ARCHIVE REVIEW OF HAN SOLO AT STARS' END BY BRIAN DALEY

HAN SOLO AT STARS' END review archived from 2008
After STAR WARS came out, kids wanted everything to do with the characters, even following their lives before and after the film: And here we have fan-favs Han Solo and Chewbacca on their own adventure(s), in book form, pre Death Star battle, and there's enough action and suspense to pull the ears off a... you know the rest...

Han's out to free captives, including his furry sidekick, from a remote prison planet called Stars' End. Before and after the proverbial tractor beam pulls us into fulfilling this main plot, there are plenty of close-calls, dog fights, fist fights, and tons of action as the writing flows swift and neatly. Sometimes corny but never too much. You almost always have a gallant footing of time and place (and space): STARS' END would have made an excellent movie. And so, since nothing can touch the original trilogy, let's hope, at the very least, that SOLO (reviewed tomorrow) lives up to this cult book trilogy by Brian Daley: three in all followed by HAN SOLO'S REVENGE and HAN SOLO AND THE LOST LEGACY.
