Adds to the Mythology

Around the time this came out, I read a number of the Star Wars books, including the three trilogies (Thrawn, Academy, Centerpoint et. al.). This is the only one that I keep on my shelf. It has a well-constructed and (within its setting) believable plot based on the pragmatic character of Leia, the impulsive Solo, and the, perhaps too romantic, Skywalker. Though it is Solo's actions that drive the action, Skywalker is keen to participate because of research he has done in the Jedi archives.

All-in-all, this was a strong effort. I read it twice and the only other Star Wars title I found as interesting was "Children of the Jedi". There are other titles that are good, but this one stands out.

Essential Star Wars Story

I actually consider this book part of Star Wars history (for the record I do NOT include Episodes 1, 2 or 3). It really well written, follows important and logical event following Ep. 6 and is very entertaining. Without giving away too much I hope, it gives the final pieces to the relationship of Han and Leia and I loved every minute of it. Like Zahn's trilogy, this story stays true to the characters as well as intruding new and fascinating ones. Anyone interested in finding a new chapter in the SW world must pick this one up, you won't regret it.
