Star Wars: Victory’s Price by Alexander Freed

Great end to the series. I won’t go into too much details here for fear of spoilers but we’ve come to the endgame and events are setting up for the Battle of Jakku and end of the Empire. We know how it plays out, kind of, and most of our protagonists know it too. The …

Star Wars: Shadow Fall by Alexander Freed

Dragged a bit in places but definitely continued with the premise of the first book (in a good way). Set not too longer after the events of the first book, Alphabet Squadron are now in proper fighting shape and working as a team. The New Republic is engaged with Imperial forces over the planet of …

Star Wars: Lost Stars by Claudia Gray

Forrest Gump meets Romeo and Juliet in Star Wars, shouldn’t work but it does. Set around the events of the original trilogy, this is the story of Ciena and Thane who grow up together and join the Imperial Academy until the events they see happening around them cause them to go down very different paths. …

Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed

Probably the closest to a grimdark Star Wars book I’ve read. Set shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi, the Empire is in collapse, fragmenting, but orders have been put in place for ‘Operation Cinder’ which tells Imperial forces to start destroying planets. Some dedicated units are doing this, and it’s one of …

Star Wars: Dooku: Jedi Lost by Cavan Scott

Would have enjoyed it a lot more if it had been novelized. So this story is framed as if told by Ventress’s POV during, or just before, the Clone Wars. She is tasked with finding Dooku’s sister who has been kidnapped and in the course of it, she finds journal entries which detail his life …

Star Wars: Master and Apprentice by Claudia Gray

Interesting story exploring the relationship between the two of them. Set a few years before the events of Episode I, it’s primarily focused on the relationship between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan is chaffing under the tutelage of Qui-Gon and he is starting to doubt whether he is the correct master for his padawan. From this …

Star Wars: Battlefront: Twilight Company by Alexander Freed

Definitely one of the more interesting tones of a Star Wars book that I’ve read so far. This is the story of Namir, a sergeant in the Rebellion’s Twilight Company. We follow him and the company as the rebellion are getting pushed back after the events of A New Hope. It starts shortly before Empire …

Ahsoka by E.K. Johnston

Set a year after the events of the Clone Wars and Order 66, Ahsoka is making a living as an engineer and trying to keep a low profile. As the new Imperial power starts making its presence felt through the galaxy, places to hide are starting to run out and she must make a choice …

Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View by Miscellaneous Authors

So this is a collection of short stories that basically tell the story of A New Hope from lots of different POV’s apart from the main cast (though there is one exception). It is an interesting premise and was released as part of the fortieth anniversary of the release of the film. I won’t go …

Star Wars: Resistance Reborn by Rebecca Roanhorse

Starting off pretty much where The Last Jedi left us, this story tells how Leia and the remnants of the Resistance started to get back on to their feet. After their crushing defeat at the hands of the First Order the Resistance are almost done for. They have a handful of people on the Falcon …
