Couverture et synopsis de Jedi Twilight

15 décembre 2007

La trilogie de Michael Reaves, Coruscant Nights, annoncée initialement pour 2006 avant d'être repoussée de deux ans, approche. Le mois dernier, nous avions eu droit au synopsis présent sur la quatrième de couverture du roman.
Aujourd'hui, il s'agit de la couverture définitive du bouquin :


Synopsis :
With the dark ascension of the Empire, and the Jedi Knights virtually wiped out, one Jedi who escaped the massacre is slated for a date with destiny--and a confrontation with Darth Vader.

Jax Pavan is one of the few Jedi Knights who miraculously survived the slaughter that followed Palpatine's ruthless Order 66. Now, deep in Coruscant's Blackpit Slums, Jax ekes out a living as a private investigator, trying to help people in need while concealing his Jedi identity and staying one step ahead of the killers out for Jedi blood. Others search for the elusive Jax too. Hard-boiled reporter Den Dhur and his buddy, the highly unorthodox droid I-5YQ, have shocking news to bring Jax--about the father he never knew.

But when Jax learns that his old Jedi Master has been killed, leaving behind the request that Jax finish a mission critical to the resistance, Jax has no choice but to emerge from hiding--and risk detection by Darth Vader to fulfill his Master's dying wish.
