Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian return in this essential novel set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

The Empire is dead. Nearly two decades after the Battle of Endor, the tattered remnants of Palpatine’s forces have fled to the farthest reaches of the galaxy. But for the heroes of the New Republic, danger and loss are ever-present companions, even in this newly forged era of peace.

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker is haunted by visions of the dark side, foretelling an ominous secret growing somewhere in the depths of space, on a dead world called Exegol. The disturbance in the Force is undeniable . . . and Luke’s worst fears are confirmed when his old friend Lando Calrissian comes to him with reports of a new Sith menace.

After Lando’s daughter was stolen from his arms, he searched the stars for any trace of his lost child. But every new rumor leads only to dead ends and fading hopes—until he crosses paths with Ochi of Bestoon, a Sith assassin tasked with kidnapping a young girl.

Ochi’s true motives remain shrouded to Luke and Lando. For on a junkyard moon, a mysterious envoy of the Sith Eternal has bequeathed a sacred blade to the assassin, promising that it will answer the questions that have haunted him since the Empire fell. In exchange, he must complete a final mission: Return to Exegol with the key to the Sith’s glorious rebirth—Rey, the granddaughter of Darth Sidious himself.

As Ochi hunts Rey and her parents to the edge of the galaxy, Luke and Lando race into the mystery of the Sith’s lingering shadow and aid a young family running for their lives.

Another amazing SW Novel

I loved this novel, it’s great hearing from Luke again post-Return and pre-Last Jedi. It was really great hearing a Lando/Luke adventure, and nice having Lando get some character development. I gave this a 4 star review and not a 5 only because some of the music choices in certain scenes didn’t seem to match up with what was happening. I also noticed some reviews were talking about not enjoying the narrator but I didn’t find a single thing wrong with him.

Ok story

Narrator was decent. I think I would have liked the story better if it was narrated by Marc Thompson.

This is trash

Extremely Disappointed with this book. The story was lame, and the main antagonist even worse. I miss the old republic stories. Disney hasn’t made a good book yet!
