Product Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the never-before-told story that began with Star Wars: Aftermath continues in this thrilling novel, the second book of Chuck Wendig’s bestselling trilogy.

It is a dark time for the Empire. . . . 

The Emperor is dead, and the remnants of his former Empire are in retreat. As the New Republic fights to restore a lasting peace to the galaxy, some dare to imagine new beginnings and new destinies. For Han Solo, that means settling his last outstanding debt, by helping Chewbacca liberate the Wookiee’s homeworld of Kashyyyk.
 
Meanwhile, Norra Wexley and her band of Imperial hunters pursue Grand Admiral Rae Sloane and the Empire’s remaining leadership across the galaxy. Even as more and more officers are brought to justice, Sloane continues to elude the New Republic, and Norra fears Sloane may be searching for a means to save the crumbling Empire from oblivion. But the hunt for Sloane is cut short when Norra receives an urgent request from Princess Leia Organa. The attempt to liberate Kashyyyk has carried Han Solo, Chewbacca, and a band of smugglers into an ambush—resulting in Chewie’s capture and Han’s disappearance.
 
Breaking away from their official mission and racing toward the Millennium Falcon’s last known location, Norra and her crew prepare for any challenge that stands between them and their missing comrades. But they can’t anticipate the true depth of the danger that awaits them—or the ruthlessness of the enemy drawing them into his crosshairs.

The grass swishes and shakes as Sinjir crawls up on his belly. “Ow!” he says, flexing his hand and popping the knuckle of his thumb in his mouth. “This grass is slicing me to bits.”
 
“It drinks your blood,” Jas says, easing closer. “Thirstgrass sustains itself on the creatures who walk through it. Little sips from little cuts.”
 
He frowns. “Lovely. I’m here for my hourly update. And my hourly update is: I am bored. Bored out of my skull.”
 
“That’s always your hourly update,” Norra says.
 
“Because it’s true every hour.”
 
“It’s my update, too,” Temmin says, crawling up next to them. “Seriously, this is awful. I want to burn all this grass. And the thorny bushes. And the flies.” As if to demonstrate, he swats at the back of his hand. “See? Ugh. I should’ve stayed on Chandrila.”
 
“Can’t we just go back to Kai Pompos?” Sinjir asks. “We’d make it by nightfall. There’s a little drinkery around the back of the town. They have a still where they ferment this root, this korva root. So we go back, we tip back a few under the Irudiru moons, we reformulate our strategy—”
 
“This is a fact-finding mission,” Norra says, feeling like a mom commanding a child to stay put. “We stay here until all the facts are found.”
 
“Facts are,” Temmin says, “the guy isn’t coming out. He’s dug in like a blood-bug.” They’d heard rumors that Aram was a big-game hunter, and thought maybe that would afford them an opportunity to get close to him. But so far, no go. Nor has he gone out for supplies. Or even a breath of fresh air. They’ve seen neither hide nor hair of the man. Just droids. “Here’s what we do. We take Mister Bones—” Bones sits crumpled up behind them, his skeletal body folded tightly with his head bowed and his arms enclosing his knees. “And we let Bones march down there, find the guy, drag him up here onto the plateau, and we question him. Simple.”
 
“As simple as chasing birds with a hammer,” Sinjir mutters.
 
“Everyone hush,” Jas says. “Temmin, did you build my thing or not?”
 
“Yeah, yeah.” He fishes around in his pocket and holds up a pair of devices in the palm of his hand. One looks like a round from a slugthrower, but it’s been modified—the shell casing crimps around a circuit bulb, and the tip of that bulb has four little prongs. Like insect mandibles. The second device is round, no bigger than a button, with a little zigzag antenna sticking out.
 
“It’s a bug,” Temmin says, sounding impressed with himself.
 
“This planet has enough bugs without us adding more to it,” Sinjir grouses. “And before anyone corrects me, yes, I know, it’s a listening bug and not a real bug and—oh, never mind. Good job, Jas. Now what?”
 
“We can’t get eyes on, so we need to get ears on. I load this into my rifle and fire it right at his manse. Then—” She grabs the second device. “This jury-rigged earpiece with which to listen in.”
 
“Clever,” Sinjir says. “Still not sure what I’m doing here.”
 
Jas hands him the earpiece. “ You’re going to do the listening.”
 
 “Joy.” He makes a face as he takes it and screws it into his ear.
 
The bounty hunter unslings the slugthrower from her back. Norra again grabs the binocs and focuses them at the compound.
 
A herd of animals have come up alongside the invisible perimeter— long-limbed, long-necked leathery things, these beasts. They number in the dozens. Some stop to nip at the tufts of ki-a-ki bushes, while the others bat at one another with bony protuberances atop their narrow snouts. Norra is pretty sure they’re morak. Big things, but herbivores. Though she’d hate to get stomped under those long legs—legs that end in claw-tipped feet.
 
Jas pulls the slugthrower close and uses her thumb to pop open a bipod at the end of the barrel, giving it stability. She tugs the scope tight against her eye. Norra watches her through the grass—the way Jas draws a breath deep, then slowly exhales it until no breath remains and she is still . . .
 
