Han and Leia struggle to keep the Empire at bay as stunning revelations from the past threaten to eclipse the future of the New Republic. . . .

The deaths of Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine by no means spelled the end of the Empire. In the aftermath, the New Republic has faced a constant struggle to survive. Now a new threat looms: a masterpiece of Alderaanian art--lost after the planet's destruction--has resurfaced on the black market. It conceals a vital secret--the code used to communicate with New Republic agents undercover within the Empire. Discovery by Imperial forces would spell disaster. The only option is recovery--and Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO have been dispatched to Tatooine to infiltrate the auction.

When a dispute at the auction erupts into violence, the painting vanishes in the chaos. Han and Leia are thrust into a desperate race to reclaim it. As they battle against marauding TIE fighters, encroaching stormtroopers, and Tatooine's savage Tusken Raiders, Leia's emotional struggle over the specter of her infamous father culminates in the discovery of an extraordinary link to the past. And as long-buried secrets at last emerge, she faces a moment of reckoning that will forever alter her destiny . . . and that of the New Republic.

* My favorite Star Wars book!

* In this book, Leia leads our intrepid heroes back to Tatooine on a secret mission for the New Republic. During the course of the mission, she does everything I that look for in Leia-centered books: she has exciting adventures, she enjoys romantic moments with Han, and she grows as a character.

* Shmi Skywalker gets character development, too. While on Tatooine Leia views entries in a video diary that belonged to Shmi. Leia thus learns about her grandmother's life, and so do we.

* There is laugh-out-loud humor from C-3PO.

* The edition I read has bonus materials, including a novellette about Chewbacca.

I enjoyed that Denning was trying to mix the Prequel Era with the Classic Era. It worked out well. However, the story didn't have to be that long. I almost forgot what Han and Leia were looking for with all the detours they made in the story. There were some unnecessary parts the author could have left out, but other than that, it was an enjoyable book. (I absolutely love the cover).

Just like the films: full of action and one-liners. An enjoyable read for any Star Wars expanded universe fan. MB
