Anyone here planning to read this one that would be willing to give me a good spoilery synopsis? I'd rather not read Wendig's stuff, but am interested in what the "canon" story is.

Wookiepedia will have your back.

I won't read his stuff either.

It would probably be best if someone did read it and posted here about it, instead of just going to wook.

But I don't even know what that book is, so it won't be me either. haha

I'll be reading it when it comes out. According to Del Rey, someone dies in the book. I've read the first two so it'll be interesting to see if they keep getting better or not. The first book had issues, and I liked the 2nd one, so we'll see.

DS, will you be willing to provide a detailed synopsis with spoilers when you finish it? Or even as you are reading it?

I probably will be reading it, but I have no idea when. It's not huge on my priority list, so it could be years.

I'm planning on reading it after rereading Aftermath and Lifedebt. But I'll leave the summary to Wookieepedia. Wink

Well, it's out. So far, on my FB feed, I see that Screenrant is posting some spoilers. I haven't read the articles, just the headlines.

So, we find supposedly find out:

I'm halfway through and enjoying it so far. There's some cool stuff in it, and I like how some of the interludes are playing out.

Spoilers...

Finished the book and it's my favorite of the three. I think Wendig got his groove with this one.

Now for some spoilers for Skywalker2B...major, major spoilers.

I just...I can't. I flipped through your spoilers SKuls and there's some interesting stuff but there's not enough to get me to read a Wendig book again.

Thanks, DS. I've gotten just about all of the spoilers I needed, so I'm going to skip this one too.

I didn't like Aftermath, and I thought Life Debt was better, but Empire's End was genuinely good. I liked it. And it's kind of essential if you're going to get into the new canon as it lays down the foundation of the New Republic. His writing is pretty good in this one.

I still don't like Norra, though. That's one character I could never get on board with. She's just as hard to relate to in this one as ever. I mean she makes some really dumb decisions.

Hold out for the paperback if you need to, or the library. That would be my advice. It is the best of the three Wendig books.
