Ki-Adi-Mundi's first assignment after joining the Jedi
Council will take him back to the fearsome deserts of
Tatooine! The Jedi Council has tracked a long-wayward
and powerful Jedi to the backwater world, and it's up to
Ki to find him and convince him to return.
Unfortunately, not only does he not want to return, but
a powerful enemy has the Jedi in her sights, and a
blaster bolt can travel a long way across the desert
flats of Tatooine!
As Ki-Adi-Mundi prepares to return to the desert wastes
of Tatooine in search of a wayward Jedi, he is stopped
by an old friend and mentor. The Dark woman has news for
the Cerean Jedi, and he's not going to like it! Once on
Tatooine, Ki meets with the crime lord Jabba the Hutt.
Despite the fact that the slimy crime lord had only
recently threatened the life of Ki's daughter,
Ki-Adi-Mundi has no choice but to ask for Jabba's aid in
his search. Ki receives the aid, but nothing from Jabba
the Hutt is ever free!
Only the hardiest beings in the galaxy can withstand the
blistering sands of Tatooine for very long, so one can
only imagine the fortitude of the nomadic Tusken Raiders
who make their home there. But even the toughest among
the Sand People, Sharad Hett, may not be able to survive
an attack by the dreaded krayt dragon, Tatooine's
fiercest predator, unless Jedi Ki-Adi-Mundi offers to
Ki-Adi-Mundi is coming closer to discovering if the
mysterious leader of the Tusken Raiders is the legendary
Jedi Sharad Hett. Only two things stand in his way: the
vicious krayt dragon of Tatooine and the Jedi-killing
bounty hunter Aurra Sing!
Bounty hunter Aurra Sing has located the Tusken camp
where Ki-Adi-Mundi and Sharad Hett have hidden
themselves. Now it's time for her boss, Gardulla the
Hutt, to turn up the heat and eliminate the Tusken
Ki and the Tuskan settlement are under attack from a mob
of citizens goaded on by Gardulla the Hutt. As if that
weren't enough, Aurra Sing chooses that moment to appear
and cause even more trouble. Epic battles, revealed
secrets, and a hero falls.
