Possible spoilers I have to back dp4m up on this one. From what I've read so far, I haven't read anything even remotely bashing Leia. In fact she's been described as beautiful more then once and once by Tahiri who, thinking her thoughts, could understand why Han fell in love with Leia in the first place. And nothing I've read so far has dished their relationship. Like I said before, they do seem to be arguing more, but it's been play fighting for the most part and even if they argue for real, it's over quickly with no residual anger between them. And after witnessing a so-called fight between her parents, Jaina thinks about how their marriage has grown stronger as a result of all they've been through. While I'm disappointed in the secondary role they seem to be playing thus far, I have no complaints about the way they're being written. It's not the best they've been written by a long shot, but it's certainly not the worst either. Shelley, I have no doubt that this book is meant to showcase the younger generation. I guess that's what I find so disappointing about Remnant and the NJO as a whole. It just distresses me so to see the characters I love reduced to such insignificant roles as to not even be POV characters anymore.
