This story occurs approximately 19 years before Episode IV: A New Hope:

But years before, at the height of The Clone Wars, he was known as Caleb Dume, Jedi Padawan under the instruction of Jedi Master Depa Billaba. Neither master nor apprentice ever suspected that the Clone Troopers they commanded would turn on them upon the issuing of Order 66—the order to execute all Jedi. How did Caleb Dume survive? How did he learn to survive on his own? And how did he become the man we know as Kanan Jarrus?

[Dark Disciple] [] Dark Disciple enters best sellers lists

Christie Golden's latest Star Wars novel, Dark Disciple, has entered the US best sellers lists: #17 on The New York Times Hardcover Fiction Best Sellers[External site - opens in a new window/tab]; #16 on Publishers Weekly Hardcover Fiction Bestsellers[External site - opens in a new window/tab]; and #69 on USA Today Best-Selling Books[External site - opens in a new window/tab].

It should be noted that the apparent disparity in position numbers between USA Today and The New York Times and Publishers Weekly's lists is because USA Today's list measures sales across all formats: hardcover, paperback, electronic; while both NYTimes and Publishers Weekly's list are for hardcover sales only.
