Description

Walk the ancient streets, meet the colorful characters, and uncover the secret history of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the upcoming expansion to the Disney Parks experience!

After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower - and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.

A planet of lush forests, precarious mountains, and towering, petrified trees, Batuu is on the furthest possible frontier of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space. The rogues, smugglers, and adventurers who eke out a living on the largest settlement on the planet, Black Spire Outpost, are here to avoid prying eyes and unnecessary complications. Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.

To survive, Vi will have to seek out the good-hearted heroes hiding in a world that redefines scum and villainy. With the help of a traitorous trooper and her acerbic droid, she begins to gather a colorful band of outcasts and misfits, and embarks on a mission to spark the fire of resistance on Batuu - before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.

It’s okay


I’m a fan of all things Star Wars, but I have to say this one just didn’t hold my attention. I read Phasma and loved Vi and Cardinal, but didn’t find the later to be very well used here. There were a slew of new characters, none of which really resonated with me.

There were definitely some exciting parts, and I enjoyed the feeling of being in a post-Last Jedi galaxy, however it was overall just an okay experience, not a great one.

While you wait for December's movie!

Made as a direct sequel to the "Phasma" novel, we find ourselves in post-TLJ territory, when spy Vi Moradi receives a mission from General Leia to establish a Resistance outpost in Batuu, the same planet used for the Disney parks (Galaxy's Edge).

Not entirely recovered from the ordeal she suffered at the hands of the First Order, she must accept the mission with few resources and the company of a talkative labor droid... until she finds that her torturer himself will be his only companion, Captain Cardinal, now under his real name, Archex.

Crash landing in Batuu (Another crash of fate?), she finds deprived of all her goods and must integrate in the Black Spire Outpost community, navigate the local powers and try to recover the goods... once everything starts going well, the First Order arrives in town and they must rise up to the challenge of defeating them without messing up the locals lives.

Unlike "A Crash of Fate", you get a better sense of what's happening in the galaxy during the post-TLJ events prior to The Rise of Skywalker, with interaction from some keyplayers and references to main characters.

Plus Delilah S. Dawson shines with her writing, the development of characters and plots.

I experienced the audiobook, narrated masterfully by January Lavoy with fantastic use of voice effects, sound effects and music.

This is a very interesting book to read while we wait until December. Recommended!

GREAT STORY!

This was a great in between story from ep.8 The Last Jedi and ep.9 The Rise of Skywalker. Lots of little bits of new info and inclusion of several bits from the previous movies.

Must listen if you are going to star wars land.

I have heard that the lines to get into black spire were very long on opening day. If you are planning on going to the spire, you must listen to this book. It can serve as your vertual guide.

At first I was skeptical, now Im in aww

i wasn't so sure about this book when i had put in for a pre-order. i was guessing it was going to be dry and all fluff for the park. The first few chapters felt that way at first. the rest had me in aww wauting for what was to come next. Now i can't wait to find out what happens next, will there be another book? what will i learn about when i visit the park. i am determined to find out. i hope to see the patk soon. feeling like i was already there.

So much more than a Theme Park Tie in!!!

This book is a fantastic follow up to the Phasma novel and an exciting continuation of the story of Vi Moradi and Cardinal. I have visited Galaxy's Edge at Disney and while the novel does a fantastic job of describing the area and getting the reader excited about visiting, it does so much more. The characters and story are engaging, and fans of Cardinal will cheer as they see his development from First Order devotee to Resistance sympathizer!

January Lavoy does an excellent job of narrating, and the sound design keeps the story feeling dynamic and alive with sound effects and voice changers to indicate storm troopers, droids or alien species.

Another wonderful Star Wars story.

I love these books. I hope that we keep getting more. These story's take me away and I can forget about life for awhile.
Thank you.

a bit of advertising but excellent

It seemed a bit of an advertisement at first but the story and characters were excellent.

By far the WORST Star Wars book I've tried to read

I'm extremely disappointed by this book. I'm a huge Star Wars fan of 30 years, and a big fan of the Galaxy's Edge theme park expansion, so I was quite excited and interested to have some established lore. However, this turned out to be boring, sloppy, and laughably pompous. The first few chapters read like this book is a direct sequel to another; it maybe but it is not listed as such. The main character Vi Moradi is barely described, so thank goodness for the cover and the character actor at Disney Parks. There's a character named Archex who was a former rival to Captain Phasma who went by the name Cardinal, and he's barely delved into before being thrust into a partnership with Vi; which is confusing as well.

I trudged on as each paper-thin character was introduced, until I came to a chance meeting between Savi and Vi about two hours into the book that made me roll my eyes into the back of my skull. Vi attempts to recruit Savi to help her in Resistance business, and he is notably pleased. Savi tells Vi he used to help the Rebels long ago and asks her if Princess Leia is still leading them. Vi notably "bristles" and corrects Savi saying "actually it's General Leia now". This is an utterly ridiculous reaction on behalf of the Vi character, and it's clearly an unnecessary social justice statement the author is making that makes the character look pompous. Leia WAS a princess the last time Savi saw her, NOT a general. Nothing Savi did indicated any misogyny or disrespect. This event is so annoying it has completely taken me out of the story and I have no interested in following Vi as written by this author. And just a note to the author: princesses are royalty, and generals are commanded by royalty; way to unnecessarily be regressive.

At least the narrator does a good job.

it was fine...

it was worth it for 1 credit but I don't think it would have been fulfilling for the sticker price. there certainly wasn't anything bad about it, although it definitely drags in the first third setting things up. inordinate amount of detail spent on unnecessary scene setting.

This is one of my favorite new cannon SW books

First off: If you have not read Phasma, you might want to before you read this book. It deals with two of the characters and their history together. It's not truly necessary, but it might help you know the main characters better and their motivations.
Secondly: This grabbed me right at the start. A few of the other Star Wars new cannon books started off too slow and it was hard to pay attention until a few chapters in. I love the main characters of this book. Vi and Archex are fantastic.
Thirdly: The world building of Batuu is amongst the best. I felt I could see it all. For a book that's a tie in to a theme park, I didn't expect it to be this good.
In Conclusion: I don't expect you'll dislike this book if you've liked other new cannon Star Wars books. This is right under the new Thrawn trilogy for me.
