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.
