In volume two, the Emperor’s plan has been revealed! He’s had a cyborg scientist creating cyborg agents to take Vader’s place. Vader sees these replacements as abominations and is determined to beat them. He sets out to find the boy he now knows is his son and take down the Emperor.
I found this volume rather boring. The only thing that kept me turning pages was wanting to know if Aphra got caught. The storyline with the cyborg characters I was not interested in. I didn’t like the characters anymore than Vader does. It just seemed a bit out of character for the Emperor to actually want to replace Vader with a non Force wielding soldier when he is so dedicated to the Dark Side.
I give this one Two and a Half Lightsabers.
