Very Disappointing

Knowing this is now Disney canon I hope it is not indicative of the future of Star Wars. This is a teen romance novel set in a newly Disney created world for their theme parks which I just returned from. The park I highly recommend but not this book. The romance parts were not only hard to listen to but frustratingly repetitive. If I was a teacher I would grade it very harshly. If you want an introduction to Galaxy's Edge read Black Spire.

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.

No guns, No First Order, No Droids

The story does take place on Batuu which is fun, however this is not a normal Star Wars story. For example, there are exactly 3 blaster shots in the whole book, 2 of the shots the blaster is set to stun. All the fighting is so watered down it feels like an episode of high school musical. The primary conflicts comes from someone saying something mean to someone else. The First Order is totally absent from the plot.

I recommend reading “black spire” instead.

Twilight Wars?

If you’re a Twilight fan and basically just want a poorly written teenage love story, then this is the book for you. Needless to say, this was a disappointing book. You can basically just read the first 5 or so chapters and the last 3 chapters and read all you need. It was fun to get to know some of the characters from Galaxy’s Edge, but otherwise, the story wasn’t up to par with Star Wars quality plot lines and action.

if you’re an “adult,” don’t be fooled by the YA label

not that reading level matters, but i picked this up thinking it was an “adult” companion book to galaxy’s edge. found it was actually YA, but was presently surprised. still edgy and is a perfect little star wars vignettes that is part of what made the 1rst season of the mandalorian so special. it features characters of color, too, so it’s rad that youngfolk of color are seeing themselves represented in the star wars universe!

Super mushy romance that happens to be set in SW

Now I'm a sucker for a good romance story, but this one was rather juvenile. Clearly not meant for my age demographic. Beyond the romance though, the story was solid. Fun adventure on Batuu. Sometimes I got a little lost as to what was going on, but I never got bored listening to the story.

The performance is what really helps this book out. Beyond the narrator being great at what she does, they actual used *new* music not from the original saga. As much as I love the soundtrack of Episodes 1-6 of Star Wars, hearing the same music in every Star Wars novel was starting to get stale.

Overall, an okay story with a good performance.

romance in space

it is a simple love story, filled with every cliche, and enough star wars to fill the gaps. normally I wouldn't recommend this kind of book, but the two lovers captured my 30 year old heart.

Great work and I hope to listen to more

I would’ve liked to know more about the package they were transporting (fingers crossed kyber crystal). But other than that I thoroughly enjoyed this and the performance was amazing.

Good story.

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

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.
