The third and final book in the Force Heretic trilogy by Sean Williams and Shane Dix, “Reunion”, is the best of the three, but the trilogy overall has been unimpressive. The novels are plagued with uneven pacing, wordiness, and mediocre characterization, all of which might have been avoided if the books had been edited and consolidated into two books rather than spread out into three.

In “Reunion”, Luke Skywalker and his team have found the legendary planet of Zonoma Sekot, but the inhabitants of

This "story" took three books to tell?!

Luke and gang find Zonoma Sekot and try to convince it to join the cause. Leia and Han and gang get a warning that the communication stations with the Unknown regions are under attack. Tahiri still fights against her inner battle.

NOTE: Based on audiobook and novel.


Uh, sorry, you woke me up. I just finished listening to "Reunion" on audiobook, and, boy, was I bored. The last two books (specfically "Refugee") made me varying degrees of p!ssed off, which

I'm highly impressed. I didn't like FH1 or especially #2 very much, but this one is incredible. The characters all act like themselves, events happen and characters act for a reason, space battles and combat are well described, and the plot moves fluidly. I especially liked the changing viewpoints, particularly where Sekot is asking Jacen and Luke the same question and you get to see their same-meaning-yet-different answers. That was cool. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has read part ...more

I really don't think the "Force Heretic" subseries really needed to be three novels long. There were some really good ideas in it, like the Tahiri/Riina story (which I think is going to be key to the resolution of the whole NJO saga) and Zonama Sekot, but it's something that really could have been set over two or even one book. The whole thing dragged out way too long and suffered greatly from the "Let's revisit every single Star Wars plot idea ever" concept that the NJO has been suffering from.
Feb 21, 2014 Daniel rated it it was ok
The best part of this book was the epilogue--because finally we see some character development and heart behind the story.

Unfortunately most of the Force Heretic trilogy (part of the New Jedi Order series) has been fairly boring and slightly confusing. As I've mentioned on the other two installments, there are parts and ideas that are really quite good, but the execution is hit and miss.

I honestly felt the trilogy could have been cut down to one or two books. There's just too much going on that

This exciting conclusion to the Force Heretic trilogy in the New Jedi Order Series picks up where book two left off: with our heroes on 2 separate missions. Luke Skywalker is looking fot the living planet, Zonoma Sekot, to enlist its help in the war against the invading Yuuzhan Vong. Han & Leia Solo are busying repairing communication relays only to discover the Vong in the act of knocking out the last link they have to the Unknown regions. Battle, inevitably, ensues. I certainly liked where ...more
Back to interesting things happening. There's still some marking time here as certain things are less exciting than others - chiefly the ones that are more tangential to the whole Zonama Sekot thing, although Nom Anor's life on the lam within the bowels of Coruscant is also fascinating for its further look into the tensions within the Yuuzhan Vong caste system, a cool subplot through a number of the NJO books.

Although this volume also hits on one of my pet peeves in EU books, where it tries to r

Holy craaaaaaap! The dry and repetitive NJO series continues in this awful conclusion to the Force Heretic sub-trilogy. Despite having an AWESOME title, this whole thing has blown. It takes everyone 3 books to meet some meager goals. It's loaded to bursting with fluff, and THERE ARE NO CHAPTERS!

I know it's a stylistic thing, but chapters just make books less daunting. If it's moving at a good clip, sure, I'll just blow through the whole thing. But there is no way that the authors and editors di

The best of the Force Heretic trilogy, but still entrenched in an amateurish writing style, and still not up to par with other entries.

Finally, we've gotten to the good bits. The ambling story with Tahiri has reached a conclusions (and a purpose), and we finally see the mysterious Zonama Sekot. Okay, so some of us saw it in Rogue Planet, but now we're seeing it through new eyes and learning what's become of it since.

Despite my complaints with the series, I still have them all 4 stars because I

Decent book, but the pay-off for the entire trilogy. The value of Zonoma Sekot in terms of the war effort remains unclear and thus felt almost unnecessary.

The new Jedi order completely outpaces anything in the Starwars genre. This series was Dark, exciting, fast paced, and inspired. The writing was fantastic and the level of philosophy and force history was unparalleled. If your a fan at any level of the Starwars Universe than this series is a must read. It is on my top 5 of all time for a series and I treasured every moment I spent in that time. But beware, this isn't your typical Starwars book, be ready for a level of intensity that you've never ...more

The finale to the 3 part series within a series, Luke has found the "living Planet" Zonama Sekot." Luke must try to persuade the reluctant entity to aide in the battle against the Force immune Yuuzhan Vong. Leia and Han Solo must mount a battle against a far superior enemy. There's little hope for victory. Even Han feels the weight of the odds.

This is a well crafted, imaginative story. It moves well, delves deep into character, while remaining true to what is familiar from the movies.

Apr 12, 2011 Jeff rated it really liked it
Everything that I mentioned in my reviews for the previous two Force Heretic books is still true, but this third installment does a lot to pull together many of the threads that felt like they were lacking in the previous two. That being said, I don't have a whole lot more to add about this specific book. Solid writing, but could have been better. Storyline felt a little thin at times, but does get better towards the end of this sub-trilogy.
Feb 17, 2013 Brantley rated it really liked it
A fun read with a great Droma related twist at the end. A great conclusion to the trilogy, with all of the best Star Wars traditions: a strange world with new inhabitants, a tense standoff against a tough (but predictable) enemy, and all of the usual suspects. Dix writes the characters pretty decently, and writes Pellaeon quite well.

A solid conclusion to the trilogy.

I'm glad that the conclusion to this trilogy was more enjoyable than the previous two books. The writing style was either less clunky and more refined in this book than the previous ones, or I grew used to it. I still did not like the organization of the book, and haphazard way that the author jumped around. The plot was good, and the ending mostly satisfying.

The best book in the trilogy. The wrap of of the Skywalker trip proves to be quite interesting. The Solo line continued to be boring, though the end battle had some interesting pieces. The whole Tahiri section is interesting unlike in the previous books. The lack of chapters is still annoying.

In this last of the trilogy, Zonoma Sekot is found, and we learn the true nature of the Yuuzhan Vong. There is also the issue of whether the pacifist planet will return with Luke and his party to help the New Republic end the war. A final confrontation is looming.

The New Jedi Order is my favorite series in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. It is a long and epic story, with large ramifications for all the Expanded Universe characters. It will keep you busy for a while!

A pretty fun conclusion to this sub-trilogy of NJO. Action and adventure happens, as you might expect. For people that like that sort of thing, I think it is just about the sort of thing they would like.

Just too long for little punch at the end. Though I do look forward to how this will help bring the New Jedi Order series to a close in the next few books.
