There has been much to say about Chuck Wendig’s all important Aftermath. This is not only his first Star Wars novel, the first adult Star Wars novel to use present tense, and our first literary look of what it’s like on Jakku, but it’s also the first post-Return of the Jedi novel since the books became canon. What Timothy Zahn once did for the EU, Chuck Wendig is now doing for canon. What did the Rebellion do following the attack on Endor? What was the Empire’s reaction to the death of their top leadership? What comes next? These are the subjects being tackled. This is the groundwork being laid for which all future canon novels in the post-ROTJ era will be based. The question is, does Aftermath pull it off?
