    When Han and Leia Solo arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover, their aim is just to even up the odds and lay down the law. Then monstrous aliens arrive with a message, and mere threats escalate into violent sabotage with mass fatalities. When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes - and far deadlier consequences. Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination.

    I really like the Books using the Star Wars characters at the age where the Solo's have a grandchild and Luke's son is now a Jedi. The story is fast paced and Marc Thompson always does a great job with the Audio. All Star Wars serious readers will enjoy this piece of the Tale.

    Times are desperate for the Rebel Alliance. Harassment by the Empire and a shortage of vital supplies are hindering completion of a new secret base on the ice planet Hoth. So when Mid Rim merchants offer much-needed materials for sale, Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo lead an Alliance delegation to negotiate a deal. But when treachery forces the rebel ship to flee into territory controlled by pirates, Leia makes a shocking discovery: The fierce marauders come from Leia's homeworld of Alderaan, recently destroyed by the Death Star.

    Story

    This story is a fast paced duel between Leia and her enemies no doubts on that and the building tension between Han and Leia is really fun. Neither one knows how to handle the other. An all around good story. I do wish the maybe last third was a little more in depth making a longer story but staying with the depth of the 1st half . I did the audiobook and January LaVoy is an excellent story teller. I wasn't sure about her voice for Han Solo but I gave it a chance and after awhile I was into it, I would love to hear a story with LaVoy voicing the Female Characters and Marc Thompson doing the male, and they can split everything that doesn't fit under male or female. anyway defiantly recommend this book. creative and well written.

    The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat. The brutal extermination of Alderaan not only demonstrated the magnitude of their murderous power, but served as a chilling testament to their resolve to crush the Rebel uprising. Standing against them, Skywalker, Solo, and the Princess remain uncertain opponents. Luke is gifted and brave, but unschooled in the power he possesses.

    Never Miss A Zahn Book. Like the different view of these storm troopers. Add in the Emperor's Hand plus Princess Leia Waiting tables in a cafe and well you have a must read.

    Tatooine - a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

    Set in the time Kenobi was watching the young Luke on Tatooine. Meet characters we have only glimpsed in the past. Really enjoyed the book and Marc Thompson always does a great job with SW audio books but his Kenobi is perfect. Don;t miss this story.

    On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy. Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency.

    Finding out details of Jedi History and details about Tython the planet with the earliest Jedi temples was really interesting. Also how the Jedi "Rangers" operated was cool. I am glad to recommend this book
