  • StarWars.com dished out some info on the upcoming Rogue One novels. First up, Rebel Rising by Beth Revis (416 page hardcover, May 2, 2017).

When Jyn Erso was five years old, her mother was murdered and her father taken from her to serve the Empire. But despite the loss of her parents she is not completely alone—Saw Gerrera, a man willing to go to any extremes necessary in order to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own, and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel herself.

 Jyn dedicates herself to the cause—and the man. But fighting alongside Saw and his people brings with it danger and the question of just how far Jyn is willing to go as one of Saw’s soldiers. When she faces an unthinkable betrayal that shatters her world, Jyn will have to pull the pieces of herself back together and figure out what she truly believes in…and who she can really trust.

New Release: ‘A Conversation in Blood’ by Paul S. Kemp

A Conversation in Blood by Paul S. Kemp is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. This is the third book in the Tales of Egil and Nix series, but it’s also a good jumping in point for new readers. Click here to read our full review.

Nix is a nimble thief with just enough knowledge of magic to get into serious trouble. Egil is the only priest of a discredited god. Together, they seek riches and renown, but somehow it is always misadventure and mayhem that find them—even in the dive bar they call home. And their luck has yet to change.

All Nix wants to do is cheer Egil up after a bout of heartbreak. And, of course, strike it so rich that they need never worry about their combined bar bill. But when the light-fingered scoundrel plunders a tomb and snatches mysterious golden plates covered in runes, the treasure brings terrifying trouble. Pursued by an abomination full of ravenous hunger and unquenchable wrath, Egil and Nix find all they hold dear—including their beloved tavern—in dire peril. To say nothing of the world itself.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Lots of Rogue One discussion episodes, some better than others.

Assembly of Geeks: Rogue One Reviews starts with some discussion on Gotham City Sirens and a Deadshot movie, then they move into their reviews of Rogue One with guest Dan Zehr (Coffee With Kenobi). While there’s no love for Bor Gullet or Saw, they do discuss the things they liked as well as the things they didn’t like, what they wanted, the CGI, possible plot holes and ranking it.

Bantha Fodder: Episode 15 is a Christmas special as they do their own version of “Twas A Night Before Christmas” but Rogue One themed. Worth a listen.

Bombad Radio: Episode 264 features James, Jeremiah, Jason and author Adam Bray as they talk Rogue One including expectations, the things they liked, disliked and listener feedback. Good episode. Note there’s more listener reviews at the end of the episode so when the main discussion ends and you hear someone else speaking, that’s what’s going on. It threw me off guard at first as I though maybe a different podcast had started playing, but it’s just a listener review. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Movie Review: ‘Fantastic Beasts’

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an interesting departure for the Harry Potter franchise as it dives into a story without its most famous character. Can a Harry Potter movie without Harry Potter work? Yes. In fact, Fantastic Beasts is a surprisingly enjoyable film and one I highly recommend checking out.

First off, this movie stars a different wizard than the one most fans are familiar with. There is no Harry Potter in this film. Instead there’s Newt Scamander, and older wizard traveling to New York with a suitcase full of fantastic creatures and a secret mission of his own. The whole movie takes place in New York and is set in 1926 giving the film a very interesting vibe. In America, the wizarding world is very different. There are different rules, different customs and new people to meet and learn about. For instance they call muggles no-maj and wizards are encouraged to stay away from the non-magical community. It’s an interesting exploration of a world we thought we were familiar with. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Fantastic Beasts’…
