My Top Star Wars Moments 11

For me, 2016 was the year of the bad-ass Vader. He throws down against Ahsoka in ‘Twilight of the Apprentice’, the season finale of ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ Season 2, lost half his mask and walked away from the destruction of the Sith Temple on Malachor.

My Top Star Wars Moments 10

As my introduction to Giancarlo Esposito as an actor, this moment was mind-blowing. Having not watched ‘Breaking Bad’, the show he was best known for at the time, I had no idea how amazing an actor he is.

The High Republic: Into the Dark by Claudia Gray Book Review

After what felt like an eternity, I have finally finished Claudia Gray’s inaugural entry into ‘The High Republic’ series.

With the Rebel Fleet still in tatters, Leia and Kes share a moment of quiet to swap stories about their respective partners.

Before the Storm by Michael P. Kube McDowell Audiobook Review

When I was younger I bought this book, and as much as I tried, I just couldn’t get into it. I don’t think I ever made it past the first chapter.

Planet of Twilight by Barbara Hambly Audiobook Review

I can safely say I am happy to be done with this ‘Callista Trilogy’. ‘Planet of Twilight’ finishes off this series, that Hambly started with ‘Children of the Jedi’ and followed by Kevin J.

Darksaber by Kevin J. Anderson Audiobook Review

Boy, oh boy. Darksaber sees the return of Kevin J. Anderson, the author of the ‘Jedi Academy Trilogy’ but the book falls short of the quality that I had expected after those great books.

I am not going to lie, as I listened to this, after reading it back in the late 90’s and barely remembering any of it, I had a few “What the #*$%?” moments, where I would have to take a moment to process what it was I had just listened to.
