Book Description

July 2014 Star Wars - Legends

Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, and Luke Skywalker return in an all-new Star Wars adventure, which will challenge them in ways they never expected—and forever alter their understanding of life and the Force.

When Han and Leia Solo arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover, their aim is just to even up the odds and lay down the law. Then monstrous aliens arrive with a message, and mere threats escalate into violent sabotage with mass fatalities. When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes—and far deadlier consequences.
Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination. Only this time, the Empire is not the enemy. It is a  pair of ruthless geniuses with a lethal ally and a lifelong vendetta against Han Solo. And when the murderous duo gets the drop on Han, he finds himself outgunned in the fight of his life. To save him, and the galaxy, Luke and Leia must brave a gauntlet of treachery, terrorism, and the untold power of an enigmatic artifact capable of bending space, time, and even the Force itself into an apocalyptic nightmare.

Months before the scheduled release of Crucible a lot of news was floating about the interwebs and much of it was quite explosive. Who would have thought that George Lucas, the gatekeeper to the Star Wars franchise would ever sell off his most prized possession, and to Disney too. Well, he did and his decision to do so is what is bringing episodes VII, VIII, and IV. But George's decision to sell off Star Wars was not the only big news to be whispered about, big news was also impacting the literary branch, too. Now that Fate of the Jedi had wrapped up a new layout was to hit readers, and that was to be the end of the large scale series and a reintroduction to stand alones. So, here we are, a new stand alone, so lets delve in.

Over the last few decades Star Wars fans have been exposed to expansive story arcs laid out by The New Jedi Order, The Legacy of the Force, and The Fate of the Jedi. And as one would expect, those books have had quite the impact on the Expanded Universe. But with all large story arcs some loose threads are left dangling in order to open new doors later on, and some are just left dangling. This is where Crucible comes in. The first "Big Three" (Han, Luke, Leia) book since the climatic end of the Fate of the Jedi series attempts to advance some leftover plot points from stories past and also present a fresh new story to boot. But in the end does Crucible deliver what it promised? Well, lets find out.

I must admit that when Crucible was first announced I wasn't all that excited for it. Given Fate of the Jedi had worn me out with its drawn out storylines and pretty lackluster entertainment value, I wasn't all that excited to read another Big Three book, so my expectations were pretty low going in.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Dull i'm afraid 11 Sep 2013
By Richard
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was actually looking forward to this book, but as soon as i noticed how thick the hard back was I felt this sinking feeling start. I mean prices for books are ridiculous as it is but troy denning must be on a paper ration system here. If this book were made into a film it would last about an hour if that! As far as the story goes its not that interesting, exciting or anything really. And for the climatic end that your waiting for its essentially the Star Wars heavy hitters picking out retirement homes for each other, DULL! I don't know what troy denning has been doing lately but he seems to be into writing short, dull and expensive books for the fans to line his pockets for him.

4.0 out of 5 stars odd story line 7 Feb 2014
By Ben
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
bit of a wierd one I thought, read all star wars books so I should know. this reminded me of the first batch of old school tales - crystal star, dark saber, planet of twilight sort of thing, except bang up to date with in the time line. It trundled along OK then got all mystical at the end with out really explaining what the heck was going on. They all got insubstantial but weren't but were.... bad guys were sort of new and out of no where in terms of why have we never heard about them before? Yet everyone esle seemed to know they were geniuses etc, was a bit weird and felt that they had been cobbled together and then chucked in to present a suitable challenge and seemed to take far too long to die
