Reactions and Reviews
Everything about these stories is first-rate: plotting, characterization of both established and original characters, a very adept, witty prose style. But my top marks go to Martha's characterization of that most tortured (by writers) of canonical characters: Leia Organa. Martha's Leia is a mature adult, wise and pragmatic, with a wry sense of humor, a definite talent in her chosen field ... Han admires her as well as (presumably ... we don't see him come out and say it) loving her. Han is indisputably the main character in "Rogue," but I recommend reading it for her Leia. (Rieekan's in it, too ... just thought I'd mention that.) 
Han Solo meets a Sith Lord and his past meets up with the important people in his future. The beautifully fleshed out story and characters make this series flow so beautifully that it's really a novel. Probably the best Han Solo ever in fic. The characters are pitch perfect, the OC is a character I would kill to have in a movie.
