Momaw Nadon, an Ithorian, resides on Tatooine after being exiled from his home planet, Ithor, for revealing Ithorian gardening secrets to Alima, albeit under threat of torture. While living on Tatooine, Nadon still honored the Ithorian traditions and tried to adapt large trees from Ithor to the hot dry weather on Tatooine. On Tatooine, just after the Battle of Tatooine, he met Alima, who was searching for the missing droids. Alima threatened to kill his beloved trees if he did not help him find those two droids. The pacifistic Nadon attempted to kill Alima, but because of Nadon’s lacking experience with weapons, the attempt failed and Nadon was humiliated by Alima once more. Finally, Nadon discovered the truth when he saw old Ben Kenobi in Chalmun’s Spaceport Cantina. The old man had the wanted droids. Nadon then hid in the background when stormtroopers tried to stop Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon from escaping with Kenobi, the droids and a young farmboy. After having lost the droids, the Imperial Prefect searched for a scapegoat he could blame for this failure. Nadon then appeared on the scene and told the Imperial Prefect that he told Alima about Millennium Falcon and Alima didn’t report that information. Nadon was willing to swear under oath and ready to testify that in imperial court. The officer taking justice in his own hand shot Alima, killing him. Nadon was horrified and saddened at what he had done, but a small part of him was glad, for him and his trees were safe. To make up for this, he took two cell samples from Alima’s corpse for later cloning. In keeping with the Law of Life, Nadon made two clones, so that Alima would pay his debt to the Ithorians—and Nadon would pay his to Alima.
Short and sweet… No more. no less. Haha I wish I had more to say about this short story. But it really was just filler and a entertainment all around.
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.
