Catalyst by James Luceno is an adult canon book released in November of 2016. It is one of the tie-in books to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it follows the characters of Galen and Lyra Erso, Orson Krennic, and Has Obitt.

I remember in 2016 when I was just getting into Star Wars books that my parents allowed me to go the day of release to the local bookstore to snatch up my copy of Catalyst. I was incredibly excited for Rogue One, and this book was really hyped online.

Book Review: ‘The Rules of Enchantment’ by Wendy Tardieu

So there’s a first time for everything, right? Well The Rules of Enchantment is the first time I’ve read an “erotic fantasy adventure” novel. I’ve read lots of fantasy books, and some of those have gotten pretty steamy, but this of course takes it just a bit further. However, maybe not as far as you might think. If you’re a fan of fantasy stories and you like romance, this might be right up your alley.

The story takes place in a world where people gifted in magic can go to academies to learn more about spells and such. There’s an Order of Shadows, an Order of Light and an Order of Sight. Each school has a different focus on the magical arts. Beyond the magic schools, the world lives in the shadow of an event that happened long ago. A sorcerer named Malantheus and his followers crafted a powerful gauntlet that could rule the dead. They rebelled against the kingdoms of the world as they wanted to cast off the restrictions placed on magic. Malantheus was stopped, the gauntlet locked away, and his followers were doomed as spirits to haunt an enchanted forest. All of that creates the backdrop for the world.

Retro Reviews: ‘Ahsoka’ by E. K. Johnston

Ahsoka by E. K. Johnston, is a young adult novel in the canon that was released in October of 2016. 

This book has an interesting place in my heart, because I had already started reading Star Wars books in 2016, but this was the first book that I bought on release day and read in a 24 hour period of time. 

After reading Queen’s Shadow and Queen’s Peril, I was disappointed with E. K. Johnston’s writing as a whole. When I realized I’d have to reread Ahsoka, I was afraid I wouldn’t like it now as much as I did back in 2016. 

I was wrong.

Retro Reviews: ‘Aftermath: Life Debt’ by Chuck Wendig

Aftermath: Life Debt is the second novel in the Aftermath trilogy written by Chuck Wendig and released in July of 2016. 

When I first read Life Debt, I liked it a whole lot more than the first Aftermath book. I think that this has the effect of being more popular because it includes major characters like Han and Leia, but it also kind of explains what’s happening to the greater galaxy at large. While those are things the first book was lacking, I still had several problems with this book, many of which were present in the first book.
