Publisher's summaryEdit

A ROGUE'S END! All good things must come to an end. Unfortunately, so must all evil things. And probably also all things somewhere-in-the-middleit's-complicated. Renegade archaeologist DOCTOR APHRA has been outrunning fate far longer than anyone dared hope. But her time is finally up. DARTH VADER stalks her through the shadows of an ancient temple, and this time? Only one of them will be leaving in one piece.

Plot summaryEdit

A ROGUE'S END
Part IV
Imperial agent turned Rebellion leader Magna
Tolvan finally had the elusive Doctor Aphra right
where she wanted her…until Aphra tricked her
rebel pursuers and escaped.

But Tolvan and Aphra have a messy history, and
following an intense battle the two reignited
their romance. After, Aphra used her electro-
tattoos to learn the location of the Rebellion's
new base…Hoth.

Now, Aphra's escaped again, but not before
saving her father, Korin, and sending his shuttle
to rendezvous with her sidekick, Vulaada, who's
been on the run from vicious alien beasts. And
Aphra's informed Vader that she's learned where
the Rebels are hiding....
