As far as the story goes, Han and some partners of his he picks up on the way are in search of a treasure beyond anything they could imagine. Anyone who's read the previous two Daley books knows that Han's luck in such endeavors isn't always the best, so of course hijinks ensue!
Familiar faces are back, namely Bollux and Blue Max who are two of my favorite characters in all of the Star Wars extended universe and I'll miss reading about them.
All in all, a fun and fast paced Han Solo and Chewie adventure with lots of action. It reads pretty quickly because it's rather short but definetly for anyone who's a fan of Han Solo.
by Brian Daley
Brian Daley pulls out all the stops, the first recorded description of the scar on Harrison Ford’s Chin… Yep before Young Indiana Jones had a whip scar, it was a knife fight for Han Solo, that left the characteristic scar on our hero. Second, you wonder where fast and the furious was first seen in print, okay maybe not first seen but matie, her is a twist, how about the whole concept of Han Solo’s personal bent in life is based on his ability to be fast and furious… Yep, he made the concept in Brian Daley’s Han Solo and the Lost Legacy. This scoundrel, privateer, and smuggler is turning his hand at treasure hunting. Okay yes another skeem failed, Han lost his money again, and has debts. When does he not have debts he can’t pay? Han Solo, Mr. Slick… has a way to make so much money he would not know what to do with himself. And guess what his plans is… well you will have to read this daring adventure, and learn a little history of the Star Wars universe, that I have never heard of. Get Ready for Solo, in all his impulsive character, just getting himself in the biggest dog fight of his life… Without the Millennium falcon to back him up, at least until the end. I was delighted to read this story, learn some interesting history and understand some of the technology, theology and ideology of the Star Wars universe. Thank you Brian, for making the character come alive in so many new and confounding ways.
One thing I thought was done really well in this book was character development, particuarly of Han whom we get some interesting background on. Having said that, LL was pretty much just like an Indiana Jones story but set in space; what little time our heroes spend in space that is. A strange thing to say considering Raiders... didn't come out until a year after this book was published. The plot takes us through one escapable encounter after another and the payoff was only moderately worthwhile.
If you've read the first two books in this series it's a good bet that finishing it off with LL is likely, especially considering all three are fairly short and added together is roughly the length of the average novel, but the Han Solo adventures are by far some of the most entertaining stories in the Star Wars universe. It would be nice if the upcoming stand-alone movie featuring Han contains a few nods to Brian Daley's work, to keep the now Legends work relevant, but despite it being a favorite among some of those involved in Lucasfilm I'm not holding my breath. 3.5+ stars
