Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

In this pivotal prequel to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the heroes of the Resistance—Poe Dameron, General Leia Organa, Rey and Finn—must fight back from the edge of oblivion.

The Resistance is in ruins. In the wake of their harrowing escape from Crait, what was once an army has been reduced to a handful of wounded heroes. Finn, Poe, Rey, Rose, Chewbacca, Leia Organa—their names are famous among the oppressed worlds they fight to liberate. But names can only get you so far and Leia’s last desperate call for aid has gone unanswered.

From the jungles of Ryloth to the shipyards of Corellia, the shadow of the First Order looms large, and those with the bravery to face the darkness are scattered and isolated. If hope is to survive, the Resistance must journey throughout the galaxy, seeking out more leaders—including those who, in days gone by, helped a nascent rebellion topple an empire. Battles will be fought, alliances will be forged and the Resistance will be reborn.

Amazing storytelling!

Really engaging story, wish there was more of it. And the audio narrator was amazing, I could really hear the voices of the characters I actually thought I heard Oscar Issac's voice for Poe Dameron.

Fun read, no complains, brilliant voiceacting

Marc Thompson's brilliant voiceacting only added to this fun book. Decent story and some old, beloved characters kept me interested all the way through.
All in all, I can recommend this. :)

gives an exiting look at the events between 8 &9

the narrator made the words come to life, like I was watching a movie. the story was great and allowed me to understand how the resistance rebuilt.

Great storytelling and immersive narration

An excellent story that serves as a perfect prequel to Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker. The narration is totally immersive. Would recommend to any fan of Star Wars.

Great story and narrator

Great story line fills in gap between 8 and 9. Narrator voices the characters extremely well, almost like the actors though Rey sounds a bit dodgy. Awesome book!

Even if you love Star Wars I feel this is 5/10

I don’t feel Poe Dameron is the right focus for this extended universe story. I tried a few times to settle in to the tale and whilst some Wedge and his wife scenes were interesting the rest was too lacking in story arcs as if it’s a stop gap until the rise of sky walker. Which even if it is as a reader I don’t want it to be spelled out to me with plodding dialogue and more of the wish wash that this sequel trilogy suffered from. Each character was not clearly there for a narrative reason in the stories. Their trajectory not thought out, aimlessly travelling through space searching for macguffins or for more rebels.
