That which cannot be seen can be more damning than that which is seen.

Golden Age of the Republic: Hidden Truths is the first Star Wars novel written by Fiolli. Set in the prosperous period after the Ruusan Reformation, the novel explores crisis and intrigue within the Republic as individuals attempt to subvert the peace for personal gain. Hidden Truths was officially released on 11 January 2010, one year after its initial conception. The cover was initially released on 31 January 2009, showing Special Agent Evening Delwynn, the story's principal protagonist, during part of the investigation.


It was a time when the Republic was at its height. Peace had been achieved with the close of New Sith Wars on Ruusan. The subsequent Ruusan Reformation changed the face of the galaxy, with sweeping reforms in the Republic military and the Jedi Order. Even with the Sith less visible, other menaces lurked within the Republic, aiming for its downfall. In spite of this, the Republic continued to prosper and expand; its wealth burgeoned and its society unaware of true hardship. Such stability and growth, however, came at a price. The price was the lives of the unseen heroes of the Republic's Golden Age: The heroes whose names may never grace the halls of honor.

An honest Senator stares at his datapad. Alone, in the darkness of night, he sits in his office, not speaking, not even thinking. He stares, blankly. He cannot believe what he sees on his viewscreen. Could another Senator truly be involved in drug smuggling, judicial fraud, and, most concerning of all, weapons trafficking? He remains seated, befuddled, unbelieving of what his eyes read from three independent informants. Surely the Judicial Forces would need to investigate this, but could the conspiracy go so deep that it will never be completely uprooted? Regaining his thought-process, he begins pondering his actions. Who should he turn to? Who can he trust? After a moment of heavy thought, he comes to an inevitable conclusion: It is time notify the one person in the Judicial Forces he knows that he can trust without doubt, Evening Delwynn.

With a new team assembled to assist the investigation, Agent Delwynn must cast aside her past and focus on discovering the hidden truths of the Senator's dealings. If not, peace within her own soul may not be the only thing at stake; perhaps, also, peace within the Republic.…
