But at that moment, whatever attachment she had ever felt for Han suddenly seemed to become as insubstantial as fog, as a gentle white mist, and Isolder was the sun, burning it all away. With tears running down her cheeks she tangled her arms around Isolder and promised, "I'll come with you! You believed it, and you made me believe it. I thought our love was something special, something I would gladly die for, and I'm not going to throw away our future just because some other prince comes along.

Dave Wolverton had signed on to do a Star Wars novel trilogy, but it has been speculated that the deal fell through and the proposed trilogy was compressed into this novel. The reason for the second cover is that sales were not as high as expected. It was thought this may have been due to a misconception that it was a romance novel, rather than action. On this basis, a more action-oriented cover was made for the paperback release. The descriptions of the old Jedi Order from the early chapters contain several pieces of information that fit almost perfectly with the later depictions of the Order from the prequel trilogynamely: Other than Redemptionmost other pre— The Phantom Menace depictions of the old Jedi Order made them largely decentralized and based on such outlying worlds as Dantooine and Ossus.
The Jedi headquarters on Coruscant contains the high master's throne room and an archive with a Jedi Master assigned to oversee it, which would mesh with the High Council ChamberJedi Archivesand Jedi archivist. In the "final hours" of the Galactic Republicthe Jedi headquarters on Coruscant was attacked by "invading Imperials" with only a few Jedi managing to escape, which would equate with Order 66 and Operation: Knightfallas well as almost perfect timing concerning the Declaration of a New Order.
The Millennium Falcon seems more heavily armed than normal in this book, as it uses weapons not normally attributed to it. For example, the Falcon fires ion cannons and proton torpedoes multiple times in addition to the normal quad laser cannons and concussion missile launchers.
Luke's lightsaber blade is blue in this book, even though he lost his blue saber in The Empire Strikes Back. This book makes a reference to Jedi pupils being trained on a ship, despite the fact that they were actually trained at the Jedi Temple.
It is most likely that Luke just didn't know this. Both the Imperial Remnant and the New Republic have dedicated considerable forces to ending his reign. But Zsinj has possession of one of the few Super Star Destroyers left, and whenever nearly cornered, slips away to a secret stronghold where the SSD Iron Fist is repaired. Summary At the opening of the novel, Han Solowho from aboard the Mon Remonda has been prosecuting the search for this hidden fastness, wearily returns to the recently captured Coruscant expecting an end to the long separation between him and his beloved, Princess Leia, head of the New Republic.
To his great surprise, when his vessel drops out of hyperspace and into the Coruscant system, what appears are a number of fearsome Imperial Star DestroyersHapan Battle Dragonsand Hapes Nova Class battle cruiser.
Eventually, Han learns that the Hapes cluster had sent a delegation of some manner to the New Republic. He lands and enters the Imperial Palacewhere, with the help of C-3POwho translates and comments on the formal diplomatic reception, he watches the Hapes delegation present to Leia a number of stunning gifts: The effect is devastating; Leia nearly accepts, driving Han into a frenzy of fear and jealousy.
Han eventually wanders into a cantina in the lower reaches of Coruscant, where he participates in a high-stakes sabacc game.
One of his opponents runs out of liquid financial instruments and instead proffers real estate: Han thinks he has found a gift which would prove his worthiness to Leia and compare favorably with the gifts of Isolder and provide a place to resettle the expatriates of Alderaan.
When Leia examines his gift and points out that he has been conned since Dathomir was in the section of the galaxy controlled by ZsinjHan is further devastated.
