Here is the second novel in the blockbuster new trilogy that reveals the never-before-told story of the young Han Solo.  Set before the Star Wars(r) movie adventures, these books chronicle the coming-of-age of the galaxy's most famous con man, smuggler and thief.

Solo is now a fugitive from the Imperial Navy.  But he has made a valuable friend in a former Wookiee slave named Chewbacca, who has sworn Han a  life debt.  Han will need all the help he can get.  For the Ylesian Hutts have dispatched the dreaded bounty hunter Boba Fett to track down the man who already outsmarted them once.  But Han and Chewie find themselves in even bigger trouble when they agree to lend their services to the crime lords Jiliac and Jabba the Hutt.  Suddenly the two smugglers are thrust into the middle of a battle between the might of the Empire and the treachery of their outlaw allies...a battle where even victory means death!

    " a good follow up and very enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AJ | 2/6/2014

    " The Hutt Gambit was a fun read for anyone interested in the Star Wars universe. It was not a literary masterpiece, but it was a fun read. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the history everyone's favorite smuggler Han Solo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed Nemo | 2/3/2014

    " Thrown out of the Imperial Academy, meeting Chewbacca, working for Hutts, and fighting the Empire. An excellent take on Han Solo that fleshes out some of the most important albeit never seen portions of his life. Looking forward to starting the 3rd book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 2/2/2014

    " This, like the first novel in this series, was a lot of fun to read. This was not as crisp as the first, but had some exciting battle scenes. It also introduces you to several well-known characters from the movies and how Han meets them (including the Millenium Falcon). Great summer time, fun read. I'm tempted to pop A New Hope into the DVD player. "

    " i know now what the beg deal is with the kessel run "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 1/26/2014

    " If you love Star Wars, this trilogy is essential. You see Han go from a starving orphan to the guy he becomes in the original Saga. You also learn how he met Chewie, Lando and Jabba (not to mention a wonderful cast of misfits that never made it to the screen). LOVE THIS! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph | 1/26/2014

    " Boy did I really want to give it a 4 star, but couldn't. This book introduces Chewy and have some more adventures for Han as he moves up in the world with smuggling and his connections with Jabba the Hutt. The Hutts story line is pretty good and there is an Imperial battle at the end. What I didn't like was the last 60 pages or so where it was a little too much Ra Ra for my liking. It was just like everyone was saying "Yeah" and "Alright," etc. It was just blah to me. This guys are smugglers and they come across as cheerleaders. Also they introduce Lando to the story and how they came to konw each other. There was a little too much "Old Buddy" or "hey buddy" or "old pal," which got annoying. Overall pretty good, I just hoped it wasn't so wishing washing towards the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassa | 1/20/2014

    " From what I recall, this is the point in the trilogy where we get just a touch more of a connection between Han's childhood and his connections to the Trilogy universe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill Jacobs | 1/19/2014

    " The first encounter between Chewbacca and Han Solo cleverly scratched the dawn of the Rebel Alliance. Also, Boba Fett's first bounty capture attempt on Han Solo packed with action! Can't say it's not my favorite Star Wars book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 11/29/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Callista | 11/12/2013

    " An enjoyable read. I like the way Crispin develops Han's character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wayne | 11/7/2013

    " While this installment of the series was not as gripping as the first, it was nice to see emerging events that lead to the original Star Wars movie. Plus, Boba Fett adds a star to the review just by showing up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Cameron | 10/31/2013

    " You know when you are reading a good book when you don't know where the story is going but you want to go along anyways because you are having too much fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corwin | 4/14/2013

    " I wouldn't be reading it if it weren't about Han Solo, and that's about all I can say about the matter. It's a literary equivalent to the disastrous results of the new Star Wars prequels, only better insofar as there's actually some small depth to the characters in the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miguel Galy | 3/12/2013

    " More great stories of Han Solo! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mirrordance | 12/24/2012

    " Nulla di che. Han Solo incontra per la prima volta Chewbacca,Lando e Darth Vader. Racconto molto meno avvincente del precedente ci racconta il passato di Han Solo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cooper | 12/10/2012

    " Another great star wars story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Foster | 1/1/2012

    " I loved this series. Learning the origins of Han Solo from when he was a young boy up until he walked into the cantina on Tatooine. A must read for any Star Wars fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Lloyd | 11/26/2011

    " Awesome book! So much better than the first one in the series. Can't wait to read the conclusion to the trilogy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 6/16/2011

    " All I can say is the Hutts would give any modern gangsters a run for their money. "
