Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

Set before Solo: A Star Wars Story, Rae Carson gives us a glimpse into how Han and Qi’Ra’s relationship began. In a story that gives us a glimpse into life with the White Worms and on the streets of Corellia, we see the pair start out as rivals pitted against each other by Lady Proxima and evolve into the duo we see at the beginning of the film, getting help along the way from intriguing new characters after their job takes a messy turn.

Don’t let the ‘young adult’ tag deter you: Most Wanted is a fast-paced heist adventure with just enough twists to keep you guessing while it keeps you turning pages. The extra depth and gravitas it lends to Han and Qi’Ra’s relationship may well change the way you see that spaceport scene and Qi’Ra’s fateful decision aboard Dryden Vos’s yacht.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

Han and Qi'ra don't have a lot in common other than not having a lot. They're street kids on the industrial planet Corellia, doing whatever it takes to get by, dreaming of something more. They each jump at a chance to prove themselves in the perilous world of Corellia's criminal underbelly, only to discover they are on the same mission for the same unscrupulous boss. When the job goes disastrously wrong, Han and Qi'ra are on the run - from pirates, a droid crime syndicate, the Empire, and their boss - and will have to learn to trust each other if they are going to survive.

DO NOT LET YOUNG READER NOVELS SCARE YOU AWAY! Most Wanted is an absolute gem of a story that is nearly impossible to put down. It's a high-speed chase from start to finish that somehow manages to slip in impactful, quiet moments that strike true to the core of its characters. You will walk away from this book wishing you had a whole trilogy dedicated to young Han and Qi'ra.

- Charles Hankel

This is possibly the most fun book in the new Star Wars Canon. If you loved the connection between Han and Qi'ra in Solo: A Star Wars Story, then you'll devour this novel in one sitting just like I did. A classic adventure tale mixed with the origins of a love story create one of the best additions to Han's history, and the second you finish the final page, you'll eagerly be seeking out the next work by Rae Carson.

- Eric Eilersen

If you loved Solo: A Star Wars Story, then Most Wanted is practically a requirement. The novel centers around Han and Qi’ra as they are younger and highlights all of the hardships they had gone through under Lady Proxima before the events in the film. Seeing their bond spark and expand as kids gives volume to their romantic chemistry in the movie.

- Heather Goldman

In Most Wanted, Rae Carson does a marvelous job of buidling a foundation for the key interpersonal relationship in Solo: A Star Wars Story - the relationship between Han and Qi'Ra. Set before the movie, the novel shows us how the friendship we see in the film's first act. All of this is set in a fast moving plot that makes the book almost impossible to put down. Carson's look at Han and Qi'Ra lends gravitas to some of the film's most moving scenes, and has us eager to see her take on more Star Wars projects.
