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.
