Edit A trade summit on Corellia brings Han Solo back to the home world he left many years before. Arriving on the distant planet with Leia , their children, and Chewbacca , Han finds Corellia overrun with agents of the New Republic Intelligence and finds himself part of a deceptive plan whose aim not even he understands. One thing is clear: the five inhabited worlds of the sector are on the brink of civil war and the once peaceful coexistence of the three leading races— Human , Selonian and Drallan —has come to an end. Suddenly all that Han, Leia, and others of the Alliance have fought for is threatened.

Shelves: star-wars The time has come for Han Solo to go home to his homeworld of Corellia. He along with Leia, Chewie, and his children go for an important trade summit. Once there, the situation escalates, as none of the major species human, Drall, and Selonian can stand each other.
Meanwhile, Lando with the aid of Luke has a different mission in mind NOTE: This is a review based on the audio book and what I remember from reading the actual novel years ago. I Liked: The new characters. Belindi initially struck me as a woman that was good to look at but far from drop dead gorgeous. So that, and the fact she gets a part of the action, means I was instantly drawn to her. I love how we get to be with her for her crash landing, how she is part of the NRI, and how Han helps her escape Corellia to send an important message to Coruscant.
I almost envision him as a hairier if that is even possible Gimli. Lastly, Tendra Risant. Another woman I can relate to! She is slightly overweight despite how she is drawn with perfect curves in her Wookieepedia profile but very kind, and generous. I am very glad that Lando found her. She was a perfect doll. The main characters come off very well as well. Han and Leia in particular are excellent, namely Han.
It was enjoyable to watch him return to Corellia, to see him roam the streets. And you can really feel the romance, the love between these two, which is sometimes sorely lacking in these books. Lando and Luke are present too I absolutely adore the conversation Mon Mothma has to Luke , but I want to focus on someone else not seen often enough: Mara Jade. She reappears in this book, to deliver a message to Han and Leia.
As for the story, I was stunned. It is so interesting! Initially, Han and Leia are going to Corellia for a trade summit, but then they run into a huge conflict between the species of the Corellian system. This is such a unique story, such a cool conflict! And who could hate a story set on a planet where Han was born? While it is interesting to see a man try it instead of a woman, I still was a bit perturbed at how it takes away from an otherwise amazing story.
And would Luke really try to help Lando marry someone for money? In fact, it seem odd to me that Mon Mothma actually encourages Luke to join Lando. There is chemistry between Han and Leia. Han runs headlong into a Human League march, which lands him in jail. Belindi crash lands on Corellia. Overall: This was another of those books I read when I was a teen and vastly enjoyed. A good read.
