Star Wars: Aftermath is a Star Wars novel by Chuck Wendig, published on September 4, by Del Rey Books. Set soon after the events of the film. The novel is the first in Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy, and is part of the he sells real treasures down below, including blasters, detonators, and books. She is. Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy is a trilogy of novels written by author Chuck Wendig's Star Wars book Aftermath gets the trilogy treatment.
For now, at least. The Aftermath trilogy introduced a character who some thought would be Snoke. However, just as one theory dies, another rises. But Palpatine is not the only one who is being called by a dark presence. Leia Organa Carrie Fisher is also struggling with a dark force that seems to be focused on her unborn child, who readers know will grow up to be Kylo Ren Adam Driver. Sloane remarks that she does not know what or who is onboard the ship waiting for them.
One of the kids feels entirely out of comfort with all of the rich nobles around, and decides to run away from it all, hoping to find a transport back to Coruscant where he can rejoin the hot war between the rebels and the Empire. Finally beginning their trek into the catacombs, Jas pulls Temmin back and asks him about his crate.
When he says it's a weapon, she tells him that's he's wrong, and opens it for him. What's inside are data cubes, and they agree to sift through the information on them and sell them to the right client as soon as this is over. When they near the droid factory, Sinjir begins to probe Temmin, thinking he's hiding something secret from them down here. He throws a stone at the droid factory entrance to prove it isn't haunted, but then a mechanized howling comes from inside, and they all start running.
Admiral Ackbar has received Wedge's transmission, a very short message calling for help. He decides now is the time to act, sending a small fleet to Akiva, with more in reserves, ready to arrive at any sign of trouble. In the palace, Sloane is still attempting to calmly control the situation as the others of the IFC grow increasingly restless and angry with her. The shuttle is taking too long to arrive, she thinks, but nothing can be done about that.
She decides to call the three Star Destroyers back into the system, ready for battle when it arrives. Jas turns to fire at the oncoming horde. At first they look like droids, with glowing eyes and mechanized wails, running along the walls like spiders. However, as they approach, she realizes they're not droids, but creatures, noseless with a mouth full of sharp teeth, identified by Temmin as Uugteen.
They keep getting closer and closer, an entire hive, and she can't stop them. Temmin comes back, tugs on her shoulder, telling her to come along, and she relents. As they start running, he realizes they have a box of detonators. Pulling Mister Bones along, who wants to stand and fight to protect Temmin, he pulls one detonator out of the box, setting it, and then throwing it back into the box. They all sprint for safety. When the tunnel explodes, a huge collapse happens and the Uugteen are blocked off from following them.
With no explosives to blow their way into the palace, Sinjir decides that he will head to the surface to contact the palace himself, pretending to be an Imperial once again. His plan is to tell them to open the doors to the catacombs from the inside, telling them it's their only path to safety.
On Tatooine , a man named Adwin Charu , a member of a new local mining company, is attempting to download goods from the Jawas in one of their massive sandcrawlers. Knowing there are real goods hidden in there, he keeps trying to tell them that he doesn't want the junk they have on display, but they won't listen. A local named Cobb Vanth shows up and tells him that he must build rapport with the Jawas by first downloading small stuff, before they'll let him see the good stuff. He offers to take Adwin in, and they go.
Soon, they start arguing over a set of Mandalorian armor , and Cobb shoots Adwin. Styling himself Sheriff Vanth, he tells Adwin that he won't let the crime syndicates come to Tatooine under the guise of mining companies and take over his planet after the fall of the Hutt Cartel. Back on Akiva, Jom Barell is trying to save the day singlehandedly. Knowing the coordinates of one of the turbolasers, he takes out the three stormtroopers guarding it while injured, with the goal of shooting down any Imperial ships.
When he sits down in the console, he sees a large yacht with an Imperial code descending towards the palace. Instead of firing at the ship, the turbolaser makes a clicking sound, showing that it was damaged by the fight with the stormtroopers. He races to fix it. Jas, Temmin, Norra, and Mister Bones lie waiting to ambush stormtroopers outside of the palace, so that they can then sneak in.
However, instead of coming through the gate, stormtroopers sneak up on them from behind, blocking any escape route.
Norra has a chilling moment where she feels that Sinjir sold them out. Captured, they enter the palace as prisoners, and soon Sinjir is hauled out with them, hands bound and face bloodied.
Then Temmin stands up and walks over to Sloane, asking her to honor their deal and let him, his droid, and his mother go, but Sloane refuses to let anyone go but him.
In shock, Temmin calls for his droid to help, but they take Mister Bones down before he can even move, and Sloane fires six shots straight into his head, completely destroying it and knocking it off. They then take Temmin to the roof with the intent of throwing him off the edge. Crassus' yacht finally arrives at the palace. When some protesters futilely throw rocks at the ship, some stormtroopers fire at the crowd, but Sloane pulls them back and chastises them.
The stormtroopers throw Temmin off the walls of the palace, but the crowd catches him, carrying him. He then runs to the walls and begins scaling them, drawing on his skills from his youth in the streets.
