Kir Kanos is the last surviving member of the elite Crimson Guard! He's on the run and the Empire will stop at nothing to destroy him!
The last member of the Crimson Guard, Kir Kanos, has found some possible allies with a band of Rebels, but can they trust a former servant of the evil Emperor? Mirith Sinn's band of Rebels is under siege by the Empire as their hideout is discovered! But who should come to their rescue but Kir Kanos, the last member of the Crimson Guard?! Is he on their side or is there another reason he is fighting with them?
The Rebels recover from last issue's Imperial attack and are forced to abandon their secret base, but not before they deal with Tem Merkon, the traitor in their midst! And if they thought an attack by the Empire was bad, wait till they find out that the evil Carnor Jax and his elite stormtroopers have arrived and he's after the Rebel leader, Mirith Sinn! Will she betray the location of Kir Kanos? And where is he, anyway?
The all-new Rogue Squadron debuts in action in this battle-filled chapter! It's all coming to a head: the Rebels, now discovered by the Empire, are fighting for their lives in space, while on the planet Phaeda, Carnor Jax and his personal guard of stormtroopers search for Kir Kanos! The final battle of the last of the Royal Guards is about to begin.
The final battle: the last of the Royal Guards, Kir Kanos versus Carnor Jax and only one walks away!
