Twenty-one years have passed since the heroes of the Rebel Alliance destroyed the Death Star, breaking the power of the Emperor. Since then, the New Republic has valiantly struggled to maintain peace and prosperity among the peoples of the galaxy. But unrest has begun to spread and threatens to destroy the Republic's tenuous reign.

Into this volatile atmosphere comes Nom Anor, a charismatic firebrand who heats passions to the boiling point, sowing seeds of dissent for his own dark motives. And as the Jedi and the Republic focus on internal struggles, a new threat surfaces from beyond the farthest reaches of the Outer Rim--an enemy bearing weapons and technology unlike anything New Republic scientists have ever seen.

Suddenly, Luke Skywalker; his wife, Mara; Han Solo; Leia Organa Solo; and Chewbacca--along with the Solo children--are thrust again into battle, to defend the freedom so many have fought and died for. But this time, the power of the Force itself may not be enough . . .

Vector Prime is the first in the nineteen-book New Jedi Order series. It introduces us to the Yuuzhan Vong and shows the beginning of the Yuuzhan Vong War. The Solo children, despite their young ages (Jacen/Jaina - 16, Anakin - 15), take a primary role as the book progresses. Because the book was published eighteen years ago back in 1999, I will touch on major plot point - the death of a major character. I won't spoil who dies, but because of the amount of time that the book has been out, it's exceedingly easy to discover i one is interested. The death scene is very well written and works well to the plot of the rest of the novel and the series in general. A must read for any Star Wars fan, be aware that this novel (and series) is part of the Legends timeline and therefore will not jive with the new films from Disney.

It was a great start to The New Jedi Order Series. One of the best ones out of all of them.

Great series, unfortunately i have major difficulty actually finding the books, so far i've only been able to read the books listed on this website, and have used Wookieepedia for summaries of the others.
