Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

High Noon on Jakku, as the title suggests, this is a very enjoyable western story set on Jakku. Besides being an enjoyable and fast read, there really is not much to tell. A Recipe for Death: Gordon Ramsey meets Sherlock Holmes and crossbred with Jabba the Hutt… It is written very entertaining, but the story itself was not that interesting to me. All Creatures Large and Small is a delightful short tale about a storyteller telling a story. Like a magician directs the viewers’ attention to something else, so does this strange creature accompanied with many animals. The canon story of a non-canon retelling of canon history. The Face of Evil was strangly disturbing. True Love was as good as all other tales.
Considering what is happening in Kanata's castle I have to say, that she is an even worse creature than Jabba the Hutt.
What really stood out to me was the Crimson Corsair. Even though he rarely said anything and rarely was an active part in the story, he still came over like awesome and cool… a true Boba Fett like character. The tale itself was also amazing. Loved the way it connected the prequels with the sequels.
This book is a very pleasant read with an amazing finale.

Rating: 4 / 5
