Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy. But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out physically to the Jedi twins. At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child -- Leia and Han's baby Anakin -- hidden on the planet Anoth. Meanwhile, Luke's former protege Kyp Durron has pirated the deadly Sun Crusher on an apocalyptic mission of mass destruction, convinced he is fighting for a just cause. Hunting down the rogue warrior, Han must persuade Kyp to renounce his dark crusade and regain his lost honor. To do it, Kyp must take the Sun Crusher on a suicide mission against the awesome Death Star prototype -- a battle Han knows they may be unable to win... even with Luke Skywalker at their side!… (més)

Chapter 3 of the Jedi Academy Trilogy. A nice strong finish to a large collection of events. Things smoothly tie up at the end for those things which got started in the first chapter. Everything comes to a powerful, believable and enchanting closure. Things are also prepped for another series involving numerous of the characters. In fact there are several things I would like to see carried through: a romance, some weapons, certain people. I'm trying to be vague so as to not disclose the ending. The only negative thing that I have to say is that I got sick of all the straight homages/quotes from the movie. Things like Han Solo repeatedly saying "Don't quote me the odds" or references to Yoda's "There is no try. Do or do not." I know that Anderson was probably only doing that to help make the reader remember the characters better, but it began to get annoying. They started to sound like broken records instead. Other than that, these are enjoyable additions to the Star Wars universe. ( )

This was the third and final installment in the Jedi Academy Trilogy, and though not ingeniously plotted, I thought it tied up the series pretty well.

Though I disliked the way that Anderson handled Kyp's descent to the dark side in the second book, I thought that the character's growth occurred more naturally and logically in this book. I also thought that the development of other characters, such as Ackbar and Terpfen, proceeded logically, as well.

Another thing that pleased me about this book was the manner with which it handled the topic of amnesia. This is a topic often depicted with extreme inaccuracy in the media, but here, it was done well. The character in question experiences retrograde amnesia, the type of amnesia where memories of the past are forgotten. Most stories depict characters which obtain this type of amnesia from brain damage, but this is unrealistic, as physical damage usually causes a different kind of amnesia. However, in the case of this novel, memories are forcibly (pun intended) ripped from the character's mind, justifying the result. The book also considers the fact that not all memories are lost in amnesia and that muscle memory is not affected.

All that said, this book wasn't perfect. In fact, it had a very glaring flaw in the basic plot. At the start of the book, Luke is in a coma and the spectral remains of dead Sith Exar Kun is trying to kill him. Because he is merely a spirit, he must resort to tricks to try to kill Luke, manipulating organisms in the environment to do the work for him. This made sense at first, but eventually, Luke's Jedi students stand up against Exar Kun, and he quickly begins Force choking them all into submission. That was where the whole thing fell apart for me, because there was no reason he couldn't have just choked Luke to death from the beginning.

I also didn't like how Anderson handled the mass of Jedi students. Apparently, there were 12 total students, but he only bothered to describe about half of them. He gave these students names, races, and basic personalities, and every time all 12 students got together to do stuff, he would describe what these named students were doing, then generically mention that there were other students there doing stuff, too. It fell very flat and really just left the impression that those extra students weren't there, at all. I would have preferred if the students were handled in a more Hunger Games-ish fashion, where you could tell the author at least knew a bit about every one of them, even if some got more attention in the narrative than others.

Overall, I gave the book 4 stars because it felt like a solid conclusion to the trilogy, even if the writing of this series in general was never perfect. ( )

After Kyp turns evil, the Republic is pretty displeased with the Jedi. Eventually the Jedi apprentices rise up, Luke gets his body back, and Kyp turns back to the Light Side. But what I really remember about this book is the relationship between Wedge and the tormented scientist Qwi Xux. The smartest children of her planet were stolen and forced to create terrible weapons for the Empire; those who failed had to watch their homelands bombed into oblivion. After surviving this, Qwi is highly-strung and racked with guilt. But she still has a brilliant mind, and with Wedge's tender help she begins to become a person instead of just a problem-solving machine. The duo did not stay together, but I really liked the evolution of their romance. ( )

Champions of the Force wraps up the Jedi Academy trilogy by Kevin Anderson, and it's a roller coaster ride for anyone who enjoys exploring the Star Wars expanded universe.

For the most part I stopped reading Star Wars novels after this series. They grew too cyclical and redundant for my tastes—the point seemingly being to recreate the thrills of the original trilogy over and over again. No thanks. Been there, done that already. One exception: Star Wars video games. Love 'em. ( )
