Overthrowing the dark side's empire has made them heroes. But underestimating the fury of the Sith will make them targets.
All the classic heroes, all the explosive action and adventure, all the unparalleled excitement of Star Wars come breathlessly alive here, as the further adventures of Luke Skywalker continue.
Post destruction of the second Death Star, Luke and company find themselves in harms way and in the grasps of one of Palpatines old minions Cronal, know as Black hole and Shadowspawn (the evil image above with the black storm troopers). Majority of the adventure takes place on Mindor, in the Tespan System on verge of self destruction. Shadowspawn controlled the planet, its main component meltmassif, a black crystal like rock that could be formed into shapes, liquids, and people at the controllers (Cronal) command. Cronal was more intune with Sith Alchemy and Spells, and controlled what is referred to as Darksight, and believed he was in control of the Sith. His only mission from Emporer Palpatine, bring the rightful heir to the Empires Thrown. Luke Skywalker. No matter where Luke goes, somebody wants to turn him to the dark side!
Kar was controlled primarily by Cronal thru this novel and was one of Luke's major hurtles. Nick Rostu was a prisoner of Cronal and is thought to be the image on the back of the novel's image, controlled thru one of Cronal's half moon black helmets.
Kar had told Luke that he was the greatest Jedi, ever greater than the "Jedi of the Old"
"Luke Skywalker......you are not affriad of the Dark"
Embrace the Darkside!
