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

From Barnes & Noble

Set a thousand years before Luke Skywalker, this Star Wars standalone showcases the exploits of Kerra Holt, a heroic female Jedi who attempts to take down the Dark Lords almost single-handedly. To survive and achieve her mission, she must forge alliances with unsavory cohorts including a mercenary general and a devious Sith spy. A mass market original with sales punch.

    This is an action packed ride that keeps you guessing from begining to end

    This is one of the best Star Wars Novels I have read in quite a while. The last Star Wars book I read that was this hard to put down was Darth Bane Path of Destruction. John Jackson Miller is a great writer and he is at his best here. This book feels like three books in one and I really enjoyed all the new Sith villains that were introduced in this book, and there is even a huge twist that, I did not see coming late in the book. Kerra Holt is a great new Jedi character and I can't wait to see what John does with her in the future. There is a lot of action in this book, much like last year's Fate of the Jedi Vortex. Knight Errant is great fun and left me begging for more. Any Star Wars fan that is interested in the era set before the movies should not miss this book, it is that good.

    fun ancient history Star Wars tale

    A millennium before Skywalker became a galaxy name, the Sith traveled destructively across the Republic as everyone is considered a slave on a chain. No one except a Sith Lord would dare challenge any of these predatory superego maniacs who share in common the belief they are the dictators of the galaxy and collateral damage of innocent bystanders is desired as a means to control everyone.

    In this brutal Dark Age, one light shines and that is Jedi Knight Errant Kerra Holt, who does not fear using the Force to destroy the Dark Lords. Her quest has made her Sith Lord public enemy number one; number two is each other. However, her battles with Lord Daiman who knows he created the universe in his image with a big bang and his older jealous brother Lord Odion who knows he destroyed the universe in his image with a big crunch suddenly seems minor. In Daiman's capital Darknell, Kerra meets Narsk an Odionite enabler, which leads her to realize an interwoven diabolical family affair with previously unheard of modern technology rather than individual megalomaniac exists. She must find a way to divide and conquer amidst the chaos of combat.

    Based on the Dark Horse comic book, Knight Errant is a fun Star Wars tale occurring even before Lord Bane. The story line is faster than the Force and loaded with action as obsessed Holt assumes everyone is her enemy though she knows she needs allies if she is to end the threat. The heroine is a sort of Paladin (from Have Gun Will Travel), but not for hire. Though none of the cast is developed beyond their prime trait, readers will enjoy Kerra's saber butt kicking escapades in a Republic overwhelmed by incestuous infighting Sith Lords who bring new insanity to the meaning of the Dark Ages.

    Star Wars

    This is the first Star Wars book that I didn't get into. I didn't read the graphic novel first. That might be why I thought it was lackluster and rambling.

    Strong in the force, this book is not!

    I love reading Star Wars book. This has been the first one that I could not wait to be done with. I found the pace to drag for the first 250-300 pages. The ending was predictable. I never found myself attached to any of the characters.

    Miller's Masterpiece

    Star Wars Knight Errant is perhaps one of the most action packed Old Republic novels ever written. The story takes place a thousand years before Luke Skywalker and a generation before Darth Bane, in a galaxy far, far away. Of course the rule of two has not yet been initiated and thus hundreds and hundreds of Sith roam the galaxy unchecked. But there is one lone Jedi, whom this story revolves around, that dares to defy them. Her name is Kerra Holt.

    If your looking for an intriguing tale full of wild adventure, awesome new worlds, crazy plot twists, Sith vs. Jedi and every thing you've come to expect from Star Wars, this is your book.

    MUST READ FOR STAR WARS FANS!

    This is the best book from the old republic series. Opens up the door to a whole new star wars world. I was so happy with this book. It is not about Kerra Holt it focus on a whole era of new sith lords and sith space. A must read.
