falcon The Millenium Falcon is arguably the most famous ship in the entire Star Wars canon. This is the book where we finally find out the true history of this great ship.

It’s an entertaining romp that takes us back and forth in time as we encounter each of the Falcon’s owners – and  follow Han Solo, Leia and Allanna on their journey.

The writing in this book is crisp and the plot flows brilliantly from page to page – making this a true page turner.

This book follows chronologically from the last Legacy of the Force book where Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus dies – but there is little direct connection between this book and that – except for Allana being a traveller with Solo.

The only problem with this great book – unfortunately is the end which is terribly dissapointing. After such a brilliant build-up we finally get to the location where the secret the Falcon has been keeping for 70 years lay hidden.


Why would the Republic Group have sent Jadak to recover that? Wouldn’t they still have wanted it to stay hidden? It’s just lame.

Overall though a great book – I just wish the end would have been thought out a bit better instead of being total nonsense.
