Lumiya, a dark Jedi Master trained by Darth Vader, and High Admiral Gorden, one of the empire's greatest commanders have joined forces and have constructed a new super weapon called the planetbuster, which can change a planet's gravitational pull allowing it to simulate natural disasters across entire planets. With the planetbuster complete they are now giving their final instructions to their forces in preparation for their final campaign, the destruction of the New Republic.
While the empire is preparing to deliver a deadly blow, the New Republic is trying to figure out what it can do to stop the empire after their fleet was crippled in an attack on the planetbuster. Admiral Ackbar and Generals Han Solo and Lando Calrissian are now discussing a plan to gather a solid strike force capable of defeating the massive imperial fleet.
Luke and Leia must face their biggest fears in confronting the dark Jedi Lumiya, who has already defeated Luke in one-on-one combat, and Leia's former student, Rashma, who is now staking his claim as the new Dark Lord of the Sith.
The sequel to Return from the Shadows and Dark Horizons.
