Synopsis: Aayla Secura crashes on Kiffex and, blinded by her anger, she releases the ancient evil, Fallen Jedi Volfe Karrko. Meanwhile, Sheyf Tinte, ruler of Kiffu, sends Quinlan Vos, a Jedi with amnesia and Master to Aayla, to Kiffex. There he faces his ultimate fears: the vampiric Anzati and the Fallen Jedi. Luckily, he gets help fromhis former Master Tholme and ehh...some...ehhh...."help" from smuggler Vilmarh. This si a story of fear, Darkness and more.

Review: It was John Ostrander's goal to create a Star Wars horror story. With the help of the wonderful art of Jan Duursema it worked. Not that the comis is all that scary, but it has a dark thingy that makes a horror movie a horror. Is it the evil Volfe or the feral Anzati? I don't know.

What I do know is that the story Ostrander wrote fits perfectly into Twilight and continues the sad story of the amnesia of Quinlan Vos, the Jedi that walks closely by the Dark Side. He's a new anti-hero and his friends like Vilmarh make him even a bigger antihero and much more fun. Add to that the wonderful art of Jan Duursema and the even more dark coverart of Jon Foster and you got yourself a true winner.
