Also, Solo treats him like the slave he most certainly is not.

This book helped me understand why Han Solo acted the way he did in the original trilogy.
Alyse Thiel
Not as good as the first two books in this trilogy, but still decent.

This is a very good book and series. Brian Daley did not incorperate the rest of the Trilogy because it happened before the Trilogy. I guesss from reading the other reveiws people did not pick up on this. It really is a good book it helpes explain how and why Han acts the way he did. Just to let you know this was the first Trilogy about Han with in it. The other one happens first and I would reccomend that one instead. (They are Han Solo the Early Years: The Paridise Snare; Han Solo the Early Years: The Hutt Gambit; Han Solo the Early Years: Rebel Dawn) The last one (Han Solo the Early Years: Rebel Dawn) coincides with this trilogy, and references it. So in conclusion this is a good book and if you do not see teh tie-ins with the trilogy it is because they are non-existent and this happened before the Trilogy

George Lucas sanctioned Brian Daley to write these pre-Star Wars tales. Daley explorese the unique relationship that Han Solo and Chewbacca share in a story that is filled with action, humor and good ol' fashioned heroism. Han Solo is a rogue character--an outlaw smuggler who may appear rough on the outside, but who really has a heart of gold. For anyone who enjoys Star Wars and desires to learn Han Solo's early history--try this book.

This book helped me understand why Han Solo acted the way he did in the original trilogy. Also, note that besides the novelizations, it was out before most other Star Wars books.\ This is a great buy, and if you get it, enjoy.

Format: Paperback
The final installment in Bill Daley's Han Solo trilogy sees the central character searching for a lost treasure while trying to regain the Millennium Falcon from Hijackers. Though not as "space oriented" as other books in this series, it continues the development of the Han Solo character consistently with the movies.

Bill Daley captures the wry humor of Han Solo in each book of his trilogy. Yet the dialogue in this particular book lends itself best to showcasing the wisecracking Solo. This character trait reinforces his standing as an outsider or space pirate before he committs the alliance. It is only in the Expanded Universe series that fans are able to see this development of Han Solo. As this book draws to a close, the empathy showed by him hints at future turns in his character. Perhaps he is not the ruthless profiteer he thinks he is.

At times, this novel seems like an endless series of conflicts with natives. Some readers may find this slightly monotonous. However, none of this feels forced or merely to fill a page quota. Being such a short novel, I did feel that the ending was rushed. Overall though, it was a well crafted finale to Bill Daley's series.

Format: Paperback
The third and last of Brain Daley's pre-Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope (1977 & 2004 Versions, 2-Disc Widescreen Edition) trilogy is perhaps not quite as much sheer fun as the preceding two, but it's still full of action, suspense, techie throwaway, and unforgettable characters. Having left the Corporate Sector Authority, scene of their previous exploits, and returned to Imperial space (or at least the very edge of it--the Tion Hegemony is "so far out amomg the lesser star systems...that the Imperials didn't even bother to exert direct control over it"), Corellian smuggler Han Solo and his Wookiee partner Chewbacca fall in with an old friend, Badure, who knew Han in his Academy days and once saved their bacon. Badure has linked up with Hasti, a young woman whose murdered sister, before her death, acquired and squirreled away the log-recorder of the Queen of Ranroon, a legendary lost ship said to have carried the treasure of the long-dead tyrant Xim the Despot. But some rather nasty people know she had it, and Badure needs help--the kind that comes equipped with fast guns and a fast ship. Han is skeptical--he thinks Xim's treasure is so much interstellar gas--but Chewie invokes the Life-Debt they owe, and Solo reluctantly goes along. Their quest leads them to a remote planet where intelligent aquatic plesiosaurs battle each other over ferry rights on a lake and a group that calls itself "the Survivors" offers living sacrifices to an ancient technology that may well be a remnant of Xim's empire.Read more ›

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story is the third in the series of Han Solo Adventures written by Brian Daley (the first two being "Han Solo at Star's End" and "Han Solo's Revenge"). It was originally published in 1980, the same year that "The Empire Strikes Back" was released on the big screen. When I first began the series, I thought that perhaps the author would attempt to integrate some of the Star Wars trilogy into his story line. Aside from the characters of Han and Chewbacca and a couple of passing references to the Empire, this assumption was proven to be false. Not necessarily a bad thing, but a minor disappointment for me. Probably more so since the series was concluded about the time of "Empire's" debut. Aside from this, the story flows reasonably well as Han and Chewie go on a treasure hunt after the fabled plunders of the ancient conqueror Xim the Despot. Life never seems to be easy for our heroes as they encounter villains, fanatics, robots, and an old nemesis of Han's that are all out to seemingly prevent them from reaching their goal. In the end, the old saying "Be careful what you wish for, for you may get it" proves to be of special significance to them. For our characters are reminded that "having" is not always as gratifying as "the chase", especially when one man's "treasure" can be another man's "junk". Brian Daley leaves the story ending open with the certain possibility of a sequel. But in having chosen not to closely tie his series with the theatrical release of George Lucas' trilogy makes this difficult, if not impossible, particularly in light of the explosion of the many other Star Wars books that do continue the Lucas story line. Still, it was rather fun to temporarily suspend what we do know of "Star Wars" and to think along Brian Daley's lines of "What If..." After all, this all happened A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away..
