Princess Leia Uses The Force in 'Star Wars: Aftermath Life Debt' Excerpt

Star Wars Books recently shared a new excerpt from one of their new novels, Star Wars: Aftermath Life Debt by Chuck Wendig, on their Facebook page.

The excerpt follows Princess Leia as she makes an intriguing discovery about the Force, as she embarks on a journey to try to become a Jedi after the events of Return of the Jedi. This provides an answer to the question that fans have been asking: How come Leia didn't end up being a Jedi in Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

The excerpt gives us a glimpse into Leia's fraught state of mind at the time, made worse by the fact that she's pregnant with the child we know will grow up to be Kylo Ren.
