Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent read! I really enjoyed Bracken's writing in this novel as it looked at A New Hope from the perspectives of Leia, Han and Luke. In particular, the Leia section was my favourite, and the flashbacks added a lot of depth to the young princess prior to when we met her in ANH. The writing itself is very visual, not overly complex, and Bracken captures the personalities of the characters we know and love. In fact, I was disappointed that the other two books in this series were written by other authors -- otherwise I would have snapped those up as well. I also really like the dust jacket for the book; the soft texture of the matte finish pairs up nicely with the glossy blue lettering and Leia image on the cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great read! I bought this book on a whim, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It's a perfect companion piece to A New Hope. It splits the story into three parts, telling the unique perspectives of Leia, Han and Luke, respectively.
