This isn’t the first new canon book I’ve read, but it is the first I’ve reviewed here. I need to remedy that! I will soon
So Aftermath! This is the first book set post Return of the Jedi. I got the book at midnight at a signing with the author, which was fun. I actually had started it earlier in the day at Target because they had it on the shelf. Oops!
Overall, I liked it. There was a LOT going on, but I liked the main storyline on Akiva with Norra, Temmin, Jas, and Sinjir. (I may have those names spelled wrong. I’ll double check when I have my physical copy with me.) But I liked them and all the twists.
I was less enthused by the Imperial storylines, though it was cool to see Rae Sloane again after A New Dawn. I’m confused by the epilogue. So confused.
I liked the interludes that showed the effect of the Rebels actions on various planets. It was definitely thought provoking.
