SYNOPSIS
Bold, imaginative and packed with excitement STAR WARS is destined to become a classic in the genre. This is the novel that brings that "sense of wonder" back to science fiction—each page brimming with heroic adventure, unexpected marvels and amazing characters like...

Luke Skywalker, a young farmboy on the remote, sun-baked world of Tatooine, who is compelled to break from the dull chores on his uncle's ranch. When he intercepts a cryptic message from a kidnapped princess, Luke embarks on the most dangerous mission of his life, enlisting aid from...

Ben Kenobi, a shabby old desert rat who, before the rise of the sinister Galactic Empire, was one of the greatest warriors in the old Republic. It is Ben who gives Luke a legendary laser saber and interprets the secret code words of...

Princess Leia Organa, the very young Senator from the rebel planet Alderaan. The strong-willed, beautiful woman now has the necessary information to destroy the Empire, but has fallen into the hands of the galaxy's most evil genius...

Darth Vader, an awesome, malevolent figure who commands the Death Star, a planet-sized space fortress that can destroy an entire solar system in mere hours. Vader plans to annihilate the secret rebel outpost after torturing its location out of the Princess. But...

Chewbacca the Pirate and his human companion Han Solo have other ideas. Along with Luke, Ben, and a pair of devoted robots, they plan a near suicidal assault on the Death Star to rescue Leia and free the universe from tyranny and oppression.

What follows is perhaps the most thrilling and suspenseful science fiction adventure story in recent years...a book that imaginative readers will find impossible to put down.
