Champions of the Force wraps up the Jedi Academy trilogy by Kevin Anderson, and it's a roller coaster ride for anyone who enjoys exploring the Star Wars expanded universe.

For the most part I stopped reading Star Wars novels after this series. They grew too cyclical and redundant for my tastes—the point seemingly being to recreate the thrills of the original trilogy over and over again. No thanks. Been there, done that already. One exception: Star Wars video games. Love 'em. ( )

In my opinion, Star Wars Champions Of The Force is the best of the trilogy. It ends very well and feels like Star Wars ought to.

Kevin J. Anderson has also done another series with his wife, Rebecca Moesta. The series is called Star Wars Young Jedi Knights, which is for young adults and is my favorite series of all the Star Wars books I've read.

I don't know why this book is so heavily criticized but it's one of my all time favorites (although it doesn't rank quite as high as Young Jedi Knights). I have always found Kevin J. Anderson's work appealing, there's something about his style that makes his Star Wars books impossible for me to put down. And so, despite what others may say, I'm a definite fan of this masterpiece and I highly recommend it. ( )

Champions of the Force is book three of the Jedi Academy Trilogy by Kevin James Anderson. I found it decent for an ending to the trilogy, although I felt that the antagonist was defeated too early in the novel. This novel, in my opinion, would fall under the same fantasy category as the Crystal Star, and Courtship of Princess Leia. Although some elements were bizarre, the Prototype Death Star and the Imperial Military Academy saved the novel overall. As a whole, the trilogy is worth reading. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 055329802X, Mass Market Paperback)

Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy. But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out physically to the Jedi twins. At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child -- Leia and Han's baby Anakin -- hidden on the planet Anoth. Meanwhile, Luke's former protÚgÚ Kyp Durron has pirated the deadly Sun Crusher on an apocalyptic mission of mass destruction, convinced he is fighting for a just cause. Hunting down the rogue warrior, Han must persuade Kyp to renounce his dark crusade and regain his lost honor. To do it, Kyp must take the Sun Crusher on a suicide mission against the awesome Death Star prototype -- a battle Han knows they may be unable to win... even with Luke Skywalker at their side!
