Internal FlapEdit

After Emperor Palpatine's death, the elite brotherhood of his Royal Guards is betrayed by one of their own, Carnor Jax, whose ambition is to put himself on Palpatine's throne. But Kir Kanos escapes the ambush that kills his fellow guardsmen and takes an oath of vengenace that will lead him to cut a bloody swath from one end of the galaxy to the other.

Along the way, Kanos will find himself allying with former Rebel enemies, assuming a false identity and becoming a feared bounty hunter, infiltrating the heart of the vast criminal organization known as Black Sun, bringing down two Imperial governments, and finally setting his sights on Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa Solo and Han Solo.

But Kanos's vendetta spawns another as New Republic commander Mirith Sinn makes him the target of her own revenge. And what of the mysterious Imperial cult that has its own plans for Palpatine's most loyal defender? Can revenge serve as its own reward? or is ther another way out of the cycle of vengeance?

The blood-soaked tale of a Royal Guard's revenge - Crimson Empire, Crimson Empire II: Council of Blood, and Crimson Empire III: Empire Lost - is collected for the first time in one volume, along with two tale-enhancing short stories.
