Star Wars Book Challenge 9: Bloodline (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel)

So we have Bloodline (Star Wars Disney Canon Novel)….. I wanted to like this novel.. There were a number things I could get behind. The story over I liked, it’s just the writing style seemed off putting..

Witness the birth of the Resistance

When the Rebellion defeated the Empire in the skies above Endor, Leia Organa believed it was the beginning to a lasting peace. But after decades of vicious infighting and partisan gridlock in the New Republic Senate, that hope seems like a distant memory.

Now a respected senator, Leia must grapple with the dangers that threaten to cripple the fledgling democracy—from both within and without. Underworld kingpins, treacherous politicians, and Imperial loyalists are sowing chaos in the galaxy. Desperate to take action, senators are calling for the election of a First Senator. It is their hope that this influential post will bring strong leadership to a divided galaxy.

As the daughter of Darth Vader, Leia faces with distrust the prospect of any one person holding such a powerful position—even when supporters suggest Leia herself for the job. But a new enemy may make this path Leia’s only option. For at the edges of the galaxy, a mysterious threat is growing.

The Stilted awkwardness of the prequels and lacking charisma… Is what almost killed the whole thing for me. I mean this story line puts Leia in the more badass light. But everything about the story is rather flat and the author (at least to me) didn’t take the time to flesh out the people within the book.

Star Wars Book Challenge 8.5: Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina

Hammertong: The Tale of the “Tonnika Sisters” is a short story written by Timothy Zahn for the short story Anthology Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina. Perhaps most significant for establishing that the Tonnika sisters seen in A New Hope were in fact Shada D’ukal and Karoly D’ulin in disguise. *Spoilers*

A group of Mistryl Shadow Guard—an ancient sect of women warriors—has been hired by Kellering to transport “Hammertong”, a mysterious top-secret Imperial project. The women go to the research facility to guard the transport as additional security. They are attacked by the Imperials and Team Prime Manda D’ulin and Pav D’armon are killed. Shada D’ukal and Karoly D’ulin find Hammertong ready to transport inside a Strike-class medium cruiser. Angry by death of Manda and Pav, they decide to steal the Imperial project and fly to Tatooine. They evade the Imperials and crash-land in the Dune Sea; in order to transport Hammertong off-planet, they need to hire a freighter. Shada and Karoly disguise themselves as the Tonnika sisters, professional con artists, and go to Chalmun’s Spaceport Cantina in Mos Eisley, where they are arrested by an Imperial officer, who believes they truly are the sisters. In jail, a guard named Riij Winward knows they’re impersonators and as proof tells them he knew about the crash-landed Strike cruiser, and where the real Tonnika sisters are. He frees them in exchange for leading him to the crash site before the sand conceals the entrance to the already half-buried cruiser. They go to the Dune Sea, and Riij tells them what the Hammertong really is: part of the Death Star II’s superlaser. He reveals also he is member of the Rebel Alliance, asks for the weapon, and gives them an offer to join the Alliance. They refuse to give him Hammertong and are ready to return to their home planet, until they learn Riij took their droid with the blueprints of Hammertong inside it. They decide not to go after him and Shada seriously considers joining the Rebels on her own if Karoly refuses.

I rather enjoyed it for what it was.. It did it’s job of answering questions and adding a new spin on certain scenes. One part I thought was funny, was they still called Docking Bay 94 as Docking Bay 97.

What to do and where to begin? After a number of attempts to write and finish everything on my blog /website. I started questioning if I was ever going to get back into to. One of the big factors is I don’t have my computer at the moment. So I’m limited to my phone and tablet. 

There has  been so much going on as of late. Haven’t really said much about it to anyone really. Till I got a message from my friend checking up on me… Got me thinking, I really need to keep this site. I just need to finish everything and pull through life..
