Opening crawlEdit

BOOK 5: EMPEROR REBORN
As the Emperor’s World Devastators continue to savage the Alliance, Princess Leia and Han Solo embark on a quest to free Luke Skywalker from the grasp of the Dark Side. 

With Chewbacca and C-3PO, Han and Leia journey to an ancient spaceport moon, refuge of Corellian smugglers. There they encounter bounty hunter Boba Fett, who survived being swallowed by the Sarlacc on Tatooine. 

Thanks to Han’s old friends: ''Salla Zend'' and ''Shug Ninx'', the Millennium Falcon and its crew escape to hyperspace aboard Salla’s ''Starlight Intruder'' – a hot rod freighter licensed to haul military cargo to the Deep Galactic Core. 

Boba Fett pursues the ''Intruder'', but meets disaster over Byss – the Emperor’s throne world – when he attempts to sneak past the planet’s security shields. 

Once in port, Leia uses her Jedi powers to guide the Millennium Falcon to the citadel where Luke now reigns as the Emperor’s protégé. A vicious fight ensues, but according to plan, Ninx and Salla save the Falcon – and Leia, Han, Chewbacca, and C-3PO allow themselves to be captured. 

Brought at last into the presence of Emperor Palpatine and his Supreme Commander Luke Skywalker, Leia makes a valiant attempt to save luke [sic], using her intensifying control of the Force. 

But the Emperor cannot be overcome so easily. He gives Leia a painful demonstration of his ever-expanding power, crowing in triumph that he has finally captured the last of the Jedi!

Publisher's summaryEdit

Captured by the Emperor, Leia discovers that he holds hostage an even greater treasure: a mysterious and intelligent artifact called the Jedi Holocron. With both the Holocron and Luke Skywalker under his control, there's no limit to what the Emperor can do! Written by Tom Veitch, with painted art by Cam Kennedy and painted cover by Dave Dorman. Don't miss out on the hottest series this side of Tatooine!
