    1. I got so excited seeing Han Solo on this cover! I really love how each book cover is different and about different characters and still following the story line. But man X-7 is a jerk lol

    2. My biggest complaint with Hostage, the previous book in this series, was how badly Wheeler characterized Leia. He doesn't make anything better in Renegade, when the book starts with her accusing Han of trying to kill Luke. I get that Wheeler is trying to show the slow trust Leia gains for Han, but this was a bridge too far; even if she didn't trust Han, she never would have thought he had anything to do with harming Luke.The other weird thing about the book is that it shows the Rebellion still [...]

    3. This book was not as good as the others. There were too many things going on and it felt disjointed. Han left to go on some mission that didn't make much sense and Ferus was watching him, but the latter was only mentioned in one small paragraph - so it didn't even matter. Han meets up with a friend named Lore who's only in this book so doesn't seem to actually be in Han's past.Luke heads to Tatooine for Biggs' memorial which doesn't even seem to happen, and while I like seeing him with his frien [...]

    4. I am going to have to knock it down to a 3. Leia's character continued to be an annoying person that seemed like a pain. The other thing was the author had a "hidden" former Jedi protecting Leia growing up and he was close to her father. He knew the hidden truth about Leia and Luke. I thought that was a little too far from reality. He wasn't a Jedi for years before Order 66 came about, so why would he be involved? I get maybe he was friends with Ogana for a long time and he asked him to stick ar [...]

    5. 2.5 starsX-7 tries to assassinate Luke and frames Han Solo. While Luke is unconscious and recovering, Leia interrogates Han about his involvement. Han protests his innocence and is highly insulted that she would think him capable of hurting Luke. Han takes the Millenium Falcon and goes on the run with Chewbacca. Along the way, they discover the truth about X-7. Meanwhile, Leia and Luke return to Tatooine for a memorial for Biggs. Brawls and races ensue. Luke puts to rest his lingering doubts abo [...]

    6. The series so far is getting a pretty consistent three stars from me. I did like the appearance by Bossk in this one. It was kind of cool to see him go up against Luke. There are still spoilers from all the movies in this so if you are reading to kids who haven't seen all the movies, prescreen it. The story is solid and enjoyable though. But of course the sense of danger isn't too strong since we already know what happens to everyone in the end. The last sentence of this one was worth the read t [...]

    7. Another change of pace from the other books in series. This one started less than promising with Han and Chewie leaving the scene, being framed for an attempt on Luke's life, but to me this scenario was a little silly and hard to believe. But, the story turns around and there's some good intriguing moments mixed with adventure. I liked the inclusion of Jabba, and I'm ready to read books 5 and 6 soon.

    8. I know many readers preferred this book and called it the best of the series so far I didn't feel that way, although I do love to see development of the Han Solo character. Maybe I wasn't as much in the mood this time or something, but I had a feeling of forced action in the book that made me feel like something was missing this time around. I hope book 4 draws me back in. If not, it might be time to leave the Star Wars universe for a while and read something else.

    9. Very good story. Assassin X-7 now knows it was Luke Skywalker that destroyed the Death Star and has been given the go ahead by his commander to kill him. Unfortunately he fails but manages to pin his assassination attempt on Han Solo. You get a very sad look at how Leia and the Alliance view Han but still Luke trusts Han. Eventually the truth is found out. C+

    10. This one returned to having a lot of telling instead of showing. Not as bad as the first book, but certainly not as good as the second. Unfortunately the copy that I checked out from the library is missing the second to last page. So I'm going to have to check out another copy to read that one page. Unfortunately there is no electronic resource available.

    11. I couldn't put this down. A MUST-READ for Star Wars fans when C3PO speaks, you hear his droid voice in your head! Characters are written true to the movie. Full of action, adventure, intrigue and romance. Not the best read-aloud though too much internal dialogue and digression.

    12. This book continues the series and focuses on Han and X7. It is interesting to see how X7 is willing to use all the people around him and their past and current weaknesses to his advantage. It continues Han as the reluctant rebel and shows his stubbornness in many ways. Very fun book.

    13. After being setup by their new companion, Han Solo breaks out of jail with Chewie's help, and flees. Much is revealed eventually.Another fast read, these feel more like chapters than novels.
