Qi’ra knew Nienye was behind the ambush. Why he turned on her, she couldn’t understand. She had never treated him poorly and they seemed to have a close relationship. And yet, he had betrayed her and T-38 was dead because of his traitorous actions.
The tears she shed had reached its end. Now she was filled with an anger that burned like a coal inside her stomach. Continue reading QI’RA: Chapter Forty-One
I’ve read over a fourth of The Last Shot, a companion to Solo: A Star Wars Story. It features a story of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian that jumps back and forth between their years before the events of Solo and their years after Return of the Jedi.
I tried to really get into this novel, and maybe I’ll try to finish over it the next few days, but like Solo: A Star Wars Story, I couldn’t sink my teeth into this novel as much I wanted to. Daniel José Older tries to bring Lando and Han to life in a realistic way but I couldn’t connect. Lando feels too much like Lando, if that makes any sense. And Han’s constant grumpiness and lack of cockiness in this story makes him less likable than normal.
What I did like, however, were the father/son and even uncle/nephew moments with two-year-old Ben Solo. Years before he would turn evil and kill the very man who brought him to existence, years before the dark side would begin to corrupt him and he would start becoming a troubled child, he was a sweet, innocent, dark-eyed baby who was just as cute as could be.
It’s so sad. 😭
Anyway, like I said before, I’ll try to complete this story but as of now, it’s good, but it hasn’t gripped me in the way that the novelization for Rogue One did. Just like I find myself unable to watch Solo anymore even though it’s good, The Last Shot won’t be making it to the top of my must-read list.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have an amazing day. May the Force be with you.
A few years ago we were introduced to a character unlike any other in the Star Wars movies, a stormtrooper who became a rebel. Not only was he different than most characters in the franchise but he would wield a lightsaber into battle and have some serious Force-sensitive tendencies.
Since 2016 after having watched The Force Awakens quite a few times I began to wonder, is Finn Force-sensitive? Sure enough, it was confirmed to be the case in The Rise of Skywalker. Now I’m beginning to ask another question; are Jannah and her fellow rebellious stormtroopers also one with the Force? Continue reading Could Jannah and Her Fellow Stormtroopers Have the Force?
