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.

This was a standard good read for me. As all good books, the author did a good job of carrying you along the plot line while also taking you along the individual characters' stories and struggles. It also feels like a good bridge between the Last Jedi and the Rise of Skywalker. There was nothing exceptional about the story, though, nor did you get sucked into the minds or hearts of the characters, so four stars, not five. The narration was good, but the author used a voice like Snidely Whiplash for one of the antagonists, which just seemed too caricaturish, especially considering the character's personality. Otherwise, the narration, background ambiance and music really lent to the book.
