Publisher's Summary

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.

Great short story

This was a great short story. And the performance was good. I can't wait for episode seven to see how they are linked.

Too Short!

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!

A simple story and that's all we need.

It makes the anticipation for The Force Awakens all the more sweet. Questions keep getting raised, but it doesn't distract from the story.

Great Story.

What did you love best about The Perfect Weapon?

The story and characters had such potential.

Any additional comments?

I just wish it had been a lot longer.

Well worth the $2!

This was a fun little book, well worth the $2. Star Wars fans who enjoy the dark underworld of scoundrels and bounty hunters will especially like it.

Exciting Short Story

This was a great little short story about a lady with exceptional skills who finds trouble in an unexpected assignment. Bazine Metal is a great character, who can take care of herself, but comes face to face with an astonishing betrayal. While this was an interesting tale, we never find out what was in the case she was hired to retrieve, or what happened to her new "partner." There should have been an extra chapter or an epilogue. Great Story and January LaVoy did an excellent job with the narration.
