To begin Vos's training in the dark side, Ventress takes him to her adopted homeworld of Dathomir, a planet that is strong in the dark side. While in Ventress's company, Vos learns about her background, including her enslavement, her apprenticeship to the stranded Jedi Knight Ky Narec, her subsequent apprenticeship, her falling-out with Count Dooku, and the loss of her Nightsister-comrades. During his discipleship, Vos develops a romantic relationship with Ventress, but struggles to avoid fully embracing the dark side of the Force. In an effort to drive Vos closer to the dark side, Ventress claims that Dooku had murdered his later Master Tholme; when in reality, she had been the real culprit. Under the tutelage of Ventress, Vos undergoes a rigorous training-regime designed to expose him to Nightsister-culture while simultaneously boosting his strength, endurance, fighting spirit, and Force-powers.
Shortly later, Asajj and her bounty hunter allies arrive on Serenno to rescue Quinlan Vos. As part of their plan, the bounty hunters stage a diversion by attacking Dooku's battle droids. Meanwhile, Ventress makes her way into Dooku's palace, where she encountered a vengeful Vos in his cell. Enraged at Ventress for lying about her role in his master's murder, Vos attacks the Nightsister with his lightsaber. Ventress tries to reason with her former disciple by telling him not to let the dark side dominate him, and reminds him about their mission to kill Dooku. Unable to rescue Vos, Ventress is forced to retreat with her bounty hunter confederates. As they leave, she catches a glimpse of Vos walking with Dooku, showing that he has indeed become Dooku's newest Sith apprentice.
While Quinlan Vos's Jedi companions are relieved to rescue their comrade, Ventress sees Vos's eyes flash with fury, and realizes that he has fully embraced the dark side. Ventress attempts to attack her former lover, but is restrained by Kenobi. After freeing Vos, Ventress and the Jedi escape the Separatist dreadnought aboard her starship Banshee. After returning to the Jedi Temple, Ventress is formally pardoned of her crimes by Yoda. However, this news is bittersweet for Asajj, since none of the Jedi believe that Vos had changed sides with the Separatists. Vos attempts to reconcile with Ventress, but she rebuffs him.
But an even greater threat is looming. Millennia in the past, a Sith starship crashed on an unknown low-tech planet, leaving the survivors stranded. Over the generations, their numbers have grown, the ways of the dark side have been nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way, a name whispered to them through the Force: Skywalker.
It is a golden age. Intrepid hyperspace scouts expand the reach of the Republic to the furthest stars, worlds flourish under the benevolent leadership of the Senate, and peace reigns, enforced by the wisdom and strength of the renowned order of Force users known as the Jedi. With the Jedi at the height of their power, the free citizens of the galaxy are confident in their ability to weather any storm But the even brightest light can cast a shadow, and some storms defy any preparation.
Asajj Ventress has had a troubled life and came to the bustling town of Courasant to start over. But when a dark figure from her past makes a reappearance and steals the one she loves, she had to get some help from some old friends to get him back.
