This novel is one of two in a duology. Luke takes his wife and a team with him to see what is going on in the aftermath of Coruscant's fall. Luke fells he must go because he scenes a darkness he must seek out on the planet.
Mara leaves her son Ben in the care of her brother and sister-in-law, Han and Leia Organa Solo, though she decided earlier that she could not leave her son. When she did in the past she almost lost him. Like I said about Mara in Balance Point, she's not a mother you want to cross! She's a pain in the neck in the best possible way, lol. Writers in this series have muted her a bit, which is annoying since she is such a personality!

What I found a bit shocking was the creation of a NEW rebellion! A very interesting twist. It's been a while now that the New Republic was not running like they had hoped. With the fall of Coruscant they have discovered out of necessity to start over again.
