About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The story was a fresh one not a rehash of former themes (like many of the tedious Rogue Squadron books).
And the author added some nice touches; for instance: throughout this series Lando has a sidekick named Vuffi Raa, Vuffi is a Robot that Lando won in a card game; Lando can't stand him at first; but his relationship with Vuffi is one that teaches us what kind of a person Lando is.
This is also a nice, money-saving format for purchasing these series books.
In The Mindharp of Sharu, Lando wins a droid in a sabacc game and has to go to another planet to claim it. The droid he gets is the endearing Vuffi Raa, which you will see in all three stories. While he's there, he gets arrested. In order to get out of it, he must go to a nearby planet to obtain an ancient artifact called the Mindharp of Sharu that numerous people have been unsuccessful at obtaining. Apparently, the Mindharp contains great power. Power that Rokur Gepta, a sorceror from the planet Tund, is anxious to get his hands on. I'll leave it at that so I don't give away the end.
In The Flamewind of Oseon, Lando gets in big trouble again in the Oseon system and another shady deal is struck. The Governor of the Oseon System sets up a sting operation on an extremely wealthy denizen of the System who happens to be addicted to a highly illegal drug. He wants Lando to "sell" the drug to him while two undercovers are at his side during the deal. The problem? He has to fly to another asteroid in the system during the Flamewind. Every year the sun of the system spits out heinous solar flares for a week or so. Although they are very beautiful to watch, they are very dangerous to fly in. They screw up navigational equipment and mess with anything electronic in nature. Usually, nobody flies out of the system during the Flamewind, but Lando has to. Gepta appears in this story again and of course this whole deal was another setup for Lando.Read more ›

Very hard to create mental pictures of scenarios. Story can drag at times, but need to read for character development in the Star Wars Universe.Published 15 days ago by Chris A. Chavez
This book was ok. I think the author spent a lot of time over explaining the details of the environment. I felt it took attention away from the story. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Robert Strickle
