As far as needing to read any prior material, you don't need to read the previous TOR books as none of them connect. Though you may want to read The Old Republic The Lost Suns graphic novel as that is where these characters are introduced. It's in no way necessary as Karpyshyn makes sure the reader knows that went down in the graphic novel.
As far as story I was skeptical going in to this book, characters that no one knows with a villain that no one knows but I was proven wrong. The characters are alive and have emotions which can be rare sometimes. You never miss the Jedi or Sith as far as being central figures in the story and you'll enjoy the pacing of the story.
If you like Star Wars you'll like this book. If you like TOR era in particualr you'll like this book. If you like good singular Star Wars novels that don't connect with 30 other books you'll like this.
A must read for Legends fans!
Theron doesn't have any Force abilities but he joined SIS in order to serve the Republic and he sets out in the beginning to assist a friend that doesn't want his help. In doing so his boss bench's him and he's assigned to work on a plan to destroy the Empire's greatest weapon, the Ascendent Spear. It's a ship created by a Darth that requires a Sith to interface with it directly and draw on the force making it a very menacing machine.
Theron makes it known that he was on the team of analysts who comes up with the plan and is called into the briefing by the Supreme Commander of the Republic, who turns out to have some history with Satele Shan who is now the Grand Master of the Jedi Order. Representing the Jedi is Master Gnost – Dural, and it's his former Padawan, Darth Karrid who controls the Spear.
Lot's of action, a quick pace, and some humor mixed in with a Twi'lek. Annihilation is a good addition to the Star Wars Universe.
The crux of this story is that Sith Empire has a super ship called "The Ascendant Spear" that can destroy entire republic fleets by it's self. This is for two reasons, #1 it's the biggest most powerful ship that's ever been built #2 it was built by a Sith lord who built it so a Sith lord can literally plug herself into the ship and the Sith lord and the ship become as one. The Republic realizes that it cannot destroy the ship from outside, it must be done by sabotage, hence the need for the character on the cover. I liked this book because it had a lot of twists and turns in the plot, particularly when the character on the cover is dealing with the Twilek smuggler that he has a crush on. The one thing I didn't like about this book is the words the author uses to describe the action. For instance during a fire fight in a corridor, eliminating all remaining enemy soldiers is referred to a "mowing them down".