Right as the yacht takes off, with the members of the IFC and the prisoners captured on Akiva onboard, Temmin scales the wall. He grabs the vibroblade of a fallen guard and uses it to make a running jump into the air, catching onto the ship. As soon as he makes it into the ship through a window, stormtroopers arrive, so he runs.
Jom Barell can't figure out how to make the turbolaser work, so in frustration he slams on the console repeatedly. Suddenly, the turbolaser activates, homes in on the yacht, and fires. The yacht is shot right in the middle, but can still fly, albeit detached into two barely connected parts. The stormtroopers chasing Temmin vanish into the air, and Temmin barely hangs on inside. Then, the rebel fleet arrives in space. On Bespin , in Cloud City , a rich old man from Onderon has his house sacked by rebels.
He refuses to give in to them, calling them traitors, and when they tell him that the Emperor is dead and that the holovids of him alive and well are a fraud, he refuses to believe them. They then take him captive. Commander Agate leads the New Republic forces into battle, shaking as she always does. The battle quickly swings in their favor. On Crassus' limping yacht, Temmin uses the maintenance shaft connecting the two separated parts of the ship to pick the locks on the handcuffs of his friends, and they take Pandion hostage.
The yacht crash lands on the Vigilance , killing Crassus, but allowing Jas to capture Tashu and Shale. Rae and her pilot, Morna, escape on a Lambda-class shuttle in the landing bay, so Norra takes a TIE fighter and follows them through the raging battle.
She comms the rebel fleet and tells them that she's in a TIE, and they join her in chasing down the shuttle. On the shuttle, Pandion appears and attempts to take control away from Sloane, but she disarms him and locks him away. She then blows up the shuttle, escaping in an escape pod with Morna to the only Star Destroyer still intact, the Vanquish. The Vanquish then takes off through hyperspace, a big victory for the New Republic. Although Norra was injured in the shuttle explosion, she came to a full recovery, along with Wedge Antilles.
Meanwhile, Sloane escaped to the Vulpinus Nebula, where a growing Imperial fleet lurks. She speaks with the fleet admiral Gallius Rax , her superior, who tells her that the summit on Akiva was a test for her, which she passed, and that it helped weed out those in Imperial service who were weak.
Aftermath was originally planned for release in November , before being moved forward to September 4. Upon being approached to write the book, Wendig had a reaction of "girlish joy.
The novel's chapter headings made use of an early design for the New Republic , the successor government to the Alliance to Restore the Republic. On September 21 , , Del Rey released an official colorized version of the emblem via social media, which served as the first canon depiction of the government's insignia.
Reaction to Aftermath has been mixed. As of November 1, , 1, reviews of the title had been posted on site. The most helpful critical review according to the site's visitors stated that while it "wasn't as abysmal as other reviewers made it out to be" and there were certain things he liked, such as a reference to " Fulcrum " and the well-rounded nature of the character Admiral Sloane , it wasn't his favorite Star Wars read and there were many things he didn't like: He found himself interested in the "nuanced cast of characters" and also enjoyed the vignettes throughout the novel, rather than simply its main story.
Jared Petty of the popular entertainment site IGN reviewed the novel and rated it "mediocre," stating that it was "well-written but ultimately disappointing. The author, Chuck Wendig, took to his blog in response to the negative reception, and supplied a scathing retort criticizing those of his detractors who hated the book because of it containing gay characters, comparing these readers to the Empire.

He and his fellow five commandos make a jump from a shuttle into the air, and right as they jump, the shuttle that they jumped from blows up.
Then the bright flash of turbolaser, and one of his fellow commandos is shot down.
Soon, Barell is the only one left alive, and he makes a very rough crash landing on the planet surface below. On the planet Sevarcos , a site where the Empire used slaves to mine spice, a battle between the New Republic and Empire rages. Three slaves are huddled away from the battle, torn about what to do.
One of them says they must run before the Empire wins and sends them back into the mines. However, the Wookiee among them suggests they charge into battle, believing they should help the Republic soldiers defeat the Imperials. He runs out, ducking laserfire, to release some rancors kept captive by the slavers, and unleashes them onto the battlefield. The tide of the battle is turned, and the New Republic wins. The three slaves decide to explore the galaxy on their own, free to do as they please now.
Part Three Edit The shooting down of the commandos has sent the meeting of the Imperial Future Council into even more chaos. Pandion suggests they fight the New Republic head on, knowing that they will soon send their fleet, but Shale believes this will only lead to the defeat of the Empire once and for all.
Sloane tries to calm everyone down and pretend that nothing bad is happening, and finally they agree to once again start the meeting. Meanwhile, Jom Barell wakes up from his crash landing to see three stormtroopers standing in front of him, which he quickly disposes of despite the pain he is in.
Norra and Jas travel together through Myrra, the capital of Akiva. They see a random citizen throw a rotten fruit at a pair of stormtroopers, a good sign that the people are fed up with the Imperial occupation.
Jas heads to Temmin's shop, where she clears out the thugs who were attempting to drill their way to the lower half of his shop, where the real goods lie.
