Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shadows of the Empire illuminates the shadowy outlines of a criminal conspiracy that exists in the background of the events in the movies, ruled by a character new to us. Prince Xizor is a mastermind of evil who dares to oppose one of the best-known fictional villains of all time: Darth Vader. The story involves all the featured Star Wars movie characters, plus Emperor Palpatine and, of course, Lord Vader himself.

Review:

"Perry is the first novelist authorized by George Lucas to reveal what happened to the familiar Star Wars characters between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Highly recommended for fans of the series." Library Journal

Review:

"Perry handles the multitudinous details of the increasingly complex Star Wars universe as competently as he deals with characters and pacing. A solid rather than an outstanding effort in the reliably popular SW canon." Booklist

Synopsis:

Here is the untold story of the events that took place between the movies The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. It is a novel in which Darth Vader still lives--and battles a villain as powerful and evil as himself. Online promo.

Islemaster, April 28, 2009 (view all comments by Islemaster)
This is one of the books that helped the Star Wars Expanded Universe get on its feet. It is a compelling read, and will be interesting to people who just enjoyed the movies. Shadows of the Empire takes place concurrent with The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and gives us a look at what the famous characters were doing when they were not on screen. Recommended for any Star Wars fan!
