    Like Father, Like Daughter?

    Tatooine Ghost sees Leia on her father's home planet, confronted with the harsh realities of his childhood and simultaneously struggling to complete a mission for the fragile New Republic and cope with her new doubts regarding Anakin Skywalker's rise and fall. As the race against Imperial forces rushes to its conclusion, Leia is forced to consider the same circumstances that have led many Star Wars fans to empathize with The Chosen One's missteps and eventual fall from grace. It's a well-done character study for fans of either Anakin or Leia, while at the same time providing plenty of action for readers who prefer fast pacing and a driven plot. A solid effort that will satisfy thoughtful fans of the series in a way that some Star Wars books have failed to do.

    Spoiler alert! Denning wows us again!

    I loved this book from cover to cover! I liked how Leia got to learn more about her father( when he wasn't an evil Sithhead). Although, I have to agree that Leia and Luke should get to learn about their mother( but Jacen Solo mentions Padme in the book Betrayal). Im sooo happy Leia decided to have kids. What a great story to introduce the idea of Solo Jedi kids!!

    If you like Han and Leia better than Luke and the others, you will like this book. If you do not like the Han/Leia thread you will hate this book since that's all you're getting.

    In a nutshell, Han and Leia go off to Tatooine, supposedly to recover a stolen painting from Alderaan. Then it gets complicated as it turns out the Imperials are after it too, and it also happens to be the hiding place for some important information which we can't let the Imperials get a hold of. THe painting is stolen from the auction and Han and Leia are off on a quest to get it back. They are accompanied by some Squibs, a bunch of deal-making aliens who are great for comic relief. MEanwhile Leia starts turning up all sorts of information about a boy named Anakin Skywalker who lived on Tatooine a while back. So the quest for the painting turns into a quest for some answers about Leia's past. Not to mention the impact these answers might have on her future.

    All very intriguing stuff. the Squibs, as I said, are hysterical and lighten the mood. Han and Leia are newly married and occasionally slip off the edge into sappy/cuteness but thankfully Denning yanks them back before the cute level gets too high.

    the bits about Anakin's mother and what happnened on Tatooine after he left are intersting also. However I can'te decide if everyone KNEW that Anakin became Vader or if it was this big secret and no one knew what became of him after he left Tatooine. at times the book seems to imply both versions of the story. this was the only plot point that bothered me in this book.

    Overall I recommend this book as a good installment in the Star Wars universe.

    Good story by Denning.

    Good story by Denning, although I thought it dragged in places. Leia and Han pursuing a stolen painting didn't seem to help the book in terms of action, although it did give a good backstory about Shmi through the journal. It would have been nice to see more of Luke in this novel -- he's mentioned only briefly.

    Truly Wonderful

    I enjoyed this book a lot. The concept was good, the characterization was great (a lot better than in some other star wars novels) and it tied in the first trilogy with the second trilogy. The reason why I would not give it five stars is because it got a bit slow (and confusing) at parts. However, there was a lot of action and adventure. I would recommend this book to all SW fans!
