After the Yuuzhan Vong War—the most devastating conflict in the long history of the Galaxy—there is peace.

The Jedi Order strains under the weight of their newly embraced relativistic approach to the Force. Their now believes are put to the test when a crisis occurs between the Chiss Ascendancy and a collection of Killik hives encroaching on their boarders.

Would recommend to those familiar to the game this novel is based off, or those who prefer action plots.
