Publisher's Summary

BioWare and LucasArts—creators of the hugely popular Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game—have combined their storytelling talents and cutting-edge technology for an innovative new massively multiplayer online role-playing game that allows players to create their own personal Star Wars adventure 3,500 years before the rise of Darth Vader.

Now, number-one New York Times best-selling author Sean Williams brings the world of the game to life in his latest novel, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance.

Tassaa Bareesh, a matriarch in the Hutt crime cartel, is holding an auction that’s drawing attention from across the galaxy. Representatives of both the Republic and the Sith Empire are present, along with a Jedi Padawan sent to investigate, a disenfranchised trooper drummed out of the Republic’s elite Blackstar Squad, and a mysterious Mandalorian with a private agenda. But the Republic’s envoy is not what he seems, the Empire’s delegate is a ruthless Sith apprentice, the Jedi Padawan is determined to do the right thing and terrified that he can’t, the trooper hopes to redeem her reputation, and the Mandalorian is somehow managing to keep one step ahead of everyone.

None of these guests—invited or uninvited—have any intention of participating in the auction. Instead they plan to steal the prize, which is locked inside an impregnable vault: two burned chunks of an exploded star cruiser, one of which may hold the key to the wealth of an entire world.

But the truth about the treasure is dangerous and deadly. And in the end, Sith and Jedi, Republic and Empire, must do something they’ve never done before, something that all the agents of good and evil could never make them do: join together to stop a powerful threat that could destroy the galaxy.

What the Critics Say

"This novel is tied in to the Star Wars universe at a stage in its history that is still being explored in print fiction, and it is also the prequel to what promises to be the largest, most ambitious electronic role-playing game yet to be spun off of that universe. With so much riding on its shoulders, the book demands an unusual gift for cracking-good space opera, and that Williams possesses in full measure." (Booklist)

    "Arduous."

    It takes a long time for the story to peak interest and even longer to like and care about the characters. Some pretty cool moments, but not enough to glue me. Wait for a sale...

    "Great"

    I am a huge fan of the star wars universe and specifically the old republic era, this book is a really good story that fits in with what happened in that time with out disrupting any of the lore. I had a great time listening to this book and Mark Thompson did a great job reading it.

    "Bio Organics!"

    Loved the whole body without a mind thing! Watch out for the red stuff within the hex's! Good read, not much force stuff more trooper and commander stuff. Eldon ax is baller and shigar comes off like a wimp! At the end of it, you're like um how did we get here!?!?! Another great Star Wars book!!

    "near complete failure"

    the narrator suffered through the entire experience apart from a few parts where the Sith and Mandalorian were involved, either he was given bad direction or the writing was just that bad. the occasional Irish or Middle Eastern accent felt extremely out of place and made me wince every time I heard it. the story was pathetic, I kept waiting for something truly interesting to happen and apart from the very middle of the book there was a fight scene that was written quite well but never the less could not warrant further enjoyment in a story bounces back and forth so much that it was hard to keep the story straight. I just can't believe I wasted 15 hours listening to this
