The second Death Star has been destroyed, the emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down. Devastating blows against the Empire and major victories for the Rebel Alliance. But the battle for freedom is far from over. As the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance - now a fledgling New Republic - presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy's scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate. But above the remote planet Akiva, an ominous show of the enemy's strength is unfolding.

The ancillary characters are boring and the story has little to do with the fall of the Empire.

Elliot Jefferson moved to the isolated Estates of North Hills to work on his sobriety and avoid other people at all costs. But when the electric transformers around the complex begin emitting a horrible buzz that he calls "the Squall", neither is easy to achieve. Because some of his neighbors are acting strange. Twitching, fighting, and muttering about voices only they can hear. Soon Elliot will find himself face-to-face with the worst humanity has to offer, as wives imprison husbands, children butcher parents, and those under the Squall's influence go to insane lengths to keep their secret safe. If he wants to survive, Elliot must discover the awful truth for himself, and lead a small group of innocents to safety...before they're all just as doomed as their neighbors.

The story seems like it's something that really could happen and the violence is cringeworthy brutal. Edge of your seat suspense.

Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content. From the ashes of the Empire has arisen another threat to the galaxy’s freedom: the ruthless First Order. Fortunately, new heroes have emerged to take up arms - and perhaps lay down their lives - for the cause.

As If The Last Jedi could get worse. The novelization only added to the absurdity of the movie. The prologue is so confusing and the added scenes just make it worse.

Although THE most anticipated Star Wars book ever! It is somewhat slow and the voice acting in chapter 18 is hard to listen to.

It's just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He's daydreaming through another boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom - if he can make it that long without getting suspended again. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer.

This is a great collection of short stories featuring the popular Forgotten Realms character, Drizzt, a Drow Ranger. Several stories include narration by some great actors and voice talents including Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day, Sean Astin, David Duchovny and even 'Weird' Al Yankovic. I loved almost all of them, especially the one read by Duchovny but I didn't care much for the one featuring the voice of Ice-T. If you're a fan of Drizzt or D&D adventures you'll love it!
