Today, thanks to Rockstar Book Tours, we’re featuring The Legends of Luke Skywalker by Ken Liu. Most of you know that some of us are huge Star Wars fans, ahem, okay me. 🙂 And that every new book is like a glimpse into back stories and corners of our favorite sci-fi world.
With the release of The Last Jedi just around the corner, what better way to help ease the wait than to read a little more about one of our favorite Jedi, Master Luke. He defied his Father. He defied his (supposed) destiny. What else can we learn about him?
As you can tell, I’m very excited about this new story, and it’s release date is Halloween! What an awesome way to celebrate than by picking up this book and waiting for all the little ghosts, Pennywises and yes, stormtroopers to come to your door?
