Books closer to Level 1 are easier to read and understand, more important, and of higher quality. You know those novels your mom always had by her bedside, the ones with half-shirtless Fabio embracing a dainty lady in a thin gown? Well this is kind of like that, but Star Wars style. His plan? Darth Vader and the emperor are dead, but the Empire lives on, and the Alliance must continue to struggle with dwindling supplies of cash and resources. Princess Leia, seeking new allies to bring into the Alliance and a new planet as home for the influential refugees of Alderaan, considers a proposal that could tip the balance of power against the evil Empire.
The Hapes consortium, a cluster of 63 high-tech worlds, is ruled by the Queen Mother. She wants Leia to marry her son, the dashing and wealthy Prince Isolder. When Han Solo hears the news of Leia's impending nuptials, he reacts with shock.
Han has always dreamed of marrying Leia. Yet, in spite of his heroic exploits, he feels she sees him as nothing more than a rogue and a pirate, unworthy of her hand. Now he makes a desperate last gamble to win her back. Tricking Leia into accompanying him, Han flees with her to the beautiful and untamed planet Dathomir, where he hopes to win her heart. Fearing the imperious queen's reaction to Han's rash move, Luke Skywalker forms an unlikely alliance with Prince Isolder to track down the runaways.
Luke has been traveling the far reaches of the galaxy in search of the scattered lore of the Jedi Knights. But when he, Artoo, and Isolder set off to Dathomir, Luke does not suspect that he is beginning an adventure that will lead to the discovery of an awesome treasure, a group of Force-trained "witches" This is one of my favorite Star Wars books to date. 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.
It doesn't focus so much on "romance" as ideas of the Force, matriarchal worlds and tribes, as well as the state of parts of the Galaxy after Return of the Jedi. 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. Nevertheless, this book is a ton of fun to read, is a perfect time capsule of what made Legends both wonderful and weird.
Like shellsuits and Filofaxes, some things have stood the test of time and some This was the early days of the EU when every new author had a completely different take, and not all of them stuck. But I have to score this books highest for originality, and so much of the lore in this book has gone on to be integral parts of the Galaxy, even as recently as Fallen Order.

The Courtship of Princess Leia: Star Wars Legends
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. One of the recently formed New Republic 's most dire foes is a splinter faction of the former Empire, led by Warlord Zsinj. 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. 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.
