Beware the Power of the Dark Side! by Tom Angleberger - ESSENTIAL

Angleberger, Tom Beware the Power of the Dark Side! (Return of the Jedi), 412 pages.  Disney, 2015.  $18.

The Empire almost has a new Death Star ready to tear new planets asunder.  Unless the Rebels can make a stand at Endor and take down the Empire’s protective shields, all hope be lost for the Rebellion.  Luke, meanwhile is grappling with his new knowledge the Leia is his twin sister and that Darth Vader is his father.  He will need to cling to the Light side of the Force in order to confront his greatest demons and save his friends.
Angleberger does a great job of novelizing the iconic movie.  

There is nothing new here in terms of information or point of view, but the story is as good in print as it is on a major screen.
