Into the Void is no comic.
The depth of character and setting development here is extra-ordinary and this is a brilliantly craft tale that doesn’t fit the typical Star Wars novel mold. Yes there are concurrent sets of plots as always, but we get the present and then a past flashback that helps to inform what is going on in the present. It’s a good fit.
What isn’t just a good fit is how this sunovabeeeatch ends. AFter engaging us page after page after page, the ending of this book leaves a lot to be desired. The conclusion is no conclusion and is just a – ok he’s dead move along ending.
This is a story about a brother and a sister, one embracing the force one that rejects it – it’s good fun until the final chapter, which leaves a bitter aftertaste.
