Last Shot: A Han and Lando Novel (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel) Reviews

    I did really want to like this book, and especially as Han Solo?s demise in the movies. I was hoping this would be a last shot at glory for Han showing how valuable he is to to Star Wars universe. I was ok with him sharing the spotlight with Lando, however for me Lando stole the and ...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/26/... As the time draws nearer for the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story to hit theaters, in true Star Wars merchandising fashion, there?s a media tie-in novel available just in time to prime you for the movie...

    After watching Solo: A Star Wars Story, I was pumped to read Last Shot. Lando and Han have such great screen chemistry in the original trilogy, and with this story being set around two years after Return of the Jedi I was hoping for the prose to capture some of that scoundrel and swagg...

    Since Disney bought Lucasfilm, there has been an onslaught of "new" canon media. And, to be honest, it's all been really hit or miss. Unfortunately, Last Shot is mostly miss. Don't get me wrong, the writing isn't terrible or anything, but it isn't terribly interesting either. Th...

    This came out just in time for the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which centers around the galaxy's favorite smuggler Han Solo. And I am telling you, I was ready. And while the film ended up being a positive surprise, this novel somehow left me with an odd feeling. The book...

    Set in the month's following Chuck Wendig's Aftermath trilogy, Daniel Jos Older explores the rise of a singular threat in a post-Imperial galaxy. In the book's opening moments, Lando Calrissian is attacked in his home on Cloud City by a mysterious hooded figure demanding the Phylanx ...

    I'll stick with The Hutt Gambit for pre-ep IV Han and Lando, and The Last Command for Han struggling with fatherhood, thanks. ...

    This could have been a good book. There was a lot going for Han and Lando in Last Shot and potential really was there. 2 old scoundrels, trying to figure out the semi-retired life post-rebellion era, and then suddenly thrust into recruitment once more against a threat that could being ...

    "....an Ewok slicer prodigy" *BURSTS INTO TEARS OF UTTER AND COMPLETE HAPPINESS* ...

    You?ll want to pick up a copy of this book when it releases on Tuesday. Trust me. ...

    I just siiigh I WANT to like this new Han stuff but this was just... so bad. Like I don't want to bash someone who goes out and actually is able to write a book but this was seriously awful. From characterization to plot to style. If this was Han and Lando and Leia I couldn't t...

    Good start, then the book just falls apart. The backstories are dull and (I did the Audible version) having the author do some of the narrating was awful. He had poor narration skills and was overly-smug of his own lackluster work. Marc Thompson and January LaVoy should have been left ...

    This was kinda fun, I suppose. The story was all over the place, some parts were enjoyable while other parts were just plain annoying, such as continuous subplots being introduced and way too much fan service. The book felt more focused on the characters than the plot and unfortunately...

    Woof. Thoroughly disappointed with this one. The writing style ruined it for me (not the "swear words" or the characters or the quibbles with Legends carryover)... bouncing back and forth between different eras and storylines and points-of-view made it impossible to get into or really ...

    I'm a massive Star Wars fan and after finishing this I'm really disappointed. The writing isnt bad, I actually enjoyed the dialogue between Lando and Han but I feel like it was more of a Lando book though. I also feel like knowing the end game for these characters in other mediums, the...

    So. This book had an Ewok in it, which is always a good start. I do not determine my ratings solely on the presence or absence of Ewoks, but they are appreciated when they appear. Beyond Peekpa, this was a very fun Han and Lando adventure story. Remembering to make Star Wars fun is ...

    In terms of sheer mediocrity, this is definitely not the worst Star Wars book I've read, or even in the Disney canon. But it still made me think "is there really nobody who can look at a final product like this and say 'this just isn't good enough'?" It's an incredibly dumb premise ?...

    It's a shame, because there were parts of this book that were done really well--some really nice Han and Lando moments in particular. But the story itself was far too messy, too overdone. The idea driving it was good, but the problems resided in the execution. I didn't even so much min...

    This book had far too many instances of contemporary slang for my liking. The SW universe is set a Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away, so no one would say: I'm out! Feel me? Clapback etc. I should have written them all down. Also, Han had a fake wife named Sana Starros? I di...

