Biographical Note:
Michael A. Stackpole is the author of the New York Times bestselling Star Wars X-wing novels. Dark Tide: Onslaught is the first of two new Star Wars novels he is writing. When not chained to a desk madly fighting deadlines, he plays indoor soccer, rides a mountain bike, and reads, but not all at the same time. He lives in Arizona with Liz Danforth and a small pack of Welsh Cardigan Corgis.


Jacket Description/Back:
The alien Yuuzhan Vong have launched an attack on the worlds of the Outer Rim. They are merciless, without regard for life -- and they stand utterly outside the Force. Their ever-changing tactics stump the New Republic military. Even the Jedi, once the greatest guardians of peace in the galaxy, are rendered helpless by this impervious foe -- and their solidarity has begun to unravel. Now a rogue group of Knights have split off to deal with the Yuuzhan Vong on their own. Luke Skywalker must stop them -- any way he can -- before they fall to the Dark Side.

While Luke struggles to keep the Jedi together, Knights Jacen Solo and Corran Horn set out to learn some kind of secret that might be used to undermine the enemy. With a team of commandos they slip onto Garqi, an occupied world. If they are discovered, the Jedi will fall, and the New Republic will die...
