Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi (Kevin Hearne)
The Galactic Civil War rages on after the destruction of the Death Star and Luke Skywalker struggles to learn more about the Force without the aid of Obi-Wan Kenobi-or indeed without any aid at all. But the few memories he has of Obi-Wan's instruction point the way to a stronger control of the Force, and he is encouraged to pursue it by a new friend in the Alliance. When Luke, R2-D2 and his new ally are tasked with liberating a valuable asset from the Empire and delivering her to a safe planet where she can aid the Alliance, their journey across the galaxy is fraught with peril-and opportunities for Luke to discover the mysteries of the Force.
Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi is a an action-packed stand-alone novel in which Luke Skywalker explores his burgeoning abilities with the Force. It is set in the Rebellion era between the events of Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
