Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content. From the ashes of the Empire has arisen another threat to the galaxy’s freedom: the ruthless First Order. Fortunately, new heroes have emerged to take up arms - and perhaps lay down their lives - for the cause.

Amazing! The "additional scenes" and added insight into the characters' thoughts and actions were a fantastic addition to an already great story. Not to mention Marc Thompson delivered yet another incredible performance and Jason Fry's contributions/adaptations to Rian Johnson's script were fantastic. Highly recommend for any Star Wars fan and especially Canon lovers.

After the humiliating theft of the Death Star plans and the resulting destruction of the battle station, the Empire is on the defensive. In response to this stunning defeat, the Imperial Navy has authorized the formation of an elite team of soldiers, known as Inferno Squad. Their mission: infiltrate and eliminate the remnants of Saw Gerrera's Partisans. Following the death of their leader, the Partisans have carried on his extremist legacy, determined to thwart the Empire - no matter what the cost.

Christie Golden is one of the best authors Star Wars has for the new canon. I also really enjoyed the use of John Williams music and thought Janina Gavankar was a fantastic narrator!
I'm looking forward to continuing these character's stories in Battlefront 2!

In the war for control of the galaxy between the armies of the dark side and the Republic, former Jedi Master turned ruthless Sith Lord Count Dooku has grown ever more brutal in his tactics. Despite the powers of the Jedi and the military prowess of their clone army, the sheer number of fatalities is taking a terrible toll. And when Dooku orders the massacre of a flotilla of helpless refugees, the Jedi Council feels it has no choice but to take drastic action: targeting the man responsible for so many war atrocities, Count Dooku himself.

While I'm sad that it was never made into an episode arc, I'm glad it was expanded into a larger (and probably slightly matured) book. And the Narrator was amazing! I predict a bright future for the new SW canon after reading this. 5/5
