Luke, Leia, Han Solo, and the gang are attempting to find resources for their new rebel base codename "Echo". The book begins with an imperial chase and then space pirates. Then it nosedives into some silly situations. (a game?)
One of the highlights of Wells' story is the progression of the princess. You really get inside her thoughts and how she adjusts from figurehead to active participant in the rebellion. And the emotional toll that comes from watching her home planet be destroyed.
Other than that character points, this book was not at all enjoyable. And I feel really about that. I think, at this point, the problem rests with me and how I process the Expanded Universe novels of Star Wars.
