The Emperor's Plague
Bornan Thul's secret is out: he's been protecting a deadly plague that could devastate the galaxy if released. And the evil Nolaa Tarkona – of the Diversity Alliance – where it is hidden.
Now Jacen, Jaina, and their allies must race against time. As a massive battle rages between New Republic soldiers and the forces of the Diversity Alliance, the young Jedi Knights must find and destroy the plague before it can be released. But they first must face Nolaa Tarkona. And her very lethal hired hand, Boba Fett.
