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

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

Canon Catch-Up: ‘The Rise of Kylo Ren’

The Rise of Kylo Ren was a comic that I was very much looking forward to reading. I am not usually much of a comic book reader, however, I find the character of Ben Solo/Kylo Ren to be the most interesting and dynamic character in the Sequel Trilogy. Since The Force Awakens, I have always … Continue reading Canon Catch-Up: ‘The Rise of Kylo Ren’

Canon Catch-up: ‘Force Collector’

I have to say, Force Collector really caught me by surprise. This was not on my list of Star Wars novels to read. In fact, my wife bought the Kindle edition for me for exactly one dollar, so I decided to give it a look. After quickly reading two chapters, Kevin Shinick's YA (Young Adult) … Continue reading Canon Catch-up: ‘Force Collector’

Canon Catch-Up: The Perfect Weapon

This week's Canon Catch-Up is going to be a quick one, because this week we're focusing on a short story. This is one I've skipped for a number of years, and honestly just finished my first read through. Today, we're looking at "The Perfect Weapon" by Delilah S. Dawson. What It's About "The Perfect Weapon" … Continue reading Canon Catch-Up: The Perfect Weapon

Canon Catch-up: Lost Stars

If I have one single favorite Star Wars novel, it might just be Lost Stars. And the funny thing is that I skipped over it a couple times when it first came out. Something about it didn't catch me from the synopsis, so I read some other things first before finally caving in and picking … Continue reading Canon Catch-up: Lost Stars
