Brutal and heart-wrenching, Charles Soule's final installment in the emergent Vader's saga does not disappoint. It is at once the satisfying end of an arc and a piercing look at Anakin that integrates old canon and new.

In this volume I continually cringed at the freakin' messed up relationship between Palpatine and Vader. Fortress Vader continues to establish Vader's loyalty to yet mistrust of his Master.

As reflected in this volume's title, Vader requests of his Master the planet Mustafar for his very own. Yet his palace ends up designed not by Imperial architects but by the spirit of a long dead Sith.

Vader journeys into the depths not only of the dark side of the Force, but of his own soul, as he wonders whether there might still be something else to live for, other than the will of Palpatine.
