Set before the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story! Han and Qi'ra don't have a lot in common other than not having a lot. They're street kids on the industrial planet Corellia, doing whatever it takes to get by, dreaming of something more. They each jump at a chance to prove themselves in the perilous world of Corellia's criminal underbelly, only to discover they are on the same mission for the same unscrupulous boss. When the job goes disastrously wrong, Han and Qi'ra are on the run--from pirates, a droid crime syndicate, the Empire, and their boss--and will have to learn to trust each other if they are going to survive....

Most Wanted (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel) Reviews
Thank you Rae Carson for getting Han Solo spot on. After reading Last Shot I was a little worried about reading another Han Solo book. I think it makes a big difference when a book is written by a fan.
I enjoyed this book right from the beginning, Rae I think managed to capture all the aspects of Han’s personality. He is cocky, but loyal and compassionate. A “scoundrel” but with great leadership qualities. Han is famous for his piloting skills, we see his natural aptitude for it in this book, but ...more
Not the greatest and not the worst.
Most Wanted expects you to have some knowledge of Star Wars beforehand. I've read other licensed works that tried harder to guide readers who are not familiar with the IP's lore, and the writing couldn't be clearer that this was not one of them (the Solo film logo and recommendation is even on the front cover!). Descriptions of the world have laser-guided relevance, characterizations are basic, and there's the barest of introductions to our main cast. Because ...more
The best part about this little prequel is the lack of traditional YA elements that often accompany any such novel (as was the case with Lost Stars, Ahsoka, Princess of Alderaan and even Rebel Rising). Two street rats, double-crossed by their boss and thrown into a power struggle between various crime syndicates for the control of, yes, your average McGuffin which curiously doesn't act in detriment to the story. That's about it, no messing with the canon, no troublesome continuity blusters... an ...more
Dear Disney and Lucasfilm,
If you're really going to take a bit of time to reflect and revise on your whole Star Wars strategy, let me suggest you also reevaluate your line of novels. Lately, they're been really boring, and lately you've been giving novels to authors who don't know how to write Star Wars novels. The characters are bland, the plots are so very thin, and the writing is cliched and uninspired. In particular, your crop of recent YA writers are just awful. Please just give some novels ...more
This felt more like I was reading a juvenile Star Wars novel, than a novel dedicated to an adult audience. I got to know some about Solo's background, which was enjoyable enough, and the introduction of Solo's -possibly - first love interest showed me a more human side. The book wasn't bad. The writer just wasn't good enough to write a Star Wars novel.
I read the Kindle version of Most Wanted.
Set before the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Most Wanted leads a teenaged Han Solo and Qi'ra on an adventure through the mean streets of Corellia.
Working as part of a street gang, the White Worms, Han Solo has a tough life. They live in the sewers and do the bidding of Lady Proxima. Proxima sets Han and Qi'ra on separate but, unknown to them, connected missions, with the lure of leading the children of the White Worms if they succeed.

The story follows Han and Qi’ra, and is set before ‘Solo – A Star Wars Story’, although there is no real hint of timelines. Given their relationship in the movie, where they are in the White Worm Gang etc, it is obviously a bit before the movie. The two of them are players in one of the crime syndicates on Corellia’s underworld, both with their own set of talents. Han is quick on his feet, learns quickly, is able to talk fast, think fast, and get himself out of basically any situation with a bit ...more
This was a great fast paced adventure.
Rae Carson did an amazing job here. She nailed Han in every aspect. Qi'ra was awesome, i liked her a lot in the movie (Solo: A Star Wars Story) and here you get so much more of her. The rest of the characters were also really good, my favourite being Tsuulo.
The plot was simple and good, i liked it. You get to spend time on Corellia (which is always good) and learn how people live under imperial rule (which we've seen already but not on Corellia).
The audioboo ...more
