star-wars-book-challenge_silver.png898955 Han Solo and the Lost Legacy is the third and final novel of The Han Solo Adventures trilogy, written by Brian Daley. It was released on August 12, 1980. It is a sequel to Han Solo’s Revenge. The whole trilogy was later reprinted on April 22, 1992.

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 undreamed-of 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….

The fabled hoard of the mad tyrant Xim was beyond measure — it was also, as far as Han Solo and his Wookiee partner Chewbacca were concerned, strictly legendary. But the pleadings of an old spacebum who had once saved his life — plus the fact that a trifling misunderstanding had set the deadliest gunman in the galaxy on his trail, making a secret expedition to almost any place seem highly desirable — were enough to grab Han Solo’s interest.

But within hours of landing on the planet rumored to hold the treasure, Han’s beloved spacecraft Millennium Falcon was hijacked, and his party had to contend with assassins and an army of killer robots.

This was no way, Han Solo felt, for a pair of honest smugglers to make a living…

img_20160527_160045.jpgYou know that scar on Han Solo’s chin? Ever wonder where it come from? Well in this book you find out that it was a knife wound he received during a fight with a dockworker on Dellalt. I found myself liking this one a little more than the second book. It also stands alone and could possibly be read out of turn with no worries (which I did by mistake). Daley does a good job at finishing up the story line for Hand Solo and Chewy. Well before the movies at least haha. Feel that Daley really hitting his stride as an author in the Expanded Star Wars Universe in this novel or novels. It can be read as a stand alone adventure story and could make for some good movies *hint hint*.  If you find this book or trilogy READ IT! I never knew this was around till my friend let me borrow them. Now I’m keeping my eyes open for a set for myself ;).HSLostLegacy_art

star-wars-book-challenge_silver.pngSo we have the next novel in the Han Solo Adventures Trilogy Han Solo’s Revenge (Star Wars: The Han Solo Adventures #2) by Brian Daley.

775507For 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 Lurrian 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’s Revenge is the second novel of The Han Solo Adventures trilogy, written by Brian Daley. It was released on October 12, 1979. It is a sequel to Han Solo at Stars’ End and is followed by Han Solo and the Lost Legacy. The whole trilogy was later reprinted on April 22, 1992.

“Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.”

-Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi

So if you want a Han Solo tale that tells it like it was, that offers Han as he was meant to be, Han Solo’s Revenge is for you. And if you think it is better that Greedo shoots first you need to stay away, and I am sorry, but there is no cure for your affliction. Great Humor, quick paced action and memorable characters. What more can you ask for :)? So far I’m really like this Trilogy and it’s nice to have a small peek into universe that George Lucas created. The only problem I have with the book was the ending, because it was rather abrupt and kinda jarring in fact. But over all it’s another fun Star Wars book to read and can’t wait till I start up the third one!

After a string of unsuccessful smuggling ventures in the Corporate Sector, Han Solo and his Wookiee copilot, Chewbacca, quit that part of space. Down on their luck after a botched smuggling run on the Rampa Rapids, Han Solo and Chewbacca found themselves on the planet Kamar, showing holodocumentaries to the natives. They soon realized they weren’t cut out for legitimate work, and found themselves nearly broke, with no prospects in sight. In these dire straits, Han and Chewie accepted a job offer from an anonymous employer to fly blind for a cool ten thousand credits. However, after flying the Millennium Falcon to the planet Lur for the pickup, they discovered that the cargo was a load of slaves—something neither Han nor Chewbacca had any tolerance for. Some fast thinking by their two droids, Bollux and Blue Max, provided the two with an opportunity to turn the tables on the slavers’ attempt to commandeer the Falcon, and escape with both their lives and their ship. As far as Han Solo was concerned, somebody still owed them for their trouble. So they set out to track down the recipients of their intended cargo to get their money one way or another.

13573427To make his biggest score, Han’s ready to take even bigger risks.
But even he can’t do this job solo.

Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han’s got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he’s deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There’s a bounty on Han’s head–and if he can’t cough up the credits, he’ll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king’s ransom. Or maybe a gangster’s fortune? That’s what a mysterious stranger is offering in exchange for Han’s less-than-legal help with a riskier-than-usual caper. The payoff will be more than enough for Han to settle up with Jabba–and ensure he never has to haggle with the Hutts again.

All he has to do is infiltrate the ultra-fortified stronghold of a Black Sun crime syndicate underboss and crack the galaxy’s most notoriously impregnable safe. It sounds like a job for miracle workers…or madmen. So Han assembles a gallery of rogues who are a little of both–including his indispensable sidekick Chewbacca and the cunning Lando Calrissian. If anyone can dodge, deceive, and defeat heavily armed thugs, killer droids, and Imperial agents alike–and pull off the heist of the century–it’s Solo’s scoundrels. But will their crime really pay, or will it cost them the ultimate price?

giphySo think Ocean’s Eleven.. Not the ’50s Rat Pack version with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, rather the George Clooney/Brad Pitt version. I rather enjoyed this novel and had fun reading it for what it was. A lot of people are not fan of this book and pan it as a whole. I found some people saying that there wasn’t any Jedi in the novel or it’s not Star Wars with out the force.. I think they are missing the point to everything and the point of the story. it’s Han Solo! And it’s about him and his friends/crew, not Luke.. Since it takes place between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back , it was really fun to see him echo or foreshadow famous moments and characters. Well written and the plot has lots of twists and turns. It is a fun read and you should check it out!98a4003224f86bdb078c61881e0f30e4d2c34087

I liked it for what it was and happy I read it. Just wasn’t my cup of tea and left me wanting more answers. But if you find yourself a copy I say give it a read.
