Book Summary: THE COST OF FAILURE. To command an IMPERIAL DESTROYER is a coveted position. But with such great responsibility comes grave consequences if you fail your mission. How far will one officer go to spare himself from the judgment of DARTH VADER?
Book Review: It seems these issues are not connected on any level with the exception of having Vader somewhere within the pages. Unfortunately in this issue, his appearances are brief but the affect of him is felt throughout. We meet Hallum whom is shows you (albeit briefly) the terror and horror of what it is like to be at the forefront of Vader's anger and it is not pretty whatsoever. Anyone whom has displeased him seems to have met this sort of fate and thus our main character Hallum is trying desperately to avoid such a fate. He knows the role of being in charge of your own star destroyer is a coveted role but this role comes with tons of stress to the point that you will need to do anything in your power to insure that it remained in such a way.

This issue was not my favorite. The main character seemed to be one-dimensional when he shouldn't have. His anger was laughable and didn't come across as serious as it should have been. Otherwise this issue was interesting. I can sympathize with the character though especially when you have someone like Vader breathing down your neck.
