CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The Jedi Order is in crisis. The late Jacen Solo’s shocking transformation
into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who
wield the Force for good: Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable

nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will
once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the
galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way, a name whispered to them through
the Force: Skywalker.
