Synopsis:
Theron Shan, descendant of the legendary bloodline that includes Jedi Bastila Shan and Satele Shan, is no Jedi he's a Republic spy! His mission: to discover the blackest secret at the heart of the evil Sith Empire!
There are dark secrets behind the treaty that brought peace to the galaxy and an end to the war between the Jedi of the Republic and the Sith Empire. Now, with rumors of the secrets spreading, the galaxy is afraid a new war may be beginning . . .
Elite Republic spy Theron Shan has been assigned to find the old Jedi Master behind these rumors. Previously thought lost forever in Sith territory, Ngani Zho is back and more peculiar than before he left. Theron has his hands full with Zho, a troublesome thief, and the threatening Sith Knights who are also on Zho’s trail!
The war that ended in a tense peace agreement is in danger of beginning again, but elite Republic spy Theron Shan is going to do everything in his power to prevent it - including infiltrating the Imperial space of Darth Mekhis to find out what is happening! Along with Master Zho, and the criminal in his custody, Teff'ith, Theron is headed to Port Nowhere. He hasn't got a plan or any idea what he may be going to face, but for a spy, he's got great style!
Captured by the evil Sith Empire, Republic spy Theron Shan is about to find out what secret sacrifice brought about the end of the great war. But once the Imperial's covert activities are revealed, will he be able to act on his devastating discoveries?
Republic spy Theron Shan puts all he has into surviving—and stopping—the Sith’s star-killing Sun Razer. This megaweapon must be destroyed and the Republic must be warned of the threat!

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017
Being the best out of the three volumes doesn't speak much about this truly forgetable piece of fiction. At least it managed to take the best out of the first two: It took the basic cohesiveness of the first volume, and the slightly more interesting story of the second and combined it with the best art so far in this series. And by the cylon god am I glad I can put this series behind me.
The art is still pure ugly, the colors are unattractive, the characters are bland and the story is just barely interesting. The only thing that kept me going, was the knowledge, that this will end soon (and the need to get caught up on Theron Shan, who is to play a bigger part in further media - possibly a romance option for my Ashla Tano - Jedi Knight from the game).
It is a shame really, because Bioware has laid the foundation for some great storytelling and the books are perfect proof that it is indeed possible to write awesome tales in this era.

Review of Issue #1 by Nate, US, 2011:
I think the story will be great, Shan is cool. but I did not like the art work in the comic.
