Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"Anthony Heald is a superb performer for the various Star Wars audiobooks. He slides in and out of distinctive Star Wars characters with such smoothness that the characters are instantly recognizable, as if the original actors were working in ensemble." (AudioFile)

    "Courtship Review"

    Above Average:
    Written very well, encompases humor and action with a well thought through plot. Need to read/listen to this book in order to understand future Star Wars novels. A very small percentage of the book actually pertains to courting Leai.

    "Good Listen"

    As an OTR trucker, Audio books keep it from getting so Monotonous. Since I am a die hard star wars fan I like the star wars books. This book was a great read and when I got the audio book I was hoping for the best and got it. I've listened to it three times now and am drawn in as much as the previous times. a recommended audio book for the star wars fans!

    "Great Story, god awful narration"

    I've read the book and I enjoyed it. Despite how much I enjoyed the book the narration is equivalent to filling a wetsuit full of curry and let it fester in sauna for a month, then pulling it out, cutting it open and inhaling deeply. Do not waste money on this. I love Star Wars but I regret the time and money I wasted on this audio book.
