Review:
Canto Bight is the glamorous destination that Finn and Rose travel to for a mission for the Resistance. This collection of short stories gives fans a deeper look at the seedier side of the city. The first story has a light-hearted feel with a naive but loveable protagonist who has the worst all-expense-paid vacation ever. A fight over a rare bottle of wine becomes deadly. And mysterious sisters control its fate. When a masseuse with a dark past discover that his daughter was abducted by a mobster, he’ll stop at nothing to get her back. And lastly, a professional gambler meets a group of brothers who have a unique ability to affect fate. And he only has one night to turn his luck around. I highly recommend this fun and exciting group of stories set in the Star Wars universe. Each story has fantastic characters with captivating storylines. I thoroughly enjoyed each one.
