The second Death Star has been destroyed, the Emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down. All major victories for the Rebel Alliance. But the battle for freedom is far from over.
Determined to preserve the Empire’s power after its defeat in the Battle of Endor, the surviving Imperial elite are converging for a secret summit to consolidate their forces and prepare for a counterstrike. Above the remote planet Akiva, as Star Destroyers gather like deadly birds of prey, rebel pilot Wedge Antilles finds himself the sole witness to the looming threat – only to be captured before he can alert the Alliance. Meanwhile, former rebel fighter Norra Wexley has returned to her home on Akiva, ready to leave the ravages of war behind. But when she intercepts Wedge’s urgent distress call, she knows she must help, no matter the cost. What she doesn’t know is how close the enemy is – or how dangerous her new mission will be. Together with her technical-genius son, a Zabrak bounty hunter, and an imperial defector, Norra prepares to take the fight to the resurgent Empire – and do whatever it takes to end its oppressive reign once and for all.
