When Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia travel to Jabim recruiting allies for the fledgling rebellion, they unwittingly set into motion events that will ignite one man's betrayal of his people, pit rebel hero, and attract the attention of the Empire's deadliest enforcer - Darth Vader. Luke confronts the legacy of the Jedi father he never knew in an epic tale that determines the fate of an entire planet, and sheds new light on Anakin Skywalker's actions at the Battle of Jabiim during the Clone Wars...

In the Shadows of Their Fathers is the sixth volume in the Star Wars: Empire series and contains stories that were originally printed in issues 29-32 of Dark Horse's Star Wars: Empire comic books.

21 years before the Battle of Yavin, Anakin Skywalker betrayed the people of Jabiim and their leader, Gillmun, leaving them to the Separatist army. Now, a year after the first Death Star's destruction, only a decimated resistance led by Gillmun's son remains to fight the Separatists - and Luke Skywalker has come to persuade them to join the Rebellion. But will they visit the sins of the father upon the son?

The three tales in this collection build on the Star Wars franchise - helping to flesh out further details from the movies. While I found this collection a little on the dry side, there is still plenty to keep Star Wars fans glued to the pages.

Whether you are a die-hard Star Wars fan (of all formats); a fan of the movie series only, or even if you only like the original trilogy of movies, this collection will contain plenty to keep you entertained.
