The Star Wars Stacks

In episode 16, we review the third novel in the new official canon, Heir to the Jedi, written by Kevin Hearne (Publication Date: March 3, 2015). 

Some news before we get into the book:

Next, we give our spoiler-free synopsis and general opinions on the book.

Once that is out of the way, we get into the spoiler section where we get down and dirty with the story. If you haven't finished the book, or haven't started it yet, listen to the first half of this episode then pause it when you hear the alert. Return to this episode of the Star Wars Stacks when you have finished the novel and are ready to hear the full discussion. 

In two weeks we'll have our usual general disucssion show. After that we'll be doing a slightly different episode where we give our review of season 1 of the new Star Wars: Rebels animated series that just finished up on Disney XD.
