"Zorba the Hutt's Revenge" is the third book of the "
Jedi Prince" series by Paul and Hollace Davids.
In order to help Ken become accustomed to the world outside of the Lost City of the Jedi, Luke brings him to
Tatooineto experience the "Droidfest." Although they are attacked by Tusken Raidersand bounty hunters hoping to get the reward Trioculus set for Ken, they manage to escape to Bespinwith Han's housewarming gift, a housekeeping droid named Kate. Meanwhile, Zorba the Hutt, the father of Jabba, upon learning of his son's death, flies to Cloud Cityin order to claim Jabba's casino. Although the governor, Lando Calrissian, who has taken over the casino, refuses the claim, he agrees to bet the city and the casino on a game of sabacc. With Zorba marking the cards in an ultraviolet paint that only Hutts can see, Lando lost the city and left after warning Han and Leia.
After a series of mishaps, Leia is captured by Trioculus' guards and brought to his factory on the planet and Ken is captured by Zorba. When Zorba learns that his son's murderer is in the custody of Trioculus he proposes a trade. Trioculus, however, won't give up his queen, and although has his stormtroopers ready to aid him, is defeated by Zorba's police force. Ken, however, is able to escape his jailers through a use of a
Jedi mind trickand is reunited with Han. Luke is also able to rescue Leia and all are taken aboard the Millennium Falconbefore Zorba destroys Trioculus' factory. Thinking that Leia was killed, he taunts Trioculus before freezing him in carbonite. The rebels leave the planet with Han wondering if he'll ever be able to ask Leia to marry him.
