I've read Timothy Zahn's Heir To The Empire and, while I am impressed, I still prefer Kevin J. Anderson's Jedi Search. This book and both of the others in Anderson's Jedi Academy Trilogy are amongst my favorite Star Wars books ever. The whole then new (now well used) concept of a Jedi Academy is quite intriguing to me. I highly recommend this book for two reasons: (1) The most important: It has a great story and (2) It's quite affordable, especially used. ( )

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker proposes to the New Republic that he resurrects the Jedi Order for future guardians of peace. Mon Mothma agrees to the idea and Luke departs on a Jedi Search. Meanwhile Han Solo is sent as an Ambassador of the New Republic to Kessel. Jedi Search by Kevin James Anderson is book one of the Jedi Academy Trilogy. I found it well written and featured everything one would expect along the topic of the book: searching for Jedi. Although I found the concept of them conveniently finding a device that detects force sensitivity a bit corny. ( )

Despite a dumb title, a very solid Star Wars adventure. Doesn't quite capture the feeling of the movies like Zahn's books but comes close. Good job of building tension and jeopardy despite focusing on characters we know no real harm can come to--the mainstays are all here. ( )

There really isn't much I can say about this, other than the fact that I am simultaneously amused and appalled that my twelve-year-old self liked this book so much. In fairness, it's not that Anderson is a bad writer, though his characterisation makes me want to smack him frequently; it's just that I could only contain my laughter up to the time he describes one of the characters looking out at the city of Coruscant bathed in starlight. You know. Coruscant. The planet the entire surface of which is covered in buildings. And that was about ten pages in. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553297988, Mass Market Paperback)

As the war between the Republic and the scattered  remnants of the Empire continues, two  children--the Jedi twins--will come into their powers in a  universe on the brink of vast changes and challenges.  In this time of turmoil and discovery, an  extraordinary new Star Wars saga  begins....

While Luke Skywalker takes the first  step toward setting up an academy to train a new  order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are  taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to  work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine. But  when Hans and Chewie break away, they flee  desperately to a secret imperial research laboratory  surrounded by a cluster of black holes--and go from  one danger to a far greater one....

On  Kessel, Luke picks up the trail of his two friends,  only to come face to face with a weapon so awesome,  it can wipe out an entire solar system. It is a  death ship called the Sun Crusher, invented by a  reclusive genius and piloted by none other than Han  himself...
