Retro Reviews: ‘Empire’s End’ by Chuck Wendig

Aftermath: Empire’s End is the final book in the Aftermath trilogy, written by Chuck Wendig and released in February 2017. 

It seems like each Aftermath book has a different genre or story style, while still having the same underlying themes and tones. Aftermath is a kind of a heist book where a ragtag group comes together to rescue someone. Life Debt is more of a traditional star wars book with a hint of political thriller added to the mix. Empire’s End is more of an epic war book with some smaller stories happening inside it. I like those aspects of all three, but because they are each so different, it makes it harder to like Aftermath as a cohesive trilogy.

Retro Reviews: ‘Rogue One’ by Alexander Freed

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the second adult film novelization in the canon written by Alexander Freed and released in December of 2016.

If you’ve read my previous novelization review of The Force Awakens, you know that novelizations have a high bar with me. In fact, unless it’s something I’m really interested in, I usually skip novelizations in media tie-in fiction because they rarely add anything of value and if they do, it’s nominal. There are very few novelizations that appeal to me, and most do not.

Retro Reviews: ‘Catalyst’ by James Luceno

Catalyst by James Luceno is an adult canon book released in November of 2016. It is one of the tie-in books to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it follows the characters of Galen and Lyra Erso, Orson Krennic, and Has Obitt.

I remember in 2016 when I was just getting into Star Wars books that my parents allowed me to go the day of release to the local bookstore to snatch up my copy of Catalyst. I was incredibly excited for Rogue One, and this book was really hyped online.

Book Review: ‘The Rules of Enchantment’ by Wendy Tardieu

So there’s a first time for everything, right? Well The Rules of Enchantment is the first time I’ve read an “erotic fantasy adventure” novel. I’ve read lots of fantasy books, and some of those have gotten pretty steamy, but this of course takes it just a bit further. However, maybe not as far as you might think. If you’re a fan of fantasy stories and you like romance, this might be right up your alley.

The story takes place in a world where people gifted in magic can go to academies to learn more about spells and such. There’s an Order of Shadows, an Order of Light and an Order of Sight. Each school has a different focus on the magical arts. Beyond the magic schools, the world lives in the shadow of an event that happened long ago. A sorcerer named Malantheus and his followers crafted a powerful gauntlet that could rule the dead. They rebelled against the kingdoms of the world as they wanted to cast off the restrictions placed on magic. Malantheus was stopped, the gauntlet locked away, and his followers were doomed as spirits to haunt an enchanted forest. All of that creates the backdrop for the world.
