Han Solo's extraordinary exploits continue in this awesome trilogy. HAN SOLO AT STARS' END Han Solo trusts no one, and does no favors. But when the best illegal ship rebuilder in the galaxy disappears, Han and Chewbacca agree to go after him--after all, the Millennium Falcon needs some very special repairs. Their search pits them against powerful and ruthless enemies out to destroy them, and finally leads them to an airless speck of desolate asteroid--the Authority prison planet known as Stars' End. HAN SOLO'S REVENGE For a cool ten thousand credits, Han and Chewbacca will do just about anything--except transport slaves. For one thing, it means an instant death sentence. So when a high-paying cargo shipment turns out to be a consignment of slaves, Han and Chewie have to think fast. But Han forms a plan to turn the tables on the slavers and free the captives. Then, good deed accomplished, he scours the skies for the nasty joker who set him up--because revenge can be so sweet. HAN SOLO AND THE LOST LEGACY There's a fabled treasure at stake and a price on Han's head. So he and Chewbacca head for a planet rumored to hide undreamedof riches. But once they get there, Han's beloved spacecraft, the Millennium Falcon, is hijacked by a band of assassins and killer robots. Their chances for survival are so slim, they might as well risk it all.… (more)

Unfortunately, I couldn't finish it. The story was a bit dry and predictable. In addition, it really didn't feel much like Star Wars. ( )

"The Free-Flight Dance Dome was a first-class trough. It was equipped with a top-of-the-line gravity field, its console visible among the bottles, spigots, and taps, and other paraphernalia encircled by the bar. The field permitted the management to alter gravity anywhere on the premises, and so the dance floor and the dome over it had become a low-gee acrobatic playground in which singles, couples, and groups looped, floated, and spun with effortless grace. Han also spotted individual booths and tables where species from low-gravity worlds were taking their ease in comfort, the specific gravity of their area having been lowered for them."

I'm sorry, book. It's not you, book, it's me.

This promised fun but instead the story got lost on me. I just could not get interested in it.
It was all: gun smuggling, blah, blah, battle scene, blah, blah, quipping with female, blah, blah, getting attached to droid, blah blah...

I have no idea what I read. However, I am putting this down to the fact that sci-fi just is not my bag. At all. Not interested.

This edition contains three stories / books, but I only read At Stars' End, as part of a bingo challenge. ( )

A fun read with lots of action; this action is described in such detail that it's as if the book is trying to make you literally see it like a movie. ( )

I liked these stories well enough. I don't have much experience reading the Star Wars EU books, so I can't judge these stories as compared to the rest. I felt these were solid, yet run of the mill adventure stories. The biggest (and some may say only) thing they have going for them is Han Solo. He is pretty close to how I think he should be portrayed in the book, with no major out of character moments that I can recall.

I'll give it 3 stars because it wasn't anything special but I still enjoyed reading them. ( )
