Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

While Leia sets about negotiations to secure a new home for the rebellion, she sends Han Solo on a rescue mission. Scarlet Hark, a deep cover rebel agent has signaled extraction from a core world that also serves as a stronghold for the empire.

Han Solo is the man for the job, and he and Chewie oblige Leia's request, and as it often goes for our lovable rogue, Han finds himself in scrape after scrape, and escape after narrow escape as the plot becomes more complicated, and greater dangers are revealed.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo—something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she's determined to stay behind enemy lines. A pirate plans to sell a cache of stolen secrets that the Empire would destroy entire worlds to protect—including the planet where Leia is currently meeting with rebel sympathizers. Scarlet wants to track down the thief and steal the bounty herself, and Han has no choice but to go along if he's to keep everyone involved from getting themselves killed. From teeming city streets to a lethal jungle to a trap-filled alien temple, Han, Chewbacca, Leia, and their daring new comrade confront one ambush, double cross, and firestorm after another as they try to keep crucial intel out of Imperial hands.

But even with the crack support of Luke Skywalker's X-Wing squadron, the Alliance heroes may be hopelessly outgunned in their final battle for the highest of stakes: the power to liberate the galaxy from tyranny or ensure the Empire’s reign of darkness forever.

Before I read Honor Among Thieves, a friend described the novel as "meat & potatoes Star Wars," and I can't imagine a better descriptor. This is a quintessential Star Wars story with a tremendously skilled writer. The character voices are spot on, the pace is electric, and I had a smile permanently plastered on my face as I read every single page.

I had absolutely zero expectations when I first picked this up. As one of the last few Legends books before the rebrand in 2014, I thought this was one of the last trickles of Legends and one I could easily skip. When I finally got around to reading it, I quickly realized that I was wrong! Honor Among Thieves is an excellently written, incredibly entertaining Original Trilogy-era Star Wars book. The story's original scoundrel, Scarlet Hark, is a perfect addition to fit right alongside the likes of Han Solo. Writing this has me dying to give this one a re-read!
