Luke Skywalker and the ragtag rebel band opposing the Galactic Empire are fresh off their biggest victory yet - the destruction of the massive Death Star. But the Empire's not toppled yet! Join Luke, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2 and the rest of the Rebel Alliance as they fight for freedom against the evil of Darth Vader and his master, the Emperor! But when a Rebel assault goes very wrong, Han and Leia will have to think fast to make their escape...while Luke finds himself faceto-face with Darth Vader!
In the explosive aftermath, a humbled Luke returns to Tatooine to learn more about his mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi. Meanwhile, Leia and Han undertake a vital - and dangerous -secret mission...but can they succeed without Luke?

This story occurs between six and twelve months after Episode IV: A New Hope.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

"This book did for me what Shadows of the Empire did for me all those years ago. It brought all those heroes and iconic villains back, while maintaining a cohesiveness, the right tempo and the perfect vibe. The story draws you immediately in and won’t let go till the very end, at which point you’ll crave the next issues.
My only problem with this book is, when I detach my emotional self from it and look at it purely objective, then I see that this one is a bit too full of special events and over the top successes. It all starts with the biggest weapons factory (they could have gone with one of the top five, but NO, it had to be THE biggest one). Within the first six issues Luke encounters and manages to survive not one, but TWO of this time periods biggest baddies. The second encounter could really have waited a few more issues, but I understand this helped sell the books back then.
Obviously very divisive is the reveal of the identity of one dark skinned female at the end, that might be part of that young Han Solo movie in the future.
Emotionally speaking the book is a delight, but sometimes it goes to the point of guilty pleasure… but it is pleasure after all!
And it is so much better than that Brian Wood series..."

Rating: 4 / 5
