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.

Excelent Story and another great Old Republic book
- Kurt Laaser
Best Star Wars I have ever read!
At this time, I have both read this book and listened to it. I love the different accents Marc Thompson gives the characters. I think I do like the audio version more.
The first, sort of, action scene where Theron steals the Black Cipher. It was a really fun part of the book.
While my favorite character is Theron (how can he not be!? He's the son of the 2 most freaking awesome characters ever!!!), I love the way Thompson preformed Teff'ith. I love her accent and the way he makes her sound. Not much different from the way I read her, but definitely gives more life to the character.
Star Wars meets 007 in this action adventure!
Again, this is the best Star Wars I have ever read. It was extremely fast paced and was filled with both intense action and some family drama. I suppose I am used to reading a series, but this book just blows every other single Star Wars book out of the park!
