About this title

Synopsis:

The conclusion of the Dark Forces trilogy of graphic novels based on the popular CD-ROM games, "Dark Forces" and "Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II," follows former Imperial soldier Kyle Katarn into battle against the Dark Jedi Jerec. 25,000 first printing.

Review:

As the title suggests in this final volume of William Dietz's illustrated trilogy of Star Wars: Dark Forces novels, this is a tale of a Jedi Knight. But which Jedi Knight? While the ex-storm trooper turned Rebel spy Kyle Katarn is the ostensible hero of the three books, his father is also a Jedi Knight of sorts. Kyle has done the impossible and trained himself in the way of the Force, but readers learn that his father had also glimpsed the Jedi way and had turned back. In addition, the novel is populated with a number of Dark Jedi, notably Yun, who sometimes question their Dark path. And then there are the Jedi Masters--Rahn and Luke Skywalker--who stand literally and figuratively as spiritual guides to Kyle. Finally, there is the Valley of the Jedi. The Valley is the heart of the book: Dark Jedi Jerec wants to harness its concentration of the Force for his dreams of interstellar domination; and the Jedi Rebels want to protect it or destroy it before it falls into the Empire's hands. As Kyle races his Dark Side counterparts to the secret of the Valley, readers will recall the best mythic moments (Luke's attack on the first Death Star or his final duel with Darth Vader) from the Star Wars films.

In the end, Jedi Knight is a short novel of epic proportions that neatly ties up the many threads presented in Dietz's first two installments (Soldier for the Empire and Rebel Agent). Eisner-winning artist Dave Dorman brings Kyle and his love, Jan, to vivid life in his series of painted scenes scattered throughout the text. --Patrick O'Kelley
