By now the galaxy has learned the terrible truth: Sith Lord Darth Maul still lives. Worse, he has joined forces with his brother Savage Opress!
The Jedi are searching for them and, after Maul and Opress cut a murderous swath through the Outer Rim, so is an army of mercenaries hired by a wealthy mine owner.
Darth Maul has a price on his head, and for him there is only one way to deal with such a problem: go directly to the source!
Itís a perfect storm of mayhem as brothers Darth Maul and Savage Opress collide with an army of mercenaries, augmented by a team of visiting Jedi!
The only thing that can make Darth Maul angrier than he is about the price on his head is having his brother captured by the man who put it there. If you thought two Sith were dangerous, wait until you see Darth Maul on his own!
While an injured Darth Maul recuperates from his recent battle with a team of Jedi, he plots his revengeóand the rescue of his brother Savage Opress (now in Jedi custody). But it isnít simply the Jedi that Maul must face; itís a powerful mining magnate with forces of his own!
Luckily for Maul, the mine owner has made a career out of exploiting the local work force, and the natives are revolting!
As more Jedi, Obi-Wan included, and clone trooper reinforcements arrive to take Savage Opress and the crooked mine owner into custody, Darth Maul convinces the locals that the Jedi are in league with the mine owner who exploited them.
If the Jedi fight the natives, theyíll be killing innocents. If they donít, theyíll be killed themselves! Itís the perfect distraction for Maul to find and release his brother!

This story occurs approximately 20 years before the Battle of Yavin: between The Clone Wars Season 4 and Season 5.

Review by J. L. Polacek, USA, 2012:
"Darth Maul: Death Sentence was a great story. I like how Darth Maul was seen at first as hero a "demon of light", how he was seen as a hero to the people till the end. I also like how they had a Trandoshan as a Jedi. We have not seen many of those except as hunter and bounty hunters."
