Ryan (hh) got some BIG NJO spoilers....ive read them, and believe me....dont highlight if u dont want to find out basically what happens in the next few books!!

Rebel Dream: The New Republic Council has lost hope for victory, ordering Wedge Antilles to take control of the military to cover their retreat. Before they scatter, however, the panic-stricken members of the New Republic Advisory Council pause just long enough to set up a mock defense on nearby Borleias. Not willing to accept defeat, Luke, Mara, Han, Leia and Lando establish a Resistance... just like old times.

Leia and Han Solo travel from world to world to foment rebellion against the New Republic's disastrous appeasement policies. But Luke Skywalker has chosen the most dangerous assignment of all: to sneak into the Yuuzhan Vong's stronghold. Brilliant or suicidal, his outrageous scheme may be thwarted as a Yuuzhan Vong invasion fleet bears down on Borleias, determined to destroy the galaxy's remaining defenders.

Dramatis personal features Rogues and Wraiths, including Face and Piggy. In the Vong section, you can see two new Lahs, and a new shaper character.

Captain Loran of Wraith Squad. No rank for Piggy, but he's in Twin Suns, as is Jagged. Viqi Shesh and Alema Rar are both in the Dramatis as well.

Jaina Kyp and Jag arrive at Borealis a few days after the book starts.

Luke is going to Coruscant with Mara and Tahiri. He apparently senses some great disturbance, darkside like. Kell's going too, from the wraiths.

Piggy and a new wraith are helping Jaina be Goddess like. Jag isn't taking too well to her godess state. It's all to throw off the vong though, so he goes along.

Wedge sent students and kids off planet with Kam and Tionne, including Ben and Wedge's kids. Probably to the Maw.

The SSD Lusankya returns.

Jaina and Jagged kiss.

Traitor: Deep in the bowels of the captured capital planet of Coruscant, a hunted Jedi is hidden with an unexpected mentor who teaches him new ways to understand the Force - and what it means to be a Jedi.

From Matthew Woodring Stover - "Anybody who thinks Star Wars can't be hard-hitting hasn't been reading The New Jedi Order. My novel, Traitor, is going to be just about as gritty as it gets. It's in no way as graphic as Heroes Die or Blade, of course, but you can do a lot with understatement and suggestion, and the central conflict is as intense as anything I've ever written. Frankly, I'm expecting Traitor to blow some fans' minds."

It seems that the principal plot of Traitor is the defection of Vergere and her return to NR.

Destiny's Way: From Del Rey - In the war against the ruthless Yuuzhan Vong, the fall of Coruscant leaves the New Republic divided by internal strife, and on the verge of bowing to conquest. But those who steadfastly refuse to consider surrender?Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, and their children and comrades-in-arms?are determined to seize victory against overwhelming odds. And now, finally, there are signs that the tide may be turning in the New Republic?s favor.

After capturing crucial Yuuzhan Vong intelligence, Jedi fighter-pilot Jaina Solo prepares to lead a daring surprise strike against an enemy flagship. Meanwhile, Jaina's brother Jacen-liberated from the hands of the enemy and newly schooled in an even greater mastery of the Force by the Jedi Knight Vergere-is eagerly poised to bring his unique skills to bear against the invaders. And on Mon Calamari, the New Republic?s provisional capital, the retired, ailing hero Admiral Ackbar has conceived a major tactical plan that could spell the beginning of a swift end for the Yuuzhan Vong.

All these spoilers can be found in various threads at the TF.N literature threads.

1/21/02:More DJ spoilers, this time a synopsis from TFN. Highlight to read, but I tell u, dont if you really dont want to be disappointed. Thanks to TFN for putting it up.

I just read Dark Journey which is going to be a paperback. It's considerably shorter than 'Star by Star' but it picks up right where 'Star by Star' left off.

Jaina and the other young Jedi are trying to escape the Vong. Harrar, a Yuuzhan Vong priest, and Kahlee Lah, Tsavong Lah's son, are pursuing them. The Jedi make a hyperspace jump to Coruscant where they run into the fight between the Republic and the Yuuzhan Vong. Leia senses Jaina's presence, but also senses that she's gone over to the dark side. Kyp Durron gets his entire squadron killed and joins the Falcon when they make the hyperspace jump to Hapes.

