Book Description

The dazzling Star Wars adventure The New Jedi Order continues as Luke Skywalker, Anakin Solo, Mara Jade Skywalker, and others battle their deadliest enemy in a tale of nonstop action, shadowy evil and spectacular triumph…




No longer content with the destruction the Yuuzhan Vong have already sown, Warmaster Tsavong Lah has emanded the heads of all the Jedi. Now the Jedi Knights are in terrible danger-and none more so than the young students at the Jedi academy on Yavin 4. Already the sympathizers known as the Peace Brigade are in the Yavin system- and a Yuuzhan Vong fleet is not far behind.



At Luke Skywalker’s request, Talon Karrde mounts an expedition to rescue the young students. Anakin Solo has his own ideas. Impatient, and figuring that forgiveness is easier to come by than permission, he takes off for Yavin4 in his X-wing.



When it comes to confidence, courage and raw Force talent, Anakin has a few peers, But when his friend Tahiri is separated from the other academy kids and captured by the Yuuzhan Vong, even Anakin may be in over his head. For the aliens have a different future in mind for Tahiri, and they will stop at nothing to achieve their horrific end…

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read. 9 Jun. 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Along with Balance Point this book has to be one of the best in the New Jedi Order series so far.
Conquest centers around Anakin Solo and his resuce mission of a friend.
It was nice not having to wade through tons of Vong technology descriptions, which can often be mind numbing. What this book does is give you a greater understanding of the Vong, at times I found myself actually liking them (to a point!!!).
The most enjoyable parts for me was the relationship between Anakin and a Vong outcast, neither one can accept the others "religion" but has to come to accept it so as they can help each other and accomplish their mission.
I highly recommend this book, although don't read it on it's own, read it as it was meant to be, part of an on going saga. I can't wait for the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another hot-headed Jedi? 24 Oct. 2005
Format:Paperback
Is there anything that Greg Keyes can't do? I've loved almost everything of his that I've read. The Star Wars: The New Jedi Order series has been floundering a little bit with a string of rather dull books, but Keyes comes in and saves the day again. Edge of Victory I: Conquest is just what the doctor ordered, with great tension, a personal story of a character that has seemed fairly clichéd up until now, and some wonderful action as well. Keyes takes young Anakin Solo, the impulsive youngest son of the Han and Leia, and turns in a tour de force. With this book, we begin to understand Anakin a little bit, and there is very little to complain about. I'm glad that, after a year where I just couldn't be bothered to continue the series, this book has brought me back into caring.
After the fall of Duro, the sinister Yuuzhan Vong have offered a deal to the galaxy: if the galaxy gives up its Jedi Knights, then the Vong will not continue their attack. Thus, Jedi are being ambushed all over by either ordinary citizens or an organization calling itself the Peace Brigade, and times have taken a dark turn. With Han and Leia recuperating from the events in Balance Point, the Solo children are attending a meeting of all of the Jedi, where Luke Skywalker is trying desperately to convince a young Jedi hothead named Kyp Durron to accede to Luke's defensive strategy. He's unsuccessful, and the Solos are torn between the two sides. Whatever way the Jedi finally go, Anakin realizes that the Vong will eventually attack the Jedi academy at Yavin, and races off to save them, especially his best friend Tahiri. Unable to get the New Republic to send any ships, Luke convinces an old friend, smuggler Talon Karrde, to take his ships to help him.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good idea but too lightweight 27 April 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I will not comment on the author in general, but this book seemed to be an example of what a number of other authors have done in the past, in jumping on the Star Wars bandwagon knowing people will buy the book.
I waited 13 days to receive this book, and was then finished reading it after a day and a half. it was too easy to read, i found myself on autopilot, as the formula was very 'standard' - too many storylines from the past were reused, and to be honest Luke Skywalker's seeming paralysis in decision making, and Jacen Solo's persistence in questioning everything anyone does without ever taking sides is becoming tedious; after all that has happened you expect some sort of direction to begin to take shape.
I agree with a previous reviewer - this book is really a filler for in between other books, and would probably be better as a sub-plot within a larger story. Anakin is developed, we are made aware that the Vong have reached Yavin, and that Han and Leia have finally reconciled their differences - but amongst the few others included, these facts are too few to base a whole book on.
I will continue to buy the books, as I like to think of myself a true SW fan and can't think of not finding out the next episodes, but the authors and those in charge of the NJO project must start to come up with something better and with more of a direction.
In conclusion, the book was a good idea, but too lightweight.

4.0 out of 5 stars a very good read 17 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is probably one of the better books of the New Jedi Order series though it is not as good as Balance Point. This book is focused mainly on Anakin for once and how he goes to Yavin 4 to save his best friend Tahiri despite Luke's strict orders not to. Anakin comes across a group of people called the Shammed Ones and learns more about the Yuuzahn Vong but this time as a cultural race of aliens and not terrible warriors. Because the book is mainly about Anakin most of the other characters we have come to love aren't featured in this book such as Han or Leia. Luke and Mara do have a small part to play and their little secret is finally revealed. Chief of State Borsk Fey'lya is now really getting on everyones nerves and especially Luke's. Overall i say this is a very good read and a essential addition to the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars A new direction for the New Jedi Order series 13 Jun. 2001
Format:Paperback
Ever since I read Vector Prime, the first NJO book, I have felt that there is something not quite right with this series. When are the New Republic ever going to get a victory? The Yuuzhan Vong are seemingly invincible. Now, finally, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Anakin Solo's character is explored more deeply in this book, and he is portrayed as something more than just a kid. The Yuuzhan Vong appear as something more than just killers by the end as well, and some of their history and beliefs are explained somewhat. However, there still doesn't seem to be a strong direction to the series, although "Conquest" seems to show some sort of path. All in all, an enjoyable addition to the NJO series, but it could have been better.
