Revenge of the Sith was how Anakin fell, and Vader was born. This is the story of how Vader rose. In the beginning Vader is appalled and exasperated by his Life Support Suit and Prosthetic limbs. Not seeing his existence as living. Unaccustomed to the suit Vader was slow, clumsy, and unsure of himself. He was consumed by claustrophobia and Isolation. Vader changes by degrees throughout the book, as he terrorizes civilians while pursuing and fighting Jedi survivors. He goes from seeing the suit as a prison, to a macobre costume, to mastering his prosthetics, and finally little more than a set of cloths. He goes from confusion, self-doubt, and blaming others for his fate - to feeling invincible, having the the Dark Side surging through him. By the end of this book, Vader sees the Jedi survivors as incidental. The only reason he lived was to topple Sidious from the thrown. Killing his master. and taking his place, was all Vader had left.
