Synopsis:
Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and the Rebel Alliance have fought valiantly against the evil Galactic Empire. Together they have kept alive the hopes for freedom, and helped restore the ways of the Old Republic with its wise Senate and noble line of Jedi Knights. But now a new threat awaits the Alliance.
Within the evil Empire, the surviving Imperial warlords have been fighting among themselves for power. No one knows who will seize control, but the Prophets of the Dark Side have foretold that soon a new Emperor will arise, and on his right hand he shall wear an indestructible symbol of evil.


Chronology:
This story occurs approximately 5 years after the Battle of Yavin.

Review by Bones, UK, 2010:

"The Glove of Darth Vader is the first in a series of six books by Paul and Hollace Davids that are collectively known as the Jedi Prince series.
"There is very little to recommend this book. Granted, it was written when the Expanded Universe had barely started to be formed, but then so was the Thrawn Trilogy, which is vastly superior. Granted, it is a children's book, and therefore one should expect simplicity of language and plot. In spite of that, there are still many things that count against this book. A few examples:

1) Admiral Ackbar explaining how less Whaladons and more plankton will destroy the entire planet.
2) One of the Grand Moffs wears earrings shaped like blaster pistols...
3) The insinuation that it was not Darth Vader who throttled people with the power of the Force, it was, in fact, his glove that held the power.
4) I clearly remember Yoda saying that a Jedi never uses the Force for attack. Here, however, it is apparently a Jedi rule of thumb to attack when confronted with overwhelming odds.
5) Every single noise that Artoo makes is positively cringeworthy - why? Because they write it out phonetically!
6) The Emperor's son has three eyes...really.

"There are many more examples of just how silly this book is. I only read it out of a sense of morbid curiosity - and that is the only reason why anyone should ever read it."

Rating: 0.5 / 5