    4/27 EDIT- I don't usually do this whole add-a-review-before-I-read it thing but, there I was, mildly bummed I would have to wait for Last Shot instead of getting to read it on May The Fourth Be With You which, besides blessedly being a weekend this year, is a weekend I'm on a trip ...

    Honestly, this is the last SW novel I buy in hardback. Most of what I?ve read since the book canon was rebooted has read like interstitial fanfic - fic that takes super minor characters or super minor moments in the main characters? lives and blows them all out of proportion. Or (a...

    Well, this one was fun! A creepy bad guy that I wanted them to kill with fire since the beggining! Lando and L3 before Han (now i want to see more of that relationship in Solo) following a weird device! Han heartsick? (I'm betting Qi'Ra here) and with Chewie and Sana Starros on the Fal...

    A lot of fun with some unexpected themes for a Star Wars book but the various timelines don?t gel in the way they might, and the story ends up feeling quite fragmented as a result. ...

    Fallen low the new canon has, just around the corner the end of Star Wars is. ...

    I need to stop reading Star Wars books, as Daniel Older's name is now on a rapidly-growing list of authors whose work I generally really like but whose SW books I couldn't even finish. There have only been a couple of new-continuity books that I've enjoyed. It's probably time to give u...

    Star Wars publishing in 2018 just got even better. I'm sure Last Shot is going to be freaking awesome. ...

    I want to start out by saying that I nearly always finish a book, regardless of whether I like or dislike it. I could not finish this book. Before I get into it, I will say there were TWO things I did like in the book: the author does a great job of portraying Han's struggles to have a...

    Actual rating is 2.5 stars. This is a Han Solo and Lando team up story. This book details three different time frames and the story goes back and forth from these different times. In this one, someone tries to kill Lando and it has something to do with a transmitter that Lando and H...

    First, a disclaimer: while I love the depth and breadth of Star Wars and have since 1977, Han Solo occupies the part of the storytelling galaxy that tends to interest me least. That said, I did enjoy reading Last Shot, mostly for the sections from Lando's point of view. (I'll never...

    Since Disney bought Lucasfilm, there has been an onslaught of "new" canon media. And, to be honest, it's all been really hit or miss. Unfortunately, Last Shot is mostly miss. Don't get me wrong, the writing isn't terrible or anything, but it isn't terribly interesting either. Th...

    Set in the month's following Chuck Wendig's Aftermath trilogy, Daniel Jos Older explores the rise of a singular threat in a post-Imperial galaxy. In the book's opening moments, Lando Calrissian is attacked in his home on Cloud City by a mysterious hooded figure demanding the Phylanx ...

    So. This book had an Ewok in it, which is always a good start. I do not determine my ratings solely on the presence or absence of Ewoks, but they are appreciated when they appear. Beyond Peekpa, this was a very fun Han and Lando adventure story. Remembering to make Star Wars fun is ...

    In terms of sheer mediocrity, this is definitely not the worst Star Wars book I've read, or even in the Disney canon. But it still made me think "is there really nobody who can look at a final product like this and say 'this just isn't good enough'?" It's an incredibly dumb premise ?...

    It's a shame, because there were parts of this book that were done really well--some really nice Han and Lando moments in particular. But the story itself was far too messy, too overdone. The idea driving it was good, but the problems resided in the execution. I didn't even so much min...

    This book had far too many instances of contemporary slang for my liking. The SW universe is set a Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away, so no one would say: I'm out! Feel me? Clapback etc. I should have written them all down. Also, Han had a fake wife named Sana Starros? I di...

    4/27 EDIT- I don't usually do this whole add-a-review-before-I-read it thing but, there I was, mildly bummed I would have to wait for Last Shot instead of getting to read it on May The Fourth Be With You which, besides blessedly being a weekend this year, is a weekend I'm on a trip ...

    Honestly, this is the last SW novel I buy in hardback. Most of what I?ve read since the book canon was rebooted has read like interstitial fanfic - fic that takes super minor characters or super minor moments in the main characters? lives and blows them all out of proportion. Or (a...

