Synopsis:
The Yuuzhan Vong invasion spreads death and destruction across the galaxy, leaving behind ravaged worlds with little hope of survival... Artorias, the homeworld of the Galfridian family lay in the path of the Yuuzhan Vong armada -- and now, though separated, Finn, Kaye, Nina, and Caled work to fight the invaders with the hope that one day they will again be together on their peaceful planet.
Finn studies at the Jedi temple with Luke Skywalker and the grown Jedi children of Han Solo and Princess Leia! Kaye and Nina use a Yuuzhan Vong slave ship to attack their former captors! Caled raises forces on Artorias -- not knowing the danger from one of his trusted allies!
New and vital knowledge sends Finn Galfridian with Jacen and Jaina Solo on a mission to the planet of Artorias. Though Finn does not know if his father, Caled, lives, if there is any chance, he must be warned of new dangers. It's a hot and dangerous ride to Artorias, and the occupying Yuuzhan Vong are ready with a toothsome, ravaging welcome...
Meanwhile, Kaye and Nina, board their newly acquired Vong ship, embark on their own mission. It's one they can't refuse: rescuing captives held on a dead planet. There is no telling what peril will meet the rescue party...
Jedi-in-training Finn Galfridian learns a secret about his mother that he never knew, but the knowledge only leads to new questions about himself and his unusual ability. 
Meanwhile, Kaye Galfridian leads a New Republic attack against a Yuuzhan Vong base, not realizing that the Vong commander's tactics are meant to buy him time to learn more about his most hated foe: Kaye's brother, Finn.
Kaye Galfridian has taken command of a New Republic army, but her first mission has forced her to fight against some of the very refugees she has come to rescue! Mutated by Yuuzhan Vong bioengineering, the refugees have become monstrous killing machines who can only be "saved" by death.
Meanwhile, on their homeworld of Artorias, Kaye's brother Finn must deal with death on another level, unaware that he has become the enemy's objective in a new front in the Yuuzhan Vong invasion!
The rescues have all been attempted, and the rescuers—Finn Galfridian and his sister Kaye—have learned fateful lessons about the Yuuzhan Vong invaders.
But Finn has also learned a secret about his mother and received clues about the mystery surrounding him. Finn knows that someday he must go back to the fight to free his homeworld from the invaders, as well as return to Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy and complete his Jedi training. But first he has a mission that he must complete in order to complete himself...
