Description

Even the fastest ship in the galaxy can't outrun the past. . . .

THEN:

It's one of the galaxy's most dangerous secrets: a mysterious transmitter with unknown power and a reward for its discovery that most could only dream of claiming. But those who fly the Millennium Falconthroughout its infamous history aren't your average scoundrels. Not once, but twice, the crew of the Falcon tries to claim the elusive prize-first, Lando Calrissian and the droid L3-37 at the dawn of an ambitious career, and later, a young and hungry Han Solo with the help of his copilot, Chewbacca. But the device's creator, the volatile criminal Fyzen Gor, isn't interested in sharing. And Gor knows how to hold a grudge. . . .

NOW:

It's been ten years since the rebel hero Han Solo last encountered Fyzen Gor. After mounting a successful rebellion against the Empire and starting a family with an Alderaanian princess, Han hasn't given much thought to the mad inventor. But when Lando turns up at Han's doorstep in the middle of the night, it's Fyzen's assassins that he's running from. And without Han's help, Lando-and all life on Cloud City-will be annihilated.

With the assistance of a young hotshot pilot, an Ewok slicer prodigy, the woman who might be the love of Lando's life, and Han's best and furriest friend, the two most notorious scoundrels in the New Republic are working together once more. They'll have to journey across the stars-and into the past-before Gor uses the device's power to reshape the galaxy.

Review quote

"Lighthearted, roguish ... Last Shot becomes far more interesting than you might expect a supposed Solo tie-in novel to really be" * Gizmodo * "At long last, the fans of the Star Wars universe will be able to revel in an official origin story based upon the young Han Solo's exploits and join him for an all new adventure alongside his famous companions." * The Future of the Force * "Crammed with fannish glee ... Last Shot is a book filled with unexpected delights and the whole thing is just oodles of fun - 8/10 star review" * Starburst Magazine * "Daniel Older packs the story with lurid colour, fast-paced action and continuity references'" * SFX * "For anybody looking to get his Han Solo fix while waiting for the movie, this is an excellent book " * DisOutsider blog *
