The thrilling conclusion to the Courscant Nights series, "Courscant Nights III: Patterns of Force," written by acclaimed author J.S. Taylor, brings readers back to the dark and dangerous city-planet of Coruscant, where the battle between the dark side and the light side of the Force rages on. Former Jedi turned private investigator, Jax Pavan, is once again pulled into a deadly game of intrigue and betrayal as he uncovers a new conspiracy that threatens to tear the galaxy apart. With the Galactic Empire tightening its grip on Coruscant and the Jedi all but extinct, Jax must rely on his cunning, resourcefulness, and his remaining connection to the Force to confront the shadows that lurk in every corner of the city. As Jax digs deeper into the mystery, he must confront his own past and face the truth about his destiny. Along the way, he reunites with old allies and encounters new enemies, including powerful Sith lords and ruthless Imperial enforcers. With time running out and the stakes higher than ever, Jax must make difficult choices that will determine the fate of the galaxy and the future of the Force itself.
After the Empire’s bloody purge of the Jedi, one lone Knight still fights for those who cannot, unaware that he’s about to be swept into a cataclysmic battle against the Master of Darkness himself.
Throughout the galaxy, a captured Jedi is a dead Jedi, even in Coruscant’s most foul subterranean slums, where Jedi Knight Jax Pavan champions the causes of the oppressed with the help of hard-nosed reporter Den Dhur and the wisecracking droid I-5YQ. But Jax is also involved in another struggle–to unlock the secrets of his father’s death and his own past.
While Jax believes that I-5YQ holds some of those answers, he never imagines that the truth could be shocking enough to catapult him to the frontlines of a plot to kill Emperor Palpatine. Worse yet, Darth Vader’s relentless search for Jax is about to end . . . in triumph.
The future looming over the valiant Jedi and his staunch pals promises to be dark and brief, because there’s no secret whatsoever about the harshest truth of all: Few indeed are those who tangle with Darth Vader . . . and live to tell the tale.
