Kanan #1 is now out and we give our brief thoughts.
Review: Servants of the Empire: Edge of the Galaxy by Jason Fry (or, Imperial Hogwarts)
Edge of the Galaxy, by Jason Fry, is the first book in the new series ‘Servants of the Empire’, and it can easily be summed up in one simple phrase: ‘boy realises Empire is evil’. I can go home now, right? I mean, once that’s done I can stop? Probably best to write a little more. It’s a review, after all. I could probably also add a ‘duh’ on the end of that five word sentence, because really? It’s the Empire! They march around in faceless white armour and dull grey uniforms and ride in fighters that make incredibly annoying screeching sounds that probably causes dogs (space dogs?) to bury their heads in a baby Sarlacc pit. And really, you know something is evil when it upsets dogs, because they’re nature’s Sniffer Outer of Evil.
Yes, that’s totally a thing.
This is what the book is about: people who genuinely believe that the Empire is, ultimately, good. Maybe a little flawed, but good. Before I go further, I should point out that there are minor spoilers for the book and the TV series Rebels from here on out.
