#132 - Shadows of the Empire Novel Review
We return to the vast well of Legends material with a discussion of the novel from the seminal multimedia project, Shadows of the Empire. Starting with a quick rundown of our personal history with SotE and history of the project, we then dive into the book itself. We discuss the reciprocal characters of Dash Rendar and Prince Xizor, the antagonistic relationship between Vader and Xizor, as well as how incredibly important this book is in Star Wars history. We overcome childhood nostalgia and some cringey moments in the story to give a level-headed look at Steven Perry’s post-Empire pre-Jedi story.
