Warmaster Tsavong Lah has called for the heads of all the Jedi, and a galaxy already wary of the new order of knights is listening. The unscrupulous Peace Brigade spearheads a mission to the Jedi academy on Yavin 4, where many young students of the Force reside.
Jedi Master Luke Skywalker asks Talon Karrde to rescue the vulnerable students, but the headstrong Anakin Solo takes matters into his own hands. Rocketing to the jungle moon in his X-wing, Anakin discovers his beloved friend Tahiri has been captured by the Yuuzhan Vong. Rescuing her and other captive students may be far more than this young Jedi can handle.