It’s surprisingly close to what Luke taught Leia, isn’t it?
 
Shut out the world. Be mindful, but empty.
 
Like a cup to be filled up.
 
(Of course, Jas does this in order to kill people more efficiently.)
 
The bounty hunter’s finger coils around the trigger.
 
But then—
The morak all look up at the same time. A gesture of alarm.
 
Norra reaches out and touches Jas’s shoulder. “Wait.”
 
“What is it?” Jas asks.
 
“Something’s up.”
 
Sinjir plucks the earpiece out of his ear, scowling at it. “This thing is fritzing out. It’s making this . . . high-pitched whine. Wretched sound.”
 
Down below, the morak begin to move. All of them at once, a herd movement. They go from walking to galloping, their long bony legs launching them forward with a swiftness that surprises Norra.
 
The animals are headed toward the hill where the crew is waiting.
 
Closer, closer.
 
The ground begins to vibrate beneath them.
 
It’s too steep, surely. They can’t—
 
The animals reach the bottom of the hill and begin to scramble up the side of it. Their clawed feet make great haste, and now Norra knows what those claws are for. Dust spirals behind them.
 
They’re coming right for us.
 
“We have to move,” Norra cries. “Move!”
 
She and the others spring up out of hiding and turn tail, bolting through the grass. The morak crest the hill, bleating and blowing mucus from their snouts. The ground rumbles as the herd stampedes.
 
The grass slices at Norra’s arms, but she can’t waste time caring. Everyone moves fast—everyone except Bones, who sits somewhere under cover, and is hopefully resilient enough to suffer the knocks and blows of the morak. She’s not even sure where they should go. Run straight? Turn to the side? The morak are coming right up behind them—
 
One lopes past Norra in a lumbering gallop, swiping at her with its long neck—the thing is twice her height and she just barely darts out of its way even as others come up behind her. Ahead, though she can’t see it, the far side of the hill awaits. What then? Run down it, trying not to fall? Duck and pray the charging morak go over the edge?
 
The bounty hunter runs next to her, and when one morak comes behind her, Jas jabs at it with the barrel of her slugthrower—and the beast roves drunkenly toward Norra. It clips her and she staggers—
 
Her legs go out from under her—
 
There’s Temmin, grabbing her by the belt to keep her from falling. It’s just enough to help her get her legs back under her. Norra is about to thank her son—
 
She doesn’t get the chance.
 
A sound hits them, a sonic hum. Suddenly, the morak are squawking and turning sharply away, the herd splitting in twain as if by an invisible wedge. Norra thinks, Thank the stars for whatever is doing that.
 
But then something lands in the grass in front of them—the thing rolls a few times like a flung rock. It beeps three times in succession. Then:
 
An implosive sound— foomp. The air lights up around them, a hard pulse of bright light. It concusses the air, too, hitting her like a thunderclap. Norra is suddenly blind and deaf, her ears ringing, her vision washed away in a tide of searing white. She fumbles for the blaster at her side—she whips it out, and it’s suddenly rocked out of her hand, clattering away.
 
A shape emerges in front of her as the white light begins to recede: a person-shape. Norra thinks: Aram has us. We thought we were watching him, but he was watching us.
 
She leans forward, starts to stand.
 
“Don’t move,” comes a voice. Quiet, but urgent.
 
Norra asks as her eyes adjust, “Who is that? Who’s there?”
 
The figure steps forward. She spies two blasters held aloft, one in each hand, and one pointed right at her. “Name’s Han Solo. Captain of the Millennium Falcon. Who the hell are you?”

First book was ok, but this one I couldn''t finish. So much political overtones in the book and I had to stop reading when the gender neutral pronouns became apart of the book, at that point having to understand it was meant to say "He" or "She" but not saying it was too much of a distraction, I had to stop reading and re-read parts when the pronouns were present, and an obvious emphasis on adding homosexual couples into the storyline as it was needed for the actual story since the characters had already had a solid back story from the first book. It also changed their whole look in my opinion and didn''t match the characters at all.

It''s just not good.
I have never felt so unattached to characters like I am to the Wexleys. If these are the heroes of the Republic, it''s in big trouble. Norra still reels from losing (and even gaining back) Brentin, she''s disinterested in being a mother and actually doing motherly things, and starts a love triangle that is as boring and predictable as I''ll get out. Temmin is written so poorly, I found myself skimming his chapters or any mention of him. Chuck has no business writing teenagers. It''s as if he had to google, "how do kids talk these days?" and "hip phrases in 2016".

The Team is still atrocious. Jom is miscast and really should never be on the team. It was almost as if Chuck wanted a bearded guy so he could talk about beards (which he does uncomfortably a lot). His Jaime Lannister moment was so flat, I was surprised he even wanted revenge at the end. Jas was basically Rocket Raccoon, but GotG2 version, minus the humor, and Sinjir was gay. No, really, that''s the biggest character development that he had from book 1 to 2 that actually made sense. In the torture scene, I was certain he liked doing it, but then he walks out a broken man? But then wants to do it again at the end and seems like he was cool with it because it was for his friends? Whatever...oh and he grew a mustache that he liked. Which was also mentioned uncomfortably a lot.

