This good book if you want to know about the history of Lando Calrissian and his droid Vuffi Raa, but there are some small things that would have made the book a bit better. Instead of saying hyperspace, the author put faster-than-light. And there's only small mentions of the Empire, and Lando's hanging around systems barely anybody's ever heard of before. But the conversation Lando's having with the Hall in the pyramid of the Sharu was kind of humorous, so I recommend it if you're a big Star Wars fan (like me) and want to expand your knowledge of the Star Wars universe.

Lando has just one the Millenium Falcon in a card game and, against his will, also finds himself the owner of a brand new droid named Vuffi Raa. Their adventure is strange and confusing, but highly entertaining. The mystery of an ancient and highly intelligent race of beings who leave no trace of their existance except giant and impenetrable monuments has only one clue. Guess who gets to play detective.

Quirky July 9 2010
By Jedibarrister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Turns out this is the first book in the Lando trilogy. Lando's recently won the Falcon, can't fly or navigate or land. How far they come to becoming a rebel general in charge of a fleet. Basically, the young gambler and "con artiste" gets conned into going to Rafa to pick up a droid he "won" in a card game. The Toku, barely sentient savages of the Rafa system, have a myth about a Key Bearer w/ dark skin and a metalloid Emissary taking the Key to the Mindharp and freeing the oppressed or something. The Sharu were an ancient people on Rafa before the Toku and the current colonists. The Mindharp allegedly has powers over the mind. So what is the Mindharp? What happened to the Sharu? How'd the Toku take over when they're barely sentient? And how can Lando regenerate toes?

These and other questions get answered. I found the story hard to read. The young impatient Lando was funny and hard to place with the cynical and hard nosed administrator of Cloud City. But you can see how he and Han would be friends.
Lando is in trouble --arrested under false charges Aug. 8 2013
By Zxielle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lando Calrissian wins a droid in a game of sabacc and travels to Rafa IV to claim it. There he is arrested on false charges and forced to find an ancient artifact--the Mindharp of Sharu. It is said this instrument-when played correctly--can control the minds of everyone in the system. There are some crazy adventures along the way, but will Lando do the right thing in the end?
