Overview

An original adventure featuring Jedi Kerra Holt—star of the hot new Dark Horse Knight Errant comic series
 
A thousand years before Luke Skywalker, a generation before Darth Bane, in a galaxy far, far away . . .
 

The Republic is in crisis. The Sith roam unchecked, vying with one another to dominate the galaxy. But one lone Jedi, Kerra Holt, is determined to take down the Dark Lords. Her enemies are strange and many: Lord Daiman, who imagines himself the creator of the universe; Lord Odion, who intends to be its destroyer; the curious siblings Quillan and Dromika; the enigmatic Arkadia. So many warring Sith weaving a patchwork of brutality—with only Kerra Holt to defend the innocents caught underfoot.

Sensing a sinister pattern in the chaos, Kerra embarks on a journey that will take her into fierce battles against even fiercer enemies. With one against so many, her only chance of success lies with forging alliances among those who serve her enemies—including a mysterious Sith spy and a clever mercenary general. But will they be her adversaries or her salvation?
 
Includes a special, full-color excerpt from the Dark Horse comic Star Wars: Knight Errant

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
This is the fifth volume of this particular “Star Wars: Knight Errant” series. On the cover page there is a four-paragraph description of what has happened in the previous volumes. Without this description, readers will not understand all that has happened (and thus what is happening). However most readers will not care to read those paragraphs and will instead skip to the illustrated panels of the graphic novel. Graphic novel fans, especially Star Wars fans, will still gladly read this small moment of a story (one can tell that this volume is a part of a larger whole). Mostly the panels are simple divisions of the pages (in one, two, three, or four rectangles); however, there are a few panels (where there is a grander bit of action) that have panels on top of panels or panels that are diagonally arranged across the page. The change in panel illustration does show the importance of specific moments. However, since this is just a small part of a larger story, and the end of the larger story arc, most readers will not notice these subtle action clues. They will instead just be racing through the story to find out how the previous four volumes led to this climax. Reviewer: Joella Peterson; Ages 8 to 14.
