This book was a bit of a struggle for me. I really liked getting more background on Krennic, Galen and Lyra Erso, and Tarkin, but the overall book was really slow. It made it easy to put down.
I do wish I had read this before Rogue One came out. I guess I’ll have to see the movie again to see how it affects my opinion of Krennic.
I liked getting to know Lyra and was secretly hoping she was a secret Jedi. I liked her environmentalist-ness. It was interesting to see the Empire’s destruction through her eyes.
Overall, I am glad I read this, but I did kind of have to make myself do it.
