They've kept that under wraps pretty well and its making me curious. Kemp is the author that gets me excited these days since Stover has been absent for awhile, so I guess I'll just brace myself for whatever. But I hope Malgus is involved, with The Old Republic stuff kind of dancing around the game and expecting you to know the plot of the MMO it'd be nice to get more character focus for Darth Thanton or Malgus or Vitiate and such.


I still think its more likely that he follows up on the possible complications raised by the end of Crosscurrent, especially since they've said they're switching to shorter series post-FOTJ.

Since Karpyshyn is doing a TOR book with Malgus's apprentice, I really doubt if Kemp's duology is set in TOR.

I am really hoping it's some kind of follow up to Crosscurrent/Riptide.

I don't think it's going to be a Crosscurrent followup or a TOR book. I think this will be something new.

I want a fusion. A book that's fresh, but still ties into previous eras. Paul S. Kemp has combined strengths of James Luceno and Matthew Stower, so I'm super excited to see how he tackles the SWEU next.

I'm in agreement with you here.

I agree. I think if it was one of those two options, Del Rey would just come out and say it. What's to hide? The fact that they're keeping it secret makes me curious.

Not necessairily. If its set post-FOTJ they may have wanted to keep it quiet, especially if there's any hint in the titles or descriptions about major plot points.

That's what I mean. I don't think it will be a Riptide sequel or a TOR book. I think it could very well be a post-FotJ book.

But a Riptide sequel could still be a post-FOTJ book. The timeline works.

Just finished reading this book. I loved it. It suprised me that the Jedi would betray Aryn. The Jedi were so blinded by what they wanted to believe that they could not see what was really in front of them.

Aryn was well written. I wasn't too suprised by what she did at the end. I was suprised that she did not go further down the 'dark path'.

Anyway, Malgus is so unlike any Sith that has appeared in the novels. I found myself feeling sorry for the guy at times. He is a well written, well rounded character. He does good on one hand, bad on the other. We can see the conflict that's going on within him.

I hope we see more of Malgus and his journey through the darkside.

Just finished this and I loved it. I'd go as far as to say its one of the best SW books I've ever read.

Cool, glad you liked it. What are some of the top Star Wars books you would rank it with?

Okay well ABY I'm up to Children of the Jedi and BBY I'm about to read my first PT era book (Plagueis)

That being said with my limited reading my fave books have been Stackpoles X-Wing novels, Knight Errant, I, Jedi.
