Retro Reviews: ‘Dark Disciple’ by Christie Golden

Dark Disciple by Christie Golden is the first novel in the canon to utilize unproduced scripts from The Clone Wars television series, originally written by Dave Filoni, Matt Michnovetz, and Katie Lucas. It was released in July of 2015.

The first thing I have to say is that Christie Golden did exactly what any novelizer should do. She added information and beats to the story to make it flow better, but kept true to the facts and spirit of the original story. She made something made for kids television translate into a novel for adults. That would be a daunting enough challenge, even if it wasn’t a Star Wars property, and yet Christie Golden met that challenge head on and did a great job.

Shadow Fall by Alexander Freed is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

Alphabet Squadron’s hunt for the deadliest TIE fighters in the galaxy continues in this Star Wars adventure!

News of the New Republic’s victory still reverberates through the galaxy. In its wake, the capital ships of the newly legitimized galactic government journey to the farthest stars, seeking out and crushing the remnants of imperial tyranny. But some old ghosts are harder to banish than others. And none are more dangerous than Shadow Wing.

Yrica Quell’s ragtag Alphabet Squadron still leads the search for Shadow Wing, but they’re no closer to their goal—and the pressure to find their quarry before it’s too late has begun to shake them apart. Determined to finish the fight once and for all, Quell works with New Republic Intelligence’s contentious Caern Adan and the legendary General Hera Syndulla to prepare the riskiest gambit of her starfighting career—a trap for Shadow Wing that could finish the chase once and for all.

But in the darkness, their enemy has evolved. Soran Keize, last of the Imperial aces, has stepped into the power vacuum at the head of Shadow Wing, reinvigorating the faltering unit in their hour of need. Once adrift in the aftershocks of the war, Keize has found meaning again, leading the lost soldiers of his unit through to safety. The only thing standing in his way? The most mismatched squadron in the New Republic Navy, led by his former mentee: the traitor Yrica Quell.

Retro Reviews: ‘Lords of the Sith’ by Paul S. Kemp

Lords of the Sith, by Paul S. Kemp, is the fourth adult novel released in the Star Wars canon in April of 2015.

To start with, this book has an extra special place in my heart, as it was the first Star Wars canon novel I read in December of 2015 (right when The Force Awakens came out) and I’ve been reading Star Wars books ever since.

Paul S. Kemp did a great job on this novel. His writing is exciting and scary and nerve wracking. I knew throughout the story that Vader and the Emperor were going to survive and be fine, but I found myself cheering for the Rebels and wishing and hoping that they would be successful. There were times where I bought into the excitement and thought that perhaps the Lords of the Sith would be taken down for good. Any author wants their audience to become immersed in the story, and Kemp absolutely nailed that here. Continue Reading Retro Reviews: ‘Lords of the Sith’ by Paul S. Kemp…
