Publisher's summary

He was a child without a past, a Corellian street urchin, abandoned, foraging for scraps of food, when the cruel Garris Shrike whisked him away to join a nomadic band of space-faring criminals. Now, years later, chafing under Shrike's sadistic tyranny, driven by dreams of adventure and glory, Han fights his way free. His goal: to become an Imperial Navy pilot. But first he needs hands-on experience flying spacecraft, and for that he takes a job on the planet Ylesia - a steaming world of religious fanaticism and alluring sensuality, where dreams are destroyed and escape is impossible.

Critic reviews

"Crispin deftly weaves Han's early years into the Star Wars storyline and provides details that shape his personality. This prequel belongs in Star Wars collections." (Library Journal)
"This story...features a single narrator who mimics Harrison Ford as if he were younger, playing a young Han Solo with eerie authenticity. Sound effects and John Williams's stunning Star Wars music are used throughout to meticulous effect." (AudioFile)
