Title: Star Wars: Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge
Author: Martha Wells
Release Date: September 24th, 2013
Warning: This review may contain minor spoilers.
Many times liking a book or not comes down to personal preference in what types of stories and characters you prefer. Razor’s Edge started at a disadvantage with me.The book was set in an era I normally don’t get excited about and featured a character that is my least favorite of the “Big 3″. I mean I like Leia fine, but I prefer her more as an older Jedi and less as a young politician.
But then I saw the official blurb for the book and noticed something about Alderaanian pirates. Pirates are pretty cool. Maybe this book won’t be so bad after all.
So did Razor’s Edge surprise me or just meet my already low expectations? Well before we get into that let’s look at the official publisher’s summary.
