(Star Wars: Darth Maul #2)
by Michael Reaves (2001)
For the infamous, power-hungry Sith, beholden to the dark side, the time has come to rise again.
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.
What I liked about this book was that it was unpredictable. It’s set before the events of ‘The Phantom Menace’, so we know that Darth Maul has to survive . But what about the Jedi and other participants. Will they survive ?
The plot twists and turns to keep you guessing right up to the end.
