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 …

Star Wars: Last Shot by Daniel Jose Older

A slightly disappointing read. Mostly set a couple of years after Return of the Jedi, Lando turns up at Han and Leia’s doorstop with some questions for Han after one of his droids tried to kill him. There’s a macguffin that has the potential to have far reaching consequences for the whole galaxy and it’s …

Star Wars: Thrawn Alliances by Timothy Zahn

Like many Star Wars novels, this wasn’t bad but it also kind of disappointed. I quite enjoyed the first Thrawn book so was looking forward to him teaming up with Darth Vader. The story is divided over two timelines, back in the Clone Wars when we have Anakin and Padme teaming up with Thrawn for …

Star Wars: Kenobi by John Jackson Miller

I had high hopes going into this novel. I’ve always liked Obi-Wan Kenobi and the idea of a novel about him set just after Revenge of the Sith sounded really interesting. Unfortunately it wasn’t. I was bored from the start to the finish. Okay there were some bits near the end that were alright but …