The Jedi also make the jump to Hapes and when they get there, they deliver Anakin's body to Leia. Leia and the young Jedi all sense Jacen's death through the Force, but Leia refuses to believe that he's actually dead. Ta'a Chume decides that her son Isolder needs a new wife and that it should be Jaina. Jagged Fel of the Chiss comes to Hapes as well with his squadron to help the Republic fight the Vong. He flirts with Jaina at a state dinner at the Hapan palace. Jaina tries to avoid Anakin's funeral, but Kyp forces her to attend. The funeral is morbid, but they burn Anakin with dignity and then Jaina announces that she will now be Kyp's apprentice. Her family disapproves, but they can't stop her.

Jaina and Lowbacca figure out how to send the Vong misinformation using their stolen Vong ship - they realize that the yammosks trace the Vong ships through their gravity signatures and change the gravity signatures of several ships to make the Vong think they are somewhere else. Jaina finds herself constantly fighting with Jag and finally figures out that she's in love with him, but is afraid that he doesn't feel the same way.

Ta'a Chume assassinate's Tenenial Djo (Tenel Ka's mother) and confronts Jaina about her plans to make her the new queen. Jaina refuses and Tenel Ka finally decides to do her duty and become the new queen of Hapes. With the help of Kyp, Jaina finally realizes that she must turn away from the dark side and begins her journey back to the light. Kahlee Lah kills himself for his failure to capture Jaina.

The book was annoyingly mushy at some points and it focused almost entirely on Jaina - Jacen is not even in it. Obviously, Jacen is not really dead and he and Jaina will have some cataclysmic battle in the next book. Luke and Mara have about 3 lines each and Han and Leia have about 10 pages worth of dialogue. The book really focuses on Jaina, Kyp, and Jag.

1/20/02: Ok, headhunter sent me some DJ spoilers that he got from Jedinet. Thanks to him :) and also Ghentz who typed it up on Jedinet.

Highlight to read. Beware, these are genuine spoilers. Dont read it if you dont want to be spoiled!!

A character from The Courtship of Princess Leia resurfaces and is killed off. That's right, Death Becomes Ten-- Anyway, it looks like Han Solo might have to live in fear once again.

Gallinore's Professor Sinsor Khal (related to *cough* ST's Kahless or Tsavong Lah's sonny-boy Kahlee?) is in the book. He was probably the best thing about the short story in Star Wars Gamer #8, "The Apprentice" (also written by Cunningham), where he was introduced.

The really controversial actions taken by Jaina and Kyp in that particular short is not covered much in DJ. Pity. It would be wonderful to get an explanation for the selective application of said actions and the plot holes introduced by them.

A supporting character who first appeared in in Star Wars Gamer #7's "Red Sky, Blue Flame" (also written by ... drum roll ... Elaine Cunningham) also plays a role in the book. I've avoided this short because I didn't like EC's Jedi stories and because Chiss annoy me. :)

Zekk and Jagged are both in the book. While Zekk apparently disappears somewhere around two-thirds of the way through the book, we end up stuck with Jag, a "major" disappointment for me.

Baron Soontir "Pops" Fel does a fly-by.

Eclipse, the new secret base of the Jedi, makes a few brief appearances, but its location is not revealed, according to our reader.

Anakin gets a funeral.

Ben Skywalker has a babysitter. LuCky.

A "major" Yuuzhan Vong character dies. Guess who.

1/18/02: Wow, 2 updates in 1 day!! Well a lot has happened today. Pete (TPU) has his link now on the Affiliates Page. I've also updated every page. Tonight there'll be all the NJO book excerpts, as well as some interviews with authors. I'll also have a new poll up. I added the guestbook again, it has pride of place once again on the homepage. The links are back up, as well as the counter. Oh before i forget, the hits count now exceeds 700!! I think when the site gets to 1000, the Big 3 will be celebrating. Well I'm off to get that stuff I promised on the site. Ciao!!

1/18/02: Well we're back, after that evil incident with a hacker. We have stuff from headhunter in the gallery, and there will be DJ excerpts coming soon!
