No sooner has Darth Vader's funeral pyre burned to ashes on Endor than the Alliance intercepts a call for help from a far-flung Imperial outpost. Bakura is on the edge of known space and the first to meet the Ssi-ruuk, cold-blooded reptilian invaders who, once allied with the now dead Emperor, are approaching Imperial space with only one goal: total domination.

Princess Leia sees the mission as an opportunity to achieve a diplomatic victory for the Alliance. But it assumes even greater importance when a vision of Obi-Wan Kenobi appears to Luke Skywalker with the message that he must go to Bakura - or risk losing everything the Rebels have fought so desperately to achieve.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rob | 2/14/2014

    " Unimpressive, kind of boring, and doesn't even really fit with the universe that well. (If you're going to hold folks to that sort of thing...) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 2/5/2014

    " One of the few SW books that I found tolerable, even though I still had trouble with bits of it character-wise. At least the main characters still sort of resembled those from the films, and at least there's some little bit of romance, however much delayed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ross | 2/1/2014

    " A decent Star Wars book. Even though I can see the logical progression from blowing up the Death Star and killing the Emperor to making a truce with the Empire against a common enemy, one cannot seriously expect said truce to last long. All in all, a very strange book. "

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

    " This one was quite angsty, if I remember correctly. You know how Luke had his absurd, mocked to the end of time reaction to "Luke, I am your father"? Well, this book is Leia's reaction to the same thing. And romance with her and Han. And.. some other stuff I can't remember. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber MacPherson | 1/5/2014

    " One of my favorite Star Wars books. This one is set immediately following the Return of the Jedi. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kevin | 1/4/2014

    " first grown up book i ever read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 1/3/2014

    " I really like it, Luke Skywalker continues battling temptation to the Dark Side and wins. Luke also helps a mentally scarred boy turn to the Light, it's a thrilling book. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 12/31/2013

    " This is one of the few Star Wars novels I really enjoyed. I think it may have been the first one I read. I still remember the reptilian alien race, the Ssi-ruuk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wesley | 12/23/2013

    " Odd bad guys, but not a worthless book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 11/29/2013

    " This book is a total nerd moment. It picks up, literally, five minutes after RoTJ ends. This is the first step into the Expanded Universe! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Bello | 11/14/2013

    " A beautifully written story for all ages; very entertaining, at least to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miguel Galy | 9/19/2013

    " Story of what happens right after Darrh Vaders death.... Easy read and not too technical . I can almost see this as a movie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 5/7/2013

    " Worth reading if you don't have something else you really want to read. It's nice to see what some authors could come up with for Han, Leia, and Luke to do once they destroyed the second Death Star. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Richard | 3/2/2013

    " I didn't actually read this one. I think I got about 3 pages in, and found it to be so poorly written that I took it to a used bookstore immediately. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrew Wright | 1/2/2013

    " I think there are aliens that put people into spaceships? Star Wars novels... so far off the point... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 9/28/2012

    " This a creepy book. The thought -- the very idea -- of entechment is pretty freaky. However, it is made tolerable by the fact that things turn out well. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/4/2012

    " It was too awful to even finish. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gabrielle Lawrence | 5/10/2012

    " Oh boy... This (for me) was unreadable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marc Geffen | 4/8/2012

    " Picks up after the destruction of the second Death Star in Return of the Jedi. A well told story, the usual cast of enjoyable characters and overall a fun, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 12/14/2011

    " I liked this better than the Thrawn Trilogy. So? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 9/19/2011

    " Kind of silly and predictable. I can see why I enjoyed it when I was in middle school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Primula Brandybuck | 6/26/2011

    " An easy, breezy read. As my first (completed) Star Wars novel, it's great to see all the characters moving forward in time; and that Luke is still having human struggles (of making the right choices etc), even if he is a Jedi. Very fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 2/3/2011

    " read it a looooooong time ago
    remember it being pretty good
    'happens' right after the movie Return of the Jedi "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 11/26/2010

    " I read this back in 93 but just listened to Anthony Heald doing his usual man of a thousand voices quick fire delivery on the audio version. Shame these are abridged but it sort of brings the nostalgic cheesiness back even if it is just for three hours. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marc | 8/31/2010

    " Picks up after the destruction of the second Death Star in Return of the Jedi. A well told story, the usual cast of enjoyable characters and overall a fun, quick read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mathias | 8/13/2010

    " This is gotta be the worst Star Wars novel I've ever read. First, the author constantly reminds us of the movies and less about building on the Lucas's universe. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/15/2010

    " This wasn't my favorite book of the Star Wars: EU (hello... Thrawn trilogy!) but it is an essential if reading any EU books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corey | 5/18/2010

    " This was the first Star Wars book I read! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wesley | 4/15/2010

    " Odd bad guys, but not a worthless book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 4/9/2010

    " This is one of the few Star Wars novels I really enjoyed. I think it may have been the first one I read. I still remember the reptilian alien race, the Ssi-ruuk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 3/16/2010

    " I like how this takes place right after the events in Return of the Jedi "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marietta | 11/11/2009

    " This is, hands down, the worst book in the EU. Forget about killing off Chewie or totally improbably enemies (or weapons) this has got to be the stupidest book in the history of SW. Except maybe the one that went between IV and V. That one was just weird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 10/22/2009

    " Decent post- Return of the Jedi story of the new government trying to broker a peace with one of the remaining Empire outposts.
    Nice mix of politics and adventure and the Empire guys were written with some personality, rather than just being 'bad guys'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 9/29/2009

    " This was a fun read. I am a huge Star Wars fan, but have never really liked the books. I wouldn't say great writing. The author pulled characteristics from the movie and a few one liners. But all in all, it was enjoyable to read once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob | 8/24/2009

    " A beautifully written story for all ages; very entertaining, at least to me. "
