Ever since George Lucas made the announcement he sold his production company Lucasfilm Ltd. to The Walt Disney Company, people everywhere have been speculating on what will happen in the upcoming sequel trilogy Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. Along with the trilogy standalone spinoff films focused on characters such as Yoda, Han Solo, and Boba Fett. More points of interest will be the upcoming animated series Star Wars: Rebels for The Disney Channel and Disney XD, along with the planned live action series for ABC. Whether these predictions are right or not, they will be of interest to Star Wars fans.

If to convey my disappointment, I would flippantly say that the only thing that would've made this book better was if it had never been written. But, I won't be so crass. The author could've considered works in the larger Star Wars Universe as a basis then try to imagine what JJ Abrams would do and not just narrowly considering that everything and anything Stars Wars was in Episodes 1 - 6 and that JJ Abrams is going to be unoriginal and just retell the same story with only slight variations.
The prediction genre is not the problem. It's just the author's narrow view of Star Wars and lack of imagination. After reading this utter disappointment, it would be hard to even consider any other Justin Murphy work.
Not a single one.
Save your money… If you've read or listened to any of the other Star Wars book series, you'll be annoyed with this book.
