3 ABY. Set after the Ewoks TV series (and it's accompanying comic books) but before the Ewoks live-action movies, this book tells the story of how the Ewoks and their old enemies the Duloks are forced to work together against a fearsome new threat on the Forest Moon of Endor; the forces of the Galactic Empire.
It's taken me many years to be able to freely and unashamedly admit it, but I love the Ewoks. I loved them in 'Return of the Jedi', I loved the live-action TV movies and I loved the cartoons. The problem has always been that the Ewoks cartoons and comics have been a little bit outside the accepted norm for the Expanded Universe, but this book finally ties together all the disparate threads of the furry little warriors' stories and links them into the larger Star Wars universe. Why are there no Duloks around in Episode VI? Why don't the Ewoks just make use of the super-powerful Sunstar against the Marauders? Which one is Paploo and which one is Teebo? All these questions are answered in this book. Among the highlights here are seeing Logray battle a Nightsister of Dathomir, Paploo's reaction to seeing a speeder bike (he's the one that joyrides it in 'Return of the Jedi'), Duloks vs Stormtroopers and a brilliant little epilogue in which Wicket find a strange woman laying unconscious in the forest.
Put simply, if you don't have fond feelings to the Ewoks and their adventures, this book is not for you. Enjoyment of it relies heavily on having seen the cartoon, the TV movies or read the comic books (which, incidentally, are available as part of the 'Droids and Ewoks' omnibus from Dark Horse) and if you haven't this will probably be a little odd and childish for you.
