At Star’s End is the first book in Brian Daley’s Han Solo Adventures trilogy that depicts Han and Chewie working jobs throughout the Corporate Sector of the galaxy. In this novel, they discover a close friend and brilliant ship mechanic has been imprisoned by the Authority and go to rescue him. However, they didn’t plan on him being locked away in Star’s End—one of the most bizarre, nightmarish prisons the galaxy has to offer.


First published in 1979, Brian Daley was one of the earliest authors to write backstory for Han and Chewbacca with At Star’s End. Though it has many unfamiliar elements from the Original Trilogy—most notably the Authority and the Corporate Sector—Daley still manages to write a highly enjoyable rendition of these beloved characters that rings entirely true.

Publisher's Summary

Han Solo trusts no one, and does no favors. But when the best illegal ship rebuilder in the galaxy disappears, Han and Chewbacca agree to go after him—after all, the Millennium Falcon needs some very special repairs. Their search pits them against powerful and ruthless enemies out to destroy them, and finally leads them to an airless speck of desolate asteroid—the Authority prison planet known as Stars' End.

This is the first of a trilogy written by Brian Daley and published before the Original Trilogy was even completed! With relatively little material to draw on Daley sucessfully capture the essence of Han and Chewbacca, giving us a portrayal of them consistent with what we see on screen. The setting and the plot are original, and the story is a fast-moving good time that's aged incredibly well.

At Star's End is the perfect example of the "weird" for which the older EU is famous. It's a well-written story that stays true to the characters of Han and Chewbacca, but some of the events in the story—particularly towards the end—don't feel quite traditionally Star Wars. That being said, it's a fun book and if you're a Solo fan, there is plenty to get out of it.
