Star Wars: Crucible by Troy Denning

I find it difficult to engage in Star Wars books that do not revolve around the films and/or the conflict with The Empire. I know this speaks volumes about my lack of "whatever" but this is the case.

Crucible tells the story many, many years after Return of the Jedi. Han, Luke, Leia are all super old and yet they are the only ones who can help their old friend Lando with his latest mining operation. Lando is under pirate attacks and betrayal is just around the bend. Who else but the people he betrayed could come to his aid to solve the problem!

Seeing as I haven't kept up with all Star Wars books, I was completely lost as far as who so-and-so was and why these certain characters were the villains.

Denning includes plenty of action, explosions. It's a well-written story. I simply couldn't stay connected. This is my fault. The book is probably exciting for those fans who have read every book written in the Star Wars expanded universe.
