Summary

Walk the ancient streets, meet the colourful characters and uncover the secret history of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the upcoming expansion to the Disney Parks experience!

After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary and firepower - and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.

A planet of lush forests, precarious mountains and towering, petrified trees, Batuu is on the furthest possible frontier of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space. 

The rogues, smugglers and adventurers who eke out a living on the largest settlement on the planet, Black Spire Outpost, are here to avoid prying eyes and unnecessary complications. Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.

To survive, Vi will have to seek out the good-hearted heroes hiding in a world that redefines scum and villainy. With the help of a traitorous trooper and her acerbic droid, she begins to gather a colourful band of outcasts and misfits and embarks on a mission to spark the fire of resistance on Batuu - before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.

Missing something real

This book can be considered a sequel to the authors ‘Phasma’ book which I gave 5 stars but this one is not as good SPOILERS

There seems to be a lot of product placement in this book and a missed opportunity for juicy angsty enemies to lovers story which would have given the story more emotional punch.,, the set ups all there but it is consciously swerved and I feel that’s a shame in this context. The book would have been so much richer with it.

Well worth the listen

A great addition to the Star Wars universe. Strong interesting characters and a deepening of the meaning and workings of both modern factions in the Canon. Good narrative that's only slightly let down when it swerves into brief but obvious brochure like copy from the theme park based around the setting. This doesn't detract wholly from the story though and is well worth sitting down and immersing yourself in. Star Wars is escapism at its best and this book only adds to that notion.

Enjoyable but heavy product placement

It’s a fun story continuing where ‘Phasma’ left off and introduces you to an interesting bunch of characters. Good voice performance by January LaVoy and she makes it easy to distinguish between the different characters.

As mentioned in the overview, I do feel that it leans heavily on the various shops that Disney want you to visit and spend money in when you go to Galaxy’s Edge. Some will say it makes the world feel more real, to me it just felt a little heavy handed.

A great story 👏

A great story and a great follow up to the Phasma story. I really hope there is a third story to make this a trilogy.

My review

I like this book as it is a good story of how everything can go jogun shaped and it seems impossible for anything to go right but then they make it go right and things settle down.

I think that this was my 30th time listening to it.

Decent book

I was surprised I enjoyed this book. I haven’t enjoyed many of the new Disney canon books.
I just don’t enjoy this narrator though.

Dull

This adventure is just some sort of back story for the new Disney rides. Alas. It is dull. Not a single character that I can remember or care about. Again Disney have gone for a female protagonists and yet again, full of emotions and anxieties. Rather than enthuse me about the new Disney rides, it may have just put me off.

Great listen

Great book would definitely recommend to any star wars fan. The only downside is the background audio in the cantina can be a tad repetitive but that's a minor issue

Fun Story

A fun story, albeit with some cheesey lines and predictable outcomes. It's a good run-up to TROS or a trip to Disney.
