Star Wars: The New Jedi Order - Balance Point Paperback
Part of the Star Wars series
In the aftermath of one tragedy, will a young Jedi's search for redemption lead to yet another?
There is no place else to cannel the flood of refugees fleeing the murderous Yuuzhan Vong but the overcrowded planet Duro poisoned by centuries of technological excess.
Fortunately a deal struck: In exchange for a new home, the refugees will work to restore the planet to health under the watchful eye of Lei Organa Solo.
While tempers flare between the Duros and the New republic, Han Solo, his son, Jacen and the Ryn called Droma arrive to keep the peace.
They are unaware that Leia is on Duro...and that Luke, Mara and Anakin are on their way, searching for a missing Jedi apprentice. And none realize that the Yuuzhan Vong have chosen this embattled planet as the next target in their brutal coreward thrust.
Now, as the fragile stability on Duro threatens to collapse into violence, Jaen Solo must face his greatest dilemma: At what point does the use of power become aggression?
Whatever he decides, his next step could tip the galaxy's destiny toward the light or toward the darkness-with the life of someone he loves hanging in the balance...

Review by slothman
Another slow volume in the New Jedi Order series. The natural vernacular of <i>Star Wars</i> is action, and this book is more intrigue; there isn't enough dramatic tension to match the unfolding of events. One of the plot threads-- Jacen Solo's agonizing about whether or not to use the Force-- was a bit tedious. The book provides its checklist of plot points in the overall arc without really standing out on its own.
