The Aftermath Trilogy


The Aftermath Trilogy by Chuck Wendig
The first new canon stories set after Return of the Jedi! In the months after the destruction of the second Death Star, the Empire is not yet dead. But when a group of high-level Imperials convene for a secret meeting on the planet Akiva, they soon find themselves on the defensive against an impromptu collection of rag-tag rebels, who will later go on to even greater adventures! Meanwhile, Imperial Admiral Rae Sloane, an outsider to the circles of galactic power, finds herself tasked with holding together the faltering Empire.

The first book got a kind of "love it or hate it" reaction from readers. Written in an unconventional style. Everything is happening in third-person present tense. Many short, incomplete sentences.
