It is a planet where one of the greatest clashes between good and evil would took place, creating galactic history in its destructive wake. Now, it's a shrine to the dead, and the technologically shattered- the resting place for the original Empire and its defeat at the infamous Battle of Jakku- an ignoble graveyard for its once mighty warships, whose rusted, twisted shells and wrecked, ghostly interiors are only of benefit to those members of the local populace keen to plunder it for scrap and potential profit, as a certain young and lonely female will do at the start of THE FORCE AWAKENS.
Find out more about how this epic battle on ground and in space began and ended via the final exciting part of Chuck Wending's Aftermath trilogy: Empire's End, the lead-in to the modern sequel movie series, out now in UK hardback from CENTURY PUBLISHING.
