Star Wars: Shadow War
The year is 18 IR, eighteen years after the death of the Galactic Republic and birth of the Galactic Empire. The Corellian Treaty has just been signed in secret, giving birth to the the fledgling Rebel Alliance and the start of the Galactic Civil War. In two years time, the Death Star will be destroyed at the Battle of Yavin and the Rebellion will become more than a nuisance to Emperor Palpatine. While Bail Organa, Mon Mothma, and Garm Bel Iblis secretly scheme against the Empire, to the galaxy at large there appears to be no escape from Imperial rule.
The Jedi Order is extinct and nearly forgotten by the galaxy at large. Kashyyyk, homeworld of the wookiees, is enslaved. The Mon Calamari are forced into hard labor on their own homeworld. Caamas and its peaceful inhabitants have been all but wiped from existence by the Imperial Navy. Fear and death lies everywhere.
While it is Luke Skywalker’s destiny to turn his father back to the Light Side of the Force, allowing him to restore balance to the Force, there is much in motion and plots within plots in the galaxy. Within the shadows of the Galactic Civil War, cartels and crime lords vie for Imperial scraps and corrupt governments prey on the weak and innocent.
Dark forces lurk everywhere in the galaxy and the shadows are alive with malice.
