The Princess and the Scoundrel


Alternating chapters provide an internal dialog of Han and Leia's feelings and thoughts but zero action until around chapter 40 - and even then it's pretty sparse.

It was nice to see some insight into the immediate post-emperor universe, including viewpoints of both sides. I liked the descriptions around the ice world, technological and environmental.

Unfortunately, the main plot (and all the action) happened because of an implausible series of events and situations, and some very un-Han and -Leia like moments. Belief was very hard to suspend in this case, and the book just wasn't fun. I didn't think it was a particularly good romance, either.
