At the start of The Empire Strikes Back, when Luke Skywalker became lost in the icy wastes of the planet Hoth, what would have happened if Han's rescue mission had failed and Luke had perished in the snow?
Now you can find out, as a bemused Han prepares to follow Luke's final wish - to travel to the planet Dagobah, and train as a Jedi with the mysterious Yoda...

The Infinities range of Star Wars books may be in its infancy, but it is certainly a range that could run and run for years. The idea is simple. Take one pivotal moment in the Star Wars universe, and follow a different path.

For The Empire Strikes Back, the writers have Han finding Luke a little too late setting off a chain of events that see Han, Leia and the droids setting off to Dagobah so that Han can train to become a Jedi. But when Yoda decides to train Leia instead Han gets all stroppy. The events also spill over into the plot for Return of the Jedi.

The artwork for this collection is, on the whole, very impressive - although on more than one occasion Darth Vader's mask doesn't look quite right.

Sadly, everything is over far too quickly... I could have read this for hours. A very engaging story. A must for Star Wars fans.
