Empire and Rebellion #3 Synopsis

A new catalog listing has popped up for the upcoming Empire and Rebellion #3, by Kevin Hearne. Link

This is an audio listing for the book, but the synopsis should be the same:

Kevin Hearne, New York Times best-selling author of the hugely popular Iron Druid Chronicles series-including Hounded, Hexed, and Hunted-makes his Star Wars debut with an action-packed classic Star Wars adventure, starring Luke, with pals Han, and Princess Leia!

In an attempt to distract the Empire from important Rebel Alliance activity, Luke Skywalker draws the attention of Imperial Security, leading him-along with Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, and Chewbacca-into a deadly trap right in Darth Vader’s sights!

Megan’s Review: Honor Among Thieves

Honor Among Thieves

- Minor Spoiler Review -

The writing team of James. S. A. Corey bring strong prose and organic dialogue to their brisk Han Solo tale in Honor Among Thieves. This is a Han who sounds like his A New Hope self, with dialogue that is legitimately funny and filled with attitude. It’s one of the more quotable Star Wars books – I found myself reading funny dialogue even to friends who aren’t into the franchise.

Comic Review: The Star Wars #5

#5 copy

The previous issue was a return to form and left off with our very large group of heroes looking to sneak off Aquilae. The Star Wars #5 picks up right at that moment, but quickly gets lost amongst a sea of pacing issues and the most bizarre and sudden love story since…well, ever. At least the art is still great.

The Ghost’s Pilot and the Crew’s Heart: Hera Joins Rebels Cast

Our last, but definitely not least, heroine from Star Wars: Rebels was revealed by Entertainment Weekly this morning: Hera. She is the pilot of the Ghost, which Dave Filoni says, “She’s the one who got it, bought it, swindled it out of someone, however you want it.” Hera, a Twi’lek, will not only be the captain of the ship, but of the entire crew, functioning as the leader and their heart. She’s definitely capable of taking care of herself and chooses to help take care of our crew, holding them together. Sounds like a captain I could get behind. Vanessa Marshall provides the voice, who seems just as excited as I am to follow Hera’s journey, “Every time we get a script I’m breathless with anticipation, because I want to see where we’re going to.”
