Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
LUKE SKYWALKER CHALLENGED THE STORMTROOPERS OF A DISTANT GALAXY ON A DARING MISSION – WHERE A FORCE OF LIFE BECAME THE POWER OF DEATH!

Farm chores sure could be dull, and Luke Skywalker was bored beyond belief. He yearned for adventures out among the stars – adventures that would take him beyond the furthest galaxies to distant and alien worlds.

But Luke got more than he bargained for when he intercepted a cryptic message from a beautiful princess held captive by a dark and powerful warlord. Luke didn’t know who she was, but he knew he had to save her-and soon, because time was running out.

Armed only with courage and with the light sabre that had been his father’s, Luke was catapulted into the middle of the most savage space-war ever... and he was headed straight for a desperate encounter on the enemy battle station known as the Death Star!

THE GREATEST SF MOVIE EVER FROM 20th CENTURY FOX
