Consumed by the belief that the dark Jedi Asajj Ventress still lives, Obi-Wan Kenobi has temporarily forsaken the Clone Wars and recruited Anakin Skywalker in his desperate hunt for Ventress.
But Anakin still believes that Obi-Wan is chasing a ghost-and he should know, because he himself killed Ventress. And Anakin's doubts are not assuaged when, following the trail of the rumors of Ventress' existence, they walk into a trap set by their old enemy, the bounty hunter Durge!
Really a part of Star Wars: Republic, for all intents and purpopses. Separated out into a miniseries of its own so it would be more "hype-able" in the run-up to the release of Episode III, and so it could more speicifically follow the tale of Obi-Wan and Anakin.Taken with the animated Clone Wars second season and Pocket Books Cloak of Deception, it gives readers a full view of events immediately prior to the opening scene of Episode III.
