“Star Wars – Aftermath: Empire’s End” by Chuck Wendig

Book Cover

This is the final book of the Star Wars story which takes place after the Return of the Jedi. Members of the New Republic travel to the planet Jakku, where the remnants of the Empire are hiding, to destroy what is left of the Empire. In the meantime, Han, a very pregnant Leia and Mon Mothma, work together in an attempt to build a working government for the New Republic, but a traitor is conspiring against them. This is a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy and is best appreciated if the first two books are read beforehand.

Evaluation: 4 out of 5

“Star Wars – Aftermath: Life Debt” by Chuck Wendig

Book Cover

This is book two of the Aftermath trilogy which takes place some years after the events in Return of the Jedi. The two major plot lines follow Han and Chewie as their work to liberate the Wookie home world from the clutches of the remnants of the Empire, while Leia and former Imperial hunter Norra Wexley, look to capture Grand Admiral Rae Sloane of the former Empire. This is a typical Star Wars book loaded with action and mayhem. Recommended basically only for fellow Star Wars fans.
