Book Summary: The galaxy is at war.

Although the Rebel Alliance has won a few battles against the Empire, hope is fading. The Empire is about to unveil the greatest weapon the galaxy has ever seen--the Death Star. The Rebels' only chance to defeat it now lies in the unlikely hands of a princess, a scoundrel, and a farm boy....
Book Review: My first thoughts after reading this book: wow! This was truly a fun and amazing read.

Not only did this book give us an insight into the thoughts of the three main characters but it also served to give more to the characters themselves. We learn more of Leia's life on Alderaan. Her relationship with her parents, her aunts, and her rise to becoming a senator. Little things like that give more to the character than a simple image on a screen. You never really hear what they are thinking or what internal struggle is going on inside of their head. This book delivers it to you.

I really enjoyed this one. I had a hard time putting it down and woud devoured it in one day if it had not been for family obligations during the holidays.

Even if you have never seen the Star Wars saga, give this book a chance before you decide to dive in. You might be surprise and enjoy the movie a bit more as you now see, feel, and understand the action of the characters.
