Here is the explosive conclusion of the blockbuster trilogy that chronicles the never-before-told story of the young Han Solo. Set before the Star Wars movie adventures, these books chronicle the coming of age of the galaxy's most famous con man, smuggler, and thief.
The Millennium Falcon is "the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy". So when Han Solo wins it in a game of sabacc, he and Chewbacca become kings of the smugglers: uncatchable, unstoppable. But with the Empire clamping down, Han knows his luck can't last. Still, when an old girlfriend who is now the leader of an insurgent Rebel group offers him a shot at an incredible fortune, Han can't resist. The plan seems a sure thing. The resistance will be light and the take enormous. Han and his friends will divide it equally with the Rebels.
Too bad for Han that the planet Ylesia is far from a pushover, that the Rebels have an agenda of their own, and that smuggler friends can often turn into enemies...quicker than light speed.

"David Pittu ably narrates the third installment of a Han Solo trilogy over a discreet use of sound and music from the films." (AudioFile)
I am a massive Star Wars fan and am steadily workinh my way through the novels. I have enjoyed most of them and the new characters they bring to life but I really enjoyed there book. Having some background to both Han and Chewie has answered a few questions and has been very enjoyable.
Conclusion to trilogy that is a good back story to central character though the trilogy lacked some of the traditional wit and humour that we have come to expect from Han Solo. Nonetheless a satisfying end to the trilogy
"Awful chop job of a good book."
Yes, only if unabridged. Not my favorite narrator.
I would really like my money back. Just awful.
"would have been better unabridged"
I have read the book and listened to the audiobook. I was disappointed with the abridgement. While the performance was excellent the story lost something from the extra bits taken out. Some of the moments missing were my favorites when I read the book.
"UNABRIDGED NOW PLEASE"
Ok I get that some people don't have time to listen to a 16 or so hour audiobook, but it's really annoying when you can only figure out that its abridged at the very end of the third book! I want my money back for paying for something I didn't want abridged!
"Good but not a fan of the sound effects"
I like the story, not a fan of the sound effects. It seems that the produced all of the Han Solo trilogy this way.
"Good Book, But Dislike Abridgment"
This, like all of the Star Wars books needs to be redone unabridged! Too much left out of the story.
"Right up to,..."
This book is a perfect background of Han Solo and the best of the three. It explains his inability to love a woman, as well as his background with Jabba the Hut and Lando. And it brings you right up to...."the old man and the farmer boy in the cantina."
"The story behind the story"
An interesting tail. The abridged from of this book definitely hertz it. still a good book for rush hour drive.
