Reviews Cobalt Squadron

  • Christy
    After TLJ, I was like, I really want a Tico sisters book. Well past Christy is smart...she had preordered this book and it showed up yesterday. So great. Finished it from the time I woke up this morning!

    This probably deserves a 3/3.5, but Kelly Marie Tran's narration of this backstory for her Star Wars character is so endearing, I'm going with a 4.Cobalt Squadron is a short YA novel that describes a mission undertaken by these Resistance fighters (think of the Berlin Airlift) that ends up coinciding with the First Order's attack on the Hosnian System. The story ends with the squadron following Vice Admiral Holdo as she goes to assist the evacuat...

    Obvious lead in is obvious. Clearly a book designed to give is background info on Rose, who I an quite fond of. They damn well better not make her a love interest of Finn. Because Finn and Poe belong together....anyway.Good background on Rose. An interesting story....still doesn't justify the existence of those ugly ass bombers. TL:DR Backstory on Rose. Fun story.

This book explains not just the backstory of the brilliant Tico sisters but also successfully explains away the absence of Bombers and Holdo from The Force Awakens while setting up their entrances into The Last Jedi. A few of the New Canon books have taken side-quests that meant little to ...

    I really didn’t care for this book. It was like the X-Wing books in the Legends where there is just a lot of fighting in space. Reading that isn’t like seeing it. If that is enjoyable then the book was okay. The only thing that was great was Roses’ backstory and how she relates to Episode VII. So the last part of the book was good. Overall, worth reading as a tie-in, but it’s just a really boring time.
