Publisher Description

Here is the second novel in the blockbuster new trilogy that reveals the never-before-told story of the young Han Solo.  Set before the Star Wars(r) movie adventures, these books chronicle the coming-of-age of the galaxy's most famous con man, smuggler and thief.

Solo is now a fugitive from the Imperial Navy.  But he has made a valuable friend in a former Wookiee slave named Chewbacca, who has sworn Han a  life debt.  Han will need all the help he can get.  For the Ylesian Hutts have dispatched the dreaded bounty hunter Boba Fett to track down the man who already outsmarted them once.  But Han and Chewie find themselves in even bigger trouble when they agree to lend their services to the crime lords Jiliac and Jabba the Hutt.  Suddenly the two smugglers are thrust into the middle of a battle between the might of the Empire and the treachery of their outlaw allies...a battle where even victory means death!

Features a bonus section following the novel that includes a primer on the Star Wars expanded universe, and over half a dozen excerpts from some of the most popular Star Wars books of the last thirty years!

The Hutt Gambit

A lot of history behind Han Solo’s past. Definitely worth reading!

Early Han meets Chewie

Part 2 of the Han Solo trilogy sees Han meeting Chewbacca and later lando clarissan, and explains how they became brothers in arms. As good as the first one and cameo's form Baron Fel and Boba Fett make This even more interesting. Crispin still knows how to write Han and all the supporting cast really well.

I'm so glad these Han Solo books are finally available on the iBookstore. I've read them all 4 times now, and have been looking forward to enjoying reading them again on my iPad. Each of the three books is a page turner; something new and exciting happens on every page and I just can't find a place to take a break! And every time, the imagery gets better as I put everything into context. These are my favorite Star Wars books by my favorite Star Wars author. I hope she will write more EU stories!
