–Ben KenobiThe dark times are here. Even as the worlds of the former Republic are drawn into the iron grip of Palpatine’s Empire, the galaxy seems adrift in a sea of chaos, lawlessness, and despair.

How many bad deeds can be justified by one good deed? In order to help his friend Bomo Greenbark, Jedi Dass Jennir has been forced into a series of questionable actions–and none is more potentially destructive than the one he now contemplates.

Or is this the true genius of Palpatine’s evil? The Jedi, their status destroyed and their order broken, must now become outlaws and lawbreakers in order to do what was once considered their duty.

The dark times have barely begun, and already Dass Jennir is so engulfed in darkness, he wonders if he will ever find his way back!

It’s the end of a quest, but not the end of the road. Yet paths diverge, alliances are split, and doing the right thing has become a betrayal. The chaos of the Clone Wars and the darkness of Palpatine’s Empire have allowed a smaller, more personal-but no less deadly-evil to flourish, and confronting it changes everything.

After all he’s done, can Dass Jennir still call himself a Jedi? After all that has happened, can Bomo Greenbark find the strength to go on?

The first story arc set in this new, uncharted era of Star Wars history reaches an unexpected conclusion. Quite possibly the darkest Star Wars story you’ll ever read!
