A few readers have asked me to compile a list of the Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens books coming out on September 4th (aka Force Friday). I was checking out my options for Star Wars: Aftermath today and I was able to pick it up for $13.99, which is really good (also there is an audio book):
I think if there is one Journey to the Force Awakens book we’re going to want to read it is going to be this one followed closely by Shattered Empire ($13.59).
Lost Stars ($8.17) is really cheap and appears to be about a crashing Star Destroyer which makes sense considering how many we see in The Force Awakens teaser:
Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo Adventure is only $5.90 which will hopefully tell us a little about Han’s plight:
The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure is $5.90 and appears to have Jessika Pava as a character:
Moving Target: A Princess Leia Story is also $5.90 and takes place in between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi:
Droid Factory is $15.39 and probably won’t be as revealing as the other books but will give us an in-depth look at BB-8 (I hope):
There is also Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy:
And last but certainly not least Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To know: Journey to the Force Awakens!
I think having this collection of book is going to set the stage for wow the galaxy gets to where it is during The Force Awakens era but filling in how things shook out after Return of the Jedi. I think it would be unwise to expect all the answers, but I think these books are going to be a good read in the fervor of The Force Awakens.
