Shortlisted for the #Wattys2018. 
In the final hours of Emperor Palpatine's reign, newly promoted Captain Pina of the Star Destroyer Reaver is sent to quell unrest amidst the vast refugee camps on the planet Farsalt.

Unearthing a nest of conspiracies, Captain Pina will be forced to reconsider everything he believes about the Empire he serves in events that will change the planet Farsalt forever, and with it the lives of the Lady Jish, handmaiden to the queen, and the Princess Tayre and her adopted sister Ella.

And for Assayer Neerada, tasked by Lord Vader to hunt down Force Sensitives, Farsalt presents an end and a beginning - but only if she can survive long enough.

This is great I love reading characters inner thoughts especially characters like Vader where we usuallly have him as mysterious, dark, and violent and hard to read him because of his mask.

Yeah, I guess that's why "Luke, I'm your father" was so shocking - nobody could imagine Darth Vader being in love. (Okay, the adults among us know that's not the only way to produce a child, but I was six when I saw that scene for the first time...)
No. This is grammatically correct. It means relatively the same thing, this just adds a kind of invisible imagery.
Ooooh. Nice first chapter! An interesting bit of insight into Vader's mind, how one might imagine he really felt about Palpatine near the end. I look forward to reading more!

Loved your prologue, definitely has the correct star wars feel to it.   :)

I love that Vader isn't suddenly yearning to return to the Light, or hoping for the "good" side to win, but that he still believes in the supremacy of the Dark side of the Force.
