Seeking rich, powerful allies to bring into the  Rebel Alliance and a new home planet for the  refugees of her native Alderaan, Princess Leia  considers a proposal that could tip the balance of power  against the evil Empire. The Hapes Consortium of  63 worlds is ruled by the Queen Mother, who wants  Leia to marry her son, the dashing and wealthy  Prince Isolder. Han Solo has always dreamed of  marrying Leia himself, and now he makes a desperate  last gamble to win her back. Soon he, Isolder,  Luke Skywalker and Artoo will be at the center of an  adventure leading to an awesome treasure, a group  of Force-trained "witches," and a  showdown with an invincible foe.

    " I don't remember to much, so probably not that good, and its a Star Wars book, so behold, 2 stars. "

    " One of my personal favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nigel Baker | 1/26/2014

    " Average book that explains the Leia & Han Solo relationship. Not all that great on the personalities of all the characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Icarus | 1/25/2014

    " Has Wolverton ever seen any of the original Star Wars movies? Was this a story about some other set of characters crammed into the Star Wars universe (a la the I Robot movie)? Leia's behavior is ridiculously out of character and the plot is contrived. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 1/20/2014

    " If you read one Star Wars book, read Shatterpoint. If you read two, read this one. Who knew that a good romance could be made out of the events leading up to Han and Leia's wedding? Brilliant action, a cool alien society, and Luke and Han at top form. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 12/31/2013

    " I never read any Star Wars books..ever. This one was surprisingly readable lol! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Carreiro | 9/2/2013

    " rooted for han and leia all the way they belong together "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex Cunningham | 6/15/2013

    " Three words: witches riding rancors. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Maddaford | 2/23/2013

    " I read this book over and over again, especially the last few chapters. I loved the scenes between Han and Leia even though I was pretty fixated on Luke at the time. He had some pretty good action in this one too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bianca | 11/1/2012

    " As a female Star Wars fan I am weak when it comes to romance. Yes, it got weird. Yes, it was pretty out there (even for Star Wars), but it was pretty awesome to read how Han and Leia eventually got married. Plus the very ending has a pretty hilarious twist in my opinion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Allison | 2/3/2012

    " I've seen a lot of reviews comparing this book to fan fiction. I think that's really doing an injustice to authors of fan fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 1/23/2012

    " There were witches! And an epic romance! What else could my teenage girl's heart have desired? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Jones | 6/3/2008

    " Absolutely one of the best books I have ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 5/23/2008

    " A good enough read. I find it interesting that so many of these books feel the need to give Luke a love interest that only lasts 100 pages. That guy sure wears his heart on his sleeve... "

    " It was okay yet a little weird "
