He was a child without a past, a Corellian street urchin, abandoned, foraging for scraps of food, when the cruel Garris Shrike whisked him away to join a nomadic band of space-faring criminals. Now, years later, chafing under Shrike's sadistic tyranny, driven by dreams of adventure and glory, Han fights his way free. His goal: to become an Imperial Navy pilot. But first he needs hands-on experience flying spacecraft, and for that he takes a job on the planet Ylesia - a steaming world of religious fanaticism and alluring sensuality, where dreams are destroyed and escape is impossible.

    " I really enjoyed this trilogy and recommend it to anyone who likes Star Wars. Even if you just like sci-fi you'll probably enjoy this story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ross | 2/9/2014

    " Absolutely, positively fantastic!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 2/6/2014

    " That was a lot of fun. I got the book through the library as a test of its ebook lending. I was a little surprised at how quickly I got sucked in. But then Han Solo was always my favorite from the original film trilogy. Not sure I'll get into the whole expanded universe but I think I'll finish this trilogy. Crispin does a great job of capturing Solo. Hard not to picture a young Harrison Ford! A slight fault might be that Muuurgh and Bria where just a little too close to Chewie and Leia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 2/3/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Adkinson | 1/15/2014

    " I was not sure if I would like a SW book without jedi/sith involvement, this book showed me I could!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 1/15/2014

    " 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. "

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

    " If you are a Han Solo fan like me.... Then tis series is a must read ! Great background into the childhood of SW's favourite scoundrel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Lloyd | 11/28/2013

    " Good book. Looking forward to part 2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Cranmer | 11/26/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 10/30/2013

    " I wasn't expecting this to be as much of a romance novel as it was! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hector | 10/4/2013

    " Excited about reading this one! I'm finally starting to delve into the stories of the Original Trilogy characters. I've read the first two chapters, and it's already got me hooked! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Agranoff | 7/5/2013

    " What Can I say it's a Han Solo novel. I had fun reading it, I didn't expect anything besides entertainment and Crispin is a great storyteller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassa | 12/30/2012

    " Han Solo's my favorite Star Wars character, so I jumped on this chance to learn more about his past. These books flesh out his story and make him even more of a lovable character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg Lindsay | 12/3/2012

    " A.C. Crispin proves her talent for spinning a tale. Pretty good book, a wonderful look into Solo's young life. In a way young Solo reminds me of a young Duncan Idaho from the Dune: House of Atreides book by Kevin J Anderson. I had trouble putting this one down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mirrordance | 8/29/2012

    " Racconto parallelo che racconta la storia di Han Solo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 5/6/2012

    " I know, it's a Star Wars book. Pablum, but totally enjoyable. Great for a weekend brain candy ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 2/15/2012

    " A very good read! Suprisingly touching for an old Star Wars fan like myself. I had to keep reminding myself that Han had to end up with Princess Leia in the end and that was okay. Felt so bad for him as a kid! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wolfclaw | 9/23/2011

    " The first book to the Han Solo Trilogy. It was interesting to know the adventures of Han's history, and how he met Chewy(2nd book) "

  • 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. "

  • 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. "
