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...

Jedi Search is good title for this book until it becomes a Han search. This book was not bad though I think it could have been better. Luke's personality was rather prideful and I wondered if all the dark side stuff from the Dark Empire comic trilogy got to his head. His proposal for a Jedi Academy was too conveniently accepted and I wondered why he even wanted one in the first place. (It's clear in "The Swarm War," that he wishes that he could have been a better leader when he started the Academy). Leia had all of her political responsibilities, and if that wasn't enough, she had to put up with her stuck up, bratty two year old twins. Han has a large role in this story but as always, gets past every challenge thrown at him. This book introduces two major characters: Kyp Durron and Admiral Natasi Daala. Daala, who shows up on page 227, has a very interesting personality, and I think that Mr. Anderson was trying to make a female character who had similar characteristics and traits to Grand Admiral Thrawn. (In this case, I think he did a good job making Daala and Thrawn's outside calm and demeanor similar). This book has enough swear words to match Timothy Zahn's "Scoundrels," which surprised me. What surprised me more was when Leia said a few bad words. I had never seen her do that before! The Sun Crusher sounded like an awesome weapon, and I am excited to see what happens to it in the other books. The ending was a little too convenient like the beginning, and it had a lot of foreshadowing. Luckily, it left me excited to read "Dark Apprentice." (The greatest thing about this book was that Mara was only mentioned, but not actually present in this story).
