Similar to how the game Bounty Hunter gave us some insight to Jango Fett, Shadow Hunter follows Darth Maul on a mission to recover a Sith Holocron that contains all of his Master's plans to overthrow the Republic. The holocron was stolen by an AWOL Neimoidian from the Trade Federation, who then passes it on to an information dealer named Lorn Pavan and his droid companion I-5YQ. Meanwhile, Padawan Darsha Assant is undergoing her Jedi Trials and comes across Lorn and I-Five, and Darth Maul soon picks up their trail. What follows is a series of events detailing Maul's pursuit of the trio and their attempts to lose him. It's a good book that allows us to experience a very underdeveloped character, and definitely worth a read if you get the chance.
