New Star Wars: The Old Republic Novel Cover Revealed!
Revealed by the author himself at last year’s New York Comic-Con and scheduled to be released on November 13, 2012, Star Wars: The Old Republic: Annihilation is Drew Karpyshyn’s second novel set in the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO universe. Drew’s previous TOR novel (that’s TOR as in The Old Republic), Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan, focused on the eponymous character’s continuing storyline beyond the original Knights of the Old Republic video game and leading into Star Wars: The Old Republic.
From the official The Old Republic website:
Annihilation is set right after the events in the game Star Wars: The Old Republic. The Emperor is believed dead and the Sith Empire prepares a massive counter-attack against the Republic spearheaded by Darth Karrid, the former apprentice of Darth Malgus. The instrument of her vengeance is the Ascendent Spear, a devastating warship augmented with the dark side of the Force. Republic agent SIS Theron Shan, his Twi’lek smuggler compadre, Teff’ith, and Jedi Master Gnost-Dural are joined by Jedi Grand Master Satele Shan and Jace Malcom in a fast-paced, tension-fraught thriller.
