Here is the explosive conclusion of the blockbuster trilogy that chronicles 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.

The Millennium Falcon is "the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy."  So when Han Solo wins it in a game of sabacc, he and Chewbacca become kings of the smugglers--uncatchable, unstoppable.  But with the Empire clamping down, Han knows his luck can't last.  Still, when an old girlfriend who is now the leader of an insurgent Rebel group offers him a shot at an incredible fortune, Han can't resist.  The plan seems a sure thing.  The resistance will be light and the take enormous.  Han and his friends will divide it equally with the Rebels.  Too bad for Han that the planet of Ylesia is far from a pushover, that the Rebels have an agenda of their own, and that smuggler friends can often turn into enemies...quicker than lightspeed.

    " Loved it! Now I want to go watch the movies.....the good 3, not the other 3..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 2/12/2014

    " a good story telling the youth and difficulties of han's life and loves, how he was a poor boy picked by a smuggler and trained to steal and beg, then learning how to fly and winning many races, he makes friends and finds inspiration to have a better life, leaves the home he knows at the death of his friend, a wookie, he finds employment with a hutt to find that they are snaring people to work as slaves.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Callista | 2/11/2014

    " For the most part, a crackin' good adventure; but I had some qualms about the way Crispin chose to tie the plot directly to the plot of the film (Star Wars Ep. IV, A New Hope). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Corwin | 1/22/2014

    " A.C. Crispin writes as well as George Lucas tells stories after he set down Joseph Campbell's books. I like Han Solo, but as far as I'm concerned this piece of fan-fiction isn't much better than some of the otaku crap I've read in anime fan bulletin boards. It was tedious, plodding through this trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/15/2014

    " I like how this tied in so neatly with the start of the films but didn't spend too much time doing it - the book stands on its own and doesn't simply rehash other material. I enjoyed the perhaps obvious use of the familiar phrases characters are known to use in the films too. This was good enough to interest me in reading more work by AC Crispin, and also more stories in the Star Wars line (this was my introduction to this sub-genre). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard Houchin | 1/13/2014

    " 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 Athena Braun | 1/9/2014

    " Han wins his dream ship-The Millenium Falcon, an old girlfriend double crosses him, he loses a friend over a misunderstanding, and Jabba the hutt is angry at him..Everything after Han's win pretty much goes downhill for him..kinda of depressing hence 3 stars...The Hutt Gambit was much better.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wolfclaw | 12/31/2013

    " A great and final ending to the trilogy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brendan | 12/5/2013

    " Like the previous book, this could have been better told with short stories than an entire novel, especially the parts that were specifically about Han. I felt the other story that encompassed the novel fairly tedious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hector | 11/15/2013

    " The last two chapters and the epilogue lead into Episode IV perfectly. These had to be my favorite part of the book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 11/3/2013

    " Han Solo before Star Wars IV; dovetails with the older Han Solo Trilogy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed Nemo | 10/16/2013

    " A good finish to the series that runs right into A New Hope. I really liked the Boba Fett and Hutt depictions in the book and Han and Chewie were awesome as always. A great finish to Han's backstory. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissabot George | 8/9/2013

    " Terrible story, terrible characters, terrible everything. Never touched another Star Wars expanded universe anything ever again. Keep in mind that I read this way back in high school and I hated it even then. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ross | 11/26/2012

    " A fantastic end to a truly remarkable series. I wish Crispin, Zahn and Traviss could all tag-team the Star Wars novels and just ditch the other writers altogether. An absolutely outstanding book in all respects. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark H | 10/29/2012

    " Loved this book. It, along with the prior two, help to lay the ground work for Who Han Solo is and how his life was shaped. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Swords | 9/11/2012

    " A good conclusion to an excellent trilogy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 8/25/2012

    " Hahaha...I finished the Han Solo trilogy on May the 4th. Win. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 5/22/2012

    " This is the only Star Wars book I've read, and I loved every word of it! Han is even sexier in my imagination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 3/1/2012

    " The last in the trilogy is the best. Perhaps that is because Han goes away for a large section of the book and it is mostly about the Hutts?! I liked the action near the end and there is a gruesome Hutt fight scene! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 7/28/2011

    " A decent end to a mediocre trilogy. I like that it ends right before where we first see Han Solo in the movie. The best parts of the whole series were the cameos and the beginnings of the Rebel Alliance. "

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

    " Loved this book. It, along with the prior two, help to lay the ground work for Who Han Solo is and how his life was shaped. "

"

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel | 7/12/2010

    " This is a great book. Tells the story of how Han Solo gets the falcon millennium and ends up messing up with Jabba.
    Second star wars novel I read, and on the top best of all. "

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

    " han solo and chewbacca are the best characters from the star wars universe. all you boba fett people out there can be as lame as you want- han can kick boba's ass any day of the week. "

    This book leads up to the hour when Han meets with Luke and Obi-wan in the cantina. "
