Star Wars was too good of a story to be constrained to just a
few movies. No, the kids of the late 80s/early 90s craved more of
all of it. That's where the
Legends novels came in: filling children's heads with name-droppy
corny Star Wars stories.
Heir to the Empire is one of the most well-regarded of these novels and we regard it, um, well enough. It could be a lot worse. But it could also be good, which it really isn't. But they nerfed the Force so that's fun.
Famous internet troll Curtis Cook joined us to disrepect the Star Wars world, having seen only (get this) A New Hope, Phantom Menace, and the Christmas special. What a weird world.
