Book II, Part II

It is a period of renewed hope for the Rebellion. The evil Galactic Empire’s greatest weapon, the Death Star, has been destroyed by the young rebel pilot Luke Skywalker.

But Skywalker’s quest to learn the ways of the Jedi continues. That quest has brought him to the notorious Smuggler’s Moon of Nar Shaddaa, where his lightsaber has made him a target for a particularly crafty pickpocket.

Meanwhile, Princess Leia and Han Solo have encountered some surprises of their own. While searching the galaxy for a suitable site for the new Rebel base, they ran afoul of Imperial patrol ships. Now hiding out on a remote planet, they find themselves facing a far more shocking encounter.

Her name is Sana Solo. And she claims to be Han Solo’s wife.

And she seems very interested in collecting the bounty on the rebel princess’s head….
