NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Set before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, this new novel is a thrilling follow-up to Star Wars: Darth Plagueis.

 
It's kill or be killed in the space penitentiary that houses the galaxy’s worst criminals, where convicts face off in gladiatorial combat while an underworld gambling empire reaps the profits of the illicit blood sport. But the newest contender in this savage arena, as demonic to behold as he is deadly to challenge, is fighting for more than just survival. His do-or-die mission, for the dark masters he serves, is to capture the ultimate weapon: an object that will enable the Sith to conquer the galaxy.
 
Sith lords Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious are determined to possess the prize. And one of the power-hungry duo has his own treacherous plans for it. But first, their fearsome apprentice must take on a bloodthirsty prison warden, a cannibal gang, cutthroat crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and an unspeakable alien horror. No one else could brave such a gauntlet of death and live. But no one else is the dreaded dark-side disciple known as Darth Maul.

Praise for Lockdown
 
“Schreiber . . . was a great choice for this novel, imbuing the story with a dark, foreboding tone while never quite stepping into the horror territories that Death Troopers and Red Harvest took us.”Jedi News
 
“Fans of the Dark Side should rejoice. Lockdown delivers a can’t-put-this-down tale of scum and villainy.”Club Jade
 
“[Lockdown is] an action packed ride that spins one entertaining chapter after another. The multiple layers of story keeps readers guessing what will happen next and just who will live and who will die. . . . It certainly adds to the character of Darth Maul while matching [Darth] Plagueis’s complexity with sheer fun. . . . Five out of five metal bikinis.”Roqoo Depot
 
“Somehow, Schreiber is able to skate the line between hard-hitting prison story and the adventure and excitement I love from Star Wars in a way that doesn’t betray either genre. It’s really quite masterful.”Big Shiny Robot
 
Lockdown is an exciting, engaging read. . . . It actually lines up beautifully for a sequel, which I, for one, would love to read.”Coffee with Kenobi
 
“The novel makes The Clone Wars better. It also illuminates The Phantom Menace. I think it’s the hallmark of the best tie-in fiction to resonate throughout other parts of the expanded universe in that way.”Knights’ Archive
 
“By the fiftieth page, I was hooked. . . . Lockdown is a wonderful ‘antihero’ novel, where it’s just fine to root for the villain, because there are even worse things out there. This book was so fun and entertaining. I’ll have to keep an eye out for more Star Wars books from Schreiber.”Seattle Geekly

    Between fair and good

    Since I have read every star wars novel written in the timeline I found this disapointing . The other Maul books are better an have more character in them. The character in this does not fit as well. However Maul question his force relationship is good. While fairly well written, attempts to make the story convoluted, just make somewhat confusing. The character who is the most well written is the warden.

    Since its clear that several people haven't read this book and ask how is he still alive and will he be in episode VII and at the risk of them being a troll I have to clear it up for people that might get turned away. This book takes place before Episode I. Typical Schreiber book. Lots of action and great detail on sequences. Won't spoil much. Great fun read in the Star Wars universe.

    Provides great background into the development of MAUL.

    Very fast moving book with short chapters. Lots of twists and turns that keep you guessing as to what will happen next.

    What a disappointment

    Flat characters, disjointed plot lines, hard to follow story. It seems as if the author couldn't decide if they wanted to write a mystery, an adventure, or a story filled with manipulation so they tried them all resulting in a disappointing addition to the Star Wars Universe.

    A good story but a little slow for a Star Wars story. One of the things I liked about this novel was that it explored the cool and calculating side of Darth Maul. It showed that he was more than the blunt instrument of his master
