    Well, there is Wordery - £14.

    But I remain conflicted due to far less confidence in the post-Jedi era of SW.

    Got my review copy yesterday and started reading. All I'll say so far is that Daniel Jose Older did something around page 55-60 that made me want to run around the house in absolute glee.

    Love that there are Sabacc cards behind the characters silhouette.

    So is Kaasha the love of Lando's life that was described as such in the book edition?

    Wordery are doing a buy two, get 15% off on second, cheaper book and have Last Shot for £14.

    Code is APRIL15, until end of 16 April.

    I combined it with a couple of others to bag Last Shot for £11.90!

    I haven’t read any Star Wars books in a while (mainly because I have so much other reading material to get through), but the more I read about this one, the more I want to pick it up.

    So far, this is my personal favorite NEU book. Older is a good choice for a Han book; he anchors it in real world language, sexuality, etc..

    So excited!!! Can't wait to read it. I haven't really read a Star Wars novel since Phasma in September 2017. That means I haven't read Star Wars in 7 months!!! The horror

    Wookieepedia added Condor Kyl and Sinjir Rath Velus (two of my favourite characters from Aftermath and the only reason I actually kept reading the books) to the list of appearances. What are they doing, tell me, TELL ME!

    For some reason I had completely forgotten the release date was today. Really looking forward to this one.

    Haha, I let out a little screech and did an air punch.

    Are they the sole happy couple in canon at this point?

    In a manner of speaking Zare Leonis and Merei Spanjaf from Servants of the Empire were also happy since they escaped together with Zare's family to the Outer Rim at the end of the book series.

    Wish I’d seen this earlier.

    I was literally coming in here to post that Blacksmiths have it for less than £14 for you, Ben!

    When other people have their copies of Last Shot, but you pre-ordered from amazon so you have to wait for the mail...

    Mine just came in. These look awesome: think Lando side is my favorite though. left it Han for now. Scared I’ll mess up the DJ haha.

    Wonder why they changed the Star Wars logo on the spine? They did it like...

    STAR WARS

    Instead of

    STAR
    WARS

    I think Tarkin might be the only other one that does the one line and I just figured that was bc of the spine size (280ish pages). Not that it matters. These DJs are on point.

    I do try to share these things, but if you're not paying attention ..... ;)

    Did you mean Blackwells or WH Smiths?

    The beginning pages of the book — probably the whole of Part I — are my favorites. Very old EU, very classic post-ROTJ. Felt like coming home: particularly the domestic Han/Leia scenes.

    My other favorite bits are some new topics that I’ve been waiting for SW to wrestle with for ages and DJO handled them well.
