    It was a close tie between Traitor and Star by Star, but I finally went with SbS. Anakin Solo's death, the fall of Jaina, the capture of Jacen, and the conquest of Coruscant, is a hard book to beat.

    By the way, might wanna check some previous threads, Lord. I believe this poll has been done before, albeit not a complete listing of the series.

    i didn't like any of these series of books, i don't like the way they are bringing in an almost unbeatable alien race that is virtually impossible to stop.

    Since I've only read the first three, I can't say anything about the others. But I really liked the Dark Tide Duology.

    Well then refrain from posting in this thread. On top of that, it is obvious that you haven't read much of the series in the first place. The Vong aren't unbeatable, as those of us who have read the books can testify.

    The New Jedi Order is the best of Star Wars. Period.

    I must agree with Nova Spice, Darth Bile. You're my bud in all those chats , but I think the purpose of the thread is so people who are fans of the series can gather and express their views.

    That being said, I liked Vector Prime. Just did.

    i have read won't say all, cause i haven't, but most of them, and i didn't say they were unbeatable, but virtually unbeatable. and not putting the series down at all, they were all well written, at least the ones i've read where, great plots and stuff, just don't like the villians is all.

    It was a close one, but I had to give my vote for the best NJO era story to The Unifying Force (despite my reservations on the death of Admiral Ackbar). I think the story wraps up the series quite nicely, and leaves the door wide open in regard to where the franchise will go. I'm a firm believer that we'll see several new frontiers throughout the SW galaxy as the different races collect themselves following the Vong War under the generally benevolent eyes of the GFFA. It'll be likely be a very exciting setting not seen since when the Old Republic was first "born"...a long, long time ago.

    I've only read through Dark Journey so far (don't have a lot of reading time with school), but I liked Star By Star the best so far.

    I nearly pulled my hair out trying to pick one, but i went with Traitor. I just really liked that one. Star By Star was a close second and tied Destinys Way. Unifying Force was a bit of a let down for me as i though the ending wasn't great, but in all the entire book was great. I've mixed feelings of some of the ones in between. Their wasn't a bad book among them, though some things like Tahiri developing vongsense, inconsistant development for Jacen, etc that i didn't like. But again, i dont think their was a bad one out their.

    Destiny's Way is my favorite book because it is the turn for the wirse for the Vong. It's when they start losing and I love to see those guys lose. My favorite Duology in the Series is Enemy Lines series. That series brings out the Wedge we know and love. It also is around the first time the New Republic out tricks the Vong in a serious way. I just love that series.

    I think I'll have to go with Destiny's Way, largely for the same reason as Jedi Master Talon - the good guys finally got their act together and really achieved something. There are certainly some things I don't like in it - Vergere's manipulation of Luke like he's some fresh-faced student for example - but there's plenty of enjoyment that makes up for them.

    Star by Star came a close second. I think perhaps on its own it may be a better book, but by that point I had war fatigue and was a little fed up with the constant death and destruction. The Rebel Lines duology were excellent as well, but not quite momentous enough to come into the running.

    I think Nova's second choice, Traitor is a surprising one. This is a book that challenges our view of the Force in a way that may not be for the best. Even on its own terms it has some problems. Also any Star Wars book that contains the term "epistemology" in the first few pages is treading a fine line. That said, it did make more a lot more sense the second time I read it and it is certainly well and imaginatively written.

    As you can see from my name, Corran Horn is my favorite character as well as jedi for now.

    Figured you would, Janson

    I thought Traitor increased the standard of Star Wars literature in ways that haven't been seen since the inception of Tim Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy. Matthew Stover did an incredible job of broadening the horizons of the Force and of the Jedi.

    But, without a doubt, Star by Star is not only my favorite NJO novel, but also my favorite Star Wars novel in general.
