Overview

Set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the never-before-told story that began with Star Wars: Aftermath continues in this thrilling novel, the second book of Chuck Wendig’s New York Times bestselling trilogy.

This Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition includes a pull out poster featuring Millennium Falcon blueprints.

It is a dark time for the Empire . . . 

The Emperor is dead, and the remnants of his former Empire are in retreat. As the New Republic fights to restore a lasting peace to the galaxy, some dare to imagine new beginnings and new destinies. For Han Solo, that means settling his last outstanding debt, by helping Chewbacca liberate the Wookiee’s homeworld of Kashyyyk.
 
Meanwhile, Norra Wexley and her band of Imperial hunters pursue Grand Admiral Rae Sloane and the Empire’s remaining leadership across the galaxy. Even as more and more officers are brought to justice, Sloane continues to elude the New Republic, and Norra fears Sloane may be searching for a means to save the crumbling Empire from oblivion. But the hunt for Sloane is cut short when Norra receives an urgent request from Princess Leia Organa. The attempt to liberate Kashyyyk has carried Han Solo, Chewbacca, and a band of smugglers into an ambush—resulting in Chewie’s capture and Han’s disappearance.
 
Breaking away from their official mission and racing toward the Millennium Falcon’s last known location, Norra and her crew prepare for any challenge that stands between them and their missing comrades. But they can’t anticipate the true depth of the danger that awaits them—or the ruthlessness of the enemy drawing them into his crosshairs.

The first book of the aftermath series struggle with many of the problems commonly encountered in the first of a planned trilogy. It had to introduce us to a set of new characters, establish them within the universe in a way that makes sense both for them as individuals and in the larger narrative, and do so without losing too much momentum in the process. These challenges resulted in many negative and at times overly critical reviews, which often downplayed the developing relationships between characters, and the artful connections to the larger Galactic story. Life Debt is able to capitalize on the ground work from Aftermath. We are immediately thrust into a complex and intriguing set of conflicts which provide useful insights into the Star Wars universe. Unlike its predecessor, this book also brings in more established Star Wars Universe characters and give them larger roles to play. In particular, we get to spend significant amounts of Time with Han Solo, Princess Leia, and the Wookiee Chewbacca as they explore the problems of Galactic Senate inaction healthy plague of slavery under the empire. Even if you didn't enjoy the first Aftermath book you should still consider giving this read. Regarding complaints that this series has an overt and ham fisted LGBT agenda, I would say that readers who are bothered by the presence of a gay character in a Star Wars book might need to address their own issues.

I tried his first aftermath book and almost fell at the beginning. It took halfway through the book to somewhat start to get interesting. It did help introduce a new villain at the end that may be crutch to other plots in the future and also reintroduce and deepen a few other characters. Overall it was mediocre. Hopefully this new book will be a chance to redeem himself.

Another excellent installment of the Aftermath trilogy! Wendig builds on the fantastic characters from the first book, and draws us deeper into the conflict and conspiracies of a dying Empire versus the fledgling New Republic. Really loved his handling of characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. I thought he did a great job of balancing keeping them who they were, while also letting them continue to grow. The cast from the first book continues to grow on me, and the plot pushes ever closer to the galaxy as we know it in The Force Awakens. Wendig is doing an outstanding job of bridging the gap between films. Can’t wait for Empire’s End.
