Four compelling tales, each told from the point of view of the major villains of the
Star Wars galaxy - the Imperials. But, as these stories demonstrate, even the bad guys are no strangers to loyalty, honour and sacrifice...

The Imperial Perspective is another collection of interesting tales from the Star Wars universe. My two favourite stories were The Savage Heart and Target: Vader.

The Savage Heart follows on from the events that unfolded in Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Darth Vader, his ship not functioning on all cylinders, sets down on an alien planet. Can he survive against the savage alien creatures that are indigenous to this barren land? Well... yes, of course. We know he survives because he appeared in The Empire Strikes Back. That doesn't detract though from what is an engaging plot.

Target: Vader, sees Darth Vader making an unexpected visit to a band of low life pirates. It's a visit that they are not expecting, and not prepared for. Why is Vader here and what will he do if they don't provide him with what he wants?

The art work in all of the stories is above average, as is the script. Star Wars fans who want a little more Imperial action will be in their element.
