[ The Old Republic: Annihilation ] Official blurb for Annihilation
Last month the official Star Wars: The Old Republic website revealed the cover and short blurb for The Old Republic: Annihilation by Drew Karpyshyn - the upcoming fourth Star Wars: The Old Republic tie-in novel - now its publisher, Del Rey, has updated their online catalogue page[External site - opens in a new window/tab] with a full blurb:

The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lord’s attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiserAscendant Spear, continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.
But Karrid’s ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force—but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal—which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end Ascendant Spear’s reign of terror.
Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teff’ith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrid’s former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they don’t seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.

The Old Republic: Annihilation by Drew Karpyshyn is due for release in hardback in the US and UK on November 13th.
