Alright, this book is AMAZING!!! I love Star Wars a lot (and I’m trying not to post a lot of Star Wars), but this book is one of my favorites.

The book is about Darth Vader’s apprentice (which is so cool), and covers a lot of different stuff that wasn’t in the movies. It talks about how the Sith train and has lots of fight scenes. Some of the chapters are a bit… violent. And this book is also apparently a video game, and one I don’t want to play ’cause a lot of the fight scenes were… well… violent.

There is also some light romance, very light. The ‘romance’ is barely even there. It’s very slow and I think they maybe kissed once. I really don’t usually care for romance, but this one was OK and very appropriate.

Over all, this is a great book for anyone that likes the Star Wars stories. It’s just not really a kid-friendly Star Wars book.


  • Awesome adventure
  • Romance
  • Star Wars!!!


  • Has some violent scenes

The overthrow of the Republic is complete. The Separatist forces have been smashed, the Jedi Council nearly decimated, and the rest of the Order all but destroyed. Now absolute power rests in the iron fist of Darth Sidious–the cunning Sith lord better known as the former Senator, now Emperor, Palpatine. But more remains to be done. Pockets of resistance in the galaxy must still be defeated and missing Jedi accounted for . . . and dealt with. These crucial tasks fall to the Emperor’s ruthless enforcer, Darth Vader. In turn, the Dark Lord has groomed a lethal apprentice entrusted with a top-secret mission: to comb the galaxy and dispatch the last of his masters’ enemies, thereby punctuating the dark side’s victory with the Jedi’s doom.

Since childhood, Vader’s nameless agent has known only the cold, mercenary creed of the Sith. His past is a void; his present, the carrying out of his deadly orders. But his future beckons like a glistening black jewel with the ultimate promise: to stand beside the only father he has ever known, with the galaxy at their feet. It is a destiny he can realize only by rising to the greatest challenge of his discipleship: destroying Emperor Palpatine.

The apprentice’s journeys will take him across the far reaches of the galaxy, from the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk to the junkyard planet of Raxus Prime. On these missions, the young Sith acolyte will forge an unlikely alliance with a ruined Jedi Master seeking redemption and wrestle with forbidden feelings for his beautiful comrade, Juno Eclipse. And he will be tested as never before–by shattering revelations that strike at the very heart of all he believes and stir within him long-forgotten hopes of reclaiming his name . . . and changing his destiny.
