This book collects together the following comic stories:
When an argument between ex-Padawan Zayne Carrick
and the mysterious Jarael leaves her questioning her
place in his life, the appearance of the Jedi Malak
threatens to make up her mind for good. Yet Malak's
not the only one with an interest in Jarael. Just
how far the Mandalorian Rohlan is willing to go to
stay by her side has never been revealed -- until
Former Padawan Zayne Carrick's new life takes a turn
for the worse as a con gone wrong puts his friends
in a deadly predicament! Fleecing the corrupt
financial exchange on Metellos 3 seemed like a
victimless crime to Zayne's friends Jarael and
Rohlan -- until they became the victims! Now
prisoners of a galactic criminal syndicate, Jarael
and Rohlan must find a way to survive long enough
for Zayne and his conniving cohort Gryph to rescue
When Zayne and crew infiltrate a comet mine, his
partner Gryph believes it's another clever con to
capture some quick cash. Little does Gryph know,
Zayne and Jarael have other intentions: like
rescuing the miners enslaved by this ruthless mining
operation. Of course, the noble intentions of the
team will all be for naught if their plot is
discovered. Swimming through stardust is no place to
be when enemy ships open fire!
The latest masquerade of the Hot Prospect and
its crew has been discovered!
Up against the Crucible, a massive
slave-trading organization, Zayne Carrick is having
another streak of unfortunate luck. Zayne and Jarael
entered a comet-mining facility with the intention
of freeing its slaves and taking a knife to the
miners' profits, but when the Crucible is
tipped off that imposters are nudging in on their
territory, a death-defying space battle ensues!
Despite a disastrous first encounter with the Crucible,
Zayne Carrick is still determined to end the
brutality they promote in their business. But this
time, he plans to break them from the inside out!
Having set himself up to be captured by the slavers,
when this former Padawan arrives at the Crucible's
training facility, it will be all he can do to
survive, let alone focus on learning about their
organization. His connection to the Force will give
him an unexpected insight: one that he doesn't
necessarily want. And when a past nemesis of his
friend Jarael appears, Zayne begins to worry that
entering the Crucible may be the biggest
mistake of his life!
A captive of the Crucible slaver
organization, Zayne Carrick is finding there is much
more to his friend Jarael's past than she revealed.
Specifically, a Crucible trainer called
Chantique is looking to settle a score, and she
believes that Zayne could be key in that objective.
Her plan will have him desperately attempting to
resolve the psychic attack that she, the Crucible,
and fellow slaves have waged in his mind -- all
while he fights for his life!
This story occurs approximately 3962 years before the
Battle of Yavin.
