Cobalt Squadron Reviews

  • Emily Hebert

    Ahhh, I loved this book so much! I listened to the audiobook because it was narrated by Kelly Marie Tran, and her narration combined with the fantastic, emotional storytelling made for a great read!

    This story helps connect Rose, her sister Paige, and—surprisingly—Amilyn Holdo to the events in the Force Awakens. More importantly, it provides a great look into the relationship of Rose and Paige, and I’m sure I’ll be crying over it the next time I see the Last Jedi.

    Fathiers have never been more important than after reading this book.

    After TLJ, I was like, I really want a Tico sisters book. Well past Christy is smart...she had preordered this book and it showed up yesterday. So great. Finished it from the time I woke up this morning!

    This probably deserves a 3/3.5, but Kelly Marie Tran's narration of this backstory for her

    Though this is a brief work, readers get a clearer sense of the relationship between Rose and Paige Tico, their backstory, their lives together in the Resistance, and how they came to be separated (for the first time!), flying on two different ships, in

    . It also gives another window into the state of the galaxy at the time of the new trilogy. The ending is suitably wrenching.

  • Jeramy Lord

    Clearly a book designed to give is background info on Rose, who I an quite fond of. They damn well better not make her a love interest of Finn. Because Finn and Poe belong together....anyway.

    Good background on Rose. An interesting story....still doesn't justify the existence of those ugly ass bombers.

    TL:DR Backstory on Rose. Fun story.

    As a book intended for younger readers it doesn’t wow with beautiful prose or deal with heavy emotional issues and yet it packs an unexpected powerful punch. This book explains not just the backstory of the brilliant Tico sisters but also successfully explains away the absence of Bombers and Holdo from The Force Awakens while setting up their entrances into The Last Jedi.

    A few of the New Canon books have taken side-quests that meant little to the greater narrative, and in someways Cobalt Squadr

    As a book intended for younger readers it doesn’t wow with beautiful prose or deal with heavy emotional issues and yet it packs an unexpected powerful punch. This book explains not just the backstory of the brilliant Tico sisters but also successfully explains away the absence of Bombers and Holdo from The Force Awakens while setting up their entrances into The Last Jedi.

    A few of the New Canon books have taken side-quests that meant little to the greater narrative, and in someways Cobalt Squadron does too, and yet, it feels like though this side quest might not have a greater impact, it still *matters*

    Don’t skip this book because of its age range. It draws you in more than many of the more adult entries into the new canon.

    Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME?!? How did I not know that Elizabeth Wein, author of my beloved Code Name Verity, wrote one of the STAR WARS TIE IN NOVELS?? Just imagine a chorus of angels singing right now to fully understand my feelings on this matter.

    Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME?!? How did I not know that Elizabeth Wein, author of my beloved Code Name Verity, wrote one of the STAR WARS TIE IN NOVELS?? Just imagine a chorus of angels singing right now to fully understand my feelings on this matter. Anyway, this focuses on awesome sisters Paige and Rose Tico, flying spaceships and jerry-rigging equipment and doing reconnaissance missions for the Resistance. (And yes it does talk about their necklaces and yes Disney really need to get some officially licensed jewelry to market.) I also loved that all of the leadership figures we see are middle aged women! If there is one thing Wein is an expert in, it is telling stories about ladies who love each other and also fly airplanes, so this is a gimme. Love it. A-.

    Just ok

    A very disappointing book. Personally I think there was a huge waste of potential. The story’s main characters are Rise and Paige Tico. There are cameos from general Leia and Vice Admiral Holdo, and there side characters of Hammer (heavy bomber/Star fortress).

    There is not much good I can actually say about this book. This book The pacing of the book is very slow and there is very little action, apart from a couple of tense moments not much going on. Personally I did not really like the Star Fort

    A very disappointing book. Personally I think there was a huge waste of potential. The story’s main characters are Rise and Paige Tico. There are cameos from general Leia and Vice Admiral Holdo, and there side characters of Hammer (heavy bomber/Star fortress).

    There is not much good I can actually say about this book. This book The pacing of the book is very slow and there is very little action, apart from a couple of tense moments not much going on. Personally I did not really like the Star Fortress ships they seemed to be big giant targets.

    The main character is Rose, this again I think this is a mistake, as I learned almost nothing new about her that was not on the movie. The rest of the crew we are likely never to hear about or from again including her sister Paige who died on duty taking out a Dreadnaught in the first battle in the movie, has an even smaller part in this book. I think this book should have been about the other characters or they should have added something to Rose I did not see in the movie. The only small spark of hope in this book is a comment Leia made to/about Rose early in the book.

    This book did not bring anything new that was not in the movie. The book is supposed to be for younger readers but I can’t see anyone but the most determined Star Wars fans getting to the end of it. The story is as slow and ploddingly along as the Star Fortresses. Not a good read.

    sucks that SOMEONE had already used the title 'rose under fire', smh

    Dnf at 55% I just couldn’t force myself to care which makes me sad because I really wanted to like it, I wanted to know more about Rose.
