The Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi — The Fall of the Sith Empire trade paperback is a graphic novel collecting all five issues in the Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi — The Fall of the Sith Empire comic series.
Five thousand years before the birth of Luke
Skywalker, young Gav and Jori Daragon
accidentally set in motion one of the most
devastating wars the galaxy has ever known.
Fleeing trouble in the Koros system, which has
been newly unified by the benevolent Empress
Teta, Gav and Jori race into unexplored
hyperspace, hoping to make their fortune—but
their path lands them right into the heart of the
awesome Sith Empire!
Taken prisoner by Sith Lords, Gav and Jori are used
as pawns by the ambitious Naga Sadow—who has
just declared himself the new Dark Lord. The twins
spend weeks hiding under Sadow's treacherous
protection, while the Dark Lord begins training Gav in
the Sith magic of illusions.
Naga Sadow has plans, though, to use the brother and
sister as scapegoats: he wishes to expand the Sith Empire, to
launch a war of conquest against the Republic—but first he
must defeat his deadly rival, Ludo Kressh. Dropping hints and
planting spies, Sadow lures Kressh into attacking his seemingly
vulnerable fortress. In the full devastation of battle, Naga
Sadow separates Gav and Jori, forcing Jori to take their
impounded ship, Starbreaker 12, to escape alone back to the
heart of the Republic.
After Jori flees, Sadow springs his surprise on Ludo, wiping out the
rival's fleet while Ludo himself barely escapes. Now with his
opponent trounced, Sadow can move the military might of the Sith
Empire on its greatest conquest—against the unsuspecting Republic.
A secret transmitter hidden in Jori's ship will show them exactly where
The Sith Empire has rallied its forces for an all-out battle for control of the galaxy. Its goal: Crush the Republic. And with so many Sith Masters among them, the goal is not unachievable. As Naga Sadow readies his fleet to attack, one lone person threatens to undermine the entire campaign — Jori Daragon. She isn't a Jedi. She's an explorer, a mapper of hyperspace who stumbled on the plans of the Sith. And she just may be the savior of the Republic.
