Doctor Aphra is an Audible Original (I believe), and the first audiobook adventure for a Star Wars character that I am mildly obsessed with. It is basically her origin story all over again, so fans from the comics will find a lot of the details and storyline to be familiar.
Dr. Chelli Lona Aphra calls herself an archaeologist, but that isn’t an accurate depiction of who she is, or what she does. She may be one of the best at digging up information about rare artifacts, but keeping those artifacts safe is a completely different story.
You see, Doctor Aphra has a tendency of getting these grand schemes in her head, and more often than not, that results her getting in completely over her head in the process. Take the situation where she ended up working for Vader. An event that would naturally for an early end to her life.
One of the highlights from this audiobook telling of Doctor Aphra‘s story is that it is fully narrated. Emily Woo Zeller, Jonathan Davis, Sean Patrick Hopkins, Sean Kenin, Nicole Lewis, Carol Monda, Euan Morton, Catherine Taber, Marc Thompson all play a role in this adventure, and it really does bring the story to life. At least, it did for me.
“Oh, right. There are no auxiliary systems, and I don’t have a crew. Time to get creative.”
