Star Wars Fan Blondie sent in the following information after listening to Star Wars: Aftermath Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Just finished listening to the audiobook for Aftermath. Not sure how or why, but it's available through Tunein Radio Premium in the Fiction section of audiobooks. Tons of interludes of what's going on around the galaxy after Endor. This can make it a little confusing at first because they don't have anything to do with the actual storyline. Admiral Rae has a mirrored chrome blaster. The start of the New Order can be seen. Han and Chewie make an appearance. Boba Fett's armor. Not mentioned by name, but I believe the Knights of Ren make an appearance a little over halfway in an interlude and it's a cool scene. Luke is only mentioned by name, Leia only seen in holovid. Jakara before the war. And lots of little references to Clones Wars/Rebels, like Wedge's mention of Fulcrum. Akiva is said to have lots of old temples and strange writing. Not sure if this will make it of future interest or just a red herring to make it seem important. Overall a pretty good story but still doesn't compare to Zahn. Still, don't wanna ruin the story. Just insight that it's real. Anyways, check it out and give it a listen. It's a really well done audiobook.
