I recently obtained the first book in the Fate of the Jedi series from Del Rey Ballantine Books in the Star Wars universe, Fate of the Jedi Outcast by Aaron Allston.

Update 6 July 2009:
In following the Legacy of the Series, the Fate of the Jedi picks up several years later. Luke Skywalker is faced with consequences of Jacen Solo’s choices in becoming Darth Caedus and impacting the future of the galaxy. To make matters worse, Jedi Valin Horn is inflicted with a mysterious disease resulting in more tension with Natasi Daala’s government. The new government is bent on placing blame on him and the Jedi Order. Therefore, a critical choice is made, Luke Skywalker will go into exile to find the answers. He and his son, Ben, head out on the Jade Shadow to the mystics world of Dorin, the home world of the former Old Republic Jedi Master Plo Koon. He learns new techniques which could help him determine what lead to Jacen downfall. However, he and Ben soon realize that they must also help the mystics understand the wrongness of hiding.
Meanwhile, other events are in motion. The Jedi Order are in a race to find what is the cause of Valin’s behavior. But, the government has no interest in assisting them. They decree that observers must be assigned to every Jedi so that they are following government rules. Escaping this order, Han and Leia Solo seek to aid Lando Calrissian with an interesting problem in the mines of Kessel.
