7/10 Wasn't Zahn's best work. I thought there would never come a time where we would see a lack of fodder for SW stories, but this is one. It just seems like TZ tried to squeeze a story into a time space where there wasn't one already. The whole Lando thing doesn't flow. Supposedly Han and Lando hadn't worked together since that "stunt" Han pulled...which was revealed as the whole Ylesia thing in the Han trilogy right?? So then why are they meeting up in this caper!? It just seems forced from the beginning and that makes the end of the story a foregone conclusion because you know from the point that Lando enters that it has to end badly if they are to still have bad blood by ESB. Just my opinion. I like it because its a fun read in the SW universe with some of my favorite characters, but its not the best.
