Journey To The Force Awakens : Smugglers Run by Greg Rucka

Happy Star Wars Reads Day!!! Here is a great read to pick up today!

Ah Han! This scruffy looking guy who was only out for himself, some how worked his way into all our hearts. 

Rucka has captured the essence of Han in this adventure set just after the events in Star Wars.

Han has been persuaded to do a rescue mission for an important rebel agent that is on the run from the Empire. A simple retrieval job that won't  even take him of his route to pay off Jabba the Hutt. What could go wrong ?

A lot actually. And it's all due to Imperial Officer Alecia Beck. From the moment Han lands on Cyrkon the job goes wrong. Bounty Hunters, Stormtroopers and a female Imperial immune to his many charms.

I really enjoyed this story but as far as Force Awakens information it's hard to know what if any information the story is giving. The story is framed by 'Old Han" talking to a gang planning a job at a cantina, but other than that the story is spoiler free. I really loved  this story. It was fun to have a tale just centered around Han and Chewie. I hope Rucka gets to write another Han adventure soon.
