Star Wars: Last Shot (2018) – Daniel Jose Older

I’ve read a slew of Star Wars books, though not so many since the blog started as I used to. They are fun, entertaining, enjoyable, and now that they are considered canon, usually that much more detail-oriented in tying in with the rest of the universe. Last Shot, a Han and Lando novel is all…

A Wind in the Door (1973) – Madeline L’Engle
