Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

The hunt for the emperor's apprentice continues in this tale of Sith vs. Sith!

Proving his worth to the Dark Council by capturing Exal Kressh may be the end of young Sith Teneb Kel; and a brief encounter with his skilled prey brings some questions to the surface...Why would a loyal apprentice betray her emperor and the entire Sith Empire?

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Along with his Abyssin slave Maggot, Teneb Kel follows the Emperor's instructions to search for Kressh in the Lenico system,[2] but when he encounters Kressh, she easily defeats him and destroys the space station they are on before escaping. Kel makes it to his ship, but Maggot is forced to land the damaged craft on the desert world of Lenico IV. Still injured, Kel heads out to salvage the wreckage of the crashed station to repair his ship, but he collapses and is forced to make camp. Kel then experiences a Force vision of an armored figure named Darth Thanaton and Kressh, who explains how the Emperor seeks to create unknowing agents of his will across the galaxy.[1]
