Dark Disciple is a canon novel by Christie Golden, and is part of the The Clone Wars Legacy multimedia initiative. It is based on a story arc originally scripted for the The Clone Wars television series prior to it's cancellation.

Publisher's Summary

In the war for control of the galaxy between the armies of the dark side and the Republic, former Jedi Master turned ruthless Sith Lord Count Dooku has grown ever more brutal in his tactics. Despite the powers of the Jedi and the military prowess of their clone army, the sheer number of fatalities is taking a terrible toll. And when Dooku orders the massacre of a flotilla of helpless refugees, the Jedi Council feels it has no choice but to take drastic action: targeting the man responsible for so many war atrocities, Count Dooku himself.

But the ever-elusive Dooku is dangerous prey for even the most skilled hunter. So the Council makes the bold decision to bring both sides of the Force's power to bear—pairing brash Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos with infamous one-time Sith acolyte Asajj Ventress. Though Jedi distrust for the cunning killer who once served at Dooku's side still runs deep, Ventress's hatred for her former master runs deeper. She's more than willing to lend her copious talents as a bounty hunter—and assassin—to Vos's quest.

Together, Ventress and Vos are the best hope for eliminating Dooku—as long as the emerging feelings between them don't compromise their mission. But Ventress is determined to have her retribution and at last let go of her dark Sith past. Balancing the complicated emotions she feels for Vos with the fury of her warrior's spirit, she resolves to claim victory on all fronts—a vow that will be mercilessly tested by her deadly enemy . . . and her own doubt.

    • News: Sword of the Jedi trilogy on hold

      Author Christie Golden has confirmed that her upcoming trilogy Sword of the Jedi is on hold.Sword of the Jedi was to be set after the events of Fate of the Jedi and Troy Denning's stand alone novel Crucible, and follow Jaina Solo. But the series is now on hold while the newly formed Lucasfilm Story Group reviews the Star Wars canon.

      The Legacy era has been the main focus of a lot of expanded universe novels in recent years, with Legacy of the Force and Fate of the Jedi proving popular with fans, so it would be a shame if it were to suffer casualties as canon is redefined.

      Sword of the Jedi promised to be a welcome change with less involvement from the old heroes and more focus on the new generations of Jedi Knights in the aftermath of recent events.
