Publisher's Summary

After Darth Vader's narrow escape from the destruction of the Death Star, the Dark Lord is consumed with a desire to find the Force-strong young pilot who fired the fatal shot. For Luke Skywalker represents the heart and soul of the Alliance, and perhaps, for Vader, he represents much, much more. The book's first printing features a foil-stamped logo and special bonus fold-out poster by Gibbons and Angus McKie.

Plot summary

The plot is based on Darth Vader's hunt for Luke Skywalker. The hunt leads him on to a rebel-hating planet whose king is having peace talks with Commander Luke Skywalker. But in the end, Skywalker escapes the planet, and Vader takes his anger out on the king, who dies of intense torture. Luke and some natives, who are against the Empire, remove the planet from the Empire's control.

Behind the scenes

Croatian writer Darko Macan named many characters and planets in the series using words from his native Croatian language. For example bounty hunter Mala Mala, planet Dubrava, princess Syayna, rebel pilot Jal Te Gniev, etc. Their meaning is similar in most of the Slavic languages such as Bulgarian, Serbian, etc.
