Read this one for the first time some twenty years ago, loved it then, love it now!
Bloodline isn't as focused on their love story but it's still great. It also features Ben Solo. Couldn't find a better place to ask this: Which of the adult Star Wars books have real female "leads"?
It features both beloved Leia and Mara Jade, Luke's eventual wife. See 2 questions about The Courtship of Princess Leia…. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Average rating 3.

One of the best "Star Wars" novels! That's why I felt it appropiate it to visit again the review now that Episode IX is about to be premiered. When I read this novel, back then in , when there was only one canon, and therefore it has always been very special to me. I chose it since by then I knew that Han and Leia had married at some time and they have kids, but I wondered how they tied the knot, and certainly One of the best "Star Wars" novels!
I chose it since by then I knew that Han and Leia had married at some time and they have kids, but I wondered how they tied the knot, and certainly when you have characters as Han and Leia, I was sure that it couldn't been your typical "courtship". So, when I saw the book in a bookstore, I didn't meditate much and just took it from the shelf.
I love this book, since if you are fan of the "old" trilogy, you will find all the classic elements that you love of that trilogy, but even one very good thing, now realizing in retrospective, not matter that it was written more than 15 years ago, the story feature elements that in that moment were a novelty but now they are being quite developed even in the recent animated series of Clone Wars.
Meanwhile, Luke will have to face a tribe of witches The infamous Nightsisters with knowledge about the Dark Side of the Force. Definitely it's a Star Wars novel that I highly recommend it, not matter that nowadays it's one of the so-called "Legends" since it's not canon anymore. I'm sure that you'll love the experience.

Look at it: Let's examine the main elements of this cover. I really should have. But To call this fanfiction is an insult to fanfiction And somehow this book is on so many "best-of-Star-Wars Expanded Universe" lists, and everyone's all nostalgic about it?? But child-me shipped Han and Leia before I knew what shipping was and I just wanted a fun, cute story about them, okay??
Instead we got this: spoilers? Does anyone care? Our story starts with Alien Micheal Bolton proposing to Leia Apparently his name is Isolder and he's a prince of this super fabulous and rich planet system. He saw her once and thought she was hot, so he brings her ships full of gold and proposes to her on some business meeting being live streamed to all of the New Republic Why don't people ever see me once, decide they love me and bring me copious amounts of gold?
Jedi Luke is on some space roadtrip For literally the entire first pages. I don't remember where he was going, I'm not sure he knew. He just kept talking to R2 and setting a new course Despite being in a relationship with Han Solo, Leia seriously considers Alien Micheal's proposal After she accepts the gold of course.
But she gives neither of them an answer and they have numerous allegorical dick-measuring contests and fight over her. That's enough. So now all we have to do is see what you have to offer that he doesn't have. I see your problem! Because plot. After less than 30 pages, Leia decides she no longer loves Han and wants to marry Micheal Bolton Page "Look, I don't know why people would even think that I'd marry the prince.
So don't listen to them. Listen to me. I love you for what you are--remember? A rebel, a scoundrel, a braggart. That won't ever change. But at that moment, whatever attachment she had ever felt for Han suddenly seemed to become as insubstantial as fog, as a gentle white mist, and Isolder was the sun, burning it all away.
With tears running down her cheeks she tangled her arms around Isolder and promised, "I'll come with you!
You believed it, and you made me believe it. I thought our love was something special, something I would gladly die for, and I'm not going to throw away our future just because some other prince comes along. And was going to leave and let Luke and Leia be together before he learned about that ancient plot twist in Ep. This is all so out of character and creepy. Luke feels a disturbance, comes back from his roadtrip and teams up with Micheal Bolton Micheal turns into Menelaus after Helen runs off with Paris and vows to get "his" woman back.
Luke goes with him, because Micheal has a scary empress mommy who wants to kill Han. Han and Leia crash land on 'his' planet and end up camping in the jungle for like pages And hiding from big scary creatures.
Because apparently to reignite the flame of romance, you need your Wookiee best friend and protocol droid Of course, they become prisoners who are fought over by force-witches and some warlord. Teneniel also declares Michael Bolton her slave, and reports her society of witches are allowed to buy and sell men. Han sells his planet back to his kidnappers, in exchange for Leia's hand in marriage But the witches say they won't force her hand, and instead Threepio attempts to persuade her through song and dance.
Wookiee's love him. Women love him. He's got a winning smile! Though he may seem cool and cocky, He's more sensitive than he seems, Chorus sung in accompaniment with three women who all sound like Leia Han Solo, What a man!
He's every princess's dream! Somehow it involves Han strapping a detonator on himself and marching into some war meeting.
Leia finds this all really mature and hot Han and Leia decide they are in love again Assault and kidnapping be damned! Leia suddenly realized how much she had missed this, missed feeling such raw, elemental fervor for a man.
Alas, Alien Micheal Bolton, it was not meant to be. But for real, the suicide bomber thing really turns her on "I've got to say, you really look good with a bomb strapped to you. Don't feel too bad for Micheal, because he decides to marry the witch who claimed him as a slave Because he's into that, apparently.

The Courtship of Princess Leia: Star Wars Legends
Though the Battle of Endor resulted in the destruction of the Emperor and Darth Vader , along with the best of the Imperial Starfleet , the remnants of the Empire are still a danger. One of the recently formed New Republic 's most dire foes is a splinter faction of the former Empire, led by Warlord Zsinj. Zsinj is a cunning strategist whose skills have earned him the allegiance of almost a full third of the entire galaxy. Both the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic have dedicated considerable forces to ending his reign. But Zsinj has possession of one of the few Super Star Destroyers left, and whenever nearly cornered, slips away to a secret stronghold where the SSD Iron Fist is repaired. At the opening of the novel, Han Solo , who from aboard the Mon Remonda has been prosecuting the search for this hidden fastness, wearily returns to the recently captured Coruscant expecting an end to the long separation between him and his beloved, Princess Leia, head of the New Republic.
Books closer to Level 1 are easier to read and understand, more important, and of higher quality. You know those novels your mom always had by her bedside, the ones with half-shirtless Fabio embracing a dainty lady in a thin gown? Well this is kind of like that, but Star Wars style. His plan?
