‘Honor Among Thieves’ Micro-Excerpt #1

Star Wars Books has posted micro-excerpt #1 for Honor Among Thieves by James S.A. Corey.

Han crossed his arms and shrugged. “You know, I’ve never in my life been bossed around as much as since I hooked up with you rebels. It makes me wonder if you guys actually know what that word means.”

“What word?”

“Rebel.”

Scarlet carefully went over her gray maintenance jumpsuit, checking to see if her various tools and patches were all in place. She had a methodical nature Han found grating and familiar at the same time.

“We’re not anarchists,” she said, tugging at the patch on one sleeve that identified her as a level-three technician. “We have goals. We want to end the Empire.”

“And replace it with what?”

“You know what,” Scarlet said. Her crossed arms matched his own. “Are you trying to make fun of me?”

“It was rhetorical. I’ve heard the speech, sweetheart. ‘A glorious return to the Republic of old.’ To a guy like me, a new boss is still a boss.”

“Then why are you helping us?”

“Honestly? Still trying to figure that one out.”

Honor Among Thieves will be out in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats on March 4, 2014. You can find out more via Random House’s official product page.

Official ‘Honor Among Thieves’ Blurb

Del Rey has posted the official blurb for James S.A. Corey’s upcoming Han Solo novel Empire and Rebellion: Honor Among Thieves.

When the mission is to extract a high-level rebel spy from the very heart of the Empire, Leia Organa knows the best man for the job is Han Solo—something the princess and the smuggler can finally agree on. After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

But when Han locates the brash rebel agent, Scarlet Hark, she’s determined to stay behind enemy lines. A pirate plans to sell a cache of stolen secrets that the Empire would destroy entire worlds to protect—including the planet where Leia is currently meeting with rebel sympathizers. Scarlet wants to track down the thief and steal the bounty herself, and Han has no choice but to go along if he’s to keep everyone involved from getting themselves killed. From teeming city streets to a lethal jungle to a trap-filled alien temple, Han, Chewbacca, Leia, and their daring new comrade confront one ambush, double cross, and firestorm after another as they try to keep crucial intel out of Imperial hands.

But even with the crack support of Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing squadron, the Alliance heroes may be hopelessly outgunned in their final battle for the highest of stakes: the power to liberate the galaxy from tyranny or ensure the Empire’s reign of darkness forever.

Honor Among Thieves is set for release on March 4, 2013 in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

In case you missed it, Edelweiss has a blurb up for Empire and Rebellion: Honor Among Thieves.

Nebula and Hugo Award nominees Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck-writing as James S. A. Corey-make their Star Wars debut in this old school, action-packed, Space Opera epic. This brand-new, classic adventure stars the irrepressible Han Solo and his new friends, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa, just after the destruction of the Death Star in Star Wars: Episode VI A New Hope!

When a rebel spy needs extraction from under the nose of the Empire, who better to send than master smuggler, Han Solo? But rescuing a friendly spy is just the start of a wild adventure as the intel the spy uncovers leads Han and Leia to an ancient and deadly secret that threatens to be the Empire’s ultimate-and likely successful-weapon against the Rebel Alliance. Add in the chance to lose Luke Skywalker to this horrific threat, and Han and Chewbacca may have finally met a trap even they can’t escape…

Honor Among Thieves is tentatively scheduled for a March 4, 2014 release in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.
