Publisher's Summary

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo.

The Death Star is destroyed. Darth Vader is dead. The Empire is desolate. But on the forest moon of Endor, among the chaos of a changing galaxy, time stands still for a princess and her scoundrel.

After being frozen in carbonite, then risking everything for the Rebellion, Han is eager to stop living his life for other people. He and Leia have earned their future together, a thousand times over. And when he proposes to Leia, it’s the first time in a long time he’s had a good feeling about this. For Leia, a lifetime of fighting doesn’t seem truly over. There is work still to do, penance to pay for the dark secret that she now knows runs through her veins. Her brother, Luke, is offering her that chance—one that comes with family and the promise of the Force. But when Han asks her to marry him, Leia finds her answer immediately on her lips . . . Yes.

Yet happily ever after doesn’t come easily. As soon as Han and Leia depart their idyllic ceremony for their honeymoon, they find themselves on the grandest and most glamorous stage of all: the Halcyon, a luxury vessel on a very public journey to the most wondrous worlds in the galaxy. Their marriage, and the peace and prosperity it represents, are a lightning rod for all—including Imperial remnants still clinging to power.

Facing their most desperate hour, the soldiers of the Empire have dispersed across the galaxy, retrenching on isolated planets vulnerable to their influence. As the Halcyon travels from world to world, one thing becomes abundantly clear: The war is not over. But as danger draws closer, Han and Leia find that they fight their best battles not alone, but as husband and wife.

Excellent

The back and forth between the two narrators was a great touch. and we finally get their wedding!
Marc thompson is perfect at Han. I thoroughly enjoy all his StarWars work.

meh it's ok

Well it ain't The Courtship of Princess Leia. I was hoping Han would send that would be kidnapper out the escape pod but we all know the house of mouse won't allow that. I preferred Han's scoundrel behavior of Kidnapping Leia and having Prince Islolder come to the rescue with Luke in tow. but I have to keep reminding myself this a new Star Wars or alternate reality but as always I enjoyed the Marc Thompson reading it but it was an OK story overall

Entertaining but sad no character progression

i found the story very one dimensional. it lacked the interplay from any other storylines. the depth of the characters never really progressed.

EVERYTHING A HANLEIA FAN COULD ASK FOR

I laughed, I cried, I did both at the same time. Just WOW! 100% recommend for those who love or even don't love this couple as this book very well may change your mind.

awesome adventure

Great story. Really fun side adventure for Han and Leia. wedding made me tear up. excellent character insights peppered throughout. one of the only pieces of SW media to really focus on the trauma of being frozen in Carbonite for a year.

The story and the narration - a must listen!

The story takes place just after the events of Return of the Jedi, Han and Leia marry. And of course in the fragile time after the fall of the empire theI honeymoon has bigger implications.
The narration and production are top notch. Had a lot of fun listening to this.

Slow paced story

I like most of the Star Wars books I've listened to, and I like reading romance, so I figured I'd give this a shot even though Han, Leia, and their bickering are definitely NOT my favorite couple.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of bickering in this story. It also moves really slowly, with many chapters feeling like I paid for an advertisement of Disney's Star Cruiser experience. The main action didn't get going until 2/3 of the way through, and there weren't any plot twists I didn't see coming.

Many of the themes were well-worn territory for Star Wars, and the trouble with well-established characters is that fans know they (and their marriage) survive the story. There aren't any secondary characters in this book that listeners care enough about to generate any real cliff-hanger moments. The performance was fine, but the story itself isn't worth the listen unless you absolutely love Han & Leia's dynamic. Download Alphabet Squadron or Thrawn instead.

love the story after the story

It's a lot of Romance between the "pew, pew, pew. A little slow starting but understandable trying to catch us up on the after the fall of Palpatin (or so they think) clean up. The description of Han and Leia's wedding is so beautiful ❣️ Not my favorite Star Ears novel but still very entertaining.