They then head to the rooftops, where two TIEs are parked. While Norra distracted the pilots, Jas used her sniper to take them down. Norra then steals one of the TIEs. Meanwhile, Sinjir walks up to an Imperial communications station, telling the stormtroopers he is an Imperial and demands to see their officer. Grudgingly, they call up their officer, and when the scans ensure that he really is Sinjir Rath Velus, who is supposed to be dead, they let him in.
Inside, Sinjir steals the officer's pistol, shooting him in the back, and Mister Bones jumps in, taking care of the two stormtroopers.
Once in the comm station, they make a holovid showing a supposed stormtrooper shooting an innocent kid in the back and laughing. They then broadcast this across Myrra, planting the seeds for an uprising.
On the planet Taris , three Acolytes of the Beyond , Sith worshippers, download a lightsaber from a dealer who claims the lightsaber belonged to Darth Vader before his death.
They say they plan on destroying it, so that it can return to its master in death. However, while the lightsaber's blade is red, there is no guarantee it was actually Vader's. At the comm station, Temmin, Sinjir, and Mister Bones head to the rooftop to escape. On the roof, they hear the distinctive sound of TIE fighters, as two appear in the sky.
They take cover as the TIE's shell the comm station with laserfire, intent on destroying it before more propaganda can be spread. Mister Bones jumps into the air as the second TIE passes, breaking its windshield and taking it to the ground. A third TIE enters the fray and starts shooting at the first, blindsiding it and taking it out of the sky: Norra has entered the fray.
She takes off for the satraps palace, but is dogged by two more TIE's. Taking down one, she aims for the shuttles that are the Imperials' only lifeline off this planet. Admiral Sloane sees this from the ground and, thinking quickly, fires a turbolaser at Norra from the ground, totally destroying her right wing and sending her into a death spiral.
Norra aims for the shuttles as her crash site, with one last wish that they actually put ejector seats in these fighters. Sloane looks out from the palace windows to survey the damage.
All three Imperial shuttles have been taken down, but fortunately Crassus' yacht wasn't on the planet and is still functional. She notices a growing crowd outside of the palace; Akivans who are ready for change, creating a dull roar of noise.
She returns back to the meeting and tells the rest of them that they will be leaving on Crassus' yacht as soon as it arrives back on the planet. In hyperspace, Han Solo and Chewbacca travel to Dasoor.
As soon as they pull out of hyperspace, they receive a transmission from an old friend named Imra. She mentions that she has a job on Kashyyyk , the home of the Wookiees , with a very small window.
Han tells Imra to gather everyone they know, and tells Chewbacca to gather some fellow freed Wookiees, so that they can head down to the planet and free their homeworld. After the TIE fighter crash into the palace, the power went out temporarily, freeing Wedge from his shackles. He sneaks around the palace, narrowly avoiding being caught by stormtroopers looking for him. Once he comes across a secret passage, he uses it to ambush Sloane's personal assistant, Adea Rite , wounding her and stealing her holoscreen, allowing him to send a message to the New Republic calling them to war.
Sloane soon finds his body, crumpled up on the ground, with the holoscreen open to a rebel frequency. Temmin starts to break down into tears, when the door opens and a cloaked figure sits down at the end of the table. When Norra pulls back the veil and reveals that she is still alive and that TIEs truly do have an ejector seat, Temmin launches himself towards her to embrace her in a huge hug.
On Coruscant, Jak walks through the most dangerous underworld levels on the planet. Using a special card, he is allowed entrance to meet the Thorn , where he asks for a weapon, having saved the life of one of Thorn's closest companions. He wants to use it to take out power in Coco-Town with the help of the Anklebiter Brigade , a group of very young kids fighting against the Empire.
Back on Akiva, the planet is consumed in turmoil. People burn effigies of the satrap and Darth Vader in the streets, chanting and raging at the Empire and the satrapy. Jas watches it all, proud of herself and her new friends for setting the spark to set Myrra ablaze. Meanwhile, Sinjir tells Norra to trust him, because even though he was an Imperial, it was his job to hunt down other Imperials, to find the weakness in other Imperials, and then punish them accordingly.
When Temmin returns from his shop with maps of the catacombs below Myrra, they plan on how to sneak into the palace using the catacombs.
However, their plan involves traveling past the old underground droid factory, which is supposedly haunted and nobody has returned from alive. They will use some thermal detonators from Temmin's shop to blow holes into the walls of the palace once they get there.
On Naboo , two kids from the Anklebiter Brigade are meeting potential parents, people who could adopt them. One of the kids feels entirely out of comfort with all of the rich nobles around, and decides to run away from it all, hoping to find a transport back to Coruscant where he can rejoin the hot war between the rebels and the Empire.
Finally beginning their trek into the catacombs, Jas pulls Temmin back and asks him about his crate. When he says it's a weapon, she tells him that's he's wrong, and opens it for him. What's inside are data cubes, and they agree to sift through the information on them and sell them to the right client as soon as this is over.
