For the infamous, power-hungry Sith, beholden to the dark side, the time has come to rise again.
After years of waiting in the shadows, Darth Sidious is taking the first step in his master plan to bring the Republic to its knees. Key to his scheme are the Neimoidians of the Trade Federation. Then one of his Neimoidian contacts disappears, and Sidious does not need his Force-honed instincts to suspect betrayal. He orders his apprentice, Darth Maul, to hunt the traitor down.

But he is too late. The secret has already passed into the hands of information broker Lorn Pavan, which places him right at the top of Darth Maul's hit list. Then, in the labyrinthine alleyways and sewers of Coruscant, capital city of the Republic, Lorn crosses paths with Darsha Assant, a Jedi Padawan on a mission to earn her Knighthood. Now the future of the Republic depends on Darsha and Lorn. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man, stranger to the powerful ways of the Force, hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy?
This special edition features an all-new Darth Maul short story as well as "Star Wars:® Darth Maul: Saboteur"--both written by New York Times bestselling author James Luceno!

This book ROCKS!
One of the best all out Star Wars books I have read, thus far.

If you are planning on watching Episode this book first. It really adds great detail to what is about to happen in Episode I. There are also great details regarding Jedi that are not mentioned in any of the movies....which, I find very interesting.

This is a must read.
I also recommend the book directly before this one in the timeline....Cloak of Deception. These two books are as good as the movies.

Awesome reading. Fast pace action from the first to the last page.
Do not recommend for bus-ride reading. You will surely miss your stop:-)
5* from me, enjoy.

It directly precedes the movie Star Wars 1: Fantom Menace. Literally. The last page is followed by the first scene in the movie.
