9780553095401: Star Wars: Planet of Twilight

The Star Wars(r) saga continues in hardcover.  Renat Chorios is a backwater land that serves as a sanctuary for a peaceful religious cult.  But peace is threatened with the rise of a sinister warlord who takes Princess Leia hostage by tricking her into attending a diplomatic meeting.  Meanwhile Luke continues his search for his lost love, and finds that the force has some uncontrollable and deadly powers in this strange land.  At the center of the turmoil lies a once-dormant life form capable of destroying the entire galaxy.

Review:

Prepare yourself for a nonstop Leia-fest. The New Republic's new leader is back in bondage again, but at least this time she doesn't have Jabba the Hut slobbering all over her. Kidnapped after a clandestine mission to the former prison-planet Nam Chorios goes awry, Leia relies on her wits, her ever-developing Jedi powers (including some mean saber-swinging), and her pals to escape, survive, and resolve the conflict on the desolate planet. Han, Chewie, and Lando may get short shrift in Planet of Twilight, but Luke gets in some good scenes on the trail of Force-sensitive babe Callista, and the droids provide more than their share of laughs. While veteran writer Hambly doesn't subscribe to the admittedly entertaining shut-up-and-start-blasting school of Star Wars writing, her skilled characterizations and more literary stylings are a welcome addition to the fold. --Paul Hughes
