Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For the infamous, power-hungry Sith, beholden to the dark side, the time has come to rise again.

“Full of lightsaber battles, the Jedi philosophy, and lots of new life-forms.”—Chicago Sun-Times

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. Key to his scheme are the Neimoidians of the Trade Federation. Then one of his Neimoidian contacts disappears, and Sidious does not need his Force-honed instincts to suspect betrayal. He orders his apprentice, Darth Maul, to hunt the traitor down.

But he is too late. The secret has already passed into the hands of information broker Lorn Pavan, which places him right at the top of Darth Maul’s hit list. Then, in the labyrinthine alleyways and sewers of Coruscant, capital city of the Republic, Lorn crosses paths with Darsha Assant, a Jedi Padawan on a mission to earn her Knighthood.

Now the future of the Republic depends on Darsha and Lorn. 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?

Critic reviews

“Reaves writes with a creative flair, allowing readers to experience an almost cinematic sensation as they move through the story. The language is colorful, the action scenes are dynamic, and the dialogue is realistic.... Shadow Hunter is a very good Star Wars novel that reads as easily as a comic book.... Reaves does an excellent job.”—Winston-Salem Journal

Good

it was a good book, one of the better Star Wars with one of the best narators I have heard. SPOILER: Accept for the last 30 minutes, I didn't finish it as it was so rediculous and out of character to go hunting for Darth Maul on his own, rather than telling the Jedi about what at happened. Good book but completely ruined by the ending.

Scintillating

Beloved Star Wars fan and talented voice actor Sam Witwer gave a performance worthy of the story that surpassed expectations, navigating skilfully and satisfyingly beyond the threat of poor retcon
