Here, in the first Lucas-sanctioned (if after the recent changes in the new Blu-Ray edition make that mean anything to any of us any more) fiction set after the events of 'Return of the Jedi', Timothy Zahn takes the reader on a fantastic Star Wars adventure full of drama, politics, and action. Jedi Witches, Noghri, Han & Leia married, Leia carrying twin children, and a mysterious red-head pursuing Luke Skywalker - who could ask for a better beginning to every other post-Original Trilogy book series that followed in the last 20 years.

Heir to the Empire was the first Star Wars book I ever read. I was so hooked after this one I have read this and it's 2 counterparts 6 times and have gone on to read 25+ Star Wars books...though Timothy Zahn's Star Wars books have always been my fave!
