The graduation celebration for the first class of Imperial cadets is disrupted by a sudden terrorist strike! But the real targets of the attack are the new Emperor and his second in command, Darth Vader. Only one man—a disabled, brilliant cadet who, up until the moment of the attack, was experiencing the best moment of his life—stands ready to fight alongside Vader for the life of his Emperor!
Graduating cadet Tohm’s first night as an Imperial officer has already seen him assisting Darth Vader in fighting a traitorous uprising, saving Emperor Palpatine from a deadly plague weapon, and keeping the peace between Vader and the cybernetic Moff Trachta.
Now Tohm and Vader have infiltrated the deathly stillness of the abandoned Jedi Temple to confront the secrets of Vader’s past, and to learn the facts about the Ghost Prison!
Cadet Tohm, in the company of Darth Vader, Moff Trachta, and the wounded Emperor, has finally reached the mysterious Ghost Prison.
Vader battles the Jedi guard and Trachta wreaks vengeance on a particular prisoner. The Emperor’s condition is stabilized, but they must find a way to combat the uprising back on Coruscant. Vader plans to use the only army available to him—the inmates of the Ghost Prison. But the prisoners have begun to revolt...
It’s Vader versus the most dangerous inmates the Ghost Prison has to offer, and Cadet Tohm witnesses the Dark Lord at his fiercest—and most merciless.
The lesson is not lost on the young man, and Tohm follows Vader’s lead, finding strength—and darkness—he never knew he possessed. He is well on his way to becoming the kind of officer for which the Empire will become known. But the biggest test still lies ahead—retaking the Imperial Palace from the insurgents. Today a fight . . . tomorrow a war!
General Gentis’s plan to take over the fledgling Empire and depose the Emperor and Darth Vader is nearly complete. All that remains is to lure Grand Moff Tarkin to Coruscant and capture him.
But Gentis has not reckoned with the power of the dark side—or with the secrets of the Ghost Prison. War has come to Coruscant, and even thousands of loyal cadets and troopers are no match for what Vader has unleashed!

This story occurs months after Revenge of the Sith (approximately 19 years before the Battle of Yavin).
