I was always led to believe that Darth Vadar was the most powerful Sith, and then in 'Jedi' he would fulfill the prophecy. Although awesome, this book and it's sequel do tend to give me the impression that Vadar's becoming an old man too quickly and that maybe there are others out there that could topple the empire, other than Luke. Otherwise, the story (& video game which I happily played out on Wii) pans out perfectly, filling in the gaps of story-line in Star Wars history.
There is an excellent level of detail in finding out how certain events took place in the Star Wars universe, all fitting beautifully well around the main story line of the secret apprentice. Sean Williams creates the emotions very well behind the apprentices actions and well describes his fierce dark side anger.
Being a sci-fi & general Star Wars fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Brilliant!
