Teen Romance, with a Star Wars backdrop

I rarely ever write reviews for audiobooks, or novels. I read over 200 books a year. I have literally read every single Star Wars novel published, even all the new canon for young adults, since most of them all are very good. A Crash of Fate however, although wonderly written, was very captivating...is simply a teen romance of 8 hrs and/or 347 pages set in a Star wars setting. Literally if a few 'Star Wars' terms were left out of the prose, it could simply be any new science fiction setting. Honestly this book could be Star wars fan fiction. It is simply a cliched story of 2 little kids(6 years old) separated from each other, finding each other again by kismethe 13 years later and falling in love. The end. Yeah you heard it right...6 years old...and then they are suddenly 19. If the author had their ages at age 10 or 11 at the time of separation, them hanging on to each other in memory would be FAR MORE PLAUSIBLE. There is little to no plot. What very little plot there is, is simply interwoven to make an actual story more 'Star Wars' with nefarious smugglers. Now HOWEVER, the audio version is fantastic. There is an entirely new cinematic musical addition here that I certainly don't ever remember hearing in any other Star Wars audio. There are several new musical landscapes/background-- for example, upbeat discoteque music in the club, or during the more romantic or sad scenes, a soft almost gut wrenching piano ballad. All I could keep wondering is where can I buy the soundtrack?? And Brittany Pressley does a FANTASTIC job in narration. I never once wanted to speed up the narration. I typically speed up Marc Thompson's narration to 1.33 because he READS.....SO.....SLOW, and it is the perfect cadence as well as with the sound effects.
Again, do not look to the story as anything earth shattering, or that even barely feels to fit in to a Star Wars Universe. Take away the Star Wars music, and the name drop of some planets, and it literally could be set in any sci fi setting with teen romance. You have been warned.

A Batuu love story written in the stars

A beautiful love story that will capture your heart and leave you wanting more! The book was an easy read and I loved every moment. I highly suggest reading this book before visiting Galaxy's Edge on your next Disney trip.

boring

I'm not sure what the point of this story was. Was this to introduce new characters? Was it geared towards young adults? But, it just didn't really go anywhere. I just felt like it was a big waste of time.

Good but minor issue with background noise

Some of the background noises and music was to loud for my taste making it harder to hear the narrator

Not a normal Star Wars Novel

I’ll admit that I was expecting something a lot more fleshed out with some additional lore but that’s not what this book is about. This book is a young adult novel through and through. The book is centered around the relationship between the main characters.

I say that to say, if you’re reading this book to get additional information on the lore this isn’t the book for you.

Good story.

Good young adult story. Kinda like a teen romance. Felt like this story was leading into another book.

Don't bother with this one.

Crappy techno music isn't necessary every time music is mentioned in a scene. Trying to cover up a boring story by going overboard on the soundtrack isn't working.

Don't waste your time...

This is by far the worst Star Wars book that I have ever listened to... I am patient, but after 8 hours I cannot go on. The story is sslllooooooowwww. There is the most annoying (what can only be described as) noise constantly looped in the background. The reader would be okay but clearly has no knowledge of the SW universe. She clearly didn't realize that a "spice trader" is a drug dealer and read a reference to one like it was someone at a sample booth in Costco. 8 hour of my life that would have been better spent cleaning septic tanks....

Meh

I’ve listened to a lot of Star Wars books and most of them are very good. This one definitely left me underwhelmed. Many times I felt the need to rewind it because I felt like I must’ve missed something, only to find that after I rewound it there just wasn’t much explanation. I liked the characters and hearing about Battuu but overall the story was hard to follow and at times seemed kinda pointless.

Makes Star Wars Galaxy's Edge come to life!

This is a wonderful story with a good pay-off for the time you invest in it. Having been to Galaxy's Edge before reading the book, I want to go back and visit the places A Crash of Fate described: Oga's cantina where R3X (former pilot of Star Tours) DJs, Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities, and Hondo Ohnaka's Shipping Company.
