Barbara Hambly’s Planet of Twilight features a rocking cover by film poster extraordinaire Drew Struzan that is primarily awesome due to Leia’s wielding a lightsaber on it.
Is it weird that I’m starting out by talking about the cover? Yes. It’s mostly because thinking of how to explain this novel is basically me standing at the foot of a monstrous, craggy mountain with no climbing gear at my disposal—there is no way to do it in a safe, expedient manner. There are bugs. And sentient crystals. The end of Callista by and large. And a former Hutt Jedi? Don’t ask.
But you’re here. So you are effectively asking.
