Publisher's summary[]

When the High-hounds attack, a mythical monster is summoned that may mean the end for a village as well as Han and Chewie!

Plot summary[]

Han Solo, Chewbacca, and the Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3 arrive at Ramiz's village Onacra, only to find it under attack by flying High-hounds. They repel the beasts, saving the life of a young girl named Merri, who is the daughter of Oncho, the village spokesman. Their relief is short-lived as Serji-X Arrogantus and his Cloud-Riders attack. The Star-Hoppers valiantly defend the village from the attack, but not without cost, as FE-9Q is destroyed in the fray. However, Merri's grandfather the Old One, a shaman, dismisses the hired spacers' help and summons a large, mythical reptilian monster called the Behemoth from the World Below to handle the invading Cloud-Riders.

Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker informs Leia Organa that he has found a new location for the Rebel Alliance base in the Drexel system. The transmission suddenly ends, and a worried Leia sets out to find Luke.
