YA Book Review- The Hutt Gambit by A.C. Crispin (Han Solo Trilogy Book 2)

To continue with the Han Solo Trilogy, this week we bring you book #2! If you thought the first book was exciting, brace yourselves for this action-packed title.

Last we saw Han, he was preparing to entire the Imperial Academy. When this book begins, it’s five years later and Han has just been ejected from his post as an officer in the Imperial Navy for standing up for a Wookiee slave named Chewbacca. Chewie swears a “life debt” to Han, beginning the long friendship that everyone know from the Star Wars movies. The two of them start a successful life on Nar Shadaa, the Smuggler’s Moon which is overseen by Hutt crime lords, and go on quite a few adventures. Everything seems to be going as well as it can go for two smugglers until they discover that the Empire has targeted their new home world for total destruction. The residents of Nar Shadaa are devastated, but they are a tough group- they band together to thwart the Empire’s attack! Meanwhile, Han’s old love Bria is working very hard to begin with rebellion that Star Wars fans know will eventually bring down the evil Emperor Palpatine and his minion Darth Vader.

Fans of Star Wars should definitely try and read this whole trilogy, but those of you who are only interested in Han’s life after his attempt at the Imperial Navy should not have a problem starting the story with this book.
