Throughout the galaxy, it was believed that Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker–the Chosen One–had died on Coruscant during the siege of the Jedi Temple. And, to some extent, that was true. Anakin was dead.From the site of Anakin Skywalker’s last stand–on the molten surface of the planet Mustafar, where he sought to destroy his friend and former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi–a fearsome specter in black has risen. Once the most powerful Knight ever known to the Jedi Order, he is now a disciple of the dark side, a lord of the dreaded Sith, and the avenging right hand of the galaxy’s ruthless new Emperor. Seduced, deranged, and destroyed by the machinations of the Dark Lord Sidious, Anakin Skywalker is dead . . . and Darth Vader lives. Word of the events that created him–the Jedi Council’s failed mutiny against Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, the self-crowned Emperor’s retaliatory command to exterminate the Jedi Order, and Anakin’s massacre of his comrades and Masters in the Jedi Temple–has yet to reach all quarters. On the Outer Rim world of Murkhana, Jedi Masters Roan Shryne and Bol Chatak and Padawan Olee Starstone are leading a charge on a Separatist stronghold, unaware that the tide, red with Jedi blood, has turned suddenly against them.When the three narrowly elude execution–and become the desperate prey in a hunt across space–it’s neither clone soldiers, nor the newly deployed stormtroopers, nor even the wrath of the power-hungry Emperor himself they must fear most. The deadliest threat rests in the hideously swift and lethal crimson lightsaber of Darth Vader–behind whose brooding mask lies a shattered heart, a poisoned soul, and a cunning, twisted mind hell-bent on vengeance.For the handful of scattered Jedi, survival is imperative if the light side of the Force is to be protected and the galaxy somehow, someday reclaimed. Yet more important still is the well-being of the twin infants, Leia and Luke Skywalker, the children of Anakin and his doomed bride, Padmé Amidala. Separated after Padmé’s death, they must be made safe at all costs, lest the hope they represent for the future be turned to horror by the new Sith regime–and the unspeakable power of the dark side.From the Hardcover edition.
  • THE RISE OF DARTH VADER by James Lucerno.
    This novel is set immediately after the events of Episode III Revenge of the Sith and from the outset to me it is a pity that Matthew Stover did not write both books. I say this because reading the novelisation of REVENGE OF THE SITH was one of the literary highlights of 2012 and it would have enhanced this story by the length of the Kessel run if it was written in the same style. In one sense the story of Anakin Skywalker ends on Mustafar and yet George Lucas himself has said that episodes 1 through 6 complete the story of his rise fall and eventual redemption (if such a thing is possible). So what I am saying from the outset is that the novelisation of ROTS and this one is really a two part story which would have been a better read if written by the same author.

    (NOTE: I have come to realise that ROTS and this book are actually the final two thirds of THE DARK LORD TRILOGY so this criticism is clearly invalid. But I would like to leave this in my review as I refer to this paragraph later on. :-))

    That out of the way, I can say that there are moments of pure star wars magic to be found in this book. This first one left me breathless early on in the novel when we entered the tormented mind of Vader as he begins to comprehend what has happened, what he is and what he has become. Regrets begin to form in his soul and rise to the surface of his consciousness when he remembers what he was and what he could have been. Little facts are raised in the book which are fascinating to some readers (me!) but possibly pointless trivia to others.

    Part one of the book is compelling to say the least. We are on Murkhana when Order 66 is implemented and this is a well written but terrifying description of the mass murder of innocents under the guise of war. Part two - subtitled THE EMPEROR'S EMISSARY is when we are introduced to Vader for the first time in the book and this is where the heart of the reader really starts to pump. The story itself too jumps up a notch but in an attempt to humanise Vader it gets stuck in first gear for 50 pages or so. Anyway the heroes of this story become obvious given the context of what has gone before and it is easy to become attached emotionally to what is going on.

