Since the revelation that Cade is the last Skywalker everyone seems to be after him.
Cade and his crew try to lay low with his Uncle, but it becomes clear that Darth Krayt will never stop chasing him. Cade comes up with a new plan, assassinate Krayt in order to be free again. Cade's Uncle reveals something that may help, the Jedi have a hidden temple and the old man formerly known as Jedi Master Nat Skywalker knows the way.

I really like the direction the story is moving in. Cade despite his class

Great continuation of the story. There are lots of different characters in this volume and several returning one's plus a plot which mixes personal and political, old and new, Sith and Jedi in an entertaining concoction which keeps up the space opera fun. Really enjoying this series.

Cade Skywalker has escaped from the Sith on Corscant and owes a number of favors. While he would love to settle back into his old normalcy as a smuggler with his friends Deliah and Sy by his side, it is soon clear that he is going to have to get out of the spotlight so the Sith won't be able to get their hands on him again. He decides to visit an old friend, his uncle Bactah.

Bactah has settled down with his wife Droo and their "kits" on a backwater world. It turns out that Bactah is actually Cad

A nice advancement for a series set 125 years after the Return of Jedi. Unfortunately, the Sith are ascendant in this timeline, running a ruthless Empire and fighting what remains of the former Imperial powerbase as well as a few scattered Jedi.

In previous volumes the Sith sought and imprisoned a descendant of Luke Skywalker, Cade. Cade grew up in the Jedi temple but nearly died in space in the battle that marked its fall; he was picked up by pirates and became a rogue and criminal, with a dece

A third (and hidden) base for the Jedi? They're pulling more and more reference material from the original story lines... It's kind of good to know that the Jedi aren't as completely decimated as the Sith think and that they're actually making plans to enter into the expanding political conflict at the urging of Cade Skywalker. He may not follow along the Jedi's neat and controlled path, but he may be the only one who is capable of thinking outside of their rather closed mind-set and being able ...more

I had trouble getting into the first arc. I think I am getting tired of how sleazy Cade and his crew are. The introduction of another (view spoiler) was interesting.

The second arc, The Hidden Temple, was much better. I enjoyed the reintroduction to some old and ancient characters, the exploration of Jariah Syn's demons, and unlikely alliances.

This volume returns to Cade Skywalker's story. Lots of plot movement, but not much action. Cade discovers allies old and new, and tries to gather allies to his plan. There are some revelations, like Syn's issue with the Jedi, but overall the plot-heaviness slows the pace from the previous volume. Still good, just not quite as good.

I'm glad the story went back to Cade, and just in time! Some BIG decisions are made in this issue, and some bigger issues are confronted in this arc, showing Cade suffer more with the dark side closing in on him. It builds the intensity, and gets you pumped for the big plan Cade's gonna go off to complete...

Cade Skywalker et ses compagnons vont chez l'oncle de Cade et découvrent qu'il existe un temple secret où sont réunis quelques survivants de la purge faite par les Sith. ILs sont suivi par les Imperial Knights qui veulent aux aussi découvrir ce temple secret. On découvre quelques secrets du passé dans ce tome. On apprend pourquoi Syn déteste tant les Jedi et on en apprend encore un peu sur le passé de la famille Skywalker.

Ce n'est pas le meilleur tome de la série. Le rythme est un peu plus lent

This volume feels like the in-between or middle part of a series which is fine but means it isn't quite as good or exciting as previous trade paperbacks. There are interesting character and plot developments (that I won't give away!), but ultimately there isn't a lot of action in the sense of things moving forward until the very end. With that said, the direction the story ultimately is moving towards is very interesting and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next.

4.5 maybe? Not for the faint hearted, we here see the consequences of going against the Sith. But to balance this darkness, Cade reconnects with some family and the Jedi Council and an old friend.

FYI the next part of the story, Volume 6, is actually the second part of Star Wars Vector Volume 2. Vector is a crossover story from 4 different Star Wars comic series. Don't skip this, what happens in Vector is a vital part of the Legacy story, its not fluff.

Seeking sanctuary from Darth Krayt and his Sith order Cade Skywalker goes to his uncle (fathers brother) who is living incognito with his family on a remote world of Iego.

But as it is always case with Cade trouble soon finds him and he sees only one way out of it - he has to kill Krayt before Krayt finds him.

Note: Events here are prelude to the events in Vector (Legacy era story parts)

Great story and very good art.

I think this was my favorite of this series so far. I enjoyed all the subplots and how the main plot progressed. It was nice to see that Cade still had some family besides the mother he never knew and that doesn't want to be known. It was also cool to see the hidden jedi temple. All in all, definitely one of the best of the Legacy series so far.

Cade is on the run again, after attacking the Sith temple. All he wants to do is hide. There's some nice moments where he visits relatives, though Cade is starting to get annoying now. The hidden temple is a good idea, but isn't really explored much. A good read.

Why the 5 Star reviews for this series I hear you asking.

Well, that's easy. Deliah Blue

Ok, maybe that's not it.

A solid continuation of Cade's story, though one that's a bit decompressed.
