Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

In the third installment of AC Crispin’s Han Solo trilogy, the final threads of Han’s backstory are expertly weaved together. After coming into possession of the Millennium Falcon, Han is looking for smuggling jobs. When he accidentally reunites with Bria Tharen, he is pulled into a mission with the Rebellion. However, not everything is as it seems, and Han soon finds himself on the wrong side of the Hutts, the Empire, and even supposed friends.

With Rebel Dawn, Crispin once again delivers a phenomenal story that not only serves as a perfect ending for her own trilogy, but a seamless springboard for the events of the Original Trilogy. Readers are in for an absolute treat as this fantastic trilogy comes to a close.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

The Millennium Falcon is "the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy." So when Han Solo wins it in a game of sabacc, he and Chewbacca become kings of the smugglers--uncatchable, unstoppable. But with the Empire clamping down, Han knows his luck can't last. Still, when an old girlfriend who is now the leader of an insurgent Rebel group offers him a shot at an incredible fortune, Han can't resist. The plan seems a sure thing. The resistance will be light and the take enormous. Han and his friends will divide it equally with the Rebels. Too bad for Han that the planet of Ylesia is far from a pushover, that the Rebels have an agenda of their own, and that smuggler friends can often turn into enemies...quicker than lightspeed.

Rebel Dawn is the final chapter in AC Crispin's Han Solo Trilogy and it does not disappoint. All of the subplots that have been started in the first two installments manage to come together in a satisfying conclusion. As Han nears where we meet him in the beginning of A New Hope, more familiar faces and places begin to pop up, and Han gets ever closer to the scoundrel we know and love. I can personally guarantee you that the final scene of this trilogy alone will have you wanting more...

- Charles Hankel

There's no way that you're just picking up this book without reading the first two, and if you've already read those...you have to finish the trilogy. This book ties up all of the loose ends and presents a conclusion that is so satisfying it'll put a smile on your face every time you see this collection on your shelf for years to come.
