Retro Reviews: ‘Aftermath: Life Debt’ by Chuck Wendig

Aftermath: Life Debt is the second novel in the Aftermath trilogy written by Chuck Wendig and released in July of 2016. 

When I first read Life Debt, I liked it a whole lot more than the first Aftermath book. I think that this has the effect of being more popular because it includes major characters like Han and Leia, but it also kind of explains what’s happening to the greater galaxy at large. While those are things the first book was lacking, I still had several problems with this book, many of which were present in the first book.

Retro Reviews: ‘Bloodline’ by Claudia Gray

September 22, 2020 at 5:35 am | Posted in Books, Random House, Regular Feature, Retro Reviews, Reviews, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | 1 Comment

Bloodline by Claudia Gray, is an adult canon novel set roughly six years before the events of The Force Awakens. It was released in May of 2016.

I remember loving this book when it first came out. I was still inexperienced in reading books and so it took me a while to get into it. But when you combine Claudia Gray, politics, and Star Wars, you are sure to have a great book.

The first thing I’d like to point out is that Claudia Gray absolutely nails the character of Leia. All of her lines, her actions, her motivations, and her feelings felt completely in tune with what we see in the movies, and Claudia just makes me feel so bad for all the bad things in her life. Despite all of the good in her life, Leia has one of the most tragic stories in Star Wars, and this book shows how difficult public service can be.
