    "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?

    Story
    "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.

    "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!

    "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.

    Story
    "This will begin to make things right."
    What made the experience of listening to Star Wars: Bloodline - New Republic the most enjoyable?

    The movie sound effects really connect you with the movies you remember and love.


    Would you recommend Star Wars: Bloodline - New Republic to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, for Star Wars fans. This helps to explain what happened in the 30 years between Return of the Jedi and the Force Awakens including why there is a Resistance separate and apart from the government of the New Republic. But let's be honest. This is a Star Wars novel. It isn't War and Peace.


    Which character – as performed by January LaVoy – was your favorite?

    Gotta go with Princess Leia. She is the focus of the story, and January LaVoy does a very nice job of channeling Leia in her performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nah.

    "Fantastic"

    After the mess "Aftermath" was I've been hesitant of purchasing books leading up to "The Force Awakens." However, "Bloodline" and "Lost Stars" have both been excellent. I had a bit of skepticism surrounding the narrator, but she's perfect for Bloodlines "Leia" thick plot. If you're not a Leia fan, don't worry...this story does a great job exploring the impact Darth Vader had on individuals and ends up revealing much of the political plot that results in the formation of The First Order. A perfect story for Star Wars fans!
