    I skipped a bunch of the Return of the Jedi books as they came out as I was feeling a bit overloaded but they're definitely fun one-shots to check out to add some additional color around events and the lead-up to it. Focus on some of what was going on with Endor ahead of the film is definitely fun, especially as it leans into more Andor-like material with how the Empire has taken over businesses and essentially conscripted its employees. It's a solid book with some great character work from Jody Houser as always. Jethro Morales gives us some of the beauty of Endor itself but also makes clear the oppressive and confining nature of the Empire and its facilities as well. Definitely solidly done and some nice callbacks that work really well for me. Read Full Review

    The book makes for an entertaining read, even if its not imperative to the grand scheme of the original trilogy, as it nominally showcases the treachery of the Empire and the impact the organization had on even the most innocuous residents of the galaxy. Read Full Review
