With the help of the Vulcan leader T'Pau, Spock gets permission to use the Guardian of Forever, a portal through time constructed by a long-vanished race, to venture into the past. On another trip into history, on the planet Sarpeidon, Spock had loved a woman who could not return with him to the future, and now Spock wishes to see the son she bore him, 5,000 years earlier. But a Romulan attack on the Guardian's planet could interfere, unless the EnterpriseTM can keep the Guardian out of their hands. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 6/4/2011

    " A young Han Solo and the adventures of (and resulting from) his first job as a pilot on Ylesia. Crispin perfectly captures the psyche of the young Solo flawlessly, and by the end of the book you can see how he became the man of the Classic Trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 1/31/2011

    " Oh Han Solo, thank God you were not ruined in 1, 2, and 3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 1/24/2011

    " Loved this book! A great adventure unfolds along with one of the greatest characters in the Star Wars universe. If you're a fan of Star Wars and a fan of Han Solo, you'll want to read this book just to see how it all began. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 11/20/2010

    " Who isn't a fan of Han Solo, the greatest character in the Star Wars Universe. This was his life story - from when he was an orphan living on the streets up to the time he met Luke Skywalker and Ben Kanobi at the Cantina on Mos Eisly. Great Story. Great Trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AJ | 11/18/2010

    " I really enjoyed the early adventures of Han Solo. In this book you learn Han's background and how he became the heroic smuggler we all know and love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 11/5/2010

    " This is the beginning of Han Solo, gives you some background into how he was raised, and what led him to being a pirate. Good story for the fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabriel | 7/12/2010

    " This was a really good read.
    It was nice to know more abbout Han Solo story.
    A bit sad for this guy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 4/9/2010

    " I read a lot of Star Wars novels in Jr. High. It took a few dozen books before I realized many of them just weren't all that stellar. Ah, well, I'll squirrel away the memories on the internet and free up a book shelf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/26/2010

    " A little stunted in flow, but then again I never did like Crispin's writing style. Still a decent read, but not cerebral in the least. Also, some contradictions with the later books' plots, although bringing back a few of the lesser known storylines is a nice touch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 2/6/2010

    " This review will encompass the entire trilogy, but I found these books greatly interesting as Han Solo was not well explained in the films. These books provide an interesting look at what formed the Han Solo we see in ANH. Definitely recommend any Star Wars fan to read this trilogy. "
