As much as I love Star Wars, it can be frustrating for them to go on and on about Light Side vs. Dark Side; thankfully it's a sigh of relief to have a book that deals with good old fashioned smuggling!
Enter Han Solo, my favorite character from the original trilogy. This and the next two books cover events before the movies as we see how he became the captain of the Millennium Falcon.
A great read, if you love a good old fashioned adventure.
