Publisher's Summary

Han Solo, Leia Organa Solo, and Luke Skywalker return in an all-new Star Wars adventure, which will challenge them in ways they never expected - and forever alter their understanding of life and the Force.

When Han and Leia Solo arrive at Lando Calrissian’s Outer Rim mining operation to help him thwart a hostile takeover, their aim is just to even up the odds and lay down the law. Then monstrous aliens arrive with a message, and mere threats escalate into violent sabotage with mass fatalities. When the dust settles, what began as corporate warfare becomes a battle with much higher stakes - and far deadlier consequences.

Now Han, Leia, and Luke team up once again in a quest to defeat a dangerous adversary bent on galaxy-wide domination. Only this time, the Empire is not the enemy. It is a pair of ruthless geniuses with a lethal ally and a lifelong vendetta against Han Solo. And when the murderous duo gets the drop on Han, he finds himself outgunned in the fight of his life. To save him, and the galaxy, Luke and Leia must brave a gauntlet of treachery, terrorism, and the untold power of an enigmatic artifact capable of bending space, time, and even the Force itself into an apocalyptic nightmare.

Exciting

What made the experience of listening to Crucible: Star Wars the most enjoyable?

Marc Thompson I love the way he reads the book and how he brings the characters to life. I like the audible books because you get a feel of the action and he seems you are part of the story and you are more aware of the story.

What did you like best about this story?

All the old characters was back together and I was glad to see new characters. The story was good and I was kind of glad they was fighting a new foe instead of the just the Sith.

The Sith was present and this will strengthen the story and I hope it will lead to another story. Han, Leia, and Luke are older and the children are older also I think this is how the saga shall proceed.

What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Action and excitement he makes you see and feel the story. The special FX are also good they help you experience the story better.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laugh at some of the scenes and I cried when I thought that Luke or Leia may not have made it. I felt sorry for some of the other characters too.

Any additional comments?

The story was good but they were a little off about Mortis and I think that could have been done a little better. But since I have been following Star Wars so long and I have seen the Clone Wars series it explain it better in one of their episode and the Dawn of the Jedi series by Dark Horse comics explains it better and you can just start putting all the pieces together. But I really enjoyed the book and I was glad that it was set after The Fate of the Jedi I hope that will be more stories In the future to build on the younger characters and other Jedi working together to make the Jedi more stronger.

Out with the old?

It was a good story continuing after the events of the Fate of the Jedi series. It felt rushed though, as if Disney wanted to end this version of Star Wars canon and get on with their own.

Sad to see the EU end here.

Hate that this was the end of the EU. Disney sure did destroy this universe.

Great ending to true star wars novels.

This is a great way to conclude what I believe to be the true star wars novel saga. While I like the new direction the cannon has taken, I think these are the real stories in a galexy far far away.

Good trio swan song Novel! Had some story issues

What did you love best about Crucible: Star Wars?

Luke Skywalker... 'Nuff said.

What does Marc Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Everything! Marc makes the book come to life, it's amazing that he's the only one that actually narrates it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Though it does have it's issues... sure. It is very compelling, so yes.

Any additional comments?

See, I love the book but there are issues with the story. It's not very consistent and it throws you off stride. (Not the good Timothy Zahn 'of stride') i think Mr. Denning can make great novels, he has shown this, but this could have been better.

(SPOILERS!) Personally I would have thought a better swan song would be a more classical Jedi vs Sith book but instead Troy goes for a more exotic Columi vs Jedi book that leads them to the Not-Mortis. Now this is were it slipped for me.
The monolith wasn't executed well, and it didn't really mesh with the already explained nature of the monoliths in the Clone Wars episodes (and my personal theory, that they are some type of Tho Yor.) The execution of Not-Mortis was not very well done, the Story threw you around, and the characters felt to wide spread in a similar way to the villains in Batman Arkham City.

Nevertheless the issues surrounding this story are problematic but the areas where they are aren't large, therefore it's like a couple bad bites in a brownie. I would definitely suggest this to any star wars novel reader, casual or otherwise. It's the swan song (So far as we know....) to the original trio team up so it can't be passed up. Unfortunately it's the swan song to the original star wars trio team up. :,( Don't actually trust that statement as i'm sure another novel will reveal the death/fate of Han, Luke, and Leia.

Good but I wish it wasn’t over.

I just wish this wasn’t the end of the Legends continuity. I desperately want to see the adventures of these characters continue, they are a galaxy better than what the new canon has produced and it’s a crime that they may never get a proper ending.

Pretty good. Good full ending.

Would you consider the audio edition of Crucible: Star Wars to be better than the print version?

The emotions, moods, music, feelings, and the ending of this cannot beat by reading.

What other book might you compare Crucible: Star Wars to and why?

A good continuation to the other star wars books.

Which scene was your favorite?

The ending with Luke's revelation.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The ending was unexpected, but I guess it was bound to happen.

Hoping this storyline continues

This is a great follow up story for everyone who has read the fate of the jedi series of books. I'm hoping this story line continues. So much is still a mystery.

A flawed but well meaning finale to the Classic EU

I originally was going to skip this after finishing the FOTJ series but with the drama around the Rise Of Skywalker film I chose to get this instead.

Marc Thompson as always is the best part of the Star Wars audiobooks and he still gave it his all to the very end.

Yes, I do agree that the story isn't the best we got from Troy Denning especially in comparison to his other books but given that he had to rush this after his Jaina Solo trilogy was cancelled by Disney, he probably did the best he could on short notice.

Overall, a nice swansong for the original trio of heroes. Not the best, not the worst, take it for what it is, especially since there was nore love and care in these books than Disney or J. J. Abrams put into any of their Star Wars stuff.

Here's hoping we get more Star Wars Legends stuff in the future.

Good little book, clearly setting up more but cut short. A farewell to the fans.

Long Winded

Good story but found it to be a bit long winded. Took a while to get into the plot. I felt as if each chapter was too long.
