning. I wonder if they'll be considered "proper star wars"?

Either way, whether you like the idea of the expanded universe or not, it exists, and utilises many famous and/or well-talented authors. Aaron Allston is one of them. This first book in the Legacy of the Force series is a fantastic introduction to a series, and a highly addictive novel. I won't call it a page-turner as I listened to the audiobook (more on that later), but whatever the equivalent is, this book has it.

The story has a basic premise of one government (Corellia - Han Solo's home planet) causing problems for a joint-government by not following the rules. The Jedi, as a peace-keeping force, get involved (Yes! Lightsabers!) and inevitably the dark side is discovered to be involved.
