A rebel pilot and a rogue archaeologist delve into the darkest shadows of the galaxy side by side, as Luke Skywalker reluctantly teams up with Doctor Aphra! The not-so-good Doctor will make Luke an offer he can't afford to pass up... one that leads him to a very rare gathering at the heart of the infamous Screaming Citadel! Will Luke find what he's looking for? Can Aphra be trusted? Or will they both wind up victims of the Citadel's queen? And as this unlikely duo steps right into the lair of one of the most powerful, reclusive and dangerous women in the galaxy, can Han and Leia be far behind them?

This story occurs between six and twelve months after Episode IV: A New Hope.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2018:

It started out interesting with spectacular art, but it degraded even below the level of the Harbinger disaster. Now we have achieved a new low for any sort of Star Wars material. Not only is this absolute blasphemy, it is an insult to the reader. Marvel's writing at this point is equally bad as EA’s approach to gaming.
To highlight just how bad it is, there is one scene, were Luke is faced with an overwhelming situation. He can come out on top of things, if he applies correct force techniques. And the dialogue explaining it to Luke goes like this: “Concentrate here, here and… >You guessed it< HERE”.
At no point in history was Jar Jar or fart jokes in Phantom Menace as bad as this. The only redeeming element is sometimes the art.
This was so bad, I feel physically sick after reading it. Even on a second rated fan page with bad fan fiction, this would stand out as spectacularly bad.
Seldom we get a great titles like Darth Maul or some of the Darth Vader volumes (definitely not all), but Marvels incompetence at storytelling is truly baffling me.

Rating: 0.5 / 5
