The writing, too, is ...meh. I've read worse. It's got so much potential, but it disappoints me.
The book picks up on the tails of The Empire Strikes Back. That's good. Luke is in a state of shock. Vader has just chopped off Luke's hand and told the young Jedi that Vader is his father.
That part is done well.
We go back to cloud city. Luke wants is lightsaber.
C'mon. Been there, done that. Boring. I remember when the original Marvel from the 1970's did a few issues on Bespin. That was cool. Now, it's old hat.
Leia gets put into carbon freeze, just days after Han. Luke searches for his lightsaber in a large Trash Compactor-type room. Luke wants his X-Wing back.
Where's the creativity? GIVE US SOMETHING NEW! This feels like a re-tread.
This is not a book that will keep you up at night, flipping pages, making you want to read it again.
We all know that about a year's time goes by between the end of The Empire Strikes Back and the start of Return of the Jedi. This series is going to fill in that year and tell us what the Star Warriors were doing.
It's just that--the story to me feels redundant, and it feels false when Luke traces down an image from a Force Vision rather than going after his best friend, Han. Heck, in TESB, Luke left his all-important training to go save Leia and Han at Cloud City. Now, something else is more important?
I don't buy it.
Marvel needs to do better.
Picking up in the immediate aftermath of “The Empire Strikes Back,” Soule’s “Star Wars” finds our core cast of characters in various states of distress and/or personal crises, making for fertile storytelling soil that is compelling and – best of all – immediately distinct from its predecessors. Granted, a few story elements still fall into the “wait-and-see” side of things – Luke’s storyline is particular feels a bit at-odds with what’s been set up in the films – but on the whole, this is a new “Star Wars” series that feels both fresh and well-honed.
Welcome to the big boys club, Charles Soule.

Even in the EU/Legonds universe Shadow of the Empure was a while the Empire Steikes Back. This book is directly after and deal perfectly with the fall out. Luke coming to the realisation he has been used and lied to. His belief in the Force damaged, and his lightsaber lost. He must now find a new path to his destiny.
There are also trust issues from Leia, Chewie and the rebels against Lando. All thus and there is still a war on and the rebels are being soundly beaten.
I can't say enough good things about this book. Dealing with the fallout, and even linking to the High Republic series. This is a must have for any Star Wars fan.
Great Read for any Star Wars Fan.
