NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je'daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force--and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je'daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy.
 
Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je'daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency. The leader of a fanatical cult, obsessed with traveling beyond the reaches of known space, is bent on opening a cosmic gateway using dreaded dark matter as the key--risking a cataclysmic reaction that will consume the entire star system. But more shocking to Lanoree than even the prospect of total galactic annihilation, is the decision of her Je'daii Masters to task her with the mission of preventing it. Until a staggering revelation makes clear why she was chosen: The brilliant, dangerous madman she must track down and stop at any cost is the brother whose death she has long grieved--and whose life she must now fear.

Includes a special, full-color excerpt from the Dark Horse comic Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi and an original Dawn of the Jedi short story by John Ostrander!

Praise for Into the Void
 
"In a story filled with adventure, intrigue, and great quotes, there's a lot to like in this book. Tim Lebbon dives into his very first Star Wars story with a great deal of success. He manages to spin a tale that feels like Star Wars , but also feels different from other stories that have been told before. While there is some threat of system wide destruction, the point is never pushed to being ridiculous. The characters feel believable and provoke interest. The attention to the characters never takes away from the plot. There's also a remarkable balance between world building, plot and character development, and action. When it comes down to it, Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void is just great storytelling." --Roqoo Depot
 
"A nice, compact Star Wars tale that both acts as an introduction to the Dawn of the Jedi period and a standalone story." --Club Jade
 
"A solidly enjoyable read . . . a nice addition to the Expanded Universe."-- Tosche Station
 
"A good solid Star Wars adventure story with heart." --Knights' Archive

Over 20,000 years before A New Hope, Lanoree Brock is a Je’daii ranger about to go on her most challenging mission yet. Damien Brock, the brother she thought long dead, is preparing to travel beyond the edge of known space using a mysterious device that runs on Dark Matter, risking a chain reaction that could destroy the entire system. Even with her Force talents and Je’daii sword, the mission will challenge her more than anything she’s ever seen and will take her past the breaking point. Taking place in an area of the universe completely unexplored by anyone else, Tim LeBron gives us a whole new side of Star Wars that no one ever thought existed. It has everything you expect to see from Star Wars, from the wide variety of Star Wars-type environments and planets to the themes like family conflict, along with new concepts of the Force not shown in other works. I actually can’t find anything I can complain about in this book. It’s great. So sit down, get a glass of water and prepare to spend your night seeing Star Wars in a whole different light.

So I got the book thinking of Jedi's and Lightsabers..
This book is based around 30,000 years before "Star Wars: A New Hope".
Basically its a book about the starting of the whole Jedi's.
But a Star Wars book with Lightsabers.... Not a Star Wars book at all :p
I only read the first few pages and could not get into it.
If anyone finishes this book. Please message me and tell me how it was.
