Aftermath: Empire's End by Chuck Wendig
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The first two Aftermath books weren't absolutely stellar, and neither was this one, really, but Empire's End does improve on its predecessors. Thanks to this book, not only do we get a good sense of how the Empire could keep on enduring, even for a hot minute, after Palpatine died, but also more involvement from Han and Leia (even as the latter comes close to delivering little baby Ben, the future Kylo Ren), and more insight into what exactly happened on Jakku (seriously, why does everyone wanna go back there?)
Sure, this trilogy's pretty divisive, but I'd say it's well worth the read, especially once you reach this final novel.
