Publisher's summary

As the war between the Republic and the scattered remnants of the Empire continues, two children—the Jedi twins—will come into their powers in a universe on the brink of vast changes and challenges. In this time of turmoil and discovery, an extraordinary new Star Wars saga begins…

While Luke Skywalker takes the first step toward setting up an academy to train a new order of Jedi Knights, Han Solo and Chewbacca are taken prisoner on the planet Kessel and forced to work in the fathomless depths of a spice mine.

But when Han and Chewie break away, they flee desperately to a secret Imperial research laboratory surrounded by a cluster of black holes—and go from one danger to a far greater one…

On Kessel, Luke picks up the trail of his two friends, only to come face-to-face with a weapon so awesome, it can wipe out an entire solar system. It is a death ship called the Sun Crusher, invented by a reclusive genius and piloted by none other than Han himself…

Behind the scenes

At one point Luke thinks back to his duel with Darth Vader on Bespin, and that Vader told him, "Luke, I am your father!" This is a frequent real-world misquotation of the actual line, "No, I am your father!"

Han tells Kyp that he and Leia met Vima-Da-Boda on Nal Hutta. However, in Dark Empire, they met her on Nal Hutta's moon, Nar Shaddaa.

Daala, has Grand Moff on her chest insignia in the cover art, despite her admiral rank and insignia referenced correctly in the text.
