In the blockbuster tradition of HEIR TO THE EMPIRE comes this
thrilling addition to the STAR WARS saga, as peace gives way to a
dire new threat...
BEFORE THE STORM
It is a time of tranquillity for the New Republic. The
remnants of the Empire now lie in complete disarray, and the
reemergence of the Jedi Knights has brought power and prestige to
the fledgling government on Coruscant. Yesterday's Rebels have
become today's administrators and diplomats, and the factions
that fought against Imperial tyranny seem united in savoring the
fruits of peace.
But the peace is short-lived. A restless Luke must journey to
his mother's homeworld in a desperate and dangerous quest to find
her people. An adventurous Lando must seize a mysterious
spacecraft that has weapons of enormous detructive power and an
unknown mission. And Leia, a living symbol of the New Republic's
triumph, must face down the ruthless leader of the Duskhan
League, an arrogant Yevetha who seems bent on a genocidal war
that could shatter the fragile unity of the New Republic...and
threaten its very survival.
