Another Star Wars Audio: "Star Wars: Aftermath: Life Debt" by Chuck Wendig

Another Star Wars Audio: Star Wars: Aftermath: Life Debt by Chuck Wendig, 2016, Overdrive download.

I think finished listening to this book a month or two ago. Now I do not recall too much of the story.

Han Solo has gone missing when trying to help Chewbacca on a mission to free Kashyyk. The group from the last novel is still working together as a trouble shooter team for the Republic. The Admiral from last novel is still super into the Empire and wondering who to trust among the backstabbers and ladder climbers in the Empire.

Things happen. We hang out with impulsive Han who can be a pain in the ass. Love affairs begin and end. Kashyyk is liberated from the Empire that used it as a prison planet. Some prisoners were brainwashed and are used as assassins.  Other things happen.

Things that seem obvious to point out but were important. Wendig writes about the culter of the two sides. How Imperial leaders are supposed to be imperturbable. They should not show shock or surprise.

Also how Han and Chewbacca are full partners. Han is the focus of the movies but Wendig says the two are equals and pals. Chewbacca takes the lead on Kashyyk and Han follows orders and helps where needed.

More soundalike voices for the characters:
1. Ren Hoek sounding guy.
2. Another character is a mix between James Mason and Vincent Price.
