Synopsis:
As the final showdown between the New Republic and the Empire draws near, all eyes turn to a once-isolated planet: Jakku.
The Battle of Endor shattered the Empire, scattering its remaining forces across the galaxy. But the months following the Rebellion’s victory have not been easy. The fledgling New Republic has suffered a devastating attack from the Imperial remnant, forcing the new democracy to escalate their hunt for the hidden enemy.
For her role in the deadly ambush, Grand Admiral Rae Sloane is the most wanted Imperial war criminal—and one-time rebel pilot Norra Wexley, back in service at Leia’s urgent request, is leading the hunt. But more than just loyalty to the New Republic drives Norra forward: Her husband was turned into a murderous pawn in Sloane’s assassination plot, and now she wants vengeance as much as justice.
But Sloane, too, is on a furious quest: pursuing the treacherous Gallius Rax to the barren planet Jakku. As the true mastermind behind the Empire’s devastating attack, Rax has led the Empire to its defining moment. The cunning strategist has gathered the powerful remnants of the Empire’s war machine, preparing to execute the late Emperor Palpatine’s final plan. As the Imperial fleet orbits Jakku, an armada of Republic fighters closes in to finish what began at Endor. Norra and her crew soar into the heart of an apocalyptic clash that will leave land and sky alike scorched. And the future of the galaxy will finally be decided.

This story occurs approximately 5 years after Episode IV: A New Hope.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2017:

I liked the individual books more, than I liked them as a trilogy. Might sound strange, but each book is a 4 in 5 for me, but the whole is just a 3 in 5. The reason is, that I really got to like the new characters, they all were interesting and engaging, I liked their arcs in each book, but also spread across all three. What I did not really like is the overarching scheme, the overall arc, the plot divided across all three books. It was not bad, it just was a lot of fuss about something rather not thrilling.
When the chips were down I was really disappointed thinking: That it all amounted to just THIS? The third book is as the two before it, neither better, nor worse. It is exciting, but when both sides of the conflict have a mutual goal, then no matter the outcome of said conflict, the end result will be kind off the same. At least we have some info bridging “Return of the Jedi” to “The Force Awakens” but I doubt we needed to have three books to tell this story. The first one, truly was barely the prelude and although way better than its reputation I understand people being frustrated with it.

Rating: 4 / 5
