    Han Solo is a handsome young rogue with dreams of flying off into the stars and finding adventure. Oops...um, sorry. Poe Dameron is those things too, but in a much more poorly written way. If you wanted to know more about the Spice Runners of Kajimi (without really finding out anything about them or seeing any actual spice running) then this might be the book for you. We've occasionally been disappointed, we've sometimes been surprised or conflicted by thing in the Star Wars universe. Not even skeezy Prince Xizor had us as upset as Freefall. We normally try to keep things pretty positive, but this may be the worst Star Wars book any of us have read.

    The second book of the series from Alexander Freed. The ragtag group of pilots from Alphabet Squadron is back, but they're finally working as a team. You'll get to know them all much better this time around, but if you were hoping for more Hera you're out of luck. What you do get is some crazy stuff that we won't spoil here. Spoilers are for the show! There are some excellent twists and turns, and we can't wait to see what the third book brings. If Alphabet Squadron wasn't quite what you wanted in a book give Shadow Fall a shot.

    Today you get two books for the price of one. Padme wasn't well fleshed out in the prequel movies. Now is our chance to learn more about who she was outside of her weird relationship to Anakin. The first book shows her transition from queen to senator. The second is a prequel the gives us the girl becoming queen. The Queen's Gambit isn't out yet so you'll just have to wait to see what that transition will be. Senator to corpse? Sorry, maybe that was too soon.

    Poor Obi-Wan Kenobi. He lost his master, and got landed with a kid he wasn't prepared to train. A kid who went on to whine about sand, murder a bunch of younglings, and betray everyone and everything Obi-Wan ever cared about. So when he goes off to Tatooine to watch over young Luke Skywalker he's not in the best mood. Luckily there's enough local drama to keep him occupied for a while. Between a lonely widow, Tusken Raider attacks, and a wannabe big shot moisture farmer he's got his hands full. Will Obi-Wan ever get to live in peace or is he doomed to spend the rest of his life haunted by his past?

     A ragtag group of heroes going up against a seemingly unstoppable force may sound like a trope. It is, but it's a trope that works well in the Star Wars universe. The problem with the first book of a series is that you can sometimes spend a little too much time in set up. Whether that's true or not for Alphabet Squadron is a matter of personal opinion, but there are some good things going on here. Plus, if you're like Beth and haven't gotten through the Aftermath series yet this is a time period you won't have seen in the new canon before.
