As someone who loves Darth Maul, I have to say that this story was really good! I loved seeing Darth Maul on what I assume is his very first mission (This was before Shadow Hunter), going out and using not only his fighting skills but also his brains and cunning to outwit his enemies. He manages to make two factions fight each other and destroy one another in order to make way for the Trade Federation to take over the planet's primary industry.

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!

I enjoyed this short read, finishing it in only a few sittings. It was an entertaining, albeit brief look at one of the missions on which Darth Maul is sent during the Darth Plagueis book.

The core content is fairly well written, though it is only lightly enriched by the presence of Darth Maul. He is not a central character in the story, though he is the force behind the movement in the book. It's a different side of Darth Maul than I had expected, but it makes sense given the political machinations of Darth Sidious and why he sent Maul on this mission.

If you've read Darth Plagueis (I'm sorry, first of all - see my review of it) and want to pick up the Darth Maul story from there, this is the place to start. From here, Shadow Hunter comes next. I'm just about to start that one and am looking forward to following up with Maul: Lockdown.

If you're interested in Darth Maul, take this one for a spin.

I read this book over the course of about two-three hours, and it is just what my title says it is: a quick and dirty introduction to Darth Maul. It introduces him as the apprentice to Darth Sydious, sets him up for his work with the Black Suns and the Trade Federation (which is covered in Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter), and starts the ball rolling for Episode I.

This was the first sci-fi book (story) I read. The only problem I have is trying to pronounce the names. I also have the problem of figuring out what some of these creature things look like. I read this because I wanted to read more about Darth Maul. This just caused me to fall head first into the Star Wars expanded universe. I just wish there could have been more stories about Darth Maul's adventures. I thought this was a good place to start with Star Wars and Sci-Fi. I liked it because it seemed normal. This was a normal mission that Maul was sent on. It was realistic in its unrealistic-ness... if that makes sense.

A few hundred more pages would suffice as this story was just getting good. This was a perfect set up piece for the next installment in the series and look forward to all and or any involving the awesome Darth Maul.

This is not a jaw-dropping, revelation-filled, "I am your father" story by any means, but if you're looking for more Darth Maul action, this is a good read, and it's quick.

It was cool to see DM doing some stealth work instead of straight up slaughter. Reminded me of an 80's action flick.

This story also fills in some gaps in the EU. Not important ones, but when you read the book Darth Plagueis and you wonder what the heck Darth Sideous is referencing, well this is one of those things. Just read it already! :)

I found this story to be a good read. Just wish it had been a little longer but it does give more insight into the mind of Darth Maul and his relationship with Darth Sidious before his eventual defeat.

I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed this short tale. I found it compelling and enjoyed the characterization, action, politics, and intrigue. It was pretty cool to see the Maul character roughed out a bit more. Such insight, when done well, is always exciting. Thanks to Mr. Luceno and all of the authors that worked on it. I also appreciate that there was no objectionable material. Peace out.
