Book Description

13 Nov 2012 Star Wars: The Old Republic
Based on the epic videogame from BioWare and LucasArts


The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser Ascendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.

But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force—but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal—which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror.

Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.

Praise for Annihilation
“An espionage story interwoven with personal conflicts . . . space battles, lightsaber fights, and gripping spy missions . . . Annihilation may be Karpyshyn’s strongest novel yet.”—Roqoo Depot
“Pure Star Wars action-adventure entertainment as only Drew Karpyshyn can write it.”—The Founding Fields

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars mixed with bond 5 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This story is Drew Karpyshyn at his best. This story takes place after the Immortal Sith Emperor is feared dead the Dark Counsel and Sith Lords are on the back foot in the war with the Republic. They have one major ace up their sleeves. The Ascendant Spear. The biggest, fastest, deadliest star ship ever created. It is an amalgam of engineering, Sith alchemistry (magic), and Human/Falleen interaction. Thanks to cybernetic enhancement a Sith Lord can take control of the ship and uses it as an extension of her own will.

Theron Shan is a Republic spy. He is a decedent of Star Wars The Old Republic - Revan but unlike his (secret) Jedi master mother he is not force sensitive, though is raised by another Jedi and taught methods of force meditation and other techniques. He believes in the Republic and has dedicated his life to protecting it, just not the Jedi way.

After being a maverick and compromising a secret Republic mission he is in the dog house, till he is called for a mission to destroy the Ascendant Spear, which could potentially end the war.

The great thing about the story is that you do not have to be a Jedi to make a difference. It is actually the little thing in this book that adds realism. All the characters know their limitations and have to make hard choices. I am looking forward to what happens next or before. I would love to know how the Emperor was actually killed (I mean this guy make Sidious look like a wuss), or even what is next for the Old Republic family.

3.0 out of 5 stars a different hero 26 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed that the story was not based around a jedi/sith hero and it developed known character backgrounds. If you are into the Old republic you will enjoy this book but i found myself thinking it was just to easy for him to bypass high security systems.

My favourite Star Wars author comes good again. Darth Bane is a hard act to follow but another Old Republic classic delivered by Drew Karpyshyn. Fully recommend this one for all fans of Star Wars and in particular the Old Republic era.

By Ian Tapley VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
(3,641 BBY) Set after the events of 'The Old Republic' computer game and following on from 'The Old Republic: The Lost Suns' comic books, this book reveals a galaxy where the Sith Empire is finally being defeated by the Republic but calls upon one last trump card; a near-invincible warship called the Ascendant Spear. Knowing that the Spear could turn the tide of the war once more, the Republic sets special agent Theron Shan and Jedi Master Gnost-Dural the task of taking the ship out of the fight.

I was a bit dubious about the idea of Theron Shan as this book's main protagonist but actually found it quite refreshing to read about a non-Force-sensitive who uses Jedi techniques whilst simultaneously scorning Jedi philosophy. He reads a little like James Bond, with a curious mix of morality and ruthless expedience. Gnost-Dural (the Jedi voiced by Lance Henrikssen in the online chronology for TOR) complements this well by being the sort of battle Jedi who doesn't agonise over every being he kills. I also enjoyed seeing the stuff going on behind the scenes in the war, with Darth Marr's desperate attempts to hold together the fragmenting Empire and the revelations about the history between Supreme Commander Jace Malcom and Grand Master Satele Shan being of particular interest.

It's a little hard to quantify, but overall this book just felt a bit shallow. It lacked the depth and complexity of say a Timothy Zahn novel, coming over much more pulpy. That's not always a bad thing, but I just feel (as with Karpyshyn's 'Revan') that the subject matter deserved a more in-depth, sweeping epic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old republic 20 July 2013
By vivekg
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The most recent book set in the old republic era in the star wars universe is an okay read, some good action sequences and Drew Karpyshyn uses a non-force user as protagonist (Theron) cleverly however the ending seemed too far-fetched as Theron defeated a sith lord with a broken gun. Good for a fan of star wars but the weakest book from Drew Karpyshyn.
