A Book That You'll Want To Read If You're A Star Wars Fan, 5 Mar. 2006
Finally, someone had the brains to bridge the gap between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Shadows of the Empire tells of the struggle of Lando, Luke, Chewie, Leia and the droids to rescue Han Solo.
The powerful leader of the Black Sun, Prince Xizor, is trying to kick Vader out of power in order to be more powerful in the Empire. While Vader fights him and the Rebels, our heroes make several attemps to rescue Han, but fail. A new good guy, hot-headed Dash, also appears, much to Luke's annoyance. Prince Xizor also poses a problem as he almost seduces Leia... but I won't give that away.
It's a good book and I recommend it for any Star Wars fan.
