Star Wars Return of the Jedi Author:James Kahn A sinking feeling dragged at See-Threepio's breast as he watched the scene before him. Across the expanse of the giant room, the dregs of the criminal universe caroused and brawled. And presiding over them was the vilest gangster of all, the evil Jabba the Hutt, the one who had hired the steel-masked mercenary Boba Fett to bring the carconized... more » body of Han Solo to him. High above the room Jabba sat. He had no hair and no legs; his body simply tapered to a fat python-like tail that could swipe a man off his feet and crush him with a single blow.
A chain hung from his body--ending, Threepio could see, in a metal collar...around the neck of the beautiful Princess Leia. She had succeeded in reviving Han Solo, but her attempt to rescue him had failed! Now she stood linked to the grotesque Jabba, helpless. and somewhere in Jabba's dungeons were locked the Wookiee Chewbacca and Han Solo. What could a mere diplomat droid do?
Outside, Luke Skywalker waited patiently as the massive gate to Jabba's stronghold rose with a rumble. He worse a simple cassock, similar to that worn once by the revered Obi-Wan Kenobi. He wore neither gun nor lightsaber as he strode into the fortress, and needed none. For he was no longer a mere boy. He was a Jedi Knight, and The Force was the only protection he needed.
Join Luke and his friends as they head toward an ultimate confrontation with their dread enemy Darth Vader and the Empire itself in this action-packed and breathtaking new "Star Wars" adventure, complete with the eight pages of color stills from the blockbuster motion picture, "Return of the Jedi."« less
