Happy May the 4th Suvudians!
To celebrate this worldwide holiday of all things STAR WARS (head over to the official Star Wars website for a full rundown of details), please enjoy the first chapter of STAR WARS: CRUCIBLE, by Troy Denning.
CRUCIBLE takes off right after FATE OF THE JEDI: APOCALYPSE, the thrilling conclusion to the FATE OF THE JEDI series, and also penned by Troy.
Here’s the jist:
“When Han and Leia Solo arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover, their aim is just to even up the odds and lay down the law. Then monstrous aliens arrive with a message, and mere threats escalate into violent sabotage with mass fatalities. When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes—and far deadlier consequences.
Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination. Only this time, the Empire is not the enemy. It is a pair of ruthless geniuses with a lethal ally and a lifelong vendetta against Han Solo. And when the murderous duo gets the drop on Han, he finds himself outgunned in the fight of his life. To save him, and the galaxy, Luke and Leia must brave a gauntlet of treachery, terrorism, and the untold power of an enigmatic artifact capable of bending space, time, and even the Force itself into an apocalyptic nightmare.”

May the 4th be with you!
