Publisher's Summary

Set before the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story!

Han and Qi'ra don't have a lot in common other than not having a lot. They're street kids on the industrial planet Corellia, doing whatever it takes to get by, dreaming of something more. They each jump at a chance to prove themselves in the perilous world of Corellia's criminal underbelly, only to discover they are on the same mission for the same unscrupulous boss. When the job goes disastrously wrong, Han and Qi'ra are on the run - from pirates, a droid crime syndicate, the Empire, and their boss - and will have to learn to trust each other if they are going to survive.

A solid if uninspired Star Wars adventure

This book gives some backstory to Han Solo in the canon timeline, it covers his time on Corellia during his teens. It's written pretty well, but the story doesn't reinvent the wheel so-to-speak. It's a very by the book YA adventure with not much happening until the last third of the book. Well narrated, worth checking out if you're a Star Wars fan and want something new to listen to.

Wonderful compliment to the Solo movie

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Builds each Han and Qi’ra up and adds even more depth to the film now. Highly recommend.

Great book

I really enjoyed this one a lot. Good background for the Solo movie. Don't miss this one.

Probably one of the best Star Wars books to date!

Excellent performance and very well written. If Aftermath had been written by Rae Carson, it would have been a much more exciting and detailed story. Very well written and thought out. I highly enjoyed this story about young Han and Qi'Ra. This is probably a good set up for Solo. 5 stars all around!

Great intro to Qi'ra and young Han

Solo as a film is fantastic. It was gritty, unique, and full of strong characters. This novel is a perfect lead in to the film as we are given a detailed view into Qi'ra and Han's lives as teens struggling to survive in filth and poverty while being exploited by criminals. This book gave a particularly solid build up for Qi'ra. She is a survivor, poised, practical, and intelligent. She stands on her own as a conpelling character beyond Han. I hope Rae Carson writes more about Qi'ra in the future.

Startlingly Fresh Story That Adds Context, Clarity

Rae Carson's precursor to the events of "Solo: A Star Wars Story" goes a long way in establishing not just the back story behind Han (Solo) and Qi'ra, but why the events that unfolded within the film itself are of such emotional heft and sway. This novel, set on Corellia before the film, provides a detailed look at the two characters in their roles as scrumrats and how each planted the seed to pursue their differing paths to glory and prosperity. The addition of a third character to this duo, the Rodian, is heartfelt and critical, adding to the sense of justice and measured sobriety of how cruel that big galaxy can be. It's a worthy addition to the canon and definitely recommended, particularly if you enjoyed the Solo film.

it wasn't the greatest story. It felt kind of random. but it was alright! hopefully it leads up to the film and plays a role in some of it!

A fun adventure!

This was a very well written story - Rae Carson, in my opinion, did a fantastic job of capturing the mannerisms of Han and Qi'ra that we see in "Solo," and likewise, the narrator/voice actress Saskia Maarleveld did a great job of bringing it all to life. This story definitely adds more depth to "Solo" - which I absolutely loved - and specifically brings more emotion to the onscreen relationship we see between Han and Qi'ra, also making it a bit more tragic.

doesn't add up

somethings in the story just dont make sense. Qi'ra says she doesn't want to leave friends sometimes and other times she says leaving is what she would do.

Must Read

If you have not seen Solo yet, read this first, then go see the movie. Great adventure pre-story for the characters.
