I highly recommend this book to any one who is a fan of Star Wars. It looks like Leia has finally faced her past and particially forgiven her father as she was given her Grandmother's Journal, and learned a little about her father's life, while she and Han chase after a painting that contains a secret code key to the whereabouts of all of the spies that are undercover in the Imperial government.

To the anonymous who asked what the hell happened to Anakin solo?--Em first- its not anakin solo--its anakin SKYWALKER. Secondly, if you know the star wars genre he turned into darth vader who was eventually died in the empire strikes back. overall i loved the book. i thought it was amazing-however i would've liked to have known what obi wan kenobi's data pad would've said. could've been interesting! Overall i loved the book and would recommend it to anyone who is a star wars fan.

A lost piece of Alderaanian art has resurfaced on the black-market. The art contains a secret code that is linked to the rebel Shadowcast network, which links all of its undercover agents. Ultimately Tatooine Ghost is the story of Princess Leia’s quest to discover the truth about her father Darth Vader, particularly when he was Anakin Skywalker as a boy on Tatooine. The initial energetic passion and accusatory banter between Leia and Han Solo were rather emblematic of the original trilogy, and I really felt that the characters were alive. The early main scenes were Han and Leia’s elaborate attempt to recapture the lost artistic masterpiece on Tatooine at an auction, or to destroy it if the imperials won. These scenes were fun to read, and I enjoyed reading about the entourage of characters and political interplay in the auction hall; it was classic Star Wars! I also thought that once Tatooine Ghost got going, Leia’s journey into discovering the truth about Anakin Skywalker through recorded holographic messages, and the people who lived with him when he was a boy, was fascinating to read. It provided a strong bridge between Episode: I The Phantom Menace, when Anakin was a slave who raced in a podrace, and the original trilogy. My criticism was that after the auction scene and Leia’s truth-seeking, many of the action scenes, technology, and organisations later in the story were over-descriptive. I wanted another main event of import to occur that would test or otherwise lead Leia to the truth rather than teaching it to her through messages or conversations with people. Small skirmishes with imperials were a repetitive feature of this book, and Han Solo’s hotshot personality seemed to have dried up.  Overall there was much to like about Tatooine Ghost, despite my criticism. I probably would have rated this 3.5 on a more precise scale. If you’re looking for some perspective between the old and new trilogies, and you love the immense construct of the Star Wars universe I would definitely give this a read.

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.
