SciFi Book Review: Star Wars: Cobalt Squadron

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Cobalt Squadron by by Elizabeth Wein

Will Rose and Paige help save a planet, or will their actions lead to all-out war?

Sisters Rose and Paige Tico are a part of the resistance and the bomber group Cobalt Squadron. Paige is a gunner and Rose a brilliant technician. Cobalt Squadron assists Atterran citizens from a First Order blockade. The people of Atterra are dying from a lack of resources – a scene all too familiar for the Tico sisters.

Star Wars fans were introduced to Rose and (briefly) Paige in The Last Jedi. The sisters have a sweet relationship and unbreakable bond. This is an exciting story with plenty of drama and intrigue. However, I would have liked a bit more character development – especially from other members of the Cobalt Squadron. Not knowing some of the characters better, lessens the impact of events. This quick, fast-paced read is a just one short adventure that ties in to an event in The Force Awakens – and ends just before The Last Jedi. I can’t get enough of these new characters.
