Publisher's Summary

Soon to be seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, welcome to the casino city of Canto Bight. A place where exotic aliens, captivating creatures, and other would-be high rollers are willing to risk everything to make their fortunes. Set across one fateful evening, these four original novellas explore the deception and danger of the lavish casino city.

An honest salesman meets a career criminal as a dream vacation turns into the worst nightmare imaginable in a story by Saladin Ahmed.

Dreams and schemes collide when a deal over a priceless bottle of wine becomes a struggle for survival, as told by Mira Grant.

Old habits die hard when a servant is forced into a mad struggle for power among Canto Bight's elite in a tale by Rae Carson.

A deadbeat gambler has one last chance to turn his luck around; all he has to do is survive one wild night, as told by John Jackson Miller.

In Canto Bight, one is free to revel in excess, untouched from the problems of a galaxy once again descending into chaos and war. Dreams can become reality, but the stakes have never been higher - for there is a darkness obscured by all the glamour and luxury.

Cast of narrators:

  • Rules of the Game by Saladin Ahmed, read by Sean Kenin
  • The Wine in Dreams by Mira Grant, read by Saskia Maarleveld
  • Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing by Rae Carson, read by Marc Thompson

fun, but no more significance

Absolutely 0 lore significance, but all four stories were immensely fun and engaging throughout. The performances were of the usual star wars audio book quality.

Do not get

Stories are slow and not Stars Wars worthy. Do not waste the time or money.

A fantastic Primer on the new Star Wars planet

Amazing short stories in the Star Wars equivalent of Las Vegas! Im generally skeptical of short stories and expected to be disappointed, but was incredibly surprised by how much heart these 4 tales had and how much fun they were to listen to. They help provide a snapshot into the lives of people who visit, work, and live in Canto Bight in an incredibly expressive, vibrant way. if you are a Star Wars fan getting ready to see The Last Jedi, this is a must read!

Completely oddball and thoroughly entertaining

This was a very strange—in a fantastic way—collection of Star Wars stories. In short, Canto Bight is the Vegas equivalent in the Star Wars universe. And these stories could easily be dropped into Vegas or any other world, and they’d still be great. Most of them involve some sort of heist. There’s a clear Ocean’s Eleven homage that is confusing at times but, let’s be honest, so was Ocean’s Eleven until th

Pretty good!

The Canto Bight arc was my least favorite arc of The Last Jedi. It felt more magical like Harry Potter then Sci-fi, but regardless, I loved the movie.
I came into this book with very low expectations and came out having really enjoyed it! It was fun, thrilling, and sparked my imagination. Great casual read.

A fun ride through an unusual setting

First things first: despite the ‘Journey to the Last Jedi’ heading, this book doesn’t really tie in to the movies much at all. It has no main characters from any of them. Its only real connection is taking place in one of the settings from TLJ and starring a few of the background characters. I don’t mind that but if you want something essential to the movie, this ain’t for you.

When you get past that though, you end up with a set of really fun adventures. All four stories showcase a different side of Canto Bight, including locales barely glimpsed in the film (or cut entirely, as in the case of the bathhouse!) The characters are likable, the plots are entertaining, and the narration is truly excellent, in keeping with the high standard of Star Wars audiobooks.

If I had one small issue, it’s that I regularly wanted to pause and search wookiepedia to find images of the characters from the movie- but with an audiobook and such exotic names, it can be hard to work out exactly how to spell it let alone look it up! But there’s not a lot they can do about that.

Overall it’s a nonessential but very enjoyable romp through a little seen side of a galaxy far far away that gives you better appreciation for some of the small details in one sequence of the new movie

It's alright.

Some of it was good some of it not so good. I wanted to learn a little bit more about Canto Bight after seeing the Last Jedi and this gave me some of what I wanted but not as much as I wanted. It seems to be geared towards a younger audience.

okay at best.

It was okay at best. kept engaged but lacked substance to the Last Jedi. I wish it had something to do with the plot of the Last Jedi.

Well executed

Great presentation as expected, but I didn't find the second story to be very compelling or interesting. Or maybe I just don't have a taste for the droning on of aristocratic wine connoisseurs.

great read

This book helped me get a grasp on how this planet functioned as a whole and it would be great if we saw more like this.
