Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens with this exclusive short story featuring a quick-witted mercenary who takes big risks for bigger rewards - and now faces the challenge that will take her to the edge.
There are plenty of mercenaries, spies, and guns for hire in the galaxy. But probably none as dangerous and determined as Bazine Netal. A master of disguise - and lethal with a blade, a blaster, or bare handed - she learned from the best. Now it's her turn to be the teacher - even if schooling an eager but inexperienced recruit in the tricks of her trade is the last thing she wants to do. But it's the only way to score the ship she needs to pull off her latest job.
An anonymous client has hired Bazine to track down an ex-stormtrooper and recover the mysterious package he's safeguarding. Payment for the mission promises to be astronomical, but the obstacles facing Bazine will prove to be formidable. And though her eager new sidekick has cyber skills crucial to the mission, only Bazine's razor-sharp talents will mean the difference between success and failure - and life and death.

This shouldn't have been a short story, it should have been full length! I hope hope Bazine gets some time in TFA, other than a background character sitting on an oversized alien's lap.
Maybe she's the Boba Fett of this trilogy. With better results!
Excellent performance as well!
This was a great short story. And the performance was good. I can't wait for episode seven to see how they are linked.
The story and characters had such potential.
I just wish it had been a lot longer.
Was a decent listen that felt like Star Wars. I found moments where the narrator was distracting but I was able to get back into the story quickly.
January does a great job with the characters and the story.
Sounds effects are there, but unlike some books, they add to the story rather than distract you.
The story itself is good; I really enjoy star wars books that don't rely heavily on the existing Saga's lore. This is a neat look into others parts and aspects of the star wars universe.
The book has a nice pace that keeps you engaged throughout.
An enjoyable little bit of exposition with a great narrator. A decent short story, and the only real complaint I have is really that it is in fact so short. Wouldn't mind a full novel with this character and this narrator. Slight potential hint at a few things in TFA if you're paying attention and tying together other clues from other books, etc, but nothing truly meaningful. A nice little story giving some more backstory, context, etc, to a visually intriguing background character in TFA. For a few dollars, worth it, but I wouldn't recommend using a credit on it since it's so short.
