Galaxy of Fear (Young Reader Novels)
Star Wars Saga Timeline:
A survey team crash-lands on an unknown planet. The planet is dark, and its fetid swamps are filled with flesh-eating flowers, fearsome swamp slugs, and deadly dragonsnakes. No one hears the survey team's distress signals. They are stranded.
Thirty years later, Zak and Tash Arranda and their uncle Hoole, with Boba Fett in hot pursuit, land on the planet. Descendants of the survey team — half-starved and crazed with strange fevers — are still alive. They call themselves the Children, and how they have survived is a mystery. Does the strange creature named Yoda have the answer?
Lord Vader summons Boba Fett to theExecutorand puts him on the Arranda's trail. They are already being hunted by nearly every bounty hunter in the galaxy. After a near miss at Nar Shaddaa, the trio rushes to Koaan to find a planet no Imperial has been to. Boba Fett has already snuck in to the 'Shroud' and attacks them. They jump out in a lifepod. Once at the Galactic Research Academy, no sooner do they find a suitable world - Dagobah - then Platt Okeefe and her gang barges in, fighting stormtroopers, and drags them along to the same world, Fett hot on their trail.
They land to find an abandoned settlement, the result of the first failed expedition to Dagobah. They find several starving humans, who claim to be the original explorers' children. Platt's ship begins sinking into the swamp, so they are stuck for the time being. Moreover, one by one, Platt's men start being eaten by.... something....
