Merciless attacks by an invincible alien force have left the New Republic reeling. Dozens of worlds have succumbed to occupation or annihilation, and even the Jedi Knights have tasted defeat. In these darkest of times, the noble Chewbacca is laid to rest, having died as heroically as he lived. A grief-stricken Han Solo is left to fit the pieces of his shattered soul back together before he loses everything: friends, family, and faith.

Refusing help from Leia or Luke, Han becomes the loner he once was, seeking to escape the pain of his partner's death in adventure...and revenge. When he learns that an old friend from his smuggling days is operating as a mercenary for the enemy, he sets out to expose the traitor. But Han's investigation uncovers an even greater evil: a sinister conspiracy aimed at the very heart of the New Republic's will and ability to fight.

Now Han must face down his inner demons and, with the help of a new and unexpected ally, honor Chewbacca's sacrifice in the only way that matters - by being worthy of it.

    " This book is pretty much the reason why I'm so behind on the Star Wars EU after years of reading it up to date. I actually can't believe it's been a decade since this came out. It's not terrible, but it just couldn't hold my interest. So I'd dropped it for years before coming back to it (I'm not even sure if it was this volume or the second that I actually paused on. I found myself reading the other stories that came out instead, like Zahn's Outbound Flight and so on. Somehow, I made it through them, and am now stuck on Balance Point, which has also been in the middle for years. I'm just not meant to enjoy the NJO. "

    " Solid read. Good character progression as Han finally starts to come to terms with the death of Chewbacca. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morelos Barros | 10/13/2013

    " This was a really nice Han Solo adventure. This book alone has a way better story than the 3 precuels together. James Luceno does a very good job. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corey | 10/7/2013

    " Out of the NJO books up to this point this one was my favorite. It was so good to have Han back in the mix! "

    " My free reading book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 8/13/2013

    " I enjoyed this one. Han's grief seemed very real and I found Droma the Ryn entertaining--plus, unlike Chewie, we get to hear Droma's dialouge and not just Han's responses to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Schmidt | 7/14/2013

    " I really liked the focus on Han during this duology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randal | 6/2/2013

    " Not a single light saber was used in this story. And it still turned out good! "

    " Post later "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsey | 9/15/2011

    " This one doesn't mesh very well with the rest of the SW universe or New Jedi Order series, but it's still necessary for the series continuation. Recommended only to Star Wars fans who want to make sure to read every book in the New Jedi Order series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 9/14/2011

    " So far I think NJO straight up sucks. It's good to have Han back. I found this slightly more interesting than the Dark Tide books as we actually get a bit more into the motivations and technique of the enemy. Who are still boring as [fill in the blank]. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DC | 8/16/2011

    " Second time reading it - I upgraded it to a C from a D. See more under Jedi Eclipse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brendan | 7/30/2011

    " I am enjoying the New Jedi Order series more and more. I thought this was a great way to begin resolving issues brought up in previous novels, while leaving plenty of room for future development and ambiguity. Looking forward to the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeroen | 10/23/2010

    " Although nice to read something about other characters than the Jedi in this universe... I do want to read something about the Jedi..., that's why I like Star Wars remember....?! Way to little plot concerning the Jedi... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 10/24/2008

    " Enjoyed this one, but it was more of a Han Solo adventure, and you'd need to know what and where he's coming from. So reading these series in order made this story a good side story so far, not sure how this is going to affect the whole picture. I look forward to reading the next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Petra X | 7/17/2008

    " This book shows the absolute genius imaginations of those involved in setting up these alternative world and reality films. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meadow | 1/18/2008

    " this book tells about all the diffrent characters, robots, and places of star wars III. It shows, the different parts of the droids, the mechanics of Anakins fake hand and padme's gorgeous outfits. "

    " Not a star wars fan but the pictures and infos are pretty interesting and made me learn more about star wars. [oh my cousins, always making me read star wars books] "
