Book Description

9 May 2008
After The Empire Strikes Back and before The Return of the Jedi, there was a time when heroes and villains alike lived in the shadows of the Empire. As Princess Leia tries to foil Boba Fett's plan to deliver the carbonite-encased Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt, so Darth Vader scours the galaxy for his son, Luke Skywalker. Meanwhile, the sinister figure of Xizor looms, bent on replacing Vader as the Emperor's right hand. Luke finds himself the prize in a power struggle between the two most evil entities in the galaxy -- one who wants him alive and one who wants him dead!

All right, Star Wars fans! You waited for the story of what REALLY happened between the Movies (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi) and now you got it! Wondering "How did Luke all of a sudden become a Jedi Knight in Return of the Jedi?"? Or maybe "When did the second Death Star start?"? Well, here it is! And if you liked the game... You'll LOVE the book! Han Solo is frozen in Carbonite... Luke Skywalker is becoming a Jedi... And the Empire has the alliance in their grasp! What will happen? The suspense is endless. The battles in this book go into so much detail, you'd swear you were actually there! Pick it up... YOU WON'T PUT IT DOWN! The best Star Wars book to date! Experience Shadows of the Empire!

5.0 out of 5 stars compliments the novel 22 Dec 2000
The graphic novel of the Shadows of the Empire doesn't follow the plot of the novel exactly, it often shows parallel events to what is happening in the novel, such as what Boba Fett was up to during this time period. Reading both is highly recommended. Shadows of the Empire is a bigger story than each volume that makes it. Its like putting a jigsaw together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding bridge between sagas 17 Sep 1997
By A Customer
I thought this was a wonderfully written book. I thought that the author did a great job of keeping the tone and the wording of the book in harmony with that of the other two books. I have read other books that are about Star Wars, and it didn't feel like the story flowed the way it should in the hands of these new authors. This couldn't be said for Steve Perry. If I hadn't seen his name at the beginning, I would have thought that George Lucas himself had written it. If you are a lover of the Star Wars movies or books then you should read this book. It answers a lot of questions you might have about some of the things that take place in Return of the Jedi.

This book deals with all that happens between "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi." One of the main charactures is Prince Xixor. He seems to be another of the Emperor's cronies. Like Darth Vader. Han Solo is frozen in carbonite. Leia and Luke are trying to find him and bring him back to "the land of the living." Anyone who enjoys watching the movies and reading the books should read this book without delay.

5.0 out of 5 stars It describes the story very well 26 Dec 1997
By A Customer
Before I read this book I had very small knowledge on the Shadows Of The Empire story. After reading this book I knew exactly what the story was, when the story was, and all that good stuff.
