After the events chronicled in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, fans have been wondering what Darth Vader did next after his transformation from Anakin Skywalker into a cyborg-human Sith Lord. James Luceno picks up during the last days of the Clone Wars, when the new Darth Vader must come to terms with his new life and his overwhelming desire for revenge against those he feel wronged him in his previous life. The transformation of Anakin into the Emperor's chief assassin is not an easy one, but he finds his focus when he begins to hunt down and kill the remaining few Jedi Knights. On the Outer Rim world of Murkhana, Jedi Masters Roan Shryne and Bol Chatak and Padawan Olee Starstone are some of the few Jedi Knights remaining alive. When their clone allies suddenly turn against them, they are forced to go on the run in a world that has suddenly turned viciously hostile to all Jedi. And the newly-minted Lord Vader will not rest until they are all dead. James Luceno keeps the action moving and ties up several loose ends from the film, making this a must-read for Star Wars fans.
