    1 thought on “The Courtship of Princess Leia

    1. One of the best Star Wars novels BEGINNING THE PATH OF THE FORCEThis was my very first novel about Star Wars When I read it, back then in 1996, 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 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 [...]

    2. To call this fanfiction is an insult to fanfiction And somehow this book was on so many best of Star Wars Expanded Universe lists, and everyone s all nostalgic about it Look at it Let s examine the main elements of this cover Han Solo in a turtleneck Princess Leia in a wedding dress that doesn t look like it s going to stay on R2D2 and some stormtroopers looking lost as heck there are no stormtroopers in the book Alien Micheal BoltonI should have known better I really should have But child me sh [...]

    3. I ll start out with some The Courtship of Princess Leia trivia, courtesy of the Star Wars wiki Dave Wolverton was originally contracted to write a trilogy, which was canceled Because of the numerous plot threads running through this novel, it s been suggested that CoPL is the conglomeration of that trilogy The paperback cover was also changed from the original one, featuring wedding dress Leia, Blade Runner Han, and Fabio esque Isolder, to a action orientated cover with rancors and the trio in [...]

    4. 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.

    5. This book hurts my brain I don t buy Wolverton s characterization of Han and Leia for a second Also, there are witches A planet of ian female witches Seriously The EU novels are basically published fan fiction and, honestly, I ve read better on the internets.

    6. I m supposed to be happy that we re going to crash into the planet instead of blow up in space My quest to review all the previous Star Wars Expanded Universe books I read in my teenaged years continues Leia Organa has been campaigning to get the powerful Hapan Cluster to aid the New Republic in its fight against the Imperial Remnant led by Warlord Zsinj Things somewhat backfire when the Queen agreesunder the condition that Leia marry the Queen s son and heir, Prince Isolder Han, being outraged, [...]

    7. If zero stars were an option that is what this book would warrant Nigh on one hundred pages in, and I simply put could not suffer through any because I am a Star Wars fan and this book was doing as good a job as Lucas and his recent film outings to extinguish that love permanently.I have never read any Dave Wolverton before, and given the poor quality of writing exhibited in this book he is an author I will stay away from in the future Not only did I not care for him on a craft level as it perta [...]

    8. Although it was not the most well written of the Star Wars books I have read, it was what sucked me into reading them in the first place I am a sucker for romance, and you just can t beat it between Han and Leia In this book, they have drifted apart though the business of their duties, but Han is forced to go to extreme measures when Leia is about to be married of to the Prince of the Happes Consortium After a winning her a planet in a sabac game, he kidnapps her and takes her to it, which is wh [...]

    9. To be honest I barely remember the plot of this book, but it had Dark Side witches riding on Rancors, what else do you want There s not much else I want from the Star Wars EU than that MK.

    10. Um, so the premise of this doesn t make sense Leia gets an offer of marriage from this prince and, at first, it s played as if this is something she is considering for political reasons Which would make sense and be a good conflict But suddenly she starts to have feelings for him right away He s already in love with after seeing her once or something I seriously thought there was some mind control going on here because I didn t buy it at all.Meanwhile, everyone including Leia acts as if Han is w [...]

    11. I just want everyone to know that I checked this book out of the library every other month and all I wanted from life was the wedding dress Leia is wearing on the cover.

    12. 12 28 16 Orginally read ages ago, but reread upon the recent death of Carrie Fisher While Fisher was and will always be an icon, May she rest in peace this book remains pretty terrible.Anyone have any GOOD EU books or comics featuring Leia prominently

    13. Such a great book It picks up right where Return of the Jedi leaves off, and it is such a fun read for fans of the films.

    14. Well, that certainly was an experience I m so glad this book isn t canon any.I have no idea how to even begin summarizing this experience, so I think we re just going to have to list things out.Good things about this book1 This book invented the Nightsisters And the Nightsisters are awesome I love their interpretation of the Force as magic, and I think they have a lot of really interesting potential.2 I was warned that Luke gets raped by Nightsisters in this book, but he doesn t Being threatened [...]

    15. Dave Wolverton has the distinction of having written one of the cheesiest and worst Star Wars Expanded Universe novels that I have read so far I m probably being generous giving this a two star rating The Courtship of Princess Leia is, as the title suggests, the story of how Han Solo eventually woos Leia s hand in marriage Published in 1994, TCOPL takes place two years after the events of the film Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi Rumor has it that Wolverton intended it to be a trilogy Bas [...]

