By John Ostrander & Jan Duursema (Dark Horse Books)
When the shattered Empire’s remnants retreated into uncharted space The New Republic became the administrators of the galaxy. Luke Skywalker re-established the Jedi Knights as a peace-keeping force throughout the now peaceful worlds. And then the extra-galactic invaders known as the Yuuzhan Vong attacked.
Their devastating depredations were only finally countered by a desperate alliance of New Republicans and Imperial Remnants. The marauders were eventually defeated and interned on the planet Zonoma Sekot.
Now a new Sith threat has destroyed the fragile alliance and set the galaxy ablaze again. The deadly Darth Krayt re-forged the age-old connection with the Empire and the hard-pressed Jedi are once again losing…
Set about 125 years after the events of the film Return of the Jedi, this is the tale of Cade, a no-good petty thug and the last member of the Skywalker bloodline. As the Dark Side seems to on the verge of a final victory, is this grim, vicious, charismatic thug truly the last, best hope for peace and justice?
