Set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, the story finds Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, and R2-D2 stranded on a mysterious planet, and explores a dangerous duel between Luke and a strange new villain.

Hidden in the story are also hints and clues about The Force Awakens.

This story begins several months after Episode IV: A New Hope.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

Heir to the Jedi was more concernd with Luke dealing with his past in order to set upon his path to the future. This one tells the story of his first steps while travelling this path almost alone and without true guidance. Mainly because it is a much shorter read and there is no awkward first person narrative I prefer Fry's book to the one by Hearne, but both are not really spectacular. I loved Fry's work on the "Servants of the Empire" series of books so there was no way I would have skipped this, but up to this point this is the most average of his writings. Still, because it is a short read I would recommend it, as it does have nice insights into the way the force works. But as with Fry's football matches and training drills, his space battles here are not his brightest moments. I prefer when he sticks to characters, not action.

Rating: 3 / 5
