Princess Leia returns for an all-new adventure in this thrilling upper middle grade novel. Set between Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi, the story follows the warrior princess as she leads a ragtag group of rebels on a dangerous mission against the evil Galactic Empire.

Hidden in the story are also hints and clues about the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making this a must-read for fans old and new!

Princess Leia is a lot more than what we see her as. To me she is Leia - Luke's sister who falls in love with Han Solo. Clearly she kicks butt too...but to me I'm more worried about the Jedi's or the smugglers such as Han Solo....which you would think being a woman myself I would pay more attention to Leia. But seriously...she doesn't have a lightsaber....

Anyways - this book showcases just how Leia is able to kick butt. It sheds light on her, which I appreciated. Yes she's not Luke Skywalker and she doesn't have a lightsaber. But technically she has Jedi in her blood - she could be a Jedi. And this book makes me realize this. With this book you solely focus on Leia, she is the heroine in this story and therefore she is who you follow.

This story gives you so much more insight into why Leia is such a key player in Star Wars and it helps those of us (mainly only myself - probably) who focus on the awesome Jedi to instead focus on Princess Leia.
