Darth Maul, merciless apprentice of evil and one of the legendary Sith, a twisted order given over to the dark side of the Force ... Darth Maul, champion of the nefarious Sith Lord, Darth Sidious ... Darth Maul, a legend sprung to life from the nightmares of history, about to be unleashed ... in an all-new tale of intrigue and mystery set just before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. After years of waiting in the shadows, Darth Sidious is taking the first step in his master plan to bring the Republic to its knees. He meets secretly with his Neimoidian contacts in the Trade Federation to plan the blockade of the planet Naboo. But one member of the delegation is missing, and Sidious does not need his Force-honed instincts to suspect betrayal. He orders his apprentice, Darth Maul, to hunt the traitor down. On Coruscant, capital city of the Republic, the Neimoidian moves quickly to sell what he knows to the highest bidder. For Lorn Pavan, an information broker, the deal is too good to pass up. He grabs it, unaware that he has now earned a place on Darth Maul's hit list, right behind the Neimoidian defector himself. Meanwhile, a young Jedi padawan by the name of Darsha Assant stands on the verge of ascension to Jedi knighthood. A single mission will be her test. But a greater test awaits her. For in the labyrinthine alleyways and sewers of Coruscant's own dark side, she will cross paths with Lorn, who is fleeing from the Sith stalker, carrying with him crucial information that must reach the Jedi Council at all costs. The future of the Republic depends on Darsha and Lorn. But how can an untried Jedi and an ordinary man, stranger to the powerful ways of the Force, hope to triumph over one of the deadliest killers in the galaxy?

This book ROCKS!
One of the best all out Star Wars books I have read, thus far.

If you are planning on watching Episode I....read this book first. It really adds great detail to what is about to happen in Episode I. There are also great details regarding Jedi that are not mentioned in any of the movies....which, I find very interesting.

This is a must read.
I also recommend the book directly before this one in the timeline....Cloak of Deception. These two books are as good as the movies.

Awesome reading. Fast pace action from the first to the last page.
Do not recommend for bus-ride reading. You will surely miss your stop:-)
5* from me, enjoy.

It directly precedes the movie Star Wars 1: Fantom Menace. Literally. The last page is followed by the first scene in the movie.
