Plot summaryEdit

THE WEAPON OF A JEDI: A LUKE SKYWALKER ADVENTURE
The REBEL ALLIANCE has destroyed the Empire's dreaded
DEATH STAR, but the galaxy remains convulsed by civil war,
and the Imperial starfleet is hunting the rebels throughout the
galaxy.

LUKE SKYWALKER, the pilot who destroyed the Death Star,
is now hailed as a hero. But Luke seeks only to support the
freedom fighters, serving the Rebellion behind the controls of
his X-wing fighter.

Even as he flies alongside the pilots of Red Squadron, Luke
feels stirings in the mystical energy field known as the Force.
And this farm boy turned fighter pilot begins to suspect that his
destiny likes along a different path...

DevelopmentEdit

Author Jason Fry described getting the chance to write Luke Skywalker as "a huge thrill and an awesome responsibility," noting that he felt that "he's eluded some authors." He finished writing the book with a deeper appreciation of Skywalker than he had previously. There is also a new character in the book that he hopes fans will take a liking to.[7]
