Since evil Emperor Palpatine destroyed the Jedi Knights and seized power, his reign has been absolute. He controls the Senate. He controls the Imperial Army. He controls the galaxy. He is a Sith.
And now, for mysterious reasons, he wants to control Ferus Olin, ex-Padawan.
Ferus does not want to aid the Empire in any way. But when the Emperor threatens the lives of the people closest to him, Ferus doesn't have a choice. He agrees to go on a secret mission for Palpatine, to become a double-agent and somehow keep his allegiance to the fallen Jedi Order.
Can he succeed? Or are the Emperor and his henchman Darth Vader too powerful to overcome?

This story occurs between approximately six to seven months after the events of Revenge of the Sith (18 and a half years before the Battle of Yavin).

Review by Bones, UK, 2012:

"After Watson wrapped up several things in the previous Last of the Jedi books, I was wondering where she'd take the series next. A Tangled Web begins what is surely to be a complex and intriguing plotline involving Sith, Force-sensitives and more characters from previous series. Seeing Bog Divinian and Sano Sauro again raises my hopes that at some point in this series they will get their respective comeuppances. The way that these characters have been woven into the storyline is skilfully done, so that the plot twist that you think you can see coming turns out to be a red herring. The actual plot twist is better.
"The core group of characters that Watson has built up is relatively large for such short books, and a few of them would benefit from a little more development, but generally they are all rather appealing. The most disappointing thing about the book was actually the cover. Palpatine/Darth Sidious unleashes a barrage of Force lightning against an unknown victim, yet within the text nothing even approximating this occurs. Covers shouldn't deceive.
"The biggest selling point here is the plot. To begin with, the story seems banal, but as events unfold, it seems that there are plots within plots - exactly how you would expect Sith and their associates to operate. Another enjoyable read in the series."

Rating: 3 / 5
