Cure for the Aftermath Blues

I can't say how much better Lost Stars was than Aftermath. A single storyline, tieing into the Saga but only as background.

True Imperial devotee and absolute synic journeying through military life, the reign and fall of the Empire. This is what Star Wars books are at their best. They tell a story anyone could relate to, if they only lived in a galaxy far, far away.

Thank you Ms. Gray for restoring my faith in the new Star Wars canon. Please come back and write more for us fans!

- Matt H.

Very enjoyable with believable characters.

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

The characters are well written and very believable. It also shows a side rarely explored. 2 normal people who served the Empire, caught up in the wonders of a galaxy never seen, to belatedly find out they boarded a sinking ship! They slowly learn the Empire they thought, that brought hope and order, only brought death, and misery and had to figure out, what to do with themselves. The relationship between the 2 main characters both changing and being tested over time, was also masterfully written. Must read...listen! Ahem!


What other book might you compare Star Wars: Lost Stars to and why?

The Fate of the Jedi series from EU. The relationship of Ben Skywalker and Vestara, is one of the few times a friendship turned love, was also handled so well. The whole, "from the other side of the fence...", but I still want you aspect. It was handled well.


Which scene was your favorite?

Anything with both mains in it.


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

yes


Any additional comments?

If you remotely like Star Wars and want a SW book that can handle love/lust and unbreakable bonds, get it! It's not just some rehash of the movies, but slightly retold. The description does it no justice. It has some of the historical moments of the movies yes, but cleverly worked in and not shoe horned. Wish the last 7 minutes were about the main characters, but that was my only complaint.
