    Ambush at Corellia by Roger Macbride Allen



    A trade summit on Corellia brings Han Solo back to the home planet he left many years before. Arriving on the distant planet with Leia, their children, and Chewbacca, Han finds Corellia overrun with agents of the New Republic Intelligence and finds himself part of a deceptive plan whose aim not even he understands. One thing is clear: the five inhabited worlds of the sector are on the brink of civil war and the once peaceful co-existence of the three leading species -- human, Selonian, and Drallan -- has come to an end.

    Suddenly all that Han, Leia, and others of the Alliance have fought for is threatened. As jammerships block all communication with Luke Skywalker and the outside universe, Han and Leia find themselves trapped on a world about to explode in violence unless they can meet a fanatical rebel leader's impossible demands...

    I give it an 8. I really like the premise of the book, and the only thing keeping me from giving it a higher rating is that Allen often used long-winded explanations. He had paragraphs going on for pages it seemed.

    The best book of the Corellian Trilogy. It was nice to see Han's homeworld. I enjoyed the subplot where Lando tries to find a wife, the climax was kick-ass, and Thrackan Sal-Solo made for an enjoyable villain. I also liked seeing X-TIE fighters; pretty interesting concept.

    I only got 30 pages into the book. It was horrible. I'd rather put a spike through my head than read this again. 1 out of 10.

    This was the first Star Wars book I ever read. It is set long after the OT and there were a lot of new characters etc. I just loved the idea of everyone moving and growing up, having kids and everything else. It really seemed to catch the feel of the OT too.
    I give the book a 9

    It was a great book.Like some people have said though he took a little long to explain things.It was also great to get a feel of what Han's Homeworld was like.

    I give it a 10/10
