The Courtship of Princess Leia by Dave Wolverton

Reviewed by Adam, grade 10:

The Courtship of Princess Leia by Dave Wolverton, is primarily based upon the love triangle consisting of Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Prince Isolder of the Hapes Cluster. Throw in a kidnapping here and there and add a group of witches with force capabilities and what do you get? An Action packed novel in which Han Kidnaps Leia in an attempt to prevent her from marrying Isolder. But, he accidentally crash lands his ship on Dathomir which is populated by rancors, and The Nightsisters. And, throughout the book Han and Leia must remain on the run to evade the clutches of The Nightsisters, who are hunting for a way to escape the planet so they can sow their evil throughout the galaxy.

I like the book especially because it introduces the Witches of Dathomir which are among the more intriguing clans written about in Star Wars novels. I recommend this book to Young Adults.
