Excellent book, really feels like a true Star Wars story, legend or not. Ferus thinks he can play both sides of the field and still do good, but when dealing with the Empire that is nearly impossible to do. He is reunited with Trever, but their friendship faces some tough challenges. An excellent series, not just for 'young adult' readers.

Ferus stayed on Samaria to help with the resistance. Palpatine wants Ferus to flush them out with the promise of amnesty. He also wants Ferus to refer only to him - not Vader. This makes Vader not happy.

Bog tries to turn the Samarians away from establishing an agreement with their neighboring planet, Rosh. Palps wants to control the trade and stirs up mistrust that was starting to heal.

Trever, Solace, Oryon, and Clive go back to the secret base where things aren't doing so well. After helping g

These books are just getting better and better. It is intense and exciting throughout the whole book. Right now Ferus is working for The Empire on the planet Sath. As he is there he is trying to look for the Sath Rebellion so that he can help. He does find them and helps them but there is a big problem, the Empire is trying to elect an Emperial prime minister so that the planet will be under there control. Unfortunatly, they succeed in their evil plot and one of the Empire's officers became prim ...more

Having Olin still doing the Emperor's dirty work is a story that has quickly lost steam. As anticipated, Watson is setting up an inevitable confrontation that will occur between Ferus and Vader. And this book is most definitely a "set-up" book. It's not awful, it's just not really going anywhere, not at the same rate as some of the earlier books of the series. But, if Watson has proven anything before, it's that she isn't afraid to shake things up when things start to become sticks in the mud. H ...more

Another great action-packed tale from Watson. Ferus Olin is playing a double game, being assigned by the Emperor to infiltrate a rebel group on Samaria, and seeking to find out how he can use the same rebels to further his own aim of revenge on the Empire. Darth Vader, unhappy with having to share the Emperor’s favor with Ferus, is constantly looking for ways to undermine Ferus. Also, Ferus still has no idea that Vader is Anakin Skywalker, his old rival when both were still Jedi.

Feris is still working for the Emperor, and now he has been asked to contact the resistance to offer them peace. Darth Vader is not happy about this new relationship. The character parts are more memorable than the storyline in this book, quite unusual for this author. It makes Feris question who he is and what should he compromise to help the resistance. A good read.

Keeps getting better

Ferus gets deeper and deeper and we see the well oiled machine that is the Empire. Good story. And Ferus is getting deeper in with his enemy!
