Chuck Wendig: Star Wars Aftermath Life Debt Book Review

If there’s one constant in the nearly dozen Star Wars novels released since Disney reset the canon of the expanded universe, it’s that’s the best ones have been those most connected to the movies. It’s why Claudia Gray’s original trilogy-overlapping Lost Stars and Greg Rucka’s Force Awakens prequel Star Wars Before The Awakening have been the strongest, while Chuck Wendig’s “it’s post-Return Of The Jedi but where did everybody go?” Star Wars Aftermath, though entertaining, is one of the weakest. Thankfully, for the second book in his Aftermath trilogy, Star Wars Aftermath Life Debt (hardcover, digital), Wendig is bringing back some old friends for a much more exciting and satisfying adventure.