    16. Synopsis After the death of Darth Vader and the Emperor, what is left of the Empire is still fighting against the weakened Alliance Leia finds a cluster of planets known as the Hapes consortium that could give her aid, but, in order to seal the deal, she must marry the Queen Mother s son None too happy about it, Han takes her to the planet of Dathomir, which appears beautiful, but has some dark secrets that will threaten not only the two of them, but also Luke.My Review This was relatively medio [...]

    17. You couldn t set out to craft a book better designed to extinguish my Star Wars obsession than this particular offering Blech.First, Wolverton has no clear concept of who Leia is and what makes her tick He tries to pretend that Leia could not love Han after the ending of Jedi, and even seriously consider marrying someone else Hogwash.Second, he spends time in the heads of Han, Luke, and the would be wooer even C 3PO than he does in Leia s head, although given his already stated inadequate under [...]

    18. The first Star Wars Extended Universe book I ever read May 1995 I was surprised to like it, and it led to me reading EU books This one I had to reread largely for the Han Solo and C 3PO sections, which I found really funny But Isolder is such an oaf

    19. I totally geeked out on SW books back in the 90 s and this one was my favorite There s romance 3 and witches and it s totally Han centric What could you want.

    20. DID NOT FINISH If the thread of misogyny that weaves its way throughout this insipid tale doesn t delight you then perhaps the thrilling manner in which your favs are written completely out of character will enchant you instead.

    21. I couldn t help myself I had to read a bad Star Wars book This delivered I m going to post my thoughts on it here, but to be honest, my opinions largely mirror those of other, better reviewers There will not be much new here in my condemnation of this novel.To be honest, I just wanted to see the now non canon story of how Leia and Han actually married I ve read so much Zahn lately, and in those books Leia and Han are an established, loving couple, and I got to see the development of Mara and Luk [...]

    22. What a hot space mess of a book The writing was straight up weird, and everyone with the possible exception of Luke, were hilariously out of character I do see why Dathomir gets used in a lot of other Star Wars material, the world building was the only good thing about this book Basically this book was on crack but I m Star Wars trash so I had a good time reading it.

    23. 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.

    24. Sure, I m a girl who loves Leia and Han OF COURSE I WOULD LOVE THIS BOOK Some of the most romantic dialogue ever uttered on screen was from this couple I love s in Greek mythology but witches Weird Very enjoyable

    25. One of my favorites in the Star Wars fiction line.We get to see Han and Leia s romance flourish and we travel to the incredibly interesting world of Dathomir.

    26. It s been quite a few years since I ve read this and I ll probably go back and reread this , but this was the story that sold me on the Han x Leia relationship I always shipped them in the movies and knew that they got together and had a family, but it was reading this book that made me ship them and be one of my favorite couples.Also, I m mad that the EU imploded so Disney didn t use this story for Eps 7, 8, and 9.Recommended 13 for romance again, I don t remember anything besides the main stor [...]

    27. Sometimes I was like man I m so glad the EU was discarded and this book never officially happened And then sometimes I think about TLJ and I wish that the EU still happened But I love one 1 couple and I m glad they re now happily married in the EU glares at sequel trilogy.

    28. I loved how the first part of this book was like a romantic comedy It is always great to see Star Wars characters taken into other genres.

    29. Just reread this and I still love it I love how Han s determination to win Leia back, his facing the challenge of his responsibility as a war hero, lead him to desperate measures Han is still a rebel, even if he has to rebel against government leaders he helped put in place Leia is right in character, facing the one thing she has trouble saying no to duty That doesn t make her approach to dealing with Han easier to take as a reader We get to see her diplomatic side to though and how it causes fr [...]

    30. Having never read any of the EU Star Wars books, I was encouraged to start with this one, and, honestly, even if a person has no interest in the EU at all, I d still recommend reading this one After reading it, I was filled with the overwhelming sense of sadness that it s not longer considered canon, and it s just hard for me to accept, because as far as how Leia and Han finally tied the knot stories go, I don t think you can do better than this.On top of being marvelous for all the main charact [...]
