Cover Preview: Star Wars: Riptide by Paul S. Kemp

The official site has released its First Look at Star Wars: Riptide by Paul S. Kemp.  This paperback novel is the sequel to the author's best selling 2010 Star Wars debut, Crosscurrent. 

Riptide follows the adventures of Jedi Knight Jaden Korr as he reacts to the events of Crosscurrent and attempts to track down the crazy Dark Jedi clones.  A book with Jedi, Sith, and crazy Jedi clones.  This one looks like a can't miss.

Official Site Blurb: 

When a ship full of Sith warriors arrived in Galactic Alliance space, the fight to destroy it accidentally uncovered a deadly menace: a long-hidden group of clones, secretly created as insidious weapons capable of wielding the Force and heedless of the differences between light side and dark side. Now the clones have escaped -- and evidence suggests they are flawed by genetic disease and violent madness. Jedi Knight Jaden Korr pursues the clones, hoping to heal them but prepared to destroy them. What he doesn't know is that Sith agents are hot on his heels, determined not only to recover the clones for their Master but to capture Jaden for their own dark-side purposes. In a life-or-death battle, Jaden will confront a shocking reality that will rock him to his core and bring him face-to-face with the question of what makes a man... and a Jedi.
