Han Solo and Leia Organa take center stage, and stunning revelations from the past play a critical role in shaping the future, as the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Star by Star now turns to a crucial chapter in the classic Star Wars saga.

The deaths of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine, and victory at the Battle of Endor by no means spelled the end of the Empire. In the aftermath, the New Republic has faced a constant struggle to survive and grow. And now a new threat looms: a masterpiece of Alderaanian art—lost in transit after the planet’s destruction—has resurfaced on the black market. Offered at auction, it will command a handsome price . . . but its greatest value lies in the vital secret it conceals—the key to a code used to communicate with New Republic agents deep undercover within the Empire. Discovery of the key by Imperial forces would spell certain disaster. The only option is recovery—and Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO have been dispatched to Tatooine to infiltrate the auction.

But trouble is waiting when they arrive: an Imperial Star Destroyer is orbiting Tatooine on the lookout for Rebels; a mysterious stranger at the auction seems to recognize Leia; and an Imperial officer’s aggressive bidding for the Alderaanian painting could foil the Solos’ mission. When a dispute erupts into violence, and the painting vanishes in the chaos, Han and Leia are thrust into a desperate race to reclaim it—before Imperial troops or a band of unsavory treasure-peddlers get there first.

Dangerous as the chase is, for Leia it leads into especially dark territory. Already haunted by the specter of her infamous father, and fearful that his evil may infect future generations, she has suffered a disturbing Force-vision of Luke turning to the dark side. As she battles beside Han against marauding TIE fighters, encroaching stormtroopers, and Tatooine’s savage Tusken Raiders, Leia’s struggle with the warring emotions inside her culminates in the discovery of an extraordinary link to the past. And as long-buried secrets and truths at last emerge, she faces a moment of reckoning that will forever alter her destiny . . . and that of the New Republic.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/20/2014

    " Leia and Han are generally my least favorite characters to follow and yet I liked this book anyway. Denning writes a complex story, carefully woven in the fabric of the rest of the SW EU. As a SW fan, worth the time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 2/9/2014

    " Not the worst EU novel I've ever read, but I was expecting a lot more from it. I enjoyed reading as Leia uncovered more information about her father and his life on Tatooine. Almost everything outside of that, however, ended up being pretty dull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Walt | 2/4/2014

    " Clever with some intriguing twists and turns "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/27/2014

    " Neat little bridge between the Classic Star Wars movies and the prequels. And it features a guest spot from Grand Admiral Thrawn "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mauri | 1/24/2014

    " Intriguing. I hav to admit, I was a little annoyed to realize that they were going back and shoe-horning stories in, but whatever. Plot was interesting and I guess it was a part of the story that I wanted to see. Read it in summer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rory (Nightwyrm) | 1/16/2014

    " Total segue piece. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blake | 1/13/2014

    " Denning writes the best SW books, hands down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Thaxton | 1/4/2014

    " An interesting look at Leia trying to reconcile herself to the fact that her father wasn't born a living lump of the Dark Side. A nice tie-in between the first 2 prequel movies and the existing EU. A Forest Apart short story is a fun, short read that's 100% from the point of view of Wookies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wesley | 12/2/2013

    " A pretty unforgettable book in the whole series. Doesn't stick out as one of the best...doesn't stick out as one of the worst. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 10/19/2013

    " Meh. Sort of interesting bridge from final film to novel. I've read better, it actually bored me to tears. And this is Star Wars! I love Star Wars, but you bored me WORSE the Dune ever did. Congrats? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Iverson | 10/16/2013

    " A great stand alone book. This book put me back in to the Star Wars universe after I almost dropped off after Wolverton turned Solo into 5 year old with low self-esteem. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 jessie | 4/18/2013

    " Surprisingly not terrible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 2/10/2013

    " Fun book. Troy did a good job of attempting to bridge the two drastically different trilogies. Overall it's a solid story where Leia meets her grand mother Shimi via journal entries. Along the way she discovers things about her Father. If your a Star Wars nerd this is a good read. Enjoy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ole Kristian | 8/6/2012

    " In thought of the fact that this book was written before the last movie, it's pretty good. In a general summary of this book, it can be boring to times. And the lore is only in small amounts. But hey, everything that contains expanded universe info is gold worth. At least from my point of view. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 4/27/2012

    " Ending was too abrupt :/ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrickderaaff | 2/25/2012

    " Excellent book. This is the first book after Return Of The Jedi (if you follow the SW timeline) where Leia finds out details about her father and grandmother's past on Tatooine that includes elements from the Prequel Trilogy. Very interesting. "
