Ki-Adi-Mundi, Jedi Knight of the planet Cerea, has been charged with murder, and only the high technology of the Republic can exonerate him.

Sinister forces are gathering around Cerea, but what could they possibly want with a remote, low-tech farm world?

Sylvn and the fugitives have taken flight from Cerea, but their starship's cargo hold is fit to burst with a load of unstoppable alien beasts.

The criminal organization Black Sun is feared across the galaxy. There is very little that their power and corruption do not influence.

Gaining entrance to Black Sun, Maul works his way to the inner sanctum of the organization -- and that's when the destruction begins!

Ki-Adi-Mundi is a Jedi Knight of formidable strength and influence. On his homeworld of Cerea, most of the planet's citizens are happy to continue their low-tech lives of simplicity, isolated from the Republic, but a growing voice calls for the advanced technologies brought by offworlders. When Ki becomes a strong voice of opposition for such development, he is falsely charged with murder and is swiftly drawn into a web of conspiracy and intrigue that could rock the galaxy to its foundations--a web that may have the vile crime lord Jabba the Hutt and the powerful Trade Federation at its center, setting the stage for Episode I --The Phantom Menace!
