Publisher's summaryEdit

Forty years after the Battle of Yavin a dangerous new era in the Star Wars epic begins–the revelations are shocking, the stakes desperate, and the enemy everywhere.

As civil war threatens the unity of the Galactic Alliance, Han and Leia Solo have enraged their families and the Jedi by joining the Corellian insurgents. But the Solos draw the line when they discover the Corellian's plot to make the Hapan Consortium an ally - which rests upon Hapan nobles murdering their pro-Alliance queen and her daughter.

Yet the Solos' selfless determination to save the queen cannot dispel the inescapable consequences of their actions that will pit mother against son and brother against sister in the battles ahead. For as Jacen Solo's dark powers grow stronger under Dark Lady Lumiya, and his influence over Ben Skywalker becomes more insidious, Luke's concern for his nephew forces him into a life-and-death struggle against his fiercest foe, and Han and Leia Solo find themselves at the mercy of their deadliest enemy. . . their son.

Insider 90 interviewEdit

In an interview in Star Wars Insider 90, Denning revealed the following:

  • It is to be told from the perspectives of Han and Leia.
  • "They...serve as each other's beacon through the moral confusion of the DN series. In LoTF...that's still how I write the Solos. The perfect married couple."
  • The two will "find themselves serving in the Corellian armed forces, pursued as assassins, caught in the middle of a terrifying space battle, and hunted as criminals by their own son - who's in charge of the GA's secret police."
  • Luke will battle Lumiya.
  • Jacen will be "[raised] to the stature of a mythic figure."
  • Jacen views Allana as "the one thing he will never sacrifice...his tragic flaw, the weakness that blinds him to reality of what he is doing and what he is becoming."
  • It will include "revelations about the Jedi and the Sith and...a startling reappearance or two. Reports of the death of one foe of the Jedi turn out to have been greatly exaggerated, and Han and Leia find themselves briefly in league with a sinister figure from long ago in the saga."
