    Summary:

    Maul dies on Tatooine and wakes up over 40 years in the past. He quickly seizes the opportunity to change his fate on Naboo, to free himself from his Master, to save his brother, and plot a new revenge against Darth Sidious with the advantages of time and foreknowledge.

    Learning the meaning of friendship and family is just a bonus.

    So, I discovered this little gem after reading one of the author's other works, The New Sith Order. It's charming to be sure, and melds both canon and legends material to create a coherent, best of both worlds approach to the lore. Maul is well written, although the presence of some characters in the story feels a bit contrived. Don't be put off by the last part of the summary - there's plenty of combat and violence.
    I'm hopeful that the story continues, but I think that what's currently written suffices for a quick, enjoyable read, and perhaps something more in the future.

    I'm going to rate it with a tentative 3.5/5 for now.

    I enjoyed that. It's too early to rate properly but I gave it a 3/5 for now. Maul going on about how weak Jedi were when he had just been one shot by Obi Wan is amusing.

    I always got the feeling that Maul never entirely recovered mentally from Naboo. What he really needs is the number of a good therapist.
