Publisher's summary[]

Danger stalks the Rebels in the form of the massive World Devastators, dark side machines that destroy everything in their path. Their current target is the planet Calimari, [sic] which will be destroyed unless Lando Calrissian and the Rebel forces can reach it in time. Meanwhile, Luke meets the face behind the Force storm, a familiar face, while Leia feels Luke being torn away…

Plot summary[]

In a time of increasing chaos in the Galaxy,
divided Imperial forces contend ferociously
for control of the Empire.

The Rebel Alliance is quick to take advantage of
the upheaval, spreading the cry of rebellion far and
wide — and inflicting stinging blows against the
feuding Imperials.

At the height of the growing anarchy, a captured Star
Destroyer piloted by Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian and
Wedge Antilles is shot down over the Imperial City.

In an attempt to rescue their fallen comrades, Princess Leia and
Han Solo, together with the Wookiee Chewbacca and protocol droid
C-3PO, fly the Millennium Falcon into the heart of the conflagration.

But Skywalker, now a Jedi of the highest order, refuses to be saved.
Instead he chooses to face a mysterious energy storm that sweeps him,
along with R2-D2, toward certain destruction.

Meanwhile, at a secret rebel base, Alliance leader Mon Mothma receives
disturbing information: a Dark Side power has emerged from hiding, reunifying
the feuding Imperials and gathering the technological might of the Empire for a
major assault on the worlds of the Rebellion.


The events of Devastator of Worlds were adapted in the Dark Empire (audio) radio drama, which featured the music of John Williams' score from the films, as well as a voice cast that included Billy Dee Williams reprising his role as Lando Calrissian.
