    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.

    Pamela says: "Good trio swan song Novel! Had some story issues"
    "Fairly strong finish for the Expanded Universe"

    What did you love best about Crucible: Star Wars?

    A good standalone novel that brings in elements from across the Star Wars Expanded Universe - reading the other books (and watching related video) will enrich your experience of the story while tie-ins you don't immediately recognize will still stand on their own. Vital elements for a conclusive story.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Not so much the narrator as the overall performance could have cut back on the sound effects. While they sometimes do their intended task of enriching the experience, they ended up doing more distracting than enriching, for me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The ultimate conclusion to the adventures Han, Luke, and Leia started in A New Hope!


    Any additional comments?

    The amount of time and focus spent on the visceral experience of injury seemed to have a disconnect with the cinematic experience presented by most Star Wars stories.
