Overview

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 Hans 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...

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Princess Leia and Han Solo have three kids and live as a respectable political couple in the capital of the New Republic. Luke Skywalker has returned to the Jedi fold after having given in to the dark side of the Force. C3P0 and R2D2 remain faithful droid sidekicks in a universe now freeing itself from the bondage of the evil Empire. These familiar characters inhabit some new places and situations in Anderson's ( Star Wars: Jedi Search ) sequel to the Star Wars movies. Luke has decided to rebuild the once powerful Jedi Knights in hope of providing stability in the New Republic. He finds himself in precarious circumstances as he searches for descendants of the mostly exterminated Jedis. Meanwhile, Han finds himself trapped in an Empire base located in a black hole under the command of a ruthless woman who has not yet heard of the Emperor's defeat and demise. Leia sends Luke and Lando Calrissian to find her missing husband. Han's escape from the black hole with a weapon more destructive than the Empire's Death Stars, and Luke and Lando's rush to his rescue, close out this predictable, tiring tale. Even big fans of the movies will have a hard time staying with this one. (Mar.)
