A trade summit on Corellia brings Han Solo back to the home planet he left many years before. Arriving on the distant planet with Leia, their children, and Chewbacca, Han finds Corellia overrun with agents of the New Republic Intelligence and finds himself part of a deceptive plan whose aim not even he understands. One thing is clear: the five inhabited worlds of the sector are on the brink of civil war, and the once peaceful co-existence of the three leading species - human, Selonian, and Drallan - has come to an end.

Suddenly all that Han, Leia, and others of the Alliance have fought for is threatened. As jammerships block all communication with Luke Skywalker and the outside universe, Han and Leia find themselves trapped on a world about to explode in violence unless they can meet a fanatical rebel leader's impossible demands.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ari | 2/19/2014

    " Yet another fun series, where the Solo kids run amok. We learn more about Han's family, Sal-Solo, and a family feud ensues. Decent quality writing, and a nice story line. This book is recommended as a must read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 2/17/2014

    " I couldn't get through it...and believe me, I tried. I found the writing style dull, and the story completely unengaging. The main characters were bland wallpaper, compared to their depiction in other novels in the series. A great pity, as I would have enjoyed a more thorough exploration of Han Solo's home planet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 2/4/2014

    " Good book. Not fantastic, but it was enjoyable. I'd recommend it to Star Wars fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrickderaaff | 2/2/2014

    " Everybody seems to be heading for Corellia. Might they be walking into an ambush??? Not a bad story really, but things take too long to build. We'll see what happens next in part 2 of this trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/23/2014

    " Considering what happens to the Solo and Skywalker families in the future, it is nice to read a series back when things seemed a lot simpler. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Koch | 1/13/2014

    " Good Read...if you don't mind some Star Wars backstory like Chewie is Han's side kick becuase Chewie owes him a life debt for freeing him from slavery. That comment was like a 7 on the geek radar. But still an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/11/2014

    " I really do like the Corellian Trilogy. It's a lot of fun and has some mystery to it. It's probably my third favorite Star Wars trilogy set after Return of the Jedi (first would by Thrawn, second would be Jedi Academy). My only problem was that I remember listening to this book on tape (sorry, is it called audio books now?...it used to be on tape back in the day), and all I wanted to was listen to the tape version because it was done really well. Sigh. I guess if that's my only problem, then this book--this series really--is very well done. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 1/10/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Lindsay | 11/10/2013

    " Not a bad story, worth a read through. The Q9-X2 droid was great. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Aaron | 10/29/2013

    " This stopped me reading SW books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffrey | 10/18/2013

    " One of the better "early" Star Wars books, focused on the main characters from the original trilogy. An interesting setup for the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wesley | 10/2/2013

    " I've read worse. I liked Corellia and fleshing that system out a bit. The Solo family tie-ins were a bit too convenient, but I can let things slide. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 9/15/2013

    " I don't understand why the Star Wars writers can't create a decent original character that's likable and believable. Also, none of them so far have written the Solo children very well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominic | 8/9/2013

    " Han solo is just kick ass. This is basically blade runner with a different name. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noel | 6/15/2013

    " one of the better star wars books! i'll go as far as saying, my 5th favorite (after New Rebellion and the Thrawn trilogy) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bradley | 3/10/2013

    " Not too bad. An excellent addition to the Star Wars universe. One last note, I found at least twenty typos which disrupted the storyflow for me. =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 3/2/2013

    " The Corellian Trilogy is pretty decent. It has a little different feel than the normal Expanded Universe stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 8/19/2012

    " What I remember: Thracken Sal-Solo, Centerpoint Station, cute little Solo kiddies. (Namely Anakin, who I will always love more than the twins.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 10/17/2011

    " Good ending. Loved the trilogy and thought it was not only entertaining, but had some interesting plot twists that were believable. Could have developed the villains better I think. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark Noce | 10/2/2011

    " An okay Han Solo story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzy | 9/12/2011

    " Yes, sometimes I read Star Wars books..... Now, there are good Star Wars books and there are bad Star Wars books. This was one of the bad ones. If you're looking for a good one, get the Han Solo Trilogy by AC Crispin. Those were good Star Wars books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 7/25/2011

    " An action-packed beginning to a classic Star Wars series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 3/24/2011

    " Really this book was only okay, but I'm giving it extra points for it's ability to hold my attention without inducing me to stay up late reading it. Also for nostalgia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 9/29/2010

    " Was a great trilogy, though it was not the strongest finish. I mean it was great that we got through the storyline, and everyone meeting up for a glorious final battle was good, it just felt rushed and like a patched together ending. Still a good trilogy by all accounts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wesley | 6/23/2010

    " I've read worse. I liked Corellia and fleshing that system out a bit. The Solo family tie-ins were a bit too convenient, but I can let things slide. Centerpoint was interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/26/2010

    " A nice conclusion to the trilogy, lots of action. The cameos and dialogue are a plus. I personally particularly liked the Lando Calrissian and Mara Jade plot lines. This series, and especially this particular book, are necessary for later developments in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel2 | 12/22/2009

    " Some of the first books I'd read as a kid. I wonder if they would be so great if I read them now??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noel | 3/30/2009

    " took awhile to get into this one. and i still think ossilege shoulda been a bad guy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 3/6/2009

    " The Corellian Trilogy is pretty decent. It has a little different feel than the normal Expanded Universe stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph | 1/1/2009

    " This was really good. But I was slightly disappointed in who the main antagonist was...but a pretty climatic battle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melkirdin | 11/14/2008

    " ok, I better come straight. the only reason this ain't got a five is the lame ending. it's an amazing book and I love the plot, but the ending could use a little help. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ari | 11/6/2008

    " Yet another fun series, where the Solo kids run amok. We learn more about Han's family, Sal-Solo, and a family feud ensues. Decent quality writing, and a nice story line. This book is recommended as a must read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 4/8/2008

    " Best of the three books in my opinion. A nice conclusion to the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 jessie | 6/7/2007

    " I remember reading this trilogy a few years ago. I wish I didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominic | 4/5/2007

    " You may be asking yourself, why is this guy such a nerd. I have no idea. In walker texas ranger they say one riot one ranger. It's like that with han solo but it's one intergalactic war, one han solo "
