StarWars Aftermath by Chuck Wendig was released on 09/04/15. Star Wars fans have had very high expectations for this title. Many may not realize that this is the first book of a trilogy of books, which does make a difference.
As far as the novel goes, the first third of the book was slow. The second third was better and the final third was good. The Empire's Rae Sloane who previously appeared in the novel "A New Dawn," was a bright spot in the novel.
The interludes showing glimpses of the Galaxy were more interesting than a lot of the main story. There was a heavy focus on new characters made this book just little bit less accessible.
Overall, I give the story 3.5 Stars out of 5, and the performance by Marc Thompson 5 Stars our of 5. He is fantastic in all of the audio books that I have listened to.
You can listen to this new Star Wars novel for free. If you're new to Audible, you can sign-up for a free trial that includes two free audio books. I would also recommend Dark Disciple or Lords of the Sith. Sign-up today.