The only redeeming quality in book 1 was the Empire, and boy did they take a huge step back. I was so done with the predictability of Sloan, Rax, Adea....these are the best and brightest of the Empire? Did they learn nothing from the endless backstabbing and backdooring? Is this Big Brother? is Rax getting evicted? Who has HoH? Does Yupe Tashu have a trick up his sleeve? Find out next week on BBIIGG BROTHER!

The old characters never felt like the old characters. I know some of the EU books may have gotten the characters wrong, but boy, does Chuck not know how the heck to write Star Wars characters that already exist. Leia is a deus ex machina, turns out Mon Mothma is just a politician, Ackbar is just as confused as Sinjir about what he wants, Wedge is so awful, he''s written like a romcom character that you want to love, but the movie is so bad, and Han...Han Solo might be the worst written Han in any book series out there. Chuck wanted him to come across as heroic, but he''s just a deadbeat dad-to-be. This is probably the most unforgivable of Chuck''s many sins. A pregnant wife means nothing to the power of friendship.

The writing, of course, is poor. I actually don''t mind the present tense narrative he uses. It''s interesting and original. His downfall comes when he tries to describe any kind of anything. It''s either boring or overly descriptive. There is no middle ground in this book. He straddled the GRRM Line with the overly descriptive nature of Kashyyk, to underwhelmingly so, as with Leia''s saving of Han and Co. with the fleet. From the book: "The battle rages for some time." A whole battle, described in a sentence.

Character development is nonexistent, evident from the beginning where Norra worries about Temmin''s thirst for TIE Fighter blood & never thinks to address it with him later on because it never comes up again at all, Sinjir''s apparent thirst for torture, Sloan''s disturbing passivity after being the baddest chick in the club, and Jas and Jom''s will-they-won''t-they routine that goes on far too long. To his credit, he didn''t try to kill everyone 4 or 5 times again.

No review of this awful book would be complete without a mention of kissing or sex scenes. They are written as if by a teenager who has never has a kiss, but imagines it would be just like TV. For example, right from the get go, we have to slog through way too many paragraphs of this awkward courtship (I''ll save you the trouble: between Jas and Jom), literally behind an apparently thin closed door, with everyone (incl. 15-year old Temmin) listening and gawking. I half expected the crew to bust out laughing, Norra shrug and make a silly "what''s going on??" face, and a silly music score to play as the scene faded to black. Any scenes where characters expressed feelings or kissed was just way too long and painfully awkward to read.

Save yourself the trouble and just don''t read this book. It''s bad.

Usually the middle section of a trilogy, whether movie or story or book, shines the most. This is due to the second installment being free of any need to establish the characters or the over arching conflict. However this novel falls to free itself from exposition and a sense of burden by the author to convince the reader that they should care about the story and characters. Even a shoddy attempt at throwing in the main characters of Leia Organa and Han Solo couldn''t help. They had a feeling of just being there to placate fans that were upset of the absence of the movie characters from the last novel. Somehow this sequel is even more tiresome and worthless than the first. At the price of its conclusion as it sits, it''s not worth the $15 to even bother reading how all this ends. I''ll just look it up at the Star Wars Wikia.

Too much jumping
Reviewed in the United States on June 23, 2018
The story is okay, but the story telling is awful. The author jumps around too often and inserts barely relevant ‘interludes’ that have no follow up and leave you wondering. I have read over 160 Star Wars EU novels and this one ranks among the worst.

2.5 stars, three only because Amazon doesn''t do fractions.

Like the first book, it''s written in third person present, which is just grating. It''s pretentious and obnoxious.

Canon charcters, as with Aftermath, suffered. It was like watching an actor playing a not well researched role and not really caring. The original characters are mostly annoying. The story didn''t get preachy, I''ll give it that, but it was clumsy. It was painfully clumsy. The New Republic wouldn''t rise this fast, and the Empire wouldn''t fall apart as quick as this shows.

I own it. I read it. As a SW fan, I''m not going to take it off my shelf. As a fan who''s first time in a movie theatre was New Hope, I''m not taking this off my shelf. Not even to reread it.

To make it short: go read the earlier Star Wars novels. They''re FAR better than the most recent additions. Super disappointing, cause I''d been a big Wendig fan, but this just... isn''t very well done.

Last Shot Alphabet Squadron Resistance Reborn From a Certain Point of View
Han Solo and Lando Calrissian are reunited on the Millennium Falcon in a galaxy-spanning novel inspired by Solo: A Star Wars Story. Set after Return of the Jedi, Alphabet Squadron follows a team of veteran pilots as they struggle to defeat the Empire once and for all. Before The Rise of Skywalker, Poe, Rey, and Finn must rebuild the Resistance after their devastating loss to the First Order. More than forty contributors lend their vision to this retelling of A New Hope. Each of the forty short stories reimagines a moment from the original film, but through the eyes of a supporting character.
