"Let me point out that if Luke Skywalker was after power, he wouldn't have needed to destroy the Death Star, or fight Emperor Palpatine hand to hand, or help his sister found the New Republic. All Master Skywalker would have needed to do would have been to join his father, Darth Vader, at the right hand of the Emperor, and in that case his power would be unlimited, and you and I and everyone here would either be dead or enslaved." -Cal Omas

"What the Empire would have done was build a super-colossal Yuuzahn Vong-killing battle machine. They would have called it the Nova Colossus or the Galaxy Destructor or the Nostril of Palpatine or something equally grandiose. They would have spent billions of credits, employed thousands of contractors and subcontractors, and equipped it with the latest in death-dealing technology. And you know what would have happened? It wouldn't have worked. They'd forget to bolt down a metal plate over an access hatch leading to the main reactors, or some other mistake, and a hotshot enemy pilot would drop a bomb down there and blow the whole thing up. Now that's what the Empire would have done." -Han Solo

It takes a little bit for Destiny's Way to pick up, but once it does, it's pretty good.
In this book, Jacen and Vergere return back into the main story with the rest of the characters after being stuck on the changed Coruscant. We get to see a little bit of the Imperial remnant that has been sort of absent in the series up until now, and there is also a lot of parts where the Yuuzhan Vong make plans to defeat the New Republic.
This book also expands on the character Omini, and it becomes clear that he's going to be very important in the rest of the books in this series.
One of the things I really liked about this book was all its references to the prequel and original trilogy, and other E.U-Legend books. I also enjoyed reading all of Luke and Vergere's discussions and arguments. Some of the things they talked about were very interesting.
There was also a little bit of humor in here, and I think that's always good for a serious book.
Destiny's Way has a lot of important things happen and is one of the better New Jedi Order books that I have read.
