Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes he is merely a poor farm boy - until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed.

Now, his choices could save - or destroy - the empire.

The second Death Star has been destroyed, the emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down. Devastating blows against the Empire and major victories for the Rebel Alliance. But the battle for freedom is far from over. As the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance - now a fledgling New Republic - presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy's scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate. But above the remote planet Akiva, an ominous show of the enemy's strength is unfolding.

Though Han Solo has thrilled Star Wars fans for decades, the notorious wisecracking scoundrel was chasing adventure and dodging trouble long before he walked into the cantina at Mos Eisley spaceport. Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as long as he's trapped in a life of poverty and crime - and under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her brutal street gang - reaching the distant stars seems impossible.

It's a fun novel that builds off of the movie. Jokes land more often than they did in the movie and the story is considerably more enjoyable, but... still not that engaging. If you enjoyed the movie at all, than this will be an improvement. I'm the future when I want to revisit Solo: A Star Wars Story (which I will), I think I'll come back to this book rather than the movie.

Brief: I've wanted a cannon novel focusing on the relationship and adventures of Qui gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi for a long time. They finally delivered. I came in with high hopes and expectations... I was satisfied. Hope there's a sequel.
Longer: A lot of Star Wars stories feel remarkably similar. This is not spared from that. It feels quite similar to other cannon novels. In some ways that helps follow the story but also makes a few things predictable. This is more of a gripe then a Major or even minor flaw.
I had fairly high expectations and they weren't exactly met or disappointed. They were satisfied as long as there is another in a couple of years. I would really like to pick this story up in a year or two and see it continued into maybe a trilogy.
It was enjoyable to see glimpses into Dooku and I have a feeling Lucasfilms purposefully lined this up to lead up to their audio drama about Dooku leaving the order. This satisfied me and left me wanting to see more.

Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content. From the ashes of the Empire has arisen another threat to the galaxy’s freedom: the ruthless First Order. Fortunately, new heroes have emerged to take up arms - and perhaps lay down their lives - for the cause.

As a cargo ship rockets across the galaxy to Canto Bight, the deckhands onboard trade stories about legendary Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker. But are the stories of iconic and mysterious Luke Skywalker true or merely tall tales passed from one corner of the galaxy to another? Is Skywalker really a famous Jedi hero, an elaborate charlatan, or even part droid? The deckhands will have to decide for themselves when they hear The Legends of Luke Skywalker.

Listen as a group of kids on a ship tell stories and legends of the great Luke Skywalker! Some are cool. All are fun. And there's a good deal of humor found in most of them.
