NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Following Star Wars: Aftermath and Star Wars: Life Debt, Chuck Wendig delivers the exhilarating conclusion to the New York Times bestselling trilogy set in the years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.


As the final showdown between the New Republic and the Empire draws near, all eyes turn to a once-isolated planet: Jakku.

The Battle of Endor shattered the Empire, scattering its remaining forces across the galaxy. But the months following the Rebellion’s victory have not been easy. The fledgling New Republic has suffered a devastating attack from the Imperial remnant, forcing the new democracy to escalate its hunt for the hidden enemy.

For her role in the deadly ambush, Grand Admiral Rae Sloane is the most wanted Imperial war criminal—and one-time rebel pilot Norra Wexley, back in service at Leia’s urgent request, is leading the hunt. But more than just loyalty to the New Republic drives Norra forward: Her husband was turned into a murderous pawn in Sloane’s assassination plot, and now she wants vengeance as much as justice.

Sloane, too, is on a furious quest: pursuing the treacherous Gallius Rax to the barren planet Jakku. As the true mastermind behind the Empire’s devastating attack, Rax has led the Empire to its defining moment. The cunning strategist has gathered the powerful remnants of the Empire’s war machine, preparing to execute the late Emperor Palpatine’s final plan. As the Imperial fleet orbits Jakku, an armada of Republic fighters closes in to finish what began at Endor. Norra and her crew soar into the heart of an apocalyptic clash that will leave land and sky alike scorched. And the future of the galaxy will finally be decided.

It was no Thrawn trilogy and I prefer that universe over this but overall it wasn't too bad with some interesting characters and tie ins to other media. Well worth a read for any Star Wars fan.

This book is way better than the first in the trilogy, but I prefer the second book more. This book isn't as choppy, and the characters grow in an interesting direction. Some of them don't get a good ending, sadly. Despite that, the growth is good. Characters that aren't likeable get better. The plot makes more sense too. This book explains the beginning of the first order, and that makes it more interesting.

A serviceable conclusion. But nothing worth repeating. Admittedly, I'm interested in the future of a couple of the characters, and with this series being canon, I'd be disappointed if none at all showed up, as all are young enough to make it to the latest movie trilogy.

The first book is really slow, but the second one is fast fun and thrilling.
