Star Wars Aftermath: Life Debt
After the events depicted in Star Wars: Aftermath, the rag tag team of former Imperials, SpecForces and Rebellion sympathizers have been tasked (by Princess Leia, herself) to find Han Solo. Solo was last seen in a non-rebellion approved mission trying to free Wookies on Kashyyk.
However, in addition to freeing Wookies, including Chewbacca and Han Solo, lots of Imperial prisoners are freed. Among them is Norra Wexley’s husband (and Temmin’s father), Brentin. That throws a wrench into her burgeoning relationship with Wedge Antilles.
On the other side of the galaxy, Gallius Rax (Palaptine’s former advisor) is working with Grand Admiral Rae Sloane to consolidate every remnant of the Empire. While he amasses his Shadow Council, Rae finds herself questioning Rax’s endgame. Rax’s plans are revealed to be very devious–even for the Empire.
The newly freed prisoners are programmed to kill. Will the Rebellion learn of the plans before it’s too late, or will the Empire get one final push at conquering the Rebellion… Time is ticking–will it be too late?
I really loved this novel more than I anticipated. I was so happy that I was able to track the progress of the Empire after Episode VI, in preparation for new Star Wars movies!
