I have to admit I was thinking whether to buy this book or not for quite some time now - taking into account all the harsh critics it got.

Finally I decided to go with it and believe me - it was worth it. Story starts where the previous story arc finished. After Karnor Jax was killed in duel with Kir Kanos, Empire was left leaderless - or better yet they have a ruling Council buy they bicker and are generally uncapable of coming to any common ground.

Suddenly mysterious murders start to take place and one by one leaders of the Council are getting killed. Of course main suspect is again Kanos (after he publicly declared Council as traitors to the Emperors cause). But thats not everything - we have Black Sun criminals working on taking control of Imperial council [and to achieve that they work with the Hutt crime syndicate]. And of course there we have a mysterious alien Nom Anor (of the later Yuuzhang Vong fame) also plotting around Imperial Council....

Lots of twists and turns but nevertheless interesting story. Unfortunately it feels like it was left to hung unfinished - hopefully third part will get finished sometime in the future.

Art is so-so, great at times and not so great at other, but generally acceptable.
