Book Review: Star Wars: Guardians of the Whills

With the release of Rogue One came a bevy of new characters in the Star Wars universe. Two of the breakout stars of the popular film, Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus, are featured in Greg Rucka’s Star Wars Guardians of the Whills , and are more fully formed as dynamic characters in the new book. Rucka beautifully shifts the third person narrative from each main character’s perspective and provides important motivation for a richer understanding of their crusade against the Empire. The Star Wars universe has a rich history of ambiguity, regarding many of their characters’ backgrounds, and with Star Wars: Guardians of the Whills , an intriguing piece of the proverbial puzzle is provided.

Star Wars Rebels Talking Points: “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2”

The Star Wars Rebels season finale is always an event; threads are tied up, mysteries are solved, and tears are shed. Season Three is no different. Personally, I spent most of the episode full of angst and nervousness. The stakes are high, and with Grand Admiral Thrawn in hot pursuit, even the Duke boys would be in trouble (#80sReference). As with all Talking Points columns, there will be spoilers, so don’t click on the link below until you have seen “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2”.

Book Review: Aftermath: Empire’s End

Chuck Wendig’s final entry in the Aftermath trilogy, Aftermath: Empire’s End has been released, and completes the adventures of Norra Wexley and her mismatched group of miscreants. The reader journeys with Norra Wexley and bounty hunter Jas Emari in their pursuit of Grand Admiral Rae Sloane, but that is only one focal point of the narrative. We also follow Temin (“Snap”) Wexley, his wonderfully terrifying droid, Mr. Bones, and recovering Imperial Loyalty Officer, Sinjir Rath Velus as they desperately try to convince the New Republic that they must journey to Jakku (no spoilers here; once you read the book, you will understand why) for a number of reasons that are critical, both personally, as well as on a galactic scale. While it does not reach the staggering heights of Life DebtEmpire’s End is a worthy bookend to the Aftermath trilogy.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

The first ever standalone Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, debuted on December 16th, and with it comes a unique set of circumstances. At long last, the story of how the Rebellion came into possession of the Death Star plans has come into the canon of Star Wars‘ sometimes daunting mythology, and the revelation of this is unlike anything we’ve seen before on screen from a galaxy far, far away. The ramifications this film will have on future Star Wars storytelling will be intricate and, most likely, long lasting.
