About this item
BioWare and LucasArtscreators of the hugely popular Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video gamehave combined their storytelling talents and cutting-edge technology for an innovative new massively multiplayer online role-playing game that allows players to create their own personal Star Wars adventure 3, 500 years before the rise of Darth Vader. Now #1 New York Times best selling author Sean Williams brings the world of the game to life in his latest novel, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance.
Tassaa Bareesh, a matriarch in the Hutt crime cartel, is holding an auction thats drawing attention from across the galaxy. Representatives of both the Republic and the Sith Empire are present, along with a Jedi Padawan sent to investigate, a disenfranchised trooper drummed out of the Republics elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian with a private agenda. But the Republics envoy is not what he seems, the Empires delegate is a ruthless Sith apprentice, the Jedi Padawan is determined to do the right thing and terrified that he cant, the trooper hopes to redeem her reputation, and the Mandalorian is somehow managing to keep one step ahead of everyone.
None of these guestsinvited or uninvitedhave any intention of participating in the auction. Instead they plan to steal the prize, which is locked inside an impregnable vault: two burned chunks of an exploded star cruiser, one of which may hold the key to the wealth of an entire world.
But the truth about the treasure is dangerous and deadly. And in the end, Sith and Jedi, Republic and Empire, must do something theyve never done before, something that all the agents of good and evil could never make them do: join together to stop a powerful threat that could destroy the galaxy.
