The dark side could not seduce him,
the Empire could not control him,
death could not defeat him.
And now, nothing can stop him from seizing his destiny.
As ruthless apprentice to Darth Vader, Starkiller was mercilessly schooled in the ways of the dark side, commanded to exterminate the last of the purged Jedi Order, and groomed for the ultimate Sith power play: assassination of the Emperor. He served without question, killed without remorse, and lost his heart without warning to beautiful Imperial fighter pilot Juno Eclipse, never suspecting that he was just a tool in the schemes of his masters—until it was too late to escape their lethal betrayal.
Juno mourned Starkiller as dead…but now he is back, purged of all memories and programmed to kill. And as fate brings Juno and Starkiller closer to reuniting, with Darth Vader determined not to lose his assassin a second time, they will both have to make a stand. The prize is freedom. The punishment for failing will be eternal enslavement to the dark side of the Force…
The novel made a reference to a skirmish over Ylesia. In Rebel Dawn, the skirmish happened on Ylesia with the Corellian Resistance rescuing bunch of slaves. The Hutts that own the planet are sided with the Empire. Both the skirmish in Rebel Dawn and The Force Unleashed II story in the novel are one year before the Battle of Yavin.
