Staff Reviews

Required reading for any Star Wars fan – and especially if you wanted closure to Ventriss’ arc from The Clone Wars. Full of twists and turns, this book is one of the best Star Wars stories put to paper. I loved the touching and appropriate ending to the story of the assassin Asajj Ventriss.

— Jesse


Based on unproduced episodes of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars, "this new novel features Asajj Ventress, former Sith apprentice turned bounty hunter and one of the great antiheroes in the"Star Wars" galaxy.
"The only way to bring down the Sith's most dangerous warrior may be to join forces with the dark side."
In the war for control of the galaxy between the armies of the dark side and the Republic, former Jedi Master turned ruthless Sith Lord Count Dooku has grown ever more brutal in his tactics. Despite the powers of the Jedi and the military prowess of their clone army, the sheer number of fatalities is taking a terrible toll. And when Dooku orders the massacre of a flotilla of helpless refugees, the Jedi Council feels it has no choice but to take drastic action: targeting the man responsible for so many war atrocities, Count Dooku himself.
But the ever-elusive Dooku is dangerous prey for even the most skilled hunter. So the Council makes the bold decision to bring "both" sides of the Force's power to bear pairing brash Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos with infamous one-time Sith acolyte Asajj Ventress. Though Jedi distrust for the cunning killer who once served at Dooku's side still runs deep, Ventress's hatred for her former master runs deeper. She's more than willing to lend her copious talents as a bounty hunter and assassin to Vos's quest.
Together, Ventress and Vos are the best hope for eliminating Dooku as long as the emerging feelings between them don t compromise their mission. But Ventress is determined to have her retribution and at last let go of her dark Sith past. Balancing the complicated emotions she feels for Vos with the fury of her warrior's spirit, she resolves to claim victory on all fronts a vow that will be mercilessly tested by her deadly enemy . . . and her own doubt.
