Cade Skywalker takes up a lightsaber once again—but not for the reason the Jedi had hoped!
In fact, some among the Jedi are becoming suspicious of Cade and his undisciplined power. Haunted by the tragedies of his own life and the actions of his ancestors, Cade’s denial of the past could be laying the seeds for a terrifying future. Amidst the ruins of his childhood, a decision will lead to a discovery, bringing Cade that much closer to his destiny.
Meanwhile, Cade’s old allies Deliah Blue and Jariah Syn face uncertain futures of their own, betrayed and delivered into the hands of a deadly enemy they thought they’d left behind. Whether or not they live to see tomorrow relies on what they know about the last Skywalker heir—and what they’re willing to reveal! STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC #16
