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 …

Star Wars: Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil by Drew Karpyshyn

It was obvious where the series was going with the Rule of Two and all but it was still well done and threw up a few unexpected developments. This book is set another ten years after the first book, with Bane and Zannah still in the same master/apprentice relationship, though splits are beginning to show. …

Star Wars: Darth Bane: Rule of Two by Drew Karpyshyn

So this starts off immediately after the events of the first book, at least for the first third, then there is a ten year time jump. Bane has his apprentice and is starting his new philosophy of the ‘Rule of Two’ for the Sith going forward. He has planted enough seeds that the Jedi think …

Star Wars: Darth Bane: Path of Destruction by Drew Karpyshyn

So this is the first part of a trilogy of books set around one thousand years before the main Star Wars timeline. It follows the story of Dessel, born and raised a miner in a world where the workers are basically indentured slaves to a corporation. It is on the fringes of the Republic and …

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: Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Woodring Stover

To paraphrase George RR Martin: That is how a Star Wars novelisation ought to be written! This book hits all the main points from the movie but does them so much better. For context I had just finished the new season of the Clone Wars and it seemed logical to watch Episode III to show …

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 …

Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Jason Fry

Well that was better than expected, especially after The Force Awakens novelisation. This is more what I was hoping for. What was really great was that though all the major battle scenes were there they weren’t dwelled on in great detail, instead the author made more of the moments in between to allow the characters …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Alan Dean Foster

A bit disappointing really, nothing added to the story. There’s no point really going into details of the story here as you won’t be reading this book unless you’re a Star Wars fan so I’m sure you’ve seen it. I like reading the novelisations as long as they add something to the film. The prequel …
