Okay, so I’m incredibly behind on my posts again so I’m going to leave out the dates that I read these just because it’s going to be quicker. For a rough idea I started this one mid September while on my cruise and finished it right after I got home.

You guys might remember way back at the start of the year I read the first book in this series. It’s a Star Wars series set between Episode VI and Episode VII. It largely features a cast that doesn’t appear much (or at all) in the movies but does occasionally touch on the lives of Leia and in this book Han.

This book takes place immediately after the first book and switches between the ongoing war on the Wookie homeworld and the political state of the Empire. Again, I don’t want to spoil too much of it for those who want to read but there’s those who alway ssay the middle book in t a trilogy is the worst but this is not the case for this trilogy. It was a great read and made me more excited for the next one not less.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars

I’ve been a Star Wars fan since I was a kid. I remember my parents sitting me down to watch the original trilogy when The Phantom Menace was coming out and I fell in love. This is the first time I’ve tried reading a book though. It was a great first book to read though, Chuck Wendig is a great author and this is no exception.

The book is a little confusing to begin with with so many threads to keep track of from a rebel pilot looking for her son to a strange man in a bar, an imperial star commander, and a rebel pilot on a mission, but once you grasp all the threads it’s very cleverly written, especially with the short little interludes sprinkled throughout the book which show what life is like for the regular people.

I’ll definitely be picking up the next book to read so you can expect another post on this series soon.
