Star Wars: Maul: Lockdown is an upcoming novel by Joe Schreiber featuring Darth Maul. Set to be released on January 21, 2014, the novel takes place before the events in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and will follow Maul on a mission on which he must infiltrate a hidden prison. It was first unveiled on the website io9.com on January 24, 2013.
From the mind of Joe Schreiber, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Death Troopers, comes the delirious follow-up to last year's Darth Plagueis. In a tale of retribution and survival set before the events of The Phantom Menace, Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious dispatch Sith apprentice Darth Maul on a secret mission to infiltrate a criminal empire operating from inside Cog Hive Seven-a hidden prison teeming with the galaxy's most savage criminals. There, he must contend against the scummiest and most villainous in gladiatorial death matches while carrying out his masters' clandestine commands. Failure is not an option; success will ignite the revenge of the Sith against the Jedi Order.
