If you are looking for a story that has Darth Maul in heavy combat, this may not be the story for you. He does engage in combat in this book, but it's more planning and subterfuge than just battle and Maul slicing through people with his double-bladed lightsaber. But I really enjoyed this story and I enjoyed every bit of it and I recommend it to any fans of Darth Maul. Check it out!
He's sent to a mining world. Two feuding companies are the majority of the world's economy.
Sidious wants to hand the world to the Trade Federation. In doing so he'd gain complete control of the federation.
The 2 companies hated each other already and many employees already wanted to bring down both companies. Maul used their hate to encourage both companies to sabotage each other excessively. Then encouraged them to kill each other.
By the end both companies collapsed and merged into a unified mining world. The trade federation had exclusive shipping for that world and their power in the senate. The trade federation was also impressed and frightened of Sidious.
To Sum Up: This is one of many stories that shows Darth Sidious consolidating his power and how the Sith nudged Republic towards the Dark Side.
In this volume, we are taken to the world of Dorvalla, that has a highly sought after mineral. There are two competing mining companies that are looking for dominance: Intergalactic Ore and Lommite Limited (abbreviated LL throughout the book). Intergalactic has been sabotaging LL's ships and the recent one (closer to the beginning of the book) caused a lot of damage and enraged the CEO of the company. They make the decision to fight fire with fire, since going to the senate would be worthless. In comes Darth Maul, who is sent to make the situation favorable. The Sith are looking to set up a relationship with the Trade Federation, and this is a great way to do it. Without spoiling too much, the book is mostly espionage, both corporate and force wielding.
Keep in mind that this book is short. If it was printed, it would be under 100 pages. The storyline is not overly complicated, unlike some of the others in the expanded universe. There is not a whole lot of action, it's more subterfuge than anything else. It's a good, quick read. I didn't think it was as focused on Darth Maul as the title led me to believe but that is really my only "complaint". Good book and definitely worth the buck and a half.
