Two years have passed since Jacen Solo, seduced by the dark side
and reanointed as the brutal Sith Lord Darth Caedus, died at the
hands of his twin sister, Jaina, Sword of the Jedi. For a grieving
Han and Leia, the shadow of their son's tragic downfall still looms
large. But Jacen's own bright and loving daughter, Allana, offers a
ray of hope for the future as she thrives in her grandparents'
care. And when the eager, inquisitive girl, in whom the Force grows
ever stronger, makes a curious discovery aboard her grandfather's
beloved spacecraft-the much-overhauled but ever-dependable
Millennium Falcon-the Solo family finds itself at a new turning
point, about to set out on an odyssey into uncertain territory,
untold adventure, and unexpected rewards.
To Han, who knows every bolt, weld, and sensor of the Falcon as if
they were parts of himself, the strange device Allana shows him is
utterly alien. But its confounding presence-and Allana's infectious
desire to unravel its mystery-are impossible to dismiss. The only
answer lies in backtracking into the past on a fact-finding
expedition to retrace the people, places, and events in the
checkered history of the vessel that's done everything from making
the Kessel Run "in less than twelve parsecs" to helping topple an
From the moment the Falcon broke loose from a Corellian assembly
line like an untamed creature with a will of its own, it seemed
destined to seek out trouble. It wasn't long before the feisty
YT-1300 freighter went from shuttling cargo to smuggling
contraband. But it's a fateful rendezvous on Coruscant, at the
explosive height of the Republic/Separatist uprising, that launches
a galaxywide cat-and-mouse game whose newest players are Han, Leia,
Allana, and C-3PO. And they're not alone: Crime lords, galactic
pirates, rogue politicians, and fortune hunters alike loom at every
turn of the quest-each with his or her own desperate stake in the
Millennium Falcon's most momentous mission. Through the years and
across the stars, from the Rim worlds to unknown points beyond, the
race will lead them all to a final standoff for a prize some will
risk everything to find-and pay any cost to possess.
