An epic finale to an under appreciated series

I have heard a lot of negative criticism towards the Aftermath trilogy. Some deserved, but most definitely undeserved. Yes, the first book was not really good, but books two and three were definitely steps in the right direction. Yes, the writing style might not be one you like, but I still haven’t read anything weirder than N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy with their second person narration and those got her the Hugo three years in a row! So I have to judge this book, and the trilogy as a whole for what it does, provide some explanations as to how the galaxy ended up where it was when TFA released.

Empire’s End deals with the battle of Jakku, the sandy planet where we found Rey at the beginning of the sequel trilogy. Most importantly, it tells us why a battle was fought on Jakku. Empire’s End tells us about the final demise of Palpatine’s Galactic Empire and sets up the rise of the First Order. That was all I was expecting from this trilogy, and thus it delivered.

Admittedly, after Life Debt I was expecting to see more of The Acolytes of the Beyond and I feel we didn’t get near enough.

**** Mild spoilers below ****

However, I was surprised for the things I was not expecting, and that was the setup for Rise of Skywalker. Yes, you read that right. Before The Last Jedi was released in theaters we got the first glimpse as to where the trilogy could go. And while the characters in the center of the story dismissed some of the Sith religious dogma we get to see how Jakku played and important part not just in Palpatine’s plan to eliminate the Empire in the event of his death, but how he had plans for his eventual return. We also got Thrawn references... I will always loyal good Thrawn reference.

**** Spoilers end ****

At the end of the day Empire’s End was an epic conclusion to a good trilogy, and Aftermath remains something every self appointed Star Wars fan should at least read about.

Conclusion to the Aftermath series. This series had a rocky start, but if you stuck with it, has a fun conclusion with the Battle of Jakku. The battle actually ties in nicely with the Battlefront video game as well as talks about how the Star Destroyer that the Falcon flies through in Episode VII gets there. There are some references to the Marvel comic series, although you don't need to read them to understand this book.

Mon Mothma is an interesting character that we don't see much of in other (now canon) books. I'm getting the impression that she deeply cares about democracy and doing what is right, but seems to be an ineffectual ruler of a government and works best when on her own or in small groups. Or it could just be that governments don't work too well in the Star Wars galaxy which is why we got all these wars. Either way, I would like to know more about her.

Other interesting tidbit from book.. we find out the final fate of Jar Jar Binks. ( )

More fun with Norra and her crew!

As the new canon edges out the EU, this is a good entry. I particularly like how Jar Jar is - not sure if redeemed is the right word, but it will do. A very minor point but a good one.

Now we know some more backstory on Jakku, and have some angles on the disarray of the New Republic and Resistance by the time of the Force Awakens.

It has to be tough work, trying to weave in so many details, using the classic characters *and* develop your own (including the now-film-canon Snap Wexley), and Wendig does a good job. Lots of nods to known details - and I think, not a few nods to the EU.

Queued up next: Thrawn. (First I have to finish my re-read of the Thrawn trilogy.... ( )

Simply heartbreaking. I am not sure I will be able to recover from the strong emotional ties I had to this series. ( )
