William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back

Get the once more to a galaxy far, far away with William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back!

Lo--many a fortnight hath passed since the destruction of the Death Star (as recounted in volume one--or IV--William Shakespeare's Verily A New Hope), and our young hero, Luke Skywalker, and his rebel friends have taken refuge on the ice planet of Hoth. But the vengeful Darth Vader is scouring the galaxy for them. It is only a matter of time before they are captured. But Luke has a plan! Guided by the spirit of his late teacher, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke and his faithful droid R2-D2 travel to Degobah to seek advice from the elusive, but wise Yoda. It is with this great Jedi master that Luke will complete his training and learn the skills he needs to rescue his friends and maybe even defeat Darth Vader. But the evil dark lord has a carefully-kept secret that, once revealed, could disarm (heh-heh) our young hero. What will happen? Will evil win? Or will good prevail? Methinks you shall have to read this book to find out!

The saga of the original Star Wars trilogy (the only good Star Wars movies worth watching), as told in the style of a Shakespeare play, continues with The Empire Striketh Back. Fans of the first book will be happy to know that this sequel is just as awesome as its predecessor. Read it...and get excited for the third and final volume, William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return, due out this summer! --AJB
