Paul S. Kemp is a dab hand as franchise fiction - Riptide is his second Star Wars novel (the first being Star Wars: Crosscurrent which hit the New York Times best seller chart) and also nine novels in the Forgotten Realms fantasy series. Interestingly, Kemp has two original novels (i.e. written in worlds that owe their existence entirely to him and not George Lucus or anyone else!) in the pipeline from Angry Robot. Watch this space.
"In the process of vanquishing a shipload of Sith from the distant past, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr uncovered the frozen results of a horrific cloning experiment: insane Jedi-Sith clones. Only some of those clones thawed...and now they're loose in a galaxy that has enough to deal with under the tightening grip of the evil Darth Caedus. Jaden Korr will have to hunt them down, and if he can't save them, he will have to destroy them! "