    Well, this one was fun! A creepy bad guy that I wanted them to kill with fire since the beggining! Lando and L3 before Han (now i want to see more of that relationship in Solo) following a weird device! Han heartsick? (I'm betting Qi'Ra here) and with Chewie and Sana Starros on the Fal...

    A lot of fun with some unexpected themes for a Star Wars book but the various timelines don?t gel in the way they might, and the story ends up feeling quite fragmented as a result. ...

    Fallen low the new canon has, just around the corner the end of Star Wars is. ...

    I need to stop reading Star Wars books, as Daniel Older's name is now on a rapidly-growing list of authors whose work I generally really like but whose SW books I couldn't even finish. There have only been a couple of new-continuity books that I've enjoyed. It's probably time to give u...

    Star Wars publishing in 2018 just got even better. I'm sure Last Shot is going to be freaking awesome. ...

    I want to start out by saying that I nearly always finish a book, regardless of whether I like or dislike it. I could not finish this book. Before I get into it, I will say there were TWO things I did like in the book: the author does a great job of portraying Han's struggles to have a...

    So. This book had an Ewok in it, which is always a good start. I do not determine my ratings solely on the presence or absence of Ewoks, but they are appreciated when they appear. Beyond Peekpa, this was a very fun Han and Lando adventure story. Remembering to make Star Wars fun is ...

    In terms of sheer mediocrity, this is definitely not the worst Star Wars book I've read, or even in the Disney canon. But it still made me think "is there really nobody who can look at a final product like this and say 'this just isn't good enough'?" It's an incredibly dumb premise ?...

    It's a shame, because there were parts of this book that were done really well--some really nice Han and Lando moments in particular. But the story itself was far too messy, too overdone. The idea driving it was good, but the problems resided in the execution. I didn't even so much min...

    This book had far too many instances of contemporary slang for my liking. The SW universe is set a Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away, so no one would say: I'm out! Feel me? Clapback etc. I should have written them all down. Also, Han had a fake wife named Sana Starros? I di...

    4/27 EDIT- I don't usually do this whole add-a-review-before-I-read it thing but, there I was, mildly bummed I would have to wait for Last Shot instead of getting to read it on May The Fourth Be With You which, besides blessedly being a weekend this year, is a weekend I'm on a trip ...

    Honestly, this is the last SW novel I buy in hardback. Most of what I?ve read since the book canon was rebooted has read like interstitial fanfic - fic that takes super minor characters or super minor moments in the main characters? lives and blows them all out of proportion. Or (a...

    Well, this one was fun! A creepy bad guy that I wanted them to kill with fire since the beggining! Lando and L3 before Han (now i want to see more of that relationship in Solo) following a weird device! Han heartsick? (I'm betting Qi'Ra here) and with Chewie and Sana Starros on the Fal...

    A lot of fun with some unexpected themes for a Star Wars book but the various timelines don?t gel in the way they might, and the story ends up feeling quite fragmented as a result. ...

    Fallen low the new canon has, just around the corner the end of Star Wars is. ...

    I need to stop reading Star Wars books, as Daniel Older's name is now on a rapidly-growing list of authors whose work I generally really like but whose SW books I couldn't even finish. There have only been a couple of new-continuity books that I've enjoyed. It's probably time to give u...

    Star Wars publishing in 2018 just got even better. I'm sure Last Shot is going to be freaking awesome. ...

    I want to start out by saying that I nearly always finish a book, regardless of whether I like or dislike it. I could not finish this book. Before I get into it, I will say there were TWO things I did like in the book: the author does a great job of portraying Han's struggles to have a...

    Actual rating is 2.5 stars. This is a Han Solo and Lando team up story. This book details three different time frames and the story goes back and forth from these different times. In this one, someone tries to kill Lando and it has something to do with a transmitter that Lando and H...

    Since Disney bought Lucasfilm, there has been an onslaught of "new" canon media. And, to be honest, it's all been really hit or miss. Unfortunately, Last Shot is mostly miss. Don't get me wrong, the writing isn't terrible or anything, but it isn't terribly interesting either. Th...

