In hiding for generations, the Sith have waited for the precise moment to reveal themselves to the galaxy. Hoping to catch the Jedi unaware, Lord Sidious and his deadly apprentice, Darth Maul, have planned and waited patiently for their moment to pounce. Unfortunately, in the days before the Trade Federation blockade of the planet Naboo, Lord Sidious becomes aware of a threat to his plans. This threat comes from the deadly galactic crime organization Black Sun. But Sidious won't stand for any opposition, and Darth Maul is sent to deal with Black Sun -- as only a master of the dark side can!
The criminal organization Black Sun is feared across the galaxy. There is very little that their power and corruption do not influence. But now the tables are turned as the scheming Sith Lord, Darth Sidious, has sent his merciless enforcer, Darth Maul, to make sure that Black Sun stays out of his affairs. Gaining entrance to Black Sun, Maul works his way to the inner sanctum of the organization -- and that's when the destruction begins!
The ultimate enforcer, Darth Maul, continues his single-handed decimation of the ranks of the galactic crime syndicate Black Sun. As lieutenant after lieutenant falls under the swift blade of Maul's cold wrath, Black Sun pulls itself together to discuss how to deal with this new theat. Aware of Black Sun's plan, Maul shows up at Black Sun headquarters just as the in-fighting starts, and all hell breaks loose -- Maul-style!
With Sith Lord Darth Sidious' master plan for the overthrow of the Republic in jeopardy, Sidious' apprentice and enforcer Darth Maul has cut his way through the ranks of the galactic crime syndicate Black Sun, and now there is only one barrier left between Maul and Black Sun's total destruction. Maul must go toe-to-toe with the personal bodyguards of Black Sun's top lieutenants before he can reach the pinnacle of their organization!

This story occurs 32 years before the Battle of Yavin, just prior to the events of The Phantom Menace.

Review by J. L. Polacek, USA, 2012:
"A very interesting story by far. It's show how the great Sith warrior Darth Maul was unleashed before Episode I. It showed him to be a very strong creature of the dark side. It showed his devotion to Darth Sidious to unrelenting and that nothing nor no one can stop Darth Maul. This story showed him to be a unstoppable cannon."
5 / 5
