Nebula and Hugo Award nominees Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck—writing as James S. A. Corey—make their Star Wars debut in this brand-new epic adventure featuring Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia Organa. The action begins after the destruction of the Death Star in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
When the Empire threatens the galaxy’s new hope, will Han, Luke, and Leia become its last chance?
When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo—something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.
But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she’s determined to stay behind enemy lines. A pirate plans to sell a cache of stolen secrets that the Empire would destroy entire worlds to protect—including the planet where Leia is currently meeting with rebel sympathizers. Scarlet wants to track down the thief and steal the bounty herself, and Han has no choice but to go along if he’s to keep everyone involved from getting themselves killed. From teeming city streets to a lethal jungle to a trap-filled alien temple, Han, Chewbacca, Leia, and their daring new comrade confront one ambush, double cross, and firestorm after another as they try to keep crucial intel out of Imperial hands.
But even with the crack support of Luke Skywalker’s x-wing squadron, the Alliance heroes may be hopelessly outgunned in their final battle for the highest of stakes: the power to liberate the galaxy from tyranny or ensure the Empire’s reign of darkness forever.

Its S.A.Corey, gotta be good

The author manages to capture Han and Leia's personalities and banter quite well, and Scarlet is a great addition.

* It's a Han Solo book, and the characterization is spot-on. Our hotshot is up to his usual antics. Han's wisecracks in this book make me snicker, but he shows his serious side, too.

* The writing is vivid, crisp, and exciting--some of the best writing I've seen in a Star Wars book.

* The characters' outfits and hairstyles are lovingly described. Ah, sartorial book bliss! :)

* There is a bonus short story at the end if the novel.

A perfect fit into the Cannon narrative. It is a hard to put down,explosive ride into the wit and charm of Han Solo and Leia relationship. I would like to see Scarlet included in future novels.

This is a fast action read I couldn’t put down. Star Wars fans will love Han Solo's moves, light saber fights, and Chewbacca’s witty remarks.
The characters shine and the Force is strong with Honor Among Thieves.

I think this book is amazing and funny
