    "fantastic"

    This novel is a great background story to the force awakens supplying some much needed materials on the state of the galaxy. Bloodlines answers some of the obvious questions for the Force Awakens like why is there a resistance and a new Republic and where did the first order come from?

    "Intriguing"

    Finally we get answers.Amazing book.full of intrigue and loaded with information.The only negative thing is that it doesn't continue with Thane but it was good to finally know how the resistance got started.It took all my strength to put it down for another day.well going to start it over and listen to it again. Good reading or listening everyone

    "Entertaining yet revealing"

    Bit slow taking off, short plot. Saying that it was quite revealing and entertaining to learn how the first order came about , and how the senate yet again has fallen into the same situation that led to the clone wars. And it didn't take thousands of years but only a few decades.

    I couldn't put it down, pretty good can't wait for the next book!

    "What "Aftermath" should have been"

    I really enjoy the production value of these new Star Wars novels, including the recent "Aftermath" novel by Chuck Wendig. That novel, however, was a disappointment. "Bloodline" is everything I wanted aftermath to be. It gives a direct insight into how the First Order rises to power and allows us to get a better insight into Leia and her feelings about her parentage. Claudia Gray did a wonderful job with the plot, setting up interesting characters with different perspectives about the former Empire in a way that makes the rise of the First Order believable. I hope she continues to contribute more to the new EU.

    "Terrific"

    While it's hard not to see the plot coming, as it is a prequel to the movie its still an enjoyable tale. I can't want to see what's next from Claudia Gray.

    I was also thoroughly entertained by the narrator. A wonderful bit of story telling. As a fan, u feel comfortable recommending the book.

    "literally kept me listening for 10 hours straight"

    this book was phenomenal. between the voice acting from the narrator, the sound effects and the writing, I was glued to the story for 10 hours straight. I am a truck driver and usually I take breaks while listening to a book. I couldn't take a break with this book. I had to know what happened next. this is my favorite star wars book so far. it's a must hear.

    "important to understanding the force awakens!"

    this is a particularly well written book setting up the political background that underlies the story elements in force awakens. It tracks Princess Leia fairly closely and how she comes to be the leader of the resistance movement. It gives him key insights into the origins of the first order, which in this writer's opinion you're missed and overlooked terribly in the film. It is perhaps a little bit shorter than I would have liked it to have been, but it is key to understanding the story. An exceptional voice performance by January LaVoy.

    "Totally Redeems Leia"

    I If you thought Leia incompetent/ridiculous, the "Resistance" confusing in TFA, if you are anything like me, you'll not treat this book as a gratuitous "Easter Egg", but a greatly important plot pivot point, and one that simply couldn't have been accomplished within the film itself.

    I must admit, I am one of those Star Wars fans that read almost every book in the EL, lamented it's loss, and, though I initially adored TFA, I too was among those that essentially saw it as a reboot of A New Hope. I thought Leia's role to be not merely superfluous other than to deliver certain characters to certain climatic moments... I found her to be offensive, almost odious. Her being a "General" seemed utterly ridiculous, given that there a} There shouldn't be a Resistance if she was the government b} given that she hadn't a clue about Starkiller et al

    In any case, this utterly redeems Leia.

    The book is excellent in all ways, and if you ARE one of those that would purchase books just to get those easter eggs (I own up to it.. As I said, I read all the books!), you will be relieved....but I must warn you of the burden. Two of them in particular have me tearing at my hair, since they are too blatant to be coincidence and deal with the core of the next movies rhetorical purpose and yet we won't be able to get catharsis: someone please disabuse me of my ignorance if I'm wrong here, but the background of what Ben and Luke are doing pre-TFA (if they get communications, how many Padawans he's training, etc) won't be revealed until the next movie
