Empire's End: Aftermath (Star Wars) by Chuck Wendig and Marc Thompson - Audiobook - Listen OnlineI received a review copy from the publisher. This does not affect the contents of my review and all opinions are my own. The Aftermath trilogy may have gotten off to a shaky start, but the good news is that things have been steadily turning around ever since Life Debt improved on many of the problems that plagued the first novel. To be honest, I thought the first book was very forgettable. The plot was fun but fluffy, lacking any real weight.
Audiobook Review: Star Wars: Aftermath: Empire’s End by Chuck Wendig
Is it because we are ACTUALLY incapable of EVER mentioning Han Solo in any scene without a stirring description of how his eyes glisten with the ghosts of his previous bachelor freedoms and current discomfort with the role of settled-down father and husband. Count Wilhelm What really bothered me about Empire's End is the relentlessly disgusting violence. Understanding the need to see the enemy put down once and for all, they team up with Chancellor Mon Mothma to convince others in the senate that the vote to bring the fleet to Jakku must pass.Finally - and this is an even bigger double edged sword than the rest - Jar Jar shows up and is verbally slapped about for his stupidity.

Empire's End: Aftermath (Star Wars)
When it comes to storytelling, whether in film or in literature, a trilogy is hard to beat. The first installment introduces the characters and the rules, and usually ends up with a win for the heroes. The second part increases the stakes and changes the rules, and by the final installment, the audience is left wondering who will be left standing when the rules are completely thrown away. In the Aftermath trilogy, author Chuck Wendig has told the story of what has happened after Return of the Jedi , with new and returning heroes and villains facing off, as the Empire struggles to survive while the Rebellion transitions to be the New Republic. Chuck Wendig conversed with StarWars. What was it like fleshing out this key chapter of the Star Wars saga?
Starting with the above example first, and it does at least grant a brief look into what Jakku was like before the big war went down. There's a lot to be thankful for with this final volume of Chuck Wendig's Aftermath trilogy. He does so many voices and really adds that extra something that makes this a mandatory audio selection for me.
