Our Synopsis

No Spoilers

Since her introduction in Kieron Gillen's Darth Vader series from Marvel in 2015, Doctor Aphra caught fire in the fandom. With a morally grey rogue archeologist accompanied by murderous droids, what's not to love? Her story is filled with twists and turns, betrayal and romance, with more skin-of-your-teeth escapes than you ever thought possible, and now you can experience her introduction in a whole new way. Sarah Kuhn's adaptation of Aphra's arc in the Darth Vader comics smartly tells the story from her perspective, somehow recapping the 2015 comics without ever feeling like you were retreading old ground. This is one of the more unique, fun, and diverse stories in the galaxy.

Publisher's Summary

Possible Spoilers

Doctor Aphra: An Audiobook Original. It will expand upon Doctor Chelli Aphra's introduction in Marvel Comics 2015 Star Wars: Darth Vader comic series.

Dr. Chelli Lona Aphra, rogue archaeologist, is in trouble again.

A pioneer in the field of criminal xenoarchaeology, Aphra recognizes no law, has no fear, and possesses no impulse control. To her, the true worth of the galactic relics she discovers isn't found in a museum but in an arsenal. This viewpoint has led to a lot of misunderstandings. After her latest plan goes horribly wrong, her roguish ways are on the verge of catching up to her, when suddenly Darth Vader, terror of the galaxy, swoops in with his lightsaber ignited and...saves her life?

Don’t get her wrong - it's not like she's ungrateful. Sure, her new boss is a lord of the Sith. And okay, she may have just become a pawn in a deadly game being played by him and HIS boss, who happens to be the Galactic Emperor. And yes, the life expectancy of anyone who disappoints Vader can be measured in seconds.

But she's back doing what she does best. She's got a ship to fly, a heist to pull, and two unorthodox but effective metal buddies: Triple-Zero, a protocol droid specializing in etiquette, customs, translation, and torture; and BT-1, an astromech loaded with enough firepower to take down a battlecruiser. Together, they might just find a way to get the job done and avoid the deadly performance review that waits at its conclusion.

Just kidding. She's doomed.
