Book Summary: The most fearsome villain of all time returns with an all-new series! When Anakin Skywalker fell, both to the pull of the dark side and to the blade of Obi-Wan Kenobi, he rose back up, more machine than man. Having lost everything that was once dear to him, the former chosen one must take his first steps into a darker world…as Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith!
Book Review: Real Rating: 4.5

This book follows Anakin Skywalker shortly after rising from his mortal ashes to become Palpatine's apprentice, Darth Vader. Palpatine has told Vader that he is the cause of Padme's death, sending Vader into a rage and causing everything around him to be destroyed. This angers Palpatine because he is thrown back by Vader's "force" fury and punishes him.

Once Palpatine sees that his punishment has worked, he takes Vader to show him that the Jedi are finished and the lightsabers are being destroyed. Vader seems to be a bit upset by this. He had some hope to have one of the sabers even Yoda's but Palpatine has other ideas. He takes Vader on a trip and instructs him to seek out a Jedi and take their kyber crystal so that it may be corrupted to fit Vader's needs as part of his new lightsaber.

I don't want to go further because it would spoil the ending but I will say I was impressed with this story. This takes us to an early part of Vader's early beginnings and gives us a glimpse of the terror he will eventually unleash upon the galactic empire and anyone who opposes Palpatine's rule.

This one really had no action. It only showed you the moments from his rebirth to the searching of a new kyber crystal for his lightsaber. This issue was only setting up the beginning and I quite looking forward to seeing exactly how this story pans out and expands Vader's canonical history within the Star Wars universe.

Also I enjoyed the little side story. The humor is a bit dark but well worth the read.
