"Lando's Luck" is formatted like the Journey to The Force Awakens junior novels "Moving Target", "Smuggler's Run", and "The Weapon of a Jedi", where the main story is bookended by a prologue and epilogue set during the time of the Sequel Trilogy. Here, these scenes show the mercenary spy Bazine Netal looking for information on the Millenium Falcon, meeting with a contact who tells Netal her tale. The epilogue also sets up the bookends for the next Flight of the Falcon novel "Pirate's Price".
What I enjoy about "Lando's Luck" was the fact that the author was able to capture Lando's and L3-37's voice and character...for the most part. There were a few times where I felt Lando or L3 said or did something that I felt was not exactly aligned with their characters (L3 more so than Lando) but for the most part, it is Lando and L3.
My biggest problem with "Lando's Luck" is with the character of Rinetta. She is your typical rebellious princess but there are a few scenes that kind of elevates her above the trope, namely her first time on Neral's Moon and how it connects to Lando's earlier recollection about his first time on the moon. No, my main problem is with how the story is more her story than Lando's and L3's. She is the one who drives the main plot forward while Lando and L3 feel more like side characters, which is a problem for a book that is advertised being about said pair.
Overall, I enjoyed "Lando's Luck". It captured the voice and character of Lando and L3 well. However, who should be the main characters feel more like side characters to another's story. Though I will say it is nice to see Bazine again and I did like the fact the ending sets up "Pirate's Price".
>>Requires no previous Star Wars knowledge. I have watched 0 of the original trilogy on purpose, parts of the prequels, and sadly, none of the new ones. (The latter at least I plan on changing Soon(tm))
>>I love Justina Ireland!!!
>>Love the cover and few illustrations.
>>Contains Cheeky Droid Navigator, Do Right Adventuress Princess and her badass Assassin Queen mom, spaceship fighting, color-changing alien cat species with three tails and a quest to save the world, pay off debts, and stave off the Empire for another day.
>>And obvious Lando in all his GLORY. I will admit it still makes me do a double-take seeing Donald Glover as Lando. He's perfect, don't get me wrong, but I still have this moment of "I KNOW YOU! You belong somewhere else too!!".
>>I think even people who don't like or care about Lando will enjoy this. I think *this* story is more of what people were looking for in the Solo movie.
Notes from Reading:
>>"Forsythia stilled, and suddenly Lando was less certain that the gian cave monster wasn't a better option." - pg.29
>>"Lando only knew that the one time he'd joked about such a thing, she'd flown into a snit and refused to help him pilot the Falcon for nearly a week, stranding him on Tatooine, a miserable dustbin that he never wanted to return to again." -pg.109
>>"Zel sniffed. "You keep giving me guns but no one to shoot," she said, ears drooping a little as she made her way to the gun bays." -pg. 133
>>"Okay, we all like each other and we are all smart and beautiful. Still, I have five ships closing in fast." - pg.135
