The years after the emperors death

Star Wars crimson empire is a good story about an imperial soldier but to be more accurate an Imperial guard that is found out his emperor was betrayed. He finds out that damper was betrayed by one of his fellow Royal guardsmen. He sets out to topple the corrupt leaders that are taking the troll of the empire and the individual that betrayed The Emperor. This is a really good book I would suggest taking Alyssa and is a very compelling story that leaves you with a lot of questions throughout. It's very enjoyable.

Classic radio show

What made the experience of listening to Star Wars the most enjoyable?

The format for this is not a book, but like that of the 50's radio programs. For a sc-fi like this makes the battles hard to picture, but the pace of the story is good.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Wars?

tells of the time after the emperor dies what it was like for the empire.

Which scene was your favorite?

the one where at the end of the story where the friend of the rebels dies she takes it to heart and swears to hunt down the guy who was up front about it all.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes. when driving a truck 11 hours a day. 2 hrs is not scratching the surface of one day.
