This was a great story focusing on Han and Chewbacca's adventures. Set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Leia sent Han and Chewie (not Han's idea) on a mission to retrieve a friend of the rebellion. Great action packed book. Awesome! ( )

This was a cute little story. I like seeing books with Chewie in them. I wouldn't mind reading more books with adventures of just Han and Chewie. ( )

Han and Chewie do a "favor" for Leia. What could possibly go wrong?

In this taut Star Wars tale, (taking place just after a New Hope), Princess Leia needs Hon Solo and Chewie to go on a special mission. Hon is not part of the rebellion, and is more anxious in paying off the debts owed to Jabba the Hutt.

Lieutenant Ematt is a leader of the Shrikes, and is the only one in charge of recon for the rebellion. He knows all of the rendezvous points, and where weapons, food and medicine are stored. After an ambush by the Imperial Security on Taanab, Ematt managed to escape and is fleeing to the planet Cyrkon where he is expected to be rescued, but the Imperial Security is hot on his tail! The Millennium Falcon is the only ship fast enough to reach Cyrkon before it is too late.

The planet is on the outer rim, and deep in Hutt territory. Danger would be coming at Solo and Chewie from all sides. For the right price, he finally agrees to help.

This is a classic Solo & Chewie adventure. Littered with fun humor, and harrowing escapes, I plowed through the book in hours. Great action, and terse banter made the entire book just plain fun to read! Highly recommend it to fans of Star Wars novels!

I wasn't going to try to read all of the Journey to the Force Awakens releases, and then it just kinda happened because I couldn't contain myself.

Despite the YA label and slim size this was a pretty enjoyable and satisfactory read. Similar to Slow Bullets which was released earlier this year, it was refreshing to read a full story without any bloat.

The framing story takes place somewhere between ROTJ and TFA. It features an older Han Solo telling a few young bucks about the good old days, which happen to have occurred between ANH and ESB. This book was enjoyable because, like many of the other books in the new canon, it is easy to imagine it happening in the Star Wars universe. Han's lines flow like Harrison Ford and his and Chewie's hi-jinks feel totally in character.

The only annoying thing about this book is having to wait until December to see what hints are contained within it. ( )
