Release date: June 28, 2022, available for pre-order now

Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian return in this must-see novel between Return of the Jedi and the force awakens.

The Empire is dead. Nearly two decades after the Battle of Endor, the tattered remnants of Palpatine’s forces have fled to the far reaches of the galaxy. But for the heroes of the New Republic, danger and loss are omnipresent companions, even in this newly forged era of peace.

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker is haunted by visions from the dark side, predicting a disturbing secret unfolding somewhere in the depths of space, about a dead world called Exegol. The disturbance in the Force is undeniable… and Luke’s worst fears are confirmed when his old friend, Lando Calrissian, comes to see him with reports of a new Sith threat.

After the robbery of his daughter with his arms, Lando searched the stars for the slightest trace of his lost child. But each new rumor only led to dead ends and waning hopes, until he crossed paths with Ochi of Bestoon, a Sith assassin tasked with kidnapping a young girl.

Ochi’s true motives remain hidden from Luke and Lando. For on a dump moon, a mysterious envoy from the Eternal Sith bequeathed a sacred blade to the assassin, promising that it will give him answers to the questions that haunt him since the fall of the Empire. In return, he must complete one final mission: return to Exegol with the key to the glorious rebirth of the Sith, Darth Sidious’ granddaughter himself, Rey.

As Ochi chases Rey and his parents to the far reaches of the galaxy, Luke and Lando embark on the mystery of the lingering shadow of the Sith and help a young family run for their lives.
