In order to help his friend Bomo Greenbark, Jedi Dass Jennir has been forced into a series of questionable actions-and none is more potentially destructive than the one he now contemplates.

The dark times have barely begun, and already Dass Jennir is so engulfed in darkness, he wonders if he will ever find his way back!
