Nearly four thousand years before the birth of Luke Skywalker, the galaxy faces its greatest threat since the founding of the Republic. In a time when the Sith Empire is but a bitter memory, an ancient evil rises again, corrupting one of the Jedi's finest and igniting a war that ravages worlds. The Sith are reborn, ties of friendship and family are betrayed, and the course of the galaxy's future is forever altered...

Set thousands of years before Star Wars: A New Hope, each volume of the Tales of the Jedi Omnibus collects the best classic Star Wars comics stories in one bumper-sized library edition - the ultimate history guide to the galaxy's greatest action series.

In a time when Jedi were numerous and the Empire but a bitter memory, an ancient evil rose again, igniting a war that ravaged worlds. The Sith were reborn, friendships were betrayed, and the lives of Nomi Sunrider and Ulic Qel-Droma were changed forever.

Almost four centuries before the destruction of the Death Star, Jedi Master Arca and his three Jedi apprentices - Ulic Qel-Droma, Cay Qel-Droma and Tot Donetta - have succeeded in bringing peace to Onderon, a planet long divided into warring tribes.

Following the death of Queen Amanoa of Iziz, her daughter Galia has ascended to the throne, sharing power with her husband, the Beast-Lord Oron Kira. However, many Onderonians still worship the memory of Freedon Nadd, a Dark Jedi who ruled the planet centuries earlier.

Joining with mutinous officers from Onderon's royal military, the Naddists are staging violent protests inside the great walled city of Iziz, and Queen Galia's new government is on the verge of collapse...

For fans of the Star Wars franchise this will make an interesting addition to your collection.
