Star Wars: Heir To The Jedi
“Heir to the Jedi” was intended to be final installment in the “Empire and Rebellion” series, but is now a stand-alone book. The story takes place between Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.
Heir To The Jedi – Plot Summary
The destruction of the Death Star brought new hope to the beleaguered Rebel Alliance. But the relentless pursuit by Darth Vader and the Imperial fleet is taking its toll on Alliance resources. Now the rebels hide in an Outer Rim orbit from which
they can search for a more permanent base and for new allies to supply much-needed weapons and materiel.
Luke Skywalker, hero of the Battle of Yavin, has cast his lot with the rebels, lending his formidable piloting skills to whatever missions his leaders assign him. But he is haunted by his all-too-brief lessons with Obi-Wan Kenobi and the growing
certainty that mastery of the Force will be his path to victory over the Empire.
Adrift without Old Ben’s mentorship, determined to serve the Rebellion any way he can, Luke searches for ways to improve his skills in the Force…
