A Must Read for fans and even Star Wars newbies

This book was awesome! Think Ocean's 11 (the original one with the Rat Pack) with a Star Wars flare. It has you turning pages eager for the next turn. And you don't have to have read every book in the genre to be able to appreciate it either. You don't even really have to have seen the movies to get it. It's great for those who like heist/intrigue type books. For the fans who have poured over every book ever written it give a little extra background detail to many characters you know and love. It's well worth the read. I loved it!!

I am a fan of Zahn and the Star Wars universe...but this was jus

I am a fan of Zahn and the Star Wars universe...but this was just not good. Honestly it felt more like a fan fic off the internet than a Zahn Star Wars novel. It passed the time, but I can't say I enjoyed anything about it.

    just as with any heist story, I don't think it went as smoothly as the intended plan.

    A heist story set in the Star Wars Universe using the biggest loveable rogue of the series as the main character? How could this go wrong? It can't really. It would have taken a total, unexpected disaster to screw this up. And yet, just as with any heist story, I don't think it went as smoothly as the intended plan.

    My issue with it is that I don't feel like the author got Han quite right. It is Han, but it's the older Han in my opinion. He's the authority figure. The leader that's concerned about the people working under him. This didn't feel like a Han that would banter with Leia before charging a squad of stormtroopers on his own. I think it would have worked better if Han and Lando had been switched.

    Otherwise, I did enjoy the story. And I'll give it some credit for making a "Han didn't shoot first" joke that needed to be made.
