    Nice to see they havent forgotten about the Bothans Jihad. That could be quite a cool plot thread if its used.

    Spoilers for all you Tenel Ka / Jacen fans:

    they are back together and spent the night together! it was stated officially in that book.

    this spoiler comes from the www.njoe.com boards, where a lucky fangirl posts spoilers from her copy of the book she got early!

    Sounds like it's the same situation as the end of the NJO. I would have thought after five years they'd figure it out...

    I just asked that in the NJOE forum. That's good to know.

    Sorry the spoilers have not been more forthcoming, but real life keeps getting in the way:

















    Luke has to do some maintenance on R2, and he sees a holorecording of the scene where Anakin tells Padme about his dream of her dieing. Then R2 has a bit of a meltdown.

    J/TK - YES! YES! YES! =D=:):cool:

    Are Isolder and Ta'a Chume still around? If so, I can see trouble for the duo in the future.

    I was kinda hoping for three things to happen during the final year of the NJO books, but they didn't occur. Based on the spoiler, I know one thing did happen - Jacen and Tenel Ka were able to get together and let each other know how they felt about each other.


    Here are the other two things:
    Jaina and Zekk get together - not so much as rekindling their romance, like what happened to J/TK, but I always thought J/Z needed to talk to each other about their actions/reactions during the Myrkr mission, and why Zekk chose to leave Jaina. I was kinda hoping for that to happen after the Knighting ceremony in DW.

    Alema and Tahiri get together - both of them loved Anakin. I'm certain feelings of jealousy were present. There might have been the beginnings of a rivalry between them for Anakin's affections. With Anakin's death, that rivalry came to an abrupt end, but there might have been some lingering bitterness between them. Thought they could get together and clear the air.

    Edit - I just read the previous post. It looks like the Solo/Skywalker clan is going to learn about Padmé at last.

    Edit - I forgot to ask - any displays of new Force powers?

    What about force powers? Do they have anything about them. Anybody does anything besides the basic stuff?

    SPOILERS:


















    While under attack by the Killiks, Luke creates a false Jade Shadow and cloaks the real one with the Force.





    But it costs him, he ages and sags like Palpatine.

    R2 recorded them on the balcony in their pajamas? I find that a little far-fetched, but this is exciting.

    Poor R2! I'm sure that Luke'll have him fixed up before the trilogy ends. I wonder if that's the only information on Anakin and Padme that Luke will get for now? The excerpt is decent and it looks like we're in for a good story. I can't wait to start reading this book.

    Amused Knight, you are joking, right?

    i think he's joking, too.

    I guess this means I can bribe my brother in law with a trip to B&N next week when I go babysit for him and my sister during the day. I'm going to be staying there on the release date.

    So if you are not joking, does Luke´s features just get old or does they "melt" like Palpatine´s in the movie?:confused:

    Well,












    If I remember correctly a little of both but a little rest gets him back to normal.

    I saw another thread that reminded me of this spoiler:












    The Killiks created Centerpoint Station.

    Wait! Wait! Wait! You're not about that Luke stumbling onto a recording of his parents in R2. Are you yawnking our chains until we read it and find out by ourselves?

    Every spoiler I have written is completely and utterly true.
