Heir to the Jedi: Star Wars
After his role in the Battle of Yavin, Luke Skywalker has been doing his best to be useful for the Rebel Alliance. His current mission could be of great importance. The Alliance has discovered that a skilled cryptographer is being held by Imperial forces, who hope to use her abilities for their own purposes. But she is willing to assist the Alliance instead, on the condition that they free her and reunite her with her family. Luke takes on the mission with the assistance Nakari Kelen, a wealthy heiress with a score to settle. After securing the funds to outfit their ship with better weapons, Luke and Nakari head off to liberate the cryptographer. But the mission is fraught with danger from Imperials, bounty hunters, and spies, and Luke will need to rely on his friends and his own abilities, both as a pilot and with the Force, to succeed.
For readers who have wondered at the changes in Luke Skywalker between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, this novel is sure to fill in some of the void. Like all of the licensed Star Wars books, Heir to the Jedi is extremely well-written and stays true to the galaxy that George Lucas envisioned. This is a fantastic book that is over far too quickly.
