In this pivotal prequel to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the heroes of the Resistance--Poe Dameron, General Leia Organa, Rey, and Finn--must fight back from the edge of oblivion. The Resistance is in ruins. In the wake of their harrowing escape from Crait, what was once an army has been reduced to a handful of wounded heroes. Finn, Poe, Rey, Rose, Chewbacca, Leia Organa--their names are famous among the oppressed worlds they fight to liberate. But names can only get you so far, and Leia's last desperate call for aid has gone unanswered.    From the jungles of Ryloth to the shipyards of Corellia, the shadow of the First Order looms large, and those with the bravery to face the darkness are scattered and isolated. If hope is to survive, the Resistance must journey throughout the galaxy, seeking out more leaders--including those who, in days gone by, helped a nascent rebellion topple an empire. Battles will be fought, alliances will be forged, and the Resistance will be reborn.… (més)

Although not a Star Wars fan, I bought this a few months ago when I saw author Roanhorse being abused on social media. I'm aware of her other works but they are series that are not yet complete so I thought this would be a good way to show support, read something a little different and introduce myself to Roanhorse. And as it is now Black History Month in the US, it also seemed like a fitting read, too.

Books like this are super tricky because there is only so far an author can go. Unless it's a direct tie-in type of book they usually can't do anything like kill off a character or create some huge major plot point. And so it is like that here, where you get a familiar cast (Poe, Finn, Rey, Leia, etc.) all trying to make it to the next movie.

And that's how it reads. We get several characters that are not particularly memorable and bear no greater impact on the overall arc of the film. As much as you may hope to have Poe, Finn, Rey, Leia, etc. (just look at the cover!), in the action, the book chops up the action and you see some characters get almost no airtime while getting new and random characters that will disappear and never be mentioned again anywhere in the Star Wars universe because they were only plot fodder.

I haven't read too many SW novels because of stuff like this and most of these books don't really work unless it's something like 'Shadows of the Empire' where it had the backing of then-SW producer Lucasfilm with the intention of making SOTE a full-multimedia experience. That whole experience was not something I cared about but that it was something Lucasfilm wanted to do in order to reignite interest probably made it much easier to create a better story.

Ultimately this is probably skippable unless you're a completist. That said, I was glad I could buy this to support the author and it was also relatively cheap as a mass market paperback. Library might be best if you're curious. ( )

A much-needed bridge between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. The Resistance starts to regroup and old friends from other Star Wars novels join the fight. ( )

It took me forever to get into this. I wanted to read it quicker and faster, but the first 60 some pages is just so blank that its.... eh. And problem is also characters. I've never been drawn to Norra or Snap, or new Wedge (where the old canon I loved Wedge), Poe is also a miss for me for the most part since TLJ basically just set him in reloop from TFA. (At least in RoS he changes.)

So I powerhoused the last 130 some pages to try and finish it before RoS. Spoiler - I didn't, I ended up like 20 pages shy and finished it this morning sadly.

This book falls prey to Disney syndrome. The only reason this book exists, is because of how bad TLJ was and how little it set up for RoS, and we all saw the trailers for RoS and we see a massive fleet at the end of it, so we know the Resistance has to go from 12 people to literally thousands basically overnight.

The plot to this is pretty straight forward. Team X goes to Bracca to get ships. Team Y goes to Corellia to rescue Casterfo. Team Z goes to underworld contact for the list. The stakes should seem high in universe, but sadly, because we know how RoS is going to play out, and we know how limited usage the new book characters get.... this whole book seems so superflous and pointless.

Overall this isn't a bad book, but its just a disappointing book, all the moreso because of how we know Disney's new canon is, and how the new state of Star Wars is. I'm left with little care for the characters, or the universe, or plots that involve said characters. Sadly this is why the Sequel Trilogy has been horrible for Star Wars. ( )

From the back cover: The Resistance is in ruins. In the wake of their harrowing escape from Crait, what was once an army has been reduced to a handful of wounded heroes. Finn, Poe, Rey, Rose, Chewbacca, Leia Organa - their names are famous among the oppressed worlds they fight to liberate. But names can only get you so far, and Leia's desperate call for aid has gone unanswered.

From the jungles of Ryloth to the shipyards of Corellia, the shadow of the First Order looms large, and those with the bravery to face the darkness are scattered and isolated. If hope is to survive, the Resistance must journey throughout the galaxy, seeking out more leaders - including those who, in days gone by, helped a nascent rebellion topple an empire. Battles will be fought, alliances will be forged, and the Resistance will be reborn.

This book covers the year between The Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker. It generally focuses on Poe and his quest to recruit more rebels, as well as his guilt for his actions that led to so many deaths in The Last Jedi.

I enjoyed this book, and it was good prep to see the movie, which came out about the time I read this.

A few quotes I liked:

"Hope is good" Leia said, "Hope is important, and sometimes it is all we have. But what does hope have to do with being rational?"

"He hurt, inside and out, but the pain was fading. Betrayal. That's all he could feel now. Not by Monti, or even Yama. It was violence that had lied to him. It had made him promises of power, but in the end, it had not saved him. It had damned him." ( )

Just a really fun Star Wars book! Poe's characterization was spot on, and the story of rebuilding was really compelling and interesting. I feel like the book FLEW by, with interesting things happening all the time, but not in an overwhelming sense. Just really enjoyed this quite a bit, had a really fun time with it and it left me wanting to read more! ( )
