Publisher's Summary

Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, and Luke Skywalker return in an all-new Star Wars adventure, which will challenge them in ways they never expected - and forever alter their understanding of life and the Force.

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. Only this time, the Empire is not the enemy. It is a pair of ruthless geniuses with a lethal ally and a lifelong vendetta against Han Solo. And when the murderous duo gets the drop on Han, he finds himself outgunned in the fight of his life. To save him, and the galaxy, Luke and Leia must brave a gauntlet of treachery, terrorism, and the untold power of an enigmatic artifact capable of bending space, time, and even the Force itself into an apocalyptic nightmare.

    Story
    "Strong Start, Finish seemed weak"

    I know most of the expanded universe has gone on pause now that Disney owns Stars, and I have been an avid follower since the Thrawn Trilogy. This story started out great, I loved having the old gang back together again. Yet the lack of conclusion of Merta Gev and Vastara does leave me, the reader dissatisfied.

    Story
    "A great performance of a mediocre at best story. "

    As usual, Marc Thompson does a phenomenal job with what he is given. That being said, the story was pretty mediocre. Many of the characters were shallow and unexplored. The story was convoluted and nonsensical at times. The story, which is based on villains of incalculable brilliance lacked any cleverness or complex thought. The Columi are supposed to be genius beyond measure, yet an ewok would give them a run for their money. The monument was practically inconsequential, the story probably would have been improved without it at all. The biots were interesting, but nothing more than beefed up clones. As far as star wars one shots go, it was OK, but as far as star wars books go, there's about a dozen I would instantly recommend before it.

    "Marc Thompson makes these books great!"

    The story was good however, Marc does such a great job making up for any shortcomings in the story. It's hard to listen to other Star Wars books narrated by other people.

    This was a very good recording that took me back with the unforgettable characters of the first Star Wars series and carried me along with them into their adventures.

    Story
    "An amazing ending to a galaxy of stories!"
    Where does Crucible: Star Wars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely a 5 out of 5! I love all things Star Wars and and really enjoyed the conclusion to Luke, Han and Leah's journey.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    You can't love just one character in this story. The whole cast is great!


    Have you listened to any of Marc Thompson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Marc Thompson is the Star Wars god! He nails every character on the money! Luke, Lando and even Han Solo. An amazing voice actor.


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

    Witness the final battle of the galaxy's greatest heroes!


    Any additional comments?

    The new Star Wars books are pretty good, a few misses along the way, but still decent. Though if they don't satisfy your Star Wars hunger, I'm glad that there's a whole galaxy of original stories to look back on.

    Story
    "I wish they would write a sequel."
    What did you love best about Crucible: Star Wars?

    I loved the characters. Marc Thompson brings them to life like a god breathing into mud sculptures.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Vestara Khai. I wish Ben Skywalker would just marry her. But now we will never know since Disney will not make a sequel.


    What about Marc Thompson’s performance did you like?

    Everything. He is by far the best narrator out of any book ever. Of course, all the epic sound affects do help.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The lightsaber fights.


    Any additional comments?

    It felt like a natural sequel to the fate of the jedi series.
