Novel?

Are there any novels out there with Darth Vader as the main character?

On this epic novelization, the author narrates the tragic tale of the absurd transmutation of Anakin Skywalker, the valiant Jedi Knight to a giant, wall-roamer giant roach.

It's totally canon.

Oedipus Rex is another good one, it really sheds some light on Anakin's reaction to his mother's death in AotC.

Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader by James Luceno is what you should track down. It is part of the Dark Lord Trilogy, which includes Labyrinthe of Evil and the Revenge of The Sith Novelisation.



I thoroughly recommend tracking own the audio book version. SW Audio books are great.

Wait, so is the Metamorphosis a real novel or was it just a joke?

Btw, I'm sure to check out the Rise of Darth Vader. Might even buy the whole trilogy!

Not a bad sort of "day-after-ROTS-happened" type of story.
