A new beginning for the Old Republic! The Republic and the Mandalorians are at war, and some of the Jedi are joining the fight! One Jedi, peace-loving Zayne Carrick, has found himself on the front lines against his wishes - he's been drafted! And when Zayne is captured by the Mandalorians while storming beaches with his fellow Republic troops, he suddenly is forced not only to fight, but to fight alongside the enemy! Soon, he finds there is much more to the Mandies - and their leader - than meets the eye, and he is going to have to do everything in his power to prevent bloodshed . . . like calling in a favor from an old friend and putting together a plan!
