Title:  Crucible

Author:  Troy Denning

Collection:  Adult Fiction

Han and Leia Solo arrive at arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover but soon the stakes are raised and, to save Han — and the galaxy — Luke Skywalker and Leia must brave a gauntlet of treachery, terrorism, and the untold power of an enigmatic artifact capable of bending space, time, and even the Force itself into an apocalyptic nightmare.

Part of the Expanded Universe of Star Wars novels, Crucible takes place 45 years after the movies.  For me, reading any story with the characters from the original trilogy is like going home.  Denning captures the unique storytelling pace that is Star Wars, and obviously has an affinity for Han Solo in particular.  Crucible is entertaining, but is this Han, Leia and Luke’s last adventure?
