This novel couldn’t have come together without the help of many people.
I’d like to thank my editors Shelly Shapiro and Sue Rostoni for giving me this chance and for sticking with me through all my rewrites and revisions. I shudder to think what I would have ended up with had it not been for their valuable comments and ideas.
Anyone who has read the Jedi vs. Sith series will see the creative debt I owe to Dark Horse Comics, but I’d also like to point out the contributions of my friends and coworkers at BioWare. Much of the groundwork and background material for this novel evolved out of our research and work together on KOTOR, especially Dave Gaider, Luke Kristjanson, Peter Thomas, and James Ohlen.