    Set in the month's following Chuck Wendig's Aftermath trilogy, Daniel Jos Older explores the rise of a singular threat in a post-Imperial galaxy. In the book's opening moments, Lando Calrissian is attacked in his home on Cloud City by a mysterious hooded figure demanding the Phylanx ...

    Good start, then the book just falls apart. The backstories are dull and (I did the Audible version) having the author do some of the narrating was awful. He had poor narration skills and was overly-smug of his own lackluster work. Marc Thompson and January LaVoy should have been left ...

    Woof. Thoroughly disappointed with this one. The writing style ruined it for me (not the "swear words" or the characters or the quibbles with Legends carryover)... bouncing back and forth between different eras and storylines and points-of-view made it impossible to get into or really ...

    I'm a massive Star Wars fan and after finishing this I'm really disappointed. The writing isnt bad, I actually enjoyed the dialogue between Lando and Han but I feel like it was more of a Lando book though. I also feel like knowing the end game for these characters in other mediums, the...

    I did really want to like this book, and especially as Han Solo?s demise in the movies. I was hoping this would be a last shot at glory for Han showing how valuable he is to to Star Wars universe. I was ok with him sharing the spotlight with Lando, however for me Lando stole the and ...

    Since Disney bought Lucasfilm, there has been an onslaught of "new" canon media. And, to be honest, it's all been really hit or miss. Unfortunately, Last Shot is mostly miss. Don't get me wrong, the writing isn't terrible or anything, but it isn't terribly interesting either. Th...

    In terms of sheer mediocrity, this is definitely not the worst Star Wars book I've read, or even in the Disney canon. But it still made me think "is there really nobody who can look at a final product like this and say 'this just isn't good enough'?" It's an incredibly dumb premise ?...

    This book had far too many instances of contemporary slang for my liking. The SW universe is set a Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away, so no one would say: I'm out! Feel me? Clapback etc. I should have written them all down. Also, Han had a fake wife named Sana Starros? I di...

    4/27 EDIT- I don't usually do this whole add-a-review-before-I-read it thing but, there I was, mildly bummed I would have to wait for Last Shot instead of getting to read it on May The Fourth Be With You which, besides blessedly being a weekend this year, is a weekend I'm on a trip ...

    Honestly, this is the last SW novel I buy in hardback. Most of what I?ve read since the book canon was rebooted has read like interstitial fanfic - fic that takes super minor characters or super minor moments in the main characters? lives and blows them all out of proportion. Or (a...

    Well, this one was fun! A creepy bad guy that I wanted them to kill with fire since the beggining! Lando and L3 before Han (now i want to see more of that relationship in Solo) following a weird device! Han heartsick? (I'm betting Qi'Ra here) and with Chewie and Sana Starros on the Fal...

    A lot of fun with some unexpected themes for a Star Wars book but the various timelines don?t gel in the way they might, and the story ends up feeling quite fragmented as a result. ...

    Fallen low the new canon has, just around the corner the end of Star Wars is. ...

    I need to stop reading Star Wars books, as Daniel Older's name is now on a rapidly-growing list of authors whose work I generally really like but whose SW books I couldn't even finish. There have only been a couple of new-continuity books that I've enjoyed. It's probably time to give u...

    Star Wars publishing in 2018 just got even better. I'm sure Last Shot is going to be freaking awesome. ...

    I want to start out by saying that I nearly always finish a book, regardless of whether I like or dislike it. I could not finish this book. Before I get into it, I will say there were TWO things I did like in the book: the author does a great job of portraying Han's struggles to have a...

    Actual rating is 2.5 stars. This is a Han Solo and Lando team up story. This book details three different time frames and the story goes back and forth from these different times. In this one, someone tries to kill Lando and it has something to do with a transmitter that Lando and H...

    First, a disclaimer: while I love the depth and breadth of Star Wars and have since 1977, Han Solo occupies the part of the storytelling galaxy that tends to interest me least. That said, I did enjoy reading Last Shot, mostly for the sections from Lando's point of view. (I'll never...

    This book could have been so much more, but instead just feels hollow. That was one of my biggest gripes with "Last Shot" (other than the timeline jumping which got a bit confusing/annoying after a while). The book had great elements of dealing with droid sentience and enslavement, but...
