A Ship is destroyed in space. All thatâ€™s found is a container and a signal transmitter. This debris is located in Hutt Space and put up on auction to the highest bidder. The secrets that are hidden though will require a joint force of The Republic, Mandalore, Jedi, the Empire, and the Sith in order to save the galaxy.
Set in the days of the Old Republic, this book gives us a view of a world where the Sith are as numerous as the Jedi. It wasnâ€™t a perfect book. The premise was a little overdone, ie. an undiscovered technology puts the galaxy in jeopardy. Itâ€™s been there, done that. Some of the characters were archtypes, ie. The Solidier, the Smuggler, The Spy, the Jedi, the Sith. Hmmm, and itâ€™s based on a game, wonder if that might be the reason.
I do think the novel was a fun story. When there was Sith or Jedi action, it really grabbed you. But I think unlike the Darth Bane series, the Sith and Jedi were just an â€œalso thereâ€ character, so you donâ€™t see as much of them as the cover would have you believe.
All in all for a story set in the ancient history of the Star Wars galaxies, I found it enjoyable. Not the best Iâ€™ve ever read, but a decent story and a good book to read to kill time.
