about

The turning point for the entire Star Wars saga is at hand

After years of civil war, the Separatists have battered the already faltering Republic nearly to the point of collapse. On Coruscant, the Senate watches anxiously as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine aggressively strips away more and more constitutional liberties in the name of safeguarding the Republic. Yoda, Mace Windu, and their fellow Masters grapple with the Chancellor’ s disturbing move to assume control of the Jedi Council. And Anakin Skywalker, the prophesied Chosen One, destined to bring balance to the Force, is increasingly consumed by his fear that his secret love, Senator Padmé Amidala, will die.

As the combat escalates across the galaxy, the stage is set for an explosive endgame: Obi-Wan undertakes a perilous mission to destroy the dreaded Separatist military leader General Grievous. Palpatine, eager to secure even greater control, subtly influences public opinion to turn against the Jedi. And a conflicted Anakin–tormented by unspeakable visions– edges dangerously closer to the brink of a galaxy-shaping decision. It remains only for Darth Sidious, whose shadow looms ever larger, to strike the final staggering blow against the Republic . . . and to ordain a fearsome new Sith Lord: Darth Vader.

Based on the screenplay of the eagerly anticipated final film in George Lucas’s epic saga, bestselling Star Wars author Matthew Stover’s novel crackles with action, captures the iconic characters in all their complexity, and brings a space opera masterpiece full circle in stunning style.

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST for star wars loves The dark lord Trilogy is an absolutly wonderful series. the books can capture people who have seen revenge of the sith. or have followed the star wars saga. its very well written and easy to read although some people who are newly introduce to the star wars galaxy may have trouble understand the planets and people. James luceno has perfectly caputured character such as: yoda, Obi-wan and (of course) skywalker himself, reading this book truly lets you understand anakins journey through his jedi training and into his dark side, I reccomend this to anyone who is intrested in star wars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read this book, watch the movie Unlike some movie novelizations, this one stays true to the most important points of the film, while still adding interesting tidbits of info and insight about the characters (especially Anakin) that the film does not have time to explore. Stover has quickly become one of my favorite Star Wars novelists. Keep them coming.
