The review of this Book prepared by anthony mccurry

This story, written after the Empire Strike Back but before Return of
the Jedi, tells of how Luke & Leia stop on a planet occupied
by the Imperials where they discover a powerful gem which
can increase one's ability to use the force. Unfortunately,
Darth Vader hears on the grapevine that they're there, and
comes to hunt them. There's also a minor romance between
Luke and Leia--this was before we knew they were brother
and sister, so it's unintentional incest.
