    For the handful of scattered Jedi, survival is imperative if the light side of the Force is to be protected and the galaxy somehow, someday reclaimed. Yet more important still is the well-being of the twin infants, Leia and Luke Skywalker, the children of Anakin and his doomed bride, Padme Amidala. Separated after Padme's death, they must be made safe at all costs, lest the hope they represent for the future be turned to horror by the new Sith regime, and the unspeakable power of the dark side.

    Mark says: "The Force Lives!"
    "Only for the hardcore Star Wars fan."
    Overall

    All of these tales set in the Star Wars universe follow the same format. They share the familiar sound effects, and the classic John Williams music. Yet these classic elements are not near enough to make up for the lack of story. This book is sold as Darth Vadar's journey after Episode III, yet Vadar is barely explored during the story, the narriative moving with a few Jedis on the run. At least the reader is decent. So unless you're a big fan of the Lucasverse save your bucks!
