Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising Review

I'm going to come right out and admit that this is a difficult review to write. Not because I didn't love what I read, but because I was so hyped up for this going into it that it's hard to separate that hype from how I objectively feel about this story. All that said, I … Continue reading Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising Review

Is There Room For Legends?

"The galaxy may need a legend."Rey, The Last Jedi When Disney acquired Lucasfilm back in 2012 and we found out we were getting brand-new films and stories in our Galaxy far, far away, the main question on my mind (and I'm sure many other fans' minds) was: what happens to everything already out there? Would … Continue reading Is There Room For Legends?

Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark Review

It's expected for major Star Wars productions to get a novel adaptation. In fact, if a movie premiered without a novel coming soon thereafter I'm sure fans would make their displeasure known. So it seems fitting for Star Wars longest running television series to get the same treatment. Enter: Stories of Light and Dark. This … Continue reading Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark Review

Poe Dameron: Free Fall Review

One of the recurring complaints I heard coming out of The Rise of Skywalker was that Poe's backstory had been changed from the New Republic turned Resistance hero pilot to the backworld spice runner turned Resistance hero pilot. So naturally, when I heard that Poe would feature in his own novel, I was very interested … Continue reading Poe Dameron: Free Fall Review

Welcome to the Golden Age of Star Wars

Everything has its “Golden Age,” right? That period of time when everything just seems to fall into place and you’re left with something at the best version of itself. I’ve been a baseball fan for a large part of my life, and I hear and read stories about the sport’s Golden Age – the 1920s … Continue reading Welcome to the Golden Age of Star Wars

Canon Catch-Up: Alphabet Squadron

This week saw the release of Shadow Fall, so what better time to revisit its predecessor than right now? Written by Alexander Freed and published on June 11, 2019, Alphabet Squadron tells the story of how a group of people with nowhere else to go come together to form a brand-new squadron featuring a mix … Continue reading Canon Catch-Up: Alphabet Squadron

Review: Galaxy’s Edge: Traveler’s Guide to Batuu

This is one of the most exciting reviews I've ever gotten to write, because it's the first time I have gotten to read a book before its official release date! It's also one of the strangest because it's a traveler's guide to a place I cannot currently visit no matter how much I may want … Continue reading Review: Galaxy’s Edge: Traveler’s Guide to Batuu

Canon Catch-up: Thrawn: Alliances

I've had this catch-up sitting on the docket way too long, and it's finally time to get it out there. I've actually had to read a few synopses (I definitely had to Google the plural of that word) to refresh my memory on all the things that happened in this novel. But, without any further … Continue reading Canon Catch-up: Thrawn: Alliances

Canon Catch-up: Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire

I think I should start this one off by saying I was prepared to not enjoy this novel so much. While I ultimately enjoyed Phasma, I wasn't really clamoring for a sequel. On top of that, I knew going in that this was part of the marketing material for Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World … Continue reading Canon Catch-up: Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire

Canon Catch-up: Phasma

It was inevitable that Captain Phasma would get some form of story set outside the movies in which she appeared. The marketing around her leading up to The Force Awakens and the fact that she was brought back for The Last Jedi practically promised we'd be getting more stories with her as a main character. … Continue reading Canon Catch-up: Phasma
