The saga of Quinlan Vos, a troubled Jedi still trying to regain stability after having his memory erased, continues in this story arc. Despite his successful mission on Dathomir, the Jedi Council still feels that he walks dangerously close to the dark side. Kiffex, a prison planet under watch by the Guardians, is suddenly thrust into chaos when an unidentified enemy decimates a security compound. Quinlan Vos is specifically requested to investigate because of his Guardian ancestry, and he soon finds himself on another suicide mission. Developing subplots first introduced in "Twilight" and "Infinity's End" and debuting new characters, this beginning salvo of "Darkness" sets the stage for a harrowing tale of horror and adventure.
