Le roman sera écrit par Elaine Cunningham, qui a déjà signé le roman Sombre Voyage de la série NOJ en partie centré sur Jaina Solo.
Quelques mots sur l'histoire :
[spoiler]Once an orphan scavenging on the streets of Coruscant's undercity, he rose to become a Jedi Knight and serve with honor as a fighter pilot for the New Republic. Alongside Jaina Solo, he confronted the forces of Darth Caedus -- the most powerful of the Sith Lords -- in a battle that nearly destroyed him. But his story isn't over. For Zekk, the future holds much more. . . .
Darth Caedus is dead, and the war is ended. Still, the Imperial Remnant remains a very real threat for the Galactic Alliance. And though the Moffs' attempted assassination of Tenel Ka, Queen Mother of the Hapes Consortium, has failed, their machinations have uncovered an ancient secret capable of destroying the queen and her people as surely as the deadliest attack.
As Jag Fel, Imperial Remnant leader and Zekk's longtime rival for Jaina Solo's affections, assumes control of the Moff Council -- stepping right into a nest of explosive intrigue -- Zekk, desperate to contact his Jedi comrades, finds himself at the mercy of a pirate captain with an unknown agenda and allegiance to none but herself. But with or without her, the Knight vows to do whatever it takes to stop the volatile conflict unfolding around him from reaching its fatal endgame.[/spoiler]
