Background[ edit ] 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. 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. Summary[ edit ] 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.

To his great surprise, when his vessel drops out of hyperspace and into the Coruscant system, what appears are a number of fearsome Imperial Star Destroyers , Hapan Battle Dragons , and Hapes Nova Class battle cruiser.

Eventually, Han learns that the Hapes cluster had sent a delegation of some manner to the New Republic. The effect is devastating; Leia nearly accepts, driving Han into a frenzy of fear and jealousy.

Han eventually wanders into a cantina in the lower reaches of Coruscant, where he participates in a high-stakes sabacc game. One of his opponents runs out of liquid financial instruments and instead proffers real estate: a deed to an entire habitable planet , Dathomir. Han thinks he has found a gift which would prove his worthiness to Leia and compare favorably with the gifts of Isolder and provide a place to resettle the expatriates of Alderaan.

When Leia examines his gift and points out that he has been conned since Dathomir was in the section of the galaxy controlled by Zsinj , Han is further devastated. Han snaps. Prince Isolder pursues him with his Hapan fleet. There they both discovered that Zsinj had truly laid claim to Dathomir—in orbit around it was the Iron Fist, a number of other capital ships, and the complete orbital shipyard Han had hunted for so long.

The Millennium Falcon had been forced to land on Dathomir itself, where it is captured by the Imperial garrison Zsinj had marooned on the surface years ago. The best they had been able to do was seal the vessel thoroughly, so thoroughly that only centuries later the first intruder would need a lightsaber to gain access.

As they peruse the vessel, however, Isolder and Luke are captured by a Dathomiri witch, who enslaves them and takes them to her village. If they did not, he would keep his "nightcloak" an interconnected network of geostationary satellites, which reflected all solar emissions back into space intact, which would slowly freeze Dathomir, ending all life on the planet.

Eventually, they infiltrate the Imperial garrison and steal the Falcon, piloting it out into the ongoing Battle of Dathomir. Solo allows the Iron Fist to acquire the Falcon with a tractor beam ; once it is within the deflector shields , he breaks it free of the beam lock, piloting his vessel over the superstructure of the gigantic vessel.

Arriving upon the main bridge, he launches two concussion missiles , destroying the bridge, killing Zsinj, and knocking out the ventral shields.

Shortly thereafter, Solo and Leia marry, having realized during their intrepid journey together that they loved each other. Isolder is consoled by the fact he has fallen in love with his captor, Teneniel Djo.

Reception[ edit ] Reception for The Courtship of Princess Leia was predominantly positive and the book was a New York Times Bestseller in both its hardback and paperback formats.

The Courtship of Princess Leia

Partially because it was my first EU novel, but also because the story is so rich and interesting. Wolverton gives just enough detail and background information while expertly navigates the characters to new places and with some intense scenes. This is the story of how they finally get together. Many of the characters come into play later in the timeline and the events that transpire have permanent ramifications on the story. Han is extremely oafish, Leia is easily swept off her feet, Luke is extremely overpowered, and there are numerous baffling leaps in plot.

But somehow, one of the absolute worst EU books still has an enduring influence on Star Wars canon. Advertisement The Courtship of Princess Leia may not have the most outlandish plot twists I give that to The Corellian Trilogy or the most absurd tech the Sun Crusher is a thing that exists , but as a whole, I think it fails the most out of all the old Star Wars books. On every conceivable level. Advertisement Spoilers for a twenty-one year-old book follow. The Courtship of Princess Leia has one of the most serpentine plots of any single book.
