Exile is the fourth book in the Legacy of the Force series, and is written by Aaron Allston. It was released on February 27, 2007 in paperback form. The story takes place in the Star Wars expanded universe, 40 years after the Battle of Yavin.
Jacen Solo increases in popularity with each victory over the Corellian rebels. He attempts to advance his goal of galactic peace in the midst of war. Most of his family opposes Jacen's new attempts, as they fear that the war is being exploited by a mysterious power for personal gain.
The Corellians set a trap for the Alliance, by sending out a false trail by claiming that they are hosting a secret election to choose a leader. The Alliance falls for it by planning an attack at the election and their fleet gets trapped in a mine field. Jacen Solo also gets trapped on the gas planet the fake election was being held and his family and Lumiya help him to escape. Luke and Lumiya shake hands without attacking each other. All of the main characters survive.
Another conspiracy leads Luke's son Ben to Ziost, a Sith homeworld. It is filled with many dangers, the largest being the sheer amount of dark side power that would rattle even the strongest Jedi. His journey on Ziost leads Ben to find a Sith Meditation Sphere, which he uses to escape the planet.
Exile reached 8 on the New York Times bestseller list on March 18, 2007.