    Part three begins on Imperial Centre and obviously is used to set the scene for what happens in the tumultuous and apocalyptic (for some) climax to this tale. Palpatine (Sidious) is still manipulating his new apprentice but at least we signs of development and independent thought processes begin to rise from Vader. Part four is based on KASHYYYK and is the highlight of the book in an emotional sense as well as from the storytelling perspective. A group of renegade Jedi and their support crew decide to use Kashyyyk as a temporary base and when Vader turns up with his support crew they refuse to surrender. A fantastic battle ensues with lots of action, fight scenes and truly moving events and dialogue to entertain and educate the reader. This part of the book is also significant in terms of Vader's development in the dark side and it is easy to close your eyes and see the book "happen" in front of you as you read each page.

    With a deeply satisfying and equally emotional ending this book turned out to be one of the all time great EU novels. As I stated at the start of my review, the writing style is definitely different from that used by Stover in REVENGE OF THE SITH but looking back, that was definitely a good thing. I am not criticising Stover by saying this but even though the two books form the bulk of the same trilogy, they have to be sufficiently different in order to entertain and to give each writer his due. What Lucerno has achieved here is a classic star wars novel for the "new" star wars if you know what i mean. So in summary I give this book four stars out of five. The ending was awesome as I have said but held back by a minor lull in proceedings in part two. But definitely worth reading. The hard part now is to decide which SW book to read next!

  • I thought this boil did a great job getting into the inner mind of Vader and begin to explain and show how powerful he is! A must read for any Vader fan.

  • Really great read. Darth Vader fans will appreciate the detailed looks into Anakin and Vader's mindset, the deep thoughts and inner battle he has within himself. However I do feel that Vader us often pulled out of the spotlight and seems as he's playing second seat to the other characters in this book. You'll like the characters for the most part, (at least I did) but crave more Vader, like any star wars fan would

  • It was good and I enjoyed it greatly, reading through it in 3 days. However my only complaint about it is it did not spend nearly enough time going through Vader's perspective in my opinion. It could have spent more time exploring Anakin's mental transformation into Darth Vader.

  • I really love this book! It takes place right after Revenge of the Sith. Darth Vader is still struggling with the loss of Padme and getting used to his new suit. We also get to meet a few Jedi who still living after Order 66. It is very well written and I love getting to hear Vader's thoughts. I recommend this book to any Star Wars fan.

  • This was the first book I had read from James Luceno. I picked it up instead of moving on to the next set of books in the New Jedi Order which he also wrote. I was very impressed. His writing style is familiar and expected, a good thing in my opinion, and the story was well thought out even if the main hero, if there was one, wasn't very well defined. This is definitely about Vader and anything beyond him felt a bit like filler but necessary filler and definitely didn't detract from the story. Throwing in a few characters from the movies, besides Vader, was a nice idea but don't expect their story lines to really be fleshed out here. All in all I am glad I picked this book up and enjoyed the story. I'm feeling better about continuing the New Jedi Order series knowing what to expect from Luceno now and am looking forward to reading his others as well. One issue for me, and this is not the author's fault, I started playing Star Wars: The Force Unleashed right after I finished reading Dark Lord and the origin story of the main character steps all over Vader's visit to a certain planet in this book. Someone at Lucas dropped the ball.

  • Some people didn't feel that this book focused enough on Darth Vader and it is true that he is not the primary focus, despite the title. It does include some pretty cool new characters like Roan Shryne and Olee Starstone.

    I'm just going to give a brief word as other reviewers have thoroughly discussed it. The book picks up right before Order 66 is given, when Shryne and a group of Clones were on a raid. The order is given and Shryne escapes. In the mean time, you get a look at how Vader is dealing with his injuries and his new bionics. There is a lot of action and an all out great adventure.

    I highly recommend, if you haven't already, picking up Star Wars, Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (which was much better than the movie) and Labyrinth of Evil (Star Wars, Episode III Prequel Novel).

  • This is a perfect sequel to Episode III. I have read some of the other reviews stating that people were disappointed that Darth Vader is not mentioned early on in the book. So what! When he does arrive, it just makes it even more worthwhile to read.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. After just finishing Star Wars: Darth Plagueis, this was a perfect book to start. Both books are by Lucerno, who by the way, should write ALL Star Wars expanded universe books from now on. He just gets the way the books should be.

    The only problem with this book is that, after I finished reading it, I am sort of lost on what SW book I should get next. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am looking to continue where this book left off.
