4.0 out of 5 stars Han flying not quite so Solo
I enjoyed reading this book a lot more than I thought I would. The book is not quite written from Han's first person perspective, but he is in every scene of the book. As much as this book is about Han, the authors have also used it introduce their own character into the Star Wars universe, Scarlet Hark super spy, so much so that she even has her own 5 page mini story at...

3.0 out of 5 stars A romp rather than interesting read
A little disappointing after the quality 'expanse' series from this author as the writing style is totally different (almost as if he's writing for a younger audience)
Having said that I ploughed through this quickly and fans of the genre should enjoy it well enough. Enjoyed reading about Chewbacca probably more than any of the other characters in the book and it was...

4.0 out of 5 stars Han flying not quite so Solo, 24 Mar. 2014

I enjoyed reading this book a lot more than I thought I would. The book is not quite written from Han's first person perspective, but he is in every scene of the book. As much as this book is about Han, the authors have also used it introduce their own character into the Star Wars universe, Scarlet Hark super spy, so much so that she even has her own 5 page mini story at the end of the book.

It is set very early after a New Hope. Always being a rebel without a cause, Han has a difficult time adjusting to now having a cause and the responsibilities that go along with it especially orders, seemingly from everyone. Han is working with the rebels on a consultancy bases. This does not ingratiate him to the higher up in the Alliance. Who see his as a money grabbing scoundrel who is dirtying the Rebels reputation through association with him. However nobody can argue with results and when a dangerous mission comes up to extract a high level rebel spy from an Imperial core world, guess whose name come name comes up.

On planet side Han get to show off his own investigative skills, and that fact that Han is not bad in a fight not just with a blaster either. Han get a reminder of what the Rebels are fighting for when he see how "ordered" the core world is. If you are a Chewie fan you might be a bit disappointed as (probably to give Han more time on his own) Chewie spends a lot of time on the Falcon repairing stuff or hiding as Wookees are not all that common in the Core worlds.

Han also runs into some old associates and smugglers in general. Causing a recurring theme, of how he might have become if a crazy old man and a dumb farm boy did not come into his life. As this book is so soon after the New Hope Han does not have an unlimited budget for repairing the Falcon and has to do most of the repairs between him and Chewie themselves. The attraction angle between him and is hinted at and even called by Scarlet, but Han covers it with his usual bravado. Also Leia does not know Han as well as she does by the Empire Strikes Back, so she is surprised by Hans loyally to his friends and his philosophies. We also see another side of Leia as well which has not been shown as much, the leader making hard choices with soldiers’ lives.

A good book, which shows some of the seeds of transition Han went through from a smuggler to a commander to a prominent member of the Rebel Alliance. Also if James S. a. Corey have their way we might be seeing more of Scarlet Hark in other stories.

The whole book is about scarlet hark, scarlet did this, scarlet did that. It wears thin very quickly.
Otherwise it's a decent addition to the eu
