This marks the second annual give away of the Legends Library Card and the three year anniversary of the Legends Library Podcast. Luke and Randy are joined by this year’s winner, Cole Peel, from Alba, Texas. He chose the book Death Star to review, written by Michael Reaves and Steve Perry. Spanning a period of the three-year construction of the Death Star we learn of the lives of a band of characters that find themselves stuck on a super-weapon. This ragtag bunch of friends will do what they can to escape before the Rebellion attacks. Some make it to safety some are less fortunate. Tune in to find who escapes to fight another day.
