Dark Disciple

Dark Disciple
(Star Wars)
by Christie Golden (2015)

Based on unproduced scripts from the blockbuster TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars! Set in 19 BBY.

The only way to bring down the dark side’s most dangerous warrior may be for Jedi and Sith to join forces.

The Jedi council bring together Quinlan Vos:

with Asajj Ventress:

to bring down Count Dooku.

Given that we know Dooku will not die until later, this makes an interesting read. At first, it is a bit difficult to get into, mainly due to extraneous characters that get cast aside. When the plot narrows down to the three main characters, things get more interesting. There are a lot of plot twists and characters surviving to keep the plot going. But in the end, there are losses, just not predictable ones.

So in the end, a good read for those wanting some background stories before the time of Darth Vader.
