Wuul tells Luke that the owners of GET, Columi brothers Marvid and Craitheus Qreph, are operating in the Chiloon Rift as criminal masterminds, a fact known unofficially.
And when the murderous duo gets the drop on Han, he finds himself outgunned in the fight of his life.
To save him, and the galaxy, Luke and Leia must brave a gauntlet of treachery, terrorism, and the untold power of an enigmatic artifact capable of bending space, time, and even the Force itself into an apocalyptic nightmare.
When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes--and far deadlier consequences.
Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination. It is a pair of ruthless geniuses with a lethal ally and a lifelong vendetta against Han Solo.
"Denning says he's doing a novel about a year after Apocalypse ends.
It stars the Big Three, and starts in a cantina, "and yes, Han shoots first." It'll be set in a new part of the galaxy, that's new to readers.
After Luke departs to the Rift with this knowledge, Wuul is killed thanks to the Qrephs' machinations.
In the Chiloon Rift, the Qreph brothers are trying to buy Lando Calrissian's asteroid refinery, but Lando, aware of the Qrephs' reputation, stalls from even agreeing to give his refinery away, especially after Han and Leia inform him of the incident in the Red Ronto.
He manages to steal one of Qizak's arms as he flees with Leia and Kaeg from the other two Nargons for investigation (it turns out that the Nargons are genetically engineered by GET).
