Publisher's 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.

Rushed Audio, Shallow Plot

I think this is the last Star Wars audiobook I'll buy. The narrator has a rather distracting habit of making all the characters sound like they're perpetually annoyed and rolling their eyes and also tries way too hard to make even the most mundane sentence sound exciting and mind-blowing. His southern accent also slips in every now and then which is off-putting when he voices characters that shouldn't have one like Leia. Story is good and I enjoyed it as a follow up to the Battlefront II video game. Does feel more like a side quest instead of a major revitalisation of the Resistance though. Also the sub-plot with the secretary being abused by her boss is as boring as it is out of place in a Star Wars book. Would have much rather spent more time with Rey or Iden's daughter.

Lackluster

initially struggled with the narrator's enthusiasm and delivery, but eventually got used to it. I just... I don't know, I'm not a far of this particular installment.

Slow and Frustrating

I found the story frustratingly slow. The narrator was difficult to follow and was overly excited.

just aweful

after reading great star wars books like the thrawn trilogy or new Jedi order with a great story and ledgendry characters with great character development and an exciting story that pulls you in this was just aweful. I tried I really tried to get into it but star wars is ruined now it's such a shame. It's unreadable

Disney Canon Finding it’s Feet

I finally feel like the Disney Sequel Canon is finally finding its feet. The story was a great bridge for post Last Jedi and the narration and sound was top quality as expected from Marc Thompson these days, would highly recommend

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. :)

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!
