When the Empire died, they were born--a new hope for the New Republic. The young twins of Han Solo and Princess Leia have taken their first steps as Jedi Knights, defeating the evil minions of the Shadow Academy. Now, with their friends Lowbacca the Wookie and Tenel Ka, the future heroes of an already legendary saga continue their training.
Bornan Thul's secret is out: he's been protecting a deadly plague that could devastate the galaxy if released. And the evil Nolaa Tarkona--leader of the Diversity Alliance--knows where it is hidden.
Now Jacen, Jania and their allies must race against time. As a massive battle rages between the New Republic soldiers and the forces of the Diversity Alliance, the young Jedi Knights must find and destroy the plague before it can be released.
But first they must face Nolaa Tarkona. And her very lethal hired hand, Boba Fett.
