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. But his future beckons 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. 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.

    " This book is the reason I was disapointed at the video game. The story is so great that I epect the video game to do a better job. But enough about the game. The book (as I've said) has a great story but there are moments of high action that you might find yourself skiming over. I know it's based on a video game but some of the action (namely on Raxus prime) seemed to much. Also I HATE the ideo of someone being this strong in the force, Anakin is "the choosen one" so shouldn't he be more powerful in thf force? I mean, he wasn't able to do this when he was Starkillers age so how can starkiller? But if your a star wars fan then you wont be disappointed by the story. "

    " It didn't take me long to beat the game, so I thought I'd read the book for a little more back-story. It didn't really offer anymore insite into the charactors. Kinda dissapointing, but I love Star Wars, so I went along with it. The movie-adaption books and prequels are better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 1/22/2014

    " This book is cool unless you all ready beat the video game than its just cool drawings.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 William | 1/17/2014

    " My mistake with this book was reading it after I had played the video game of the same name. The book too closely followed the game and rarely took any time to venture deeper or further into Galen Marek's story. It did however reveal a bit more about Juno Eclipse, and for that, I appreciate it. But this was nothing special, and not worth reading if you have played the video game to its completion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aqil Dhanani | 1/16/2014

    " You can definitely tell it was a video game. I haven't played the game, but the story was a nice prelude to A New Hope as it's about the formation of the Rebel Alliance. Some parts, such as the romance, as well as the description of the Force are kinda corny, but it was still engaging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/16/2014

    " I'm reading this with my child and while a book from a video game that's a spin-off of a blockbuster movie wouldn't be my usual pick, it's pretty good. I'd recommend it to die-hard Star Wars fans, who would probably find it a worthwhile addition to the Star Wars canon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dale | 1/6/2014

    " About as good as a book based on a video game could be. Then again, I am a Star Wars dork. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liam Klassen | 12/8/2013

    " I liked this book alot. It is really detailed and has a good story line. The only parts that I don't like is the boring parts with almost no action but, there is barely any of them. I hope that anyone who likes Star Wars, reads this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex Seals | 5/29/2013

    " The storyline in the video game was better. Who'd have thunk it? This book was just not that interesting to me. Still, it was a good story in and of itself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayla | 9/13/2012

    " This book was extremely good. It took the original story from the videogame and really beefed it up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryan | 9/3/2012

    " All the annoying tropes of novels in the Star Wars universe, with the added bonus of a plot adapted from an only-okay video game story. I only read it because the little on really badly wanted a copy in the house, I'd given up on the video game sometime back, and it was a fabulously quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 7/16/2012

    " The main character is very interesting, but the action scenes are pretty dull. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mekail Shah | 5/13/2012

    " This is great for die hard starwars fans. It is great because you here the story on how the rebel alliance was born also where there sign comes from. The story was exiting and had lots of suspense. If your a die hard starwars fan like me then this book is for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zarathos | 2/29/2012

    " Nothing surprising here... not a bad Star Wars book, especially for one based on a video game... but nothing to stand out here... Some of the Jedi tricks were a bit unbelievable (even for a being that can manipulate a mysterious energy for levitation, healing, lightning, etc.)... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 2/3/2012

    " It was a very enjoyable read. It did provide a nice back fill on the story of what might have happened as Vader went out and tracked down all the remaining Jedi. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy Lindsay | 10/12/2011

    " like lotsa sci-fi and fantasy, way thin on character development. i think i'm going to enjoy it as a Wii game about a hundred times more. but i also think i'll have some students this year who will bulk up some vocabulary and fluency muscles by having it in my class library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kris Irvin | 5/30/2011

    " A fun, quick read and a good one for any Star Wars fan. I could have done with more insight into Starkiller's brain, but for a book based on a video game it did really well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 4/25/2011

    " The beginning felt pretty slow to me but it picked up by the end. The pace felt like the second installment of a trilogy. Given the ending, I'm assuming there will be another installment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlos | 4/5/2011

    " not bad, but definatly not good either. The story at some points seem s like the auther was rushed to write a book thatwould tell t story of the game without fattening it up with little tid bits here and there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 4/2/2011

    " It was a good, fun read. Now I just need to beat the game. :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 angel_in_tears | 3/1/2011

    " Like the first book this was really hard to get in to and the storyline was just all over the place. It's the first time I've picked up a Star Wars book that I haven't liked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arby | 2/28/2011

    " nice book to read.
    overly focused on love rather than the rebellion though, but is still good.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor | 2/19/2011

    " Everything that the game should have been but wasn't. Action filed, good plots. Answers the question of how could Starkiller be alive?

    It even answers how Jedi can be cloned, when it was always thought impossible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maiya | 2/3/2011

    " After reading the first book of this series I had to finish the rest of the story. Very well written, although I did prefer the first book. I'm glad Juno and Starkiller finally are together after all they've been through! Nice job Sean Williams. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 2/1/2011

    " I thought book was draging on falh way through. They should have left it a video game. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DC | 1/25/2011

    " Very much better than the first installment. I actually cared about the characters. Good work, Sean Williams! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luqmaninbmore | 1/25/2011

    " Decent, escapist fiction set in the Star Wars universe. The action is fairly intense and the ending caught me by surprise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trinity | 1/24/2011

    " A good read for any Star Wars fan. I was impressed to read a "happy" ending. I was expecting a tragic & sad ending when it comes to Starkillers stories. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stefan | 11/15/2010

    " Nicht gerade ein Highlight der Star Wars-Literatur, aber im Vergleich zu "Eine unheilvolle Allianz" konnte sich der Autor deutlich steigern. Ein zweiter Timothy Zahn wird Sean Williams aber wohl nie werden... "

About the Author
Author Sean Williams

Sean Williams is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of several novels for adults, as well as the coauthor of the middle-grade series Troubletwisters with Garth Nix. As a resident of South Australia—which he reports is a lovely place a long way away from the rest of the world—Sean has often dreamed of stepping into a booth and being somewhere else, instantly. This has led to a fascination with the social, psychological, and moral implications of such technology. When not pondering such weighty matters, Sean can generally be found eating chocolate (actually, he eats chocolate while pondering these matters, too).
