    "This novel was amazing to read especially since I'm a huge Star Wars fan. The book is basically a pre-cursor to the Rogue One movie that came out last year. The novel helps to setup the events and backdrop before the invasion to stop the super weapon (Death Star) from being built. I was pretty hooked on the story as soon as I started reading it; I couldn't for the life of me put it down. If you're a fan of Star Wars then I highly recommend you read this book. "

    "Bloodline is one of the new books in the Star Wars universe after they went and blew up the previous canon universe. They did keep the generally good authors and stories though, so it's a good read and tells an interesting storline."

    "This novel was released in 2016 so it is definitely not new. It is, however, very highly rated so it's possibly the best newest novel. I would say this is a decent solution. "

    "This is a great star wars novel for middle school aged kids, but if you're a fan (like me), you will probably enjoy it too. It's a great starter novel and not much star wars knowledge is required to get reading."

    "I feel like this is a good choice for a solution for the topic. The book itself is very well written and represents the Star Wars fan fiction category very well. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction material, or someone who is just a fan of Star Wars."

    "Before the Awakening (Star Wars) is a decent new Star Wars canon book focusing on the new Star Wars trilogy characters Rey, Finn, and Poe. It adds backstories to them that lead to The Force Awakens which frankly should have been in the movie themselves."
