According to NJOE.com, the Science Fiction Book Club website has a summary online for The Force Unleashed, Sean Williams' novelization of the story behind the up-coming computer game.
The SFBC website can only be read by paying members, so I've not been able to confirm this yet, but I'm pretty sure that it is legitimate. As we explained when they produced an early blurb for Invincible, their editors get to read the books well in advance.
The Force Unleashed summary reads like a straight transcription of a copywriter's blurb, compared to the somewhat hectic (but, in the end, very accurate) plot summary they gave out for Invincible. That means there are no major plot spoilers this time, but it does give us a straightforward run-down of the story's premise and lead characters.
Nevertheless, I've blanked out the text for now, as it does contain some basic spoilers--highlight below to read:
Set in the dark times between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, this stand-alone novel delves deeper into Darth Vader?s history, revealing the origins of his secret Apprentice and Vader?s ultimate plans for him.
Trained from childhood by Vader himself, the Apprentice is ready for the final test: he must hunt down and destroy the last of Vader?s old enemies-the Jedi. Aided by Imperial pilot Juno Eclipse and the droid PROXY, the Apprentice has no qualms obeying his master?s commands-until he has a fateful epiphany that will change everything he knows about who he is?and what he is meant to accomplish.
Shedding new light on events in the Star Wars universe, this exciting novel will rev you up for the action-packed video game!
That's all for now, but we'll bring you more on this story as we get it!
