Within the heart of the Republic’s favorite son, a growing firestorm is gathering strength. Anakin Skywalker’s Jedi idealism has been tarnished by the corrosive effects of the prolonged conflict. The young Knight has seen death and suffered much in the long war. His duel with the would-be Sith assassin Asajj Ventress, and the dismemberment inflicted upon him by Count Dooku, have left him scarred, but his inner wounds are more extensive still. Misgivings and doubt, fueled by fear of loss and by pride, gnaw at Anakin. His secret love and for Senator Amidala and the child she carries fosters a growing resentment of the stark law of the Order, which forbids attachment. The fear of losing those he loves, a seed planted with the death of his mother and nourished by prophetic nightmares, now drives Anakin’s actions. And ever in his ear, the soft deceptions of the Supreme Chancellor nourishes the young man’s vanity, insidiously wilting his Jedi humility, burning a wedge between him and his dearest friend and mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Is he not the Chosen One, the greatest Jedi to have ever lived? Why then, should he be bound by rules designed to limit his power?

As the war enters its final, dramatic days, the fiery turmoil within Anakin Skywalker burns stronger than ever. Tortured by his dreams of Padmè’s death, Anakin makes the ultimate choice and submits to Palpatine’s insidious overtures, accepting the Chancellor’s dominion in exchange for the dark side’s power- the power to control his destiny and that of those around him- the power to end the war and remake the galaxy under his will.

The Jedi, those who have sought to limit and control him, now suffer the scorching of Anakin’s fiery wrath. No longer a Jedi Knight, but a vengeful Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader leads an army into the Jedi Temple on a mission of murder and destruction, and none- not the brave, nor the mighty, nor the innocent- can withstand his coming. Friendship and loyalty will burn to stoke the fires of rage as the Sith take their revenge and the Empire is born.
