Merciless attacks by an invincible alien force have left the New Republic reeling. Dozens of worlds have succumbed to occupation or annihilation, and even the Jedi Knights have tasted defeat. In these darkest of times, the noble Chewbacca is laid to rest, having died as heroically as he lived — and a grief-stricken Han Solo is left to fit the pieces of his shattered life back together before he loses everything: friends, family, and faith.

Refusing help from Leia or Luke, Han becomes the loner he once was, seeking to escape the pain of his partner’s death in adventure … and revenge. When he learns that an old friend from his smuggling days is operating as a mercenary for the enemy, he sets out to expose the traitor. But Han’s investigation uncovers an even greater evil: a sinister conspiracy aimed at the very heart of the New Republic’s will and ability to fight — the Jedi.

Now Han must face down his inner demons and, with the help of a new and unexpected ally, honor Chewbacca’s sacrifice in the only way that matters — by being worthy of it.

A string of smashing victories by the forces of the sinister aliens known as the Yuuzhan Vong has left New Republic resources and morale stretched to the breaking point. Leia Organa Solo, estranged from her husband, Han, oversees the evacuation of planets in the path of the merciless invaders. Luke Skywalker struggles to hold the fractious Jedi Knights together, even while one of them undertakes a bold but reckless undercover mission.

Manipulating their alliance with the amoral Hutts, the Yuuzhan Vong leave a cunning trail of false information where New Republic agents are sure to find it–information the desperate defenders cannot afford to ignore: the location of the aliens’ next target.

Then Han Solo stumbles upon the true target, thus beginning a furious race against time that he will need every skill and trick in his arsenal to win. The odds are stacked against him. But Han has never been able to resist a gamble, whether in a game of sabacc or in the void of space …
