Based on the epic videogame from BioWare and LucasArts. The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy. But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force - but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal - which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror. Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark-side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.
Fool of intrigue and action, this book is a wonderful addition to the old republic line. With good plot and better twist this book will be a perfect buy for any Star Wars fan.
A good short story, not as detailed as the series novels but this one is satisfying. Of course Marc Thompson and his amazing voices make the story come alive as always. Can't wait for the next Star Wars novels!
Huge fan of the game and the stories born of it. Another fun book to add to the collective that makes any writing in the game look like the fumbling works of a pre-teen. Drew brings the characters in the game alive, bringing to the table a great plot, and executing it with fun and winding storytelling. Mark as always only makes the experience all the more enjoyable, and the tid-bits of music and sound effects always amaze and wow me at how much they add to the narrative. Star Wars fan must have in my opinion.
