Star Wars: The Hunter's Gambit: Book 1, Revelations

Winning the Great Hunt of Mandalore was just a turning point. Erikson Autarchic survived far greater ordeals which propelled him to victory in one of the galaxy’s more infamous tribunals of skill, courage, and cunning; and it’s been nearly ten years since. The showdown between him and the two catalysts which forced this journey upon him is looming ever nearer.Set nearly a thousand years before the slaughter of Darth Plageuis and the rise of Emperor Palpatine with the execution of order 66, this series is about a young boy whose family was ripped away by Jedi serving the Republic. They wanted no opposition and followed their orders meticulously to terminate all non-Jedi orchestrated training and control all new Force sensitive beings to serve the Republic or be watched closely. This included the Revanite training camps where this young boy would be separated from his family.He was deemed not Force sensitive by the Jedi and orphaned while his parents and sister were sent to a prison and reeducation facility on a distant world. As he aged he learned a great many skills ranging from pilot and engineer to warrior and spy in the ranks of the Republic Navy all the while unraveling his secret powers, still unnoticed by the Jedi.From the age of five until twenty-two, this victim of Republic arrogance acquired skill after skill until he found a calling as a smuggler bringing medicine to the victims of the Republic’s war with the Empire in order to earn the credits to free his family from that Republic prison planet by paying the tyrannical fines levied against them. Some benevolent defenders of liberty the Jedi and their Republic turned out to be.Eventually Republic law caught up to this young smuggler and his ship was confiscated. To make matters worse, he learned shortly thereafter that Imperial operations succeeded in destroying that Republic prison in a raid against Jedi leadership.Ten years later with nothing to lose, grudges still burning hot, and a team of allies at his side, Erikson Autarchic is about to change things forever if he survives the return of Revan.
