Synopsis:
Ex-Jedi Ferus Olin has been imprisoned by the Empire. His crime? Trying to save the Jedi Order.
The sinister Empire won't be able to hold Ferus for long, not when he has a friend on the inside. But escaping is only part of the problem. Ferus's quest is going to take him to the planet of Naboo, where a secret vital to the survival of the Jedi and the entire galaxy is being kept... and is in danger of being revealed.
In order to keep this secret, Ferus will have to face the ruthless Inquisitor Malorum. A battle will be fought and lives will be lost.
Who will die on Naboo?


Chronology:
This story occurs between approximately six to seven months after the events of Revenge of the Sith (18 and a half years before the Battle of Yavin).

Review by Bones, UK, 2012:

"As Ferus Olin awaits his own execution at the hands of the Empire, Inquisitor Malorum is getting closer and closer to the secret of the birth of Anakin Skywalker's offspring.
Jude Watson continues this rather epic story arc and, in fact, ties off some plot lines here. We get to see a face-off between the former Jedi and the Inquisitor, as well as seeing Trever's character developed quite nicely; we learn a little of his back story (only very little, admittedly) but enough to begin fleshing him out into more than just a sidekick with an ceaseless supply of glib comments.
The ending, sadly, felt a little rushed, with pieces falling a little too easily into place and "convenient" things happening. Nothing hugely wrong, but enough to cause perhaps a little discomfort when reading. The links with The Phantom Menace are also perhaps a touch laboured.
Regardless, a solid volume in the Last of the Jedi series."

Rating: 3 / 5
