Still on their quest for easy credits and an occasional Sabacc game, Lando and Vuffi Ra come across a young Oswat, adrift and starving. After saving his life, they agree to meet him at the entrance of his home at the StarCave of ThonBoka. Needless to say, this gets them into more trouble when they discover Lando's old nemesis, Rokur Gepta, waiting for them.

L. Neil Smith isn't a bad writer, and these stories aren't bad, but seemingly every decision made in their creation is totally nonsensical. We are establishing Lando's background in these stories: broadening his character, exploring his milieu, and giving him some touchstone adventures. But while we nominally start off with Lando doing his actual thing (gambling) and he occasionally returns to the sabacc table throughout the adventures, the central narrative is totally foreign to Lando. He doesn ...more

Despite L. Neil Smith's attempts to tank it, this ends up a fairly decent story and enjoyable read. It doesn't feel like Lando is in it much, since Smith spends some time wrapping up threads of supporting characters from the earlier installments (which is a nice touch) as well as introducing some new supporting characters while channeling his inner Diane Duane (with a sprinkling of Marshak and Culbreath) - this aspect does not always work as well, since it is intentionally obtuse for most of the ...more

L. Neil Smith wraps up his Lando Calrissian series with this uneventful entry. In this chapter of the continuing story, the titular character and his mechanical co-pilot, Vuffi Raa, encounter a species that can live in the pure vacuum of space, the oswaft. For reasons that were somewhat fuzzy to this reader at least, Lando and Vuffi decide to assist this species, which is dealing with starvation due to a siege from the Centrality Navy (why the Centrality cares about this species of manta-like de ...more
An entertaining read. It's pretty much a stand-alone story (along with the previous two titles in the series); "Lando Calrissian and the StarCave of ThonBoka" is not really connected to the overall "Star Wars" mythos, other than the setting being during Lando Calrissian's ownership of the Millenium Falcon, as briefly touched upon in "Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back." ("What have you done to my ship?") I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction between Lando and his droid, Vuffi Raa. I've ...more
This was not a good way to wrap up the Lando Adventures.

Lehesu is an Oswaft, a race of aliens who are persecuted and now endangered. Lehesu calls on Lando and Vuffi Raa (is he droid, sentient, organic, something other?) for help.

There was too much around sabacc that, even though Shanga's forces being paired to equal the number 23, it was tiring. How many paragraphs or chapters can start with Lando (or someone else) calling out, "Sabacc!" Too many.
Simply put, the worst book I've ever read. Dull, tedious, the only redeeming feature is that it was so short although it certainly didn't feel like it. As close to unreadable as I've encountered and I wouldn't recommend it to even the most ardent Star Wars fan.

A good ending to the series. The author wrapped it up a little too quickly for my taste, but all of the ends were neatly tied up, if a bit too compact. I enjoyed the plot of this one more than the second. We need more Lando!

Ugh... what a terribly written book.
