Biweekly Book Review: Resistance Reborn

I was given this book by my brother for Christmas. I read it for the first time in August. I literally could not bring myself to read a buildup to the Rise of Skywalker knowing how much that movie broke my heart. What made it worse was knowing that this book was supposed to beContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Resistance Reborn”

Biweekly Book Review: Phasma

Y’all. Today we’re going dark. We’re diving into the heart of the First Order, into everything that makes it tick, but also into into its seedy underbelly. Overall I found this book deeply unsettling. This may have a lot to do with the fact that the author describes the more horrific parts of the storyContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Phasma”

Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendency: Chaos Rising

If you remember back to my original Thrawn Trilogy reviews, at the end of the day my conclusion was that they were OK. Not my favourites, but they didn’t make me want to pound my head against the wall, and frankly that’s a win in my book. As I wrapped my review up, I alsoContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Thrawn Ascendency: Chaos Rising”

Biweekly Book Review: Force Collector

We’re in the homestretch now. Only 3 books left in the main YA/adult timeline (not counting the two Black Spire books which we’ll also cover). Though this project isn’t quite over yet, the biggest chunk is behind me now, and I’m getting a little misty-eyed and nostalgic. Nostalgic for the history of the GFFA, even.Continue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Force Collector”

Biweekly Book Review: Poe Dameron: Free Fall

Today’s book is a milestone for a couple of reasons. It’s the first in this read through to star a Sequel Trilogy character (no Snap Wexley doesn’t count). It’s also the first of the canon books to be published post-TROS (and likely owes it’s existence to that movie, but I’ll get to that later). Teeeeeechnically,Continue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Poe Dameron: Free Fall”

Biweekly Book Review: Bloodline

It’s a bit bittersweet today. On the one hand, I get to dive into one of my absolute favourite canon Star Wars novels. But on the other hand, this is the last Claudia Gray book until the High Republic comes out in the new year. Of all the Star Wars books I’m covering here, thisContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Bloodline”

Biweekly Book Review: Last Shot

At last. At long last. No more galactic scale space fight for a while. After the two Alphabet Squadron books and the three Aftermath ones, it’s nice to have the universe give way to something smaller and more intimate. I was really looking forward to revisiting this book. I liked it well enough when IContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Last Shot”

Biweekly Book Review: Aftermath: Empire’s End

War is coming. It’s time for the Battle of Jakku and the fall of the Empire. Today we’re going to be wrapping up the Aftermath series. From here on out, we will be firmly in the Sequel Trilogy timeline, and I promise I won’t let my Episode IX feelings out too much (because I’ve beenContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Aftermath: Empire’s End”

Biweekly Book Review: Aftermath: Life Debt

Welcome, welcome, everyone to the darker (or, longer at any rate) middle chapter of the Aftermath series. Of all the books in the series, this is the one I remember the best, both in the interludes and in the main plot points. Can’t really say why that is but I bet it’s because it soContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Aftermath: Life Debt”

Biweekly Book Review: Aftermath

Well, kids. We’re here. We’ve transitioned out of the late Original Trilogy timeline and have moved into the early Sequel Trilogy timeline. I realize the next three books take place almost concurrently with the Alphabet Squadron trilogy, so why is it that I mark this as the transition period? While the Alphabet books, in myContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Aftermath”
