For the infamous, power-hungry Sith,
beholden to the dark side,
the time has come to rise again...

After years of waiting in the shadows, Darth Sidious is taking the first step in his master plan to bring the Republic to its knees. Key to his scheme are the Neimoidians of the Trade Federation. Then one of his Neimoidian contacts disappears, and Sidious does not need his Force-honed instincts to suspect betrayal. He orders his apprentice, Darth Maul, to hunt the traitor down.
But he is too late. The secret has already passed into the hands of information broker Lorn Pavan, which places him right on the top of Darth Maul's hit list. Then, in the labyrinthine alleyways and sewers of Coruscant, capital city of the Republic, Lorn crosses paths with Darsha Assant, a Jedi Padawan on a mission to earn her Knighthood. Now the future of the Republic depends on Darsha and Lorn. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man, stranger to the powerful ways of the Force, hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy?

The paperback version also includes a copy of the e-book Darth Maul: Saboteur.

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

Review by Lukasz Herman, Poland, 2013:
"Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter is a very entertaining book with a fantastic main character. Itís well written and the pace of the action is extremely high so one wonít be bored while reading. I canít call this book perfect, because Darsha and Lorn were too typical in my opinion, but despite that I liked it very much."
4.3 / 5

Review by Colton Jones, USA, 2010:
"This book got more exciting when it gets to the end of the book when Darsha Avant and Lorn Pavan die but I wasn't sure what happened to the droid I-Five."
3.7 / 5
