Delve into the history of the sinister Count Dooku in this audio original set in a galaxy far, far away….
Darth Tyranus. Count of Serenno. Leader of the Separatists. A red saber, unsheathed in the dark. But who was he, before he became the right hand of the Sith? As Dooku courts a new apprentice, the hidden truth of the Sith Lord’s past begins to come to light.
Dooku’s life began as one of privilege—born within the stony walls of his family’s estate, orbited by the Funeral Moon where the bones of his ancestors lie interred. But soon his Jedi abilities are recognized and he is taken from his home to be trained in the ways of the Force by the legendary Master Yoda.
As he hones his power, Dooku rises through the ranks, befriending fellow Jedi Sifo-Dyas and taking a padawan of his own, the promising Qui-Gon Jinn—and tries to forget the life that he once led. But he finds himself drawn by a strange fascination with the Jedi Master Lene Kostana, and the mission she undertakes for the Order: finding and studying ancient relics of the Sith, in preparation for the eventual return of the deadliest enemies the Jedi have ever faced.
Caught between the world of the Jedi, the ancient responsibilities of his lost home, and the alluring power of the relics, Dooku struggles to stay in the light—even as the darkness begins to fall.

Pretty Good; but had one main flaw
Let me start out that I love the full cast aspect and how it talks about Dooku’s past and showing Ventress’ role in this. The main flaw is that at times, it is a bit confusing about who is talking, especially between some of the Jedi. Some of the voices are very similar, so it is hard to figure out who is talking to who at times. However I do like that there is a full cast. There is also a ton of character development. The book finishes up Smith a bang. Overall this a book like no other, I would recommend it, but the reader needs to pay extra special attention to who’s talking at all times. Very good book!
Great back story fill in between the Clone Wars and movies
This is Dooku’s back story which fills in the holes when we were given a new bad guy in the movies then further explored in The Clone Wars. Its six hours of tying up loose threads of many story lines introduced in Clone Wars weaving in characters that were only name drops thru out the series. If you’re a fan of Clone Wars, its a must have.
A more worthwhile story than rogue one
This should be a movie or a tv series!
