She is proof that one woman can make a difference. She is the catalyst that helped to turn a ragtag rebellion into the Rebel Alliance. She provided the impetus for the "Heroes of Yavin" in their attack on the Death Star. She is the spark that ignited the flames of passion in one of the galaxy's most notorious rogues. "She," of course, is Princess Leia, the leader - and the heart - of the rebellion against
Palpatine's galactic empire...

The four stories in this volume follow Leia from the weeks just before the events in A New Hope, to just before The Empire Strikes Back - from her first transforming experience with armed rebellion, to facing the ramifications of the destruction of her homeworld, to the beginning of true love.

Volume four in the Star Wars Empire series explores Leia's impact as the heart of the rebellion, from her realisation of her role during a tragedy-strewn consular mission; her attempt to find an alternative base for the Rebels on the homeworld of an old love; a violent confrontation with a hidden monster; and a moment shared with charismatic rogue Han Solo.

All of the tales have their merits and I particularly liked the way that A Little Piece of Home had a little more fun with the Star Wars Universe - allowing itself to explore aliens and environments not covered previously.

This collection will please Star Wars fans who want to see their favourite characters engage in something a little different.
