“This is the 2nd book in the Agents of Chaos series.
Considering that I read the first book in the series last April, and I read the first book in the New Jedi Order series in 1999, I am taking my sweet time getting through this series. (AT this rate, I should finish the series by ….December 20, 2012. You know, sort of a “what did you do, Daddy, before the Apocalypse came?” question). The book was good- it had a major space battle, the return of the rogue-ish Han Solo, and help build up the urgency of the invasion from beyond. However, after a few days of reading the book, I was ready for it to end. I am hoping that future books can be more- attention grabbing. (I am concern, however, with the length of time it is taking me to go through various Star Wars books- 3 weeks and going on the latest Darth Bane novel; 1 week since I started Death Troopers…not to mention not reading one of the Clone Wars novels yet. I am thinking that with my upcoming relocation, I am going to have the time to read more of the books…).”

“This is the fifth book in the New Jedi Order series, and is written by the same author as the fourth, James Luceno. In my review of the fourth book, I complained about Luceno not getting into the character's heads. This didn't prove to be as true in "Jedi Eclipse". What I liked the most about this book was that it showed more of the Solo kids, or at least two of them. Jacen and Anakin Solo go off to try and re-enable a super weapon to be used against the alien race that has waged war on the New Republic. The government has said that the weapon would only be used for self defense, but Jacen isn't so sure. The seventeen-year-old Jedi has gone philosopher in this war, and wishes that there could be a way of defeating the aliens without killing them. I love that these new ideas have been brought into these books, and I can't wait to see what Jacen tries to figure out next. ”Adeline S wrote this review Wednesday, February 24, 2010.
