Book 2 in the Han Solo Trilogy. The series gets better with each book. I really enjoyed seeing how Han met Chewie and Lando. It was also enlightening to see how Han gains the experience that makes him such a great leader in the Rebellion.
Just the battle of Nar Shaddaa makes this book well worth the read! ( )

Here we get a glimpse of the value Han will bring to the Rebellion as a leader. Plus we get to see the development of his relationship with Jabba the Hutt. ( )

Fun stuff, but the author tried too hard to work in quotes and things from the movies. Too many comments about Han being scruffy and other things. But, it was still a peek into how Han grew up and what made him who he was. ( )

Great to see Han's beginnings in the world of suggling and the start of his friendship w/ Chewie. And to think he wanted him to scram at first :lol: it will make it much more sad when I get to the NJO b/c of the spoiler I know.
I actually enjoyed the Hutt politics. usually that stuff can be boring but Ann know how to write and make it good. I hope Durga find's Aruk's killer (btw I was reading Clone Wars Vol 4 today and Aruk's in it and I was like heeeey! :lol:)
:rotfl: Han's orgasmic reaction to first laying eyes on the Falcon was awesome.
Bria gets small mentions but you get the jist. nothing to drag out. Poor Han when he saw her w/ the Moff. and he was one werid dude. *shivers*
She wrote a good battle scene. I applaude her for that. There's nothing I hate more than a boring drawn out battle scene where I can't visualize what's happening and I am confused.
did not expect a Vader appearance at all and I love the Force choke :D I wonder why he didn't sense Han's hiding in the closet? ( )
