Summary:

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.

    This was an excellent book. The action was well written and narrated. I? can’t wait to finish this trilogy with next book, “Empire’s End”

  • Justin U

    I pretty much suffer through this series as I'm trying to mine the tiny nuggets of info for the new canon. Far too many "convenient" occurrences don't allow for any risk. You just know in your heart of hearts no one is going to die, no matter how close it gets. But there were some interesting bits. I do love Mr. Bones. Narration is really good, which made this bearable.

  • Steven Shultz

    This follow up book was easier to follow along with than the Aftermath book 1. There were a couple off shoots but they didn't distract. Definatly gives more insight on how the Empire begins its change.

  • Donovan Patar

    Best sci Fi audio book I have listened to. Just as good as book one.

  • James Krause

    This series seems to be necessary to the SW universe. Necessary doesn't mean enjoyable. The usage of old characters seems incredibly forced and their appearance only seems to serve as a scale for new characters. Bones particularly is a deus ex machina employed to an eyerolling degree. If this wasn't SW, it wouldn't matter.

  • Aaron Oelschlager

    Great book! The chapters are reasonable length and present good stopping points.

  • Aubrey Gibson

    This book is Stud muffin out of control!

  • Nick Loy

    Marc Thompson is always good. Let me first say, this book is better than the first one, but that's not saying much. Needless to say, I will not be listening to the third installment. Recommend Bloodline and Lost Stars instead.
