Sinopse"NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER " A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. . . ." A thrilling new adventure set between "A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back, "and--for the first time ever--written entirely from Luke Skywalker´s first-person point of view. Luke Skywalker´s game-changing destruction of the Death Star has made him not only a hero of the Rebel Alliance but a valuable asset in the ongoing battle against the Empire. Though he´s a long way from mastering the power of the Force, there´s no denying his phenomenal skills as a pilot--and in the eyes of Rebel leaders Princess Leia Organa and Admiral Ackbar, there´s no one better qualified to carry out a daring rescue mission crucial to the Alliance cause. A brilliant alien cryptographer renowned for her ability to breach even the most advanced communications systems is being detained by Imperial agents determined to exploit her exceptional talents for the Empire´s purposes. But the prospective spy´s sympathies lie with the Rebels, and she´s willing to join their effort in exchange for being reunited with her family. It´s an opportunity to gain a critical edge against the Empire that´s too precious to pass up. It´s also a job that demands the element of surprise. So Luke and the ever-resourceful droid R2-D2 swap their trusty X-wing fighter for a sleek space yacht piloted by brash recruit Nakari Kelen, daughter of a biotech mogul, who´s got a score of her own to settle with the Empire. Challenged by ruthless Imperial bodyguards, death-dealing enemy battleships, merciless bounty hunters, and monstrous brain-eating parasites, Luke plunges head-on into a high-stakes espionage operation that will push his abilities as a Rebel fighter and would-be Jedi to the limit. If ever he needed the wisdom of Obi-Wan Kenobi to shepherd him through danger, it´s now. But Luke will have to rely on himself, his friends, and his own burgeoning relationship with the Force to survive. Praise for "Heir to the Jedi" " " "Utterly compelling . . . [The novel] plants readers in Luke Skywalker´s boots in the early days of his heroism, during the weeks after he blew up the Death Star."--New York "Daily News" "An excellent book with rich characters, bubbling humor and poignant emotion.""--Roqoo Depot" " " "Entertaining . . . action-packed . . . suspenseful.""--New York Journal of Books" " " "Great . . . [an] entertaining introduction into understanding Luke´s character . . . There are moments in "The Empire Strikes Back" that I now point to and say, ´I understand how he got there, ´ and it´s because of this novel."--The Wookiee Gunner "Pure "Star Wars ." . . From shoot-outs to narrow escapes, I could practically hear John Williams´s score playing in my head--a credit to Kevin Hearne, to be sure."--Coffee with Kenobi "A must-read for fans . . . I left with a much closer understanding of who Luke Skywalker is, and an even deeper admiration for the character. All things are connected in the Force, and I feel more connected to Luke after reading "Heir to the Jedi."
