In case you couldn’t get enough Darth Maul in “The Clone Wars,” a new novel about the Sith Lord has just been announced over at io9.com titled, “Maul: Lockdown.” Here’s the synopsis of the new book, which looks to take place during the events of the Darth Plagueis novel:
From the mind of Joe Schreiber, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Death Troopers, comes the delirious follow-up to last year’s Darth Plagueis. In a tale of retribution and survival set before the events of The Phantom Menace, Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious dispatch Sith apprentice Darth Maul on a secret mission to infiltrate a criminal empire operating from inside Cog Hive Seven-a hidden prison teeming with the galaxy’s most savage criminals. There, he must contend against the scummiest and most villainous in gladiatorial death matches while carrying out his masters’ clandestine commands. Failure is not an option; success will ignite the revenge of the Sith against the Jedi Order.
The book is set to be released at the end of this year, and looks to be a cool story for Darth Maul fans to check out!
