Book Review: ‘Smuggler’s Run’ by Greg Rucka

September 22, 2015 at 12:02 am | Posted in Books, Disney, Lucasfilm, Reviews, Star Wars, Star Wars Books | 1 Comment
Tags: , ,

Amidst the half dozen new Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens novels is Greg Rucka’s Smuggler’s Run. Compared to Aftermath, or Lost Stars for that matter, it’s a slim book at just 183 pages. It’s also being marketed at 8 to 12 year olds. But don’t let the age range or the page count fool you, this is a book worth checking out. Greg Rucka writes this story in a voice that’s on par with any adult Star Wars novel, and while it’s a quick read, it’s fun. Click here to read our full review.
