Dark Disciple by Christie Golden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ventress is one of Star Wars best anti-hero characters. Her arc in the Clone Wars was a great part of a great series. Dark Disciple continues and close that arc. Her growth and redemption was well done. But even more interesting was Vos's descent to the dark side and his ultimate redemption. The fall to the dark side can sometimes be construed in simplistic terms: the character just wants power or is crudely selfish. But Vos's descent -- not unlike Anakin's -- is fueled by love and commitment. This is far more interesting and allows the reader to explore the relationship between light and dark.
