Legendary Adventures: Red Harvest

Legendary Adventures #5 Red Harvest

The Legendary Adventures have never come across anything as gruesome as this: Sith Lords, foul beasts, evil Emperors…none of this compares to the shock and horrors of introducing concepts first seen in Deathtroopers into The Old Republic timeline as we enter the Red Harvest!

Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide Review

Rogue One The Ultimate Visual Guide

If you have ever wished that you could know more about a film than would ever be necessary, then Pablo Hildago has an incredible gift for you. Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide contains a galaxy’s worth of knowledge within its pages, giving a depth to Rogue One’s lore that makes it feel like a franchise all its own.

Young Reader’s Review: Rogue One: Rebel Dossier

Rogue One Rebel Dossier

Recently, massive multi-media pushes have accompanied everything from films to new TV shows to video games. Battlefront was accompanied by the Twilight Company novel, while Rebels gained a little supplementary material from My Rebel Sketchbook. The Force Awakens got two supplementary young reader’s books: both Rey’s Survival Journal and Poe Dameron: Flight Log, or even retellings such as Finn’s Story. Similarly, Rogue One released alongside the Rebel Dossier. How does this dossier stack up against the previous supplements?

Canon Novel Review: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

-Spoiler Review-

In 2015, Alexander Freed wrote Battlefront: Twilight Company, a great novel unfortunately surrounded by the Journey to The Force Awakens imprints and the actual movie itself in December. Despite it’s low-key status, Twilight Company may be one of the canon’s most solid novels. How does Freed stack up when adapting a movie to a novel?

Young Reader’s Review: Poe Dameron: Flight Log

Poe Dameron: Flight Log

Poe Dameron: Flight Log is the latest series of in-universe journals written from the perspective of a main character. Poe’s edition follows another from The Force Awakens: Rey’s Survival Guide. It also follows two from Rebels: Ezra and Sabine. Is this book worth the $10 ticket price?

Legendary Adventures: The Old Republic: Deceived

 Legendary Adventures #4: The Old Republic: Deceived

-Spoiler Review-

It’s hard to know, at the beginning of an adventure, what types of perils and troubles you will face on any journey. The Legendary Adventures have been no different: from exploding temples, to destruction in space, through hand to hand combat, against droids and clones, I have been wearied and delayed in relaying my last report. But wait no longer: read my experience of Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived! Continue reading “Legendary Adventures: The Old Republic: Deceived”

Legendary Adventures: The Old Republic: Revan

Legendary Adventures #3: Revan

-Spoiler Review-

I’m about to reveal why I am the worst Star Wars fan, ever: when I picked up this book, I couldn’t remember the plot line of either Knights of the Old Republic games…like, at all. I had to go back to Wookieepedia to refresh my memory. Sure, it all came back to me pretty easily, but I still felt horrible. Woof. Feels good to get that off my chest! Now, how does The Old Republic: Revan stand as a milestone in my Legendary Adventure?

Young Reader Review: The Force Awakens: Finn’s Story

The Force Awakens: Finn's Story

-Spoiler Review-

Set in the same vein as Rey’s Story, a young reader’s adaptation of The Force Awakens which showed the events of the film through Rey’s eyes, released earlier this year, comes Finn’s Story. Jesse Holland re-tells the narrative of The Force Awakens through Finn’s eyes, maybe one of the most undeveloped points of the view in the Sequel Trilogy so far. Is there enough worth gleaning from Finn’s eyes to justify another retreading of the film?

Legendary Adventures: The Lost Tribe of the Sith

Legendary Adventures #2: The Lost Tribe of the Sith

-Spoiler Review-

The Legendary Adventures should have started with the Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void. But let me tell you upfront: This review series is not going to be strict about order. If anything, I’ll be strict about buying novels with the Legends banner. With that in mind, we start with The Lost Tribe of the Sith! And, let me tell you: I wish I started with Dawn of the Jedi.
