Summary

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.

Critic reviews

"David Pittu ably narrates the third installment of a Han Solo trilogy over a discreet use of sound and music from the films." ( AudioFile)

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole trilogy 👍

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

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

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!

Awful chop job of a good book.

Would you try another book from A. C. Crispin and/or David Pittu?

Yes, only if unabridged. Not my favorite narrator.

Has Star Wars turned you off from other books in this genre?

no

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Pittu?

yes

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Star Wars?

none

Any additional comments?

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.

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.

Disney is killing Star Wars

Whatever Disney is doing to the franchise they need to stop! This book series is how the movie should have been. Why did Disney get rid of the Bria character she was really important to the entire Star Wars timeline. Also why weren't the Hutts in the movie another big miss for Disney. This book has Saved Star Wars for me!!!!

Good but short

The story is thrilling and exciting, as is the very talented narrator. What dissapointed me however, is the length of each book that I needed to pay for individually.

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.

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."

Abridged and bad pronunciation

Hate abridged books but it was the only way it was available. I also don't like the fact that the narrator didn't do his homework on pronunciation uncertain popular words and names.
