A Synopsis of Heir to the Empire

Five years after the action of Return of the Jedi a new adventure unfolds. Luke, Han, Leia, and Lando are back in a high stakes battle between the Empire and the New Republic.

My opinion of Heir to the Empire

This was my first time reading a Star Wars book. I’ve seen the movies over the years but I wouldn’t consider myself a diehard fan. My cousin, God rest his soul, was an avid fan and a collector. He had a plan to read every single Star Wars novel, novella, and see every movie and show. I decided I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, so I picked up this classic.

My recommendation and rating of Heir to the Empire


I recommend this book to any Star Wars fan. Also, any action, thriller, or sci-fi fan. It’s a great story that keeps the tension going and continues this great series.
