Order 66 has ail but exterminated the Jedi. The few remaining have been driven into exile or hiding. But not Jax Pavan, who's been steadily striking blows against the Empire as a lone guerrilla fighter and a valued partner of Whiplash, a secret Coruscant-based resistance group. Now he's transporting a valued Whiplash leader, targeted for assassination, from Coruscant to safety on a distant world. It's a risky move under any circumstances, but Jax and his trusted crew are prepared to pit their combat skills and their vessel's firepower against all Imperial threats — except the one Jax fears most: Darth Vader. And Jax knows that Vader will stop at nothing until the last Jedi has fallen.
