UPDATE! Full Synopsis for the “Dark Disciple” Novel Revealed. Based on Eight Unused Scripts.

dark-discipleDark Disciple is an upcoming novel starring Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos. It is written by Christie Golden and will be released on July 7, 2015. The novel is part of the new Star Wars Canon and is based on scripts that were written for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. Check out the full synopsis after the jump.



From RandomHouse (via JediBibliothek):


The only way to bring down the dark side’s most dangerous warrior may be for Jedi and Sith to join forces.

In the war for control of the galaxy between the armies of the dark side and the Republic, former Jedi Master turned ruthless Sith Lord Count Dooku has grown ever more brutal in his tactics. Despite the powers of the Jedi and the military prowess of their clone army, the sheer number of fatalities is taking a terrible toll. And when Dooku orders the massacre of a flotilla of helpless refugees, the Jedi Council feels it has no choice but to take drastic action: targeting the man responsible for so many war atrocities, Count Dooku himself.




But the ever-elusive Dooku is dangerous prey for even the most skilled hunter. So the Council makes the bold decision to bring both sides of the Force’s power to bear—pairing brash Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos with infamous one-time Sith acolyte Asajj Ventress. Though Jedi distrust for the cunning killer who once served at Dooku’s side still runs deep, Ventress’s hatred for her former master runs deeper. She’s more than willing to lend her copious talents as a bounty hunter—and assassin—to Vos’s quest.

Together, Ventress and Vos are the best hope for eliminating Dooku—as long as the emerging feelings between them don’t compromise their mission. But Ventress is determined to have her retribution and at last let go of her dark Sith past. Balancing the complicated emotions she feels for Vos with the fury of her warrior’s spirit, she resolves to claim victory on all fronts—a vow that will be mercilessly tested by her deadly enemy . . . and her own doubt.







A small – but important – bit of news on this book hit the web yesterday. While many expected this book to be based on four scripts (as was the case with the Darth Maul: Son Of Dathomir comic series), author Christie Golden revealed an important point of interest on Twitter about the number of scripts she used.





That’s right – Dark Disciple covers twice as much material as people initially presumed. Considering that the average story arc in The Clone Wars was four episodes long, that suggests that this novel will cover two un-animated story arcs. That’s quite a step up for the character of Quinlan Vos, who had previously appeared in one episode of the show in a major role. Could it be possible that these two story arcs are actually from different seasons, dealing with the interactions between him and Asajj Ventress? It’s certainly neat food for thought.
