With the New Alliance firmly established, Princess Leia Organa has taken a strong leading role in government. But even then, safety and security are not assured. As Luke Skywalker and Han Solo take advantage of the stability of the new order to follow rumours of a lost enclave of Jedi Knights, Leia and Han's children are kidnapped! In disguise, Leia and Chewbacca follow a trail of clues to find the children. Their search leads them to a far-flung star system with a fantastic crystal sun at its centre. Little did they expect, however, to find Han and Luke already there. Nor could they have anticipated the presence of Hethrir, a former member of Imperial hierarchy, or of Waru, an alien being with powers more miraculous than any Jedi Knight they'd ever encountered.
As the crystal star spreads its strange quantum effects, influencing the very fabric of space itself, Luke, Han and Leia must uncover the secrets behind Hethrir's peculiar colony in order to find the children and get out of the system - before it's too late.

This story occurs approximately 14 years after the Battle of Yavin.
