Star Wars – Rogue Planet

Bonus Star Wars book review! This week’s random pick falls somewhere between Chuck Wendig’s recent book for the new movies, and Timothy Zahn’s no-longer-canon trilogy from the 90’s. Greg Bear released this one in 2000 as a follow-up to The Phantom Menace, a film which I’m sure a lot of people wish wasn’t canon anymore.

Star Wars: Rogue Planet follows Obi-Wan and Anakin as they travel to the mysterious planet of Zonama Sekot, rumored source of ships which may be the fastest in the galaxy, and which also may be alive.

Review: Rogue One

Review: Rogue One

Last year when The Force Awakens came out Star Wars fans felt like they had been given a gift from the nerd gods and also an apology for the prequels. Hate it or love it, The Force Awakens brought back Star Wars in a big way. Giving us a new, yet familiar story, for all generations to enjoy. If Force Awakens was the movie you waited for to remind you of the joy you can have in the Star Wars universe, then Rogue One is the movie you have been waiting 30 years for. Because it’s one of the best Star Wars films made, ranking right next to Empire.

Review: Star Wars Aftermath – Life Debt

Review: Star Wars Aftermath – Life Debt

The journey to The Force Awakens continues in the second book of Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy.

The scrappy band of misfits, bounty hunters, and former soldiers introduced in the first book has been successfully (for the most part) tracking down high-ranking Imperial officers and dragging them back to the New Republic.

Far from being wiped out, the remnants of the Empire are stubbornly holding on to the planets they control and gathering their forces for another attack against the New Republic. But while some Imperial officers truly believe that having the Empire in charge would be better for the galaxy (certainly better than the chaos that’s going to result from the New Republic’s idealistic half-measures), others are working behind the scenes to return to the days of secret police, puppet governments, and an Emperor like Palpatine. Only much worse.

Review: Dark Force Rising

Timothy Zahn’s  Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy books may not be canon anymore, but they still hold a special place in the hearts of folks like me who remember what it was like to wait for almost a decade to find out what happened after Return of the Jedi. I reviewed the first book of the trilogy last year (link!), so it only makes sense to review the second one while we wait for Star Wars: Rogue One to be released.
