“The reign of the Galactic Empire has reached the Outer Rim planet of Jelucan, where aristocratic Than Kyrell and rural villager Ciena Ree bond over their love of flying. Enrolling at the Imperial Academy is nothing less than a dream come true for both of them. But Thane sours on the dream when he sees first-hand the horrific tactics the Empire uses to maintain its ironclad rule.
Bitter and disillusioned, he joins the fledgling Rebellion – putting Ciena in an unbearable position between her loyalty to the Empire and her love for the man she’s known since childhood.
Now on opposite sides of the war, will these friends turned foes ever find a way to be together, or will duty tear them – and the galaxy – apart?”
If you hadn’t guessed by the blurb this is a Star Wars book with Star Wars things so it’s not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. But going into this book, I didn’t know what to expect. I knew it was a new-canon Star Wars book, so I was expecting a joyful romp though space and to planets I knew well. I had also heard really good things about this book from many other Star Wars fans, so naturally it was the first book I ordered. Overall I expected a simple Star Wars adventure, one I would enjoy but wouldn’t really remember (like Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel).
What I didn’t expect, however, was how emotionally powerful this book was. From the very first page this book had me hooked.
