Book IV, Part II

It is a period of renewed hope for the Rebellion. After surviving another dangerous encounter with Darth Vader, rebel heroes Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo have taken the evil Sith Lord’s secret ally, droid and weapon specialist Dr. Aphra, captive.

Teaming with smuggler Sana Starros, Princess Leia hands Aphra to the best-concealed penitentiary she knows: Sunspot Prison. There, Aphra is expected to be imprisoned indefinitely, lest the Empire uncover her location and reclaim her.

Elsewhere, Han and Luke are busy replenishing supplies for the Alliance, that is until Han gambles and loses the rebel funds. Meanwhile, a security breach back at Sunspot Prison bodes ill for the rebels….
