Opening crawlEdit

Believing he can resolve the Galactic conflict by learning the Emperor’s darkest secrets, Luke Skywalker has at last taken his father’s place as the Emperor’s protégé and Supreme Commander of the Imperial forces.

The Emperor, for his part, hopes to push his “young apprentice” over the edge, deep into the seductive embrace of the Dark Side of the Force.

Luke’s decision to follow his father’s destiny is a dangerous and perhaps foolhardy one, for the Emperor has now launched a massive assault upon the crumbling New Republic.

As the Emperor’s inexorable World Devastators smash the floating cities of Admiral Ackbar’s home planet, Lando Calrissian and Wedge Antilles lead Rebel forces in a fierce – and fruitless – attempt to save the gentle Mon Calamari.

Meanwhile, Han Solo and Leia Organa embark on a quest to free Luke. Together with Chewbacca and C-3PO they journey to Nar Shaddaa, a smugglers’ moon orbiting the Hutt homeworld. There they find Han’s old friend, Shug Ninx, and old girlfriend, Salla Zend, who owns a ship that can travel the Deep Galactic Core with impunity.

And there Leia meets Vima-Da-Boda, an old woman Jedi overlooked in the great purge, who gives Leia a mysterious gift.

But the highest clan of Hutts, brothers of the dead gangster Jabba, have placed a fabulous price on the heads of Han and Leia... a price that attracts the attention of an old enemy: Boba Fett!

Publisher's summaryEdit

Betrayed by their friends and pursued by everyone's favorite bounty hunter, Han and Leia try to escape from Nar Shaddaa. Meanwhile, the Rebels in combat over the planet Calamari receive aid from an unexpected source, and Luke falls deeper into the grip of the Dark Side!
