Champions of the Force is the final novel in the Jedi Academy Trilogy, and continues the story of Kyp Durron, the Jedi-pupil-turned-Dark-Side-user. This is an exciting end to the trilogy, as the stories of Han Solo, Luke, Kyp, and the superweapon all intersect.

Published in 1994, Champions of the Force is a fitting end to the trilogy and wraps up the various story arcs in a way that is surprising and enjoyable. Fans of the series or of Luke should definitely read this novel.

Publisher's Summary

Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy. But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out physically to the Jedi twins.

At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child - Leia and Han's baby Anakin, hidden on the planet Anoth.

Meanwhile, Luke's former protégé, Kyp Durron, has pirated the deadly Sun Crusher on an apocalyptic mission of mass destruction, convinced he is fighting for a just cause. Hunting down the rogue warrior, Han must persuade Kyp to renounce his dark crusade and regain his lost honor. To do it, Kyp must take the Sun Crusher on a suicide mission against the awesome Death Star prototype: a battle Han knows they may be unable to win...even with Luke Skywalker at their side!

If you liked the first two books in this trilogy, there's no reason that this one won't be a satisfactory conclusion. Champions of the Force has no shortage of strange moments, but those are largely overshadowed by the memorable ones that feature fan favorite characters such as Wedge Antilles, Chewie, and of course Luke Skywalker.
