The reach of the New Republic is expanding, but the days of fighting for the galaxy have not ended. A threat against Princess Leia and Han Solo's family disrupts usual business on Coruscant--and Luke Skywalker's Jedi training on Yavin 4!
In another part of the galaxy, a former Imperial Guardsman turned bounty hunter, Kir Kanos, is ready to settle an old score after three years in hiding--if a new adversary doesn't kill him first!
Kir Kanos, the last surviving member of Emperor Palpatine's Royal Guards, has been "invited" to join a cadre of Imperial officers intent on returning the Empire to its former glory.
Meanwhile, the rising New Republic comes under fire when assassins put Kanos's adversary (and occasional romantic interest) Mirith Sinn in the crosshairs!
Kir Kanos strikes back at the Empire! Kidnapped and dragooned into a hard-liner Imperial plot, Kir Kanos, the last surviving member of Emperor Palpatine's royal guard, has had enough! He goes to war with one Imperial faction, even as Leia Organa Solo receives an invitation to meet with emissaries from another.
Treachery layered on treachery is revealed and Kanos answers it the only way he knows how - with violence!
Escaping from the Imperial hardliners who are intent on killing Leia Organa Solo and bringing the New Republic to its knees, Kir Kanos tries to warn his one-time enemies, only to be thrown into a New Republic prison.
Mirith Sinn is the only one willing to trust Kanos, but neither of them is aware of the extent of the Imperialsí plans. Itís not until Luke Skywalker plays a hunch that the true danger is revealed!
Kir Kanos, the last surviving member of the Emperor's Royal Guard, finds himself teamed with his former enemy Mirith Sinn on a mission for the New Republic. But their secret parley with an Imperial representative becomes an ambush from which some will not return!
Meanwhile, the Imperial hardliners reveal their true target!
It's the final showdown between Admiral Pellaeon's Imperial forces and those of his hardliner adversaries, with the New Republic joining in the fray!
The outcome could mean peace - or extended war for the galaxy. But will either alternative matter for the last surviving member of Emperor Palpatine's Royal Guard? Kir Kanos is a man on the edge - a man without a past, and only questions for the future!

This story occurs approximately 14 years after the Battle of Yavin.
