Darth Vader and the emperor are dead, but the Empire lives on, and the Alliance must continue to struggle with dwindling supplies of cash and resources. Princess Leia, seeking new allies to bring into the Alliance and a new planet as home for the influential refugees of Alderaan, considers a proposal that could tip the balance of power against the evil Empire. The Hapes consortium, a cluster of 63 high-tech worlds, is ruled by the Queen Mother. She wants Leia to marry her son, the dashing and wealthy Prince Isolder.

When Han Solo hears the news of Leia's impending nuptials, he reacts with shock. Han has always dreamed of marrying Leia. Yet, in spite of his heroic exploits, he feels she sees him as nothing more than a rogue and a pirate, unworthy of her hand. Now he makes a desperate last gamble to win her back. Tricking Leia into accompanying him, Han flees with her to the beautiful and untamed planet Dathomir, where he hopes to win her heart.

Fearing the imperious queen's reaction to Han's rash move, Luke Skywalker forms an unlikely alliance with Prince Isolder to track down the runaways. Luke has been traveling the far reaches of the galaxy in search of the scattered lore of the Jedi Knights. But when he, Artoo, and Isolder set off to Dathomir, Luke does not suspect that he is beginning an adventure that will lead to the discovery of 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! "

    " 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 "
