The Joiner King is the first book in the Dark Nest Trilogy. A faint call for help has gone out through the Force, and select Jedi are responding even though they have no idea what is needed. In particular, Jaina and Jacen Solo have disappeared in search of the call for assistance. Han, Leia, Luke, and Mara go after them. Jacen has just finished a five-year quest for the true meaning of the force while Jaina has become a highly-skilled, well-respected military pilot.
For some reason, Troy Denning has them all end up in a world populated entirely by large insects (the Killicks) living in nests and functioning through brain melds. In his usual style, Han just refers to them as bugs. The insect world is also on the verge of war with the Chiss, and you know that can’t end well for them. Jaina has become a follower of the Killicks. Jacen seems to be brilliant and mostly stays above the fray. Luke seems to be completely hung up in determining what the Force would have him do. Leia does what she does best, i.e., finds political solutions to knotty problems.
The book has a fair number of good action scenes, but far more discussion groups trying to decide what the right thing to do is. The story gets bogged down a lot. I will read the next two books in the Dark Nest Trilogy, but I am not particularly enthusiastic.
If you have caught up in the time don't skip this one. This has been Troy's best work imo. This one kept interested through out. And it has renewed my fear in bugs lol. Can't wait to start the 2nd installment
oh yeah and fix the damn Jedi!!! This is not the united nations it's the Jedi Order. Rules and morals is what the Jedi Order is, not some gray, progressive new age crap.
Fix the Jedi first.
