Darth Sidious has made a deal with several Neimodian leaders to create a political crisis by having the Trade Federation blockade the planet of Naboo. Sidious sends his apprentice Darth Maul to find the traitor. What assignment did you have to save what you need to accomplish? The only other 'main character' is Obi-Wan still a Padawan , although he plays a peripheral and frankly useless role in the novel. He was born to fight and kill Jedi, not cowardly Neimoidians. I found myself, if not rooting for the heroes, at least hoping they give Maul a hard time of it.
Key to his scheme are the Neimoidians of the Trade Federation. This gives Lorn and I-Five the opportunity to escape. This is no Darth Bane, but it at least reinvigorated my commitment to read the entire Universe throughout the year. This was a story found in the pages of the Star Wars: Visionaries, a collection of stories written and drawn by concept artists who worked on Revenge of the Sith. We all know that Anakin will become Vader, but what is most interesting is how that happens. I haven't read it yet, but maybe try Tarkin? The future of the Republic depends on Darsha and Lorn. Perhaps it landed there 100 years ago? And if you meet any characters you didn't see in the movie and see them going against the villain, it's a pretty safe bet they won't make it to book's end.
It's also a direct build-up to said movie as it's set directly before the events of it. Plus, we see a character who has a reason to hate the Jedi, yet when he faces on personally, realizes that there is more to them than meets the eye unlike the Jedi-haters from Traviss' books. But he is too late. And I5, of course, is a hoot. He has guts, he has courage, and he has a friend who helps him along. Meanwhile, a Jedi Padawan named Darsha Assant is faced with the Jedi Trials to finally become a full-fledged Jedi Knight by saving Oolth the Fondorian, a Black Sun member, and get some information out of him of Black Sun's destruction which had been caused by Maul in the previous novel Darth Maul: Saboteur.
Darth Maul is one of my favourite Star Wars villains. The service is expected to debut sometime in the fall of 2019. After years of waiting in the shadows, Darth Sidious is taking the first step in his master plan to bring the Republic to its knees. When the Neimoidian, Hath Monchar, shows up with a very interesting holocron with information about an actual, living - and evil-plotting - Sith Lord, Lorn knows he's got something really hot. Aparte de los personajes que acabo de mencionar, me gustó que hablaran del Código Jedi y que gracias a Darsha Assant haya logrado entenderlo y ver que no es el rollo tan estricto que me parecía antes. Darth Maul, Shadow Hunter takes place in a time shortly before The Phantom Menace. Some is given on this, but not a lot.
Any sense of defying his master is described as never even having been a thought for him, not an option o begin with. This edtion has the short story Darth Maul Restraint. The story Darth Maul: Saboteur by James Luceno is published as a 54-page insert in the paperback version of Shadow Hunter. After years of waiting in the shadows, Darth Sidious is taking the first step in his master plan to bring the Republic to its knees. Reaves also gets props for rectifying some canon issues with his book. Maul feels that this hunt and kill mission is beneath him - he is a Sith.
Resurrection This is one of the more off-the-wall Darth Maul stories. Also the Taozin, that giant transparent lobster in the lower levels. He's in all out action here and we get to see him in top form. I had no idea this book would be so enjoyable. That whole thing about the Sith being an ancient race overtaken by evil Jedi? Pavan is a low level criminal, but not completely inept and not unintelligent.
Then one of his Neimoidian contacts disappears, and Sidious does not need his Force-honed instincts to suspect betrayal. How he longed for the day when their Temple would be a ruin of of smoking rubble, littered with their crushed corpses. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man, stranger to the powerful ways of the Force, hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy? At this point in Star Wars chronology Darth Maul is not a Sith we should respect. He grabs it, unaware that he has now earned a place on Darth Maul's hit list, right behind the Neimoidian defector himself. It has a Maul short story about him before he fights the Jedi on Naboo. Shadow Hunter made that difficult, with its thriller-style plotting and series of complications and cliffhangers.
We meet Lorn through a series of unfortunate circumstances in his dealings as an information broker. Toda su caracterización se reduce a lo mucho que odia a los Jedi y las ganas que tiene de trincárselos a todos. These qualities really stand out to me and make Lorn Pavan Jax Pavan's father a much more approachable character. He'd chase them, they'd either try to fight and have to run away or just simply run away and he'd continue to chase them. Needless to say, Sidious sends the ultimate hitman to take Hath out before he squeals - Darth Maul.
