Featured Book


The ninth and final book of Legacy of the Force, Star Wars: Legacy of the Force: Invincible by Troy Denning, hits shelves today.  For two years Jacen Solo’s decent into the Dark Side of the Force (though the seeds were planted much earlier during the New Jedi Order series) has led to this moment.

With the galaxy on the verge of a new Sith Empire, the Republic the Rebellion fought so hard to resurrect now only a distant memory, the Jedi scattered, the Solo’s hunted, Luke Skywalker must bring together his forces for one last desperate attempt to save the galaxy by doing the unthinkable – killing his nephew.  For more about the story so far read about the first four books of the series here, and check out our review for the fifth book Sacrifice featuring the turning point of the series and the death of a major character.

The hardcover finale to the series is all set to hit shelves today with a cover price of $27.00
