Chuck Wendig Reveals the First Line from 'Aftermath: Life Debt'

By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars Day 2016 (May the Fourth Be With You) has brought us many cool announcements, from the next Star Wars Celebration, to the much anticipated release of Jabba Flow from The Force Awakens to the release of the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack on Vinyl!  One person who didn't want to be left out of the fun was Star Wars author Chuck Wendig, who's novel Star Wars: Aftermath reached #4 on the best sellers list last fall.  Wendig posted the first line of his next Star Wars novel, a sequel to Aftermath titled Life Debt, on his blog today in celebration of May the 4th.  It's very short but very intriguing.  Check it out below,

“Leia paces.”

Short and sweet.  And very intriguing.  We know that the "Legacy" characters will have a much larger role in Life Debt  than they did in Aftermath, where Han and Chewie only appeared briefly for an Interlude which set up this book.  We've known that they would factor into the story in a big way, so it's nice to know Leia will be around too. 

Star Wars: Aftermath--Life Debt hits shelves on June 12th.  Check out the synopsis below,
Set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the never-before-told story that began with Star Wars: Aftermath continues in this thrilling novel, the second book of Chuck Wendig’s New York Times bestselling trilogy.

It is a dark time for the Empire. . . .

The Emperor is dead, and the remnants of his former Empire are in retreat. As the New Republic fights to restore a lasting peace to the galaxy, some dare to imagine new beginnings and new destinies. For Han Solo, that means settling his last outstanding debt, by helping Chewbacca liberate the Wookiee’s homeworld of Kashyyyk.

Meanwhile, Norra Wexley and her band of Imperial hunters pursue Grand Admiral Rae Sloane and the Empire’s remaining leadership across the galaxy. Even as more and more officers are brought to justice, Sloane continues to elude the New Republic, and Norra fears Sloane may be searching for a means to save the crumbling Empire from oblivion. But the hunt for Sloane is cut short when Norra receives an urgent request from Princess Leia Organa. The attempt to liberate Kashyyyk has carried Han Solo, Chewbacca, and a band of smugglers into an ambush—resulting in Chewie’s capture and Han’s disappearance.

Breaking away from their official mission and racing toward the Millennium Falcon’s last known location, Norra and her crew prepare for any challenge that stands between them and their missing comrades. But they can’t anticipate the true depth of the danger that awaits them—or the ruthlessness of the enemy drawing them into his crosshairs.
