At first glance, Coruscant and Kashyyyk couldn't be more
different: one is a metropolis-covered world of
technology while the other is the verdant Wookiee
homeworld enveloped by immense rain forests. But the two
share a dangerous similarity: the further into the
shadows one descends, the greater the danger.
That's what Lumpawarrump, Chewbacca's son, discovers,
the young Wookiee has grown up hearing tales of his
father's heroics, but he hasn't heard them from
Chewbacca. Chewie's life debt to Han Solo keeps him
constantly on the move and away from home. Without the
steadying influence of his father, Lumpy is running
wild. His mother, Mallotobuck, decides that a visit to
Coruscant is in order. It's the perfect opportunity for
father and son to bond again -- and for Lumpy to learn
that, even for a great hero like Chewbacca, there is
more to life than adventure.
But when Lumpy interrupts a burglar in the Solos'
apartment, adventure is all he can think about. Eager to
make his father proud, Lumpy disobeys his parents and
pursues the escaping criminal into Coruscant's dangerous
underlevels . . . only to stumble upon a secret as
shocking as it is deadly.
