5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars mixed with bond, 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Wars The Old Republic Annihilation (Hardcover)
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.
