Oh The Courtship of Princess Leia…… I remember reading this novel when it first come out. Before the time of the Disney, before the dark times that were the other three movies… Well I should say that. Overtime I’ve come to like the for what they are and it’s also fun to watch my kids watch them. Anywho!! Novel yes! Sorry…  Courtship of Princess Leia.. I think this is the first novel of Star Wars where it left me with a bad taste in my mouth.. So many unfinished story lines, plot holes, etc. I also found out that the author Dave Wolverton was to pen a trilogy. Starting with Courtship, which would explain some of the unfinished plots. But the whole thing was canceled like Fox slapping around Firefly…..Oooo To soon?.. The reasons being, I still don’t know and can’t seem to find anything about it. It’s funny reading through all the hate for this book tho hahaha. Comparing it to really bad fan fiction, yeah fan fiction.. Over all i would stay away from this one.

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.
