Black Spire beautifully combines the excitement of new friendships, the horror of the First Order, and the validity of personal trauma to craft a fast-paced, thrilling story of resilience in the most dire of circumstances.

Staff Comments

Minor gripes aside, Black Spire is an absolutely incredible ride. Once again, we see that the old trope of throwing together a band of characters with little to nothing in common makes for riveting storytelling. Vi...Archex...Kriki...Zade...these are all names that may not be known by casual Star Wars fans, but absolutely should be! As an Expanded Universe reader, these are the types of projects that you should feel lucky are reserved for you. Definitely pick this book up and give it a try.

Black Spire answers a lot of questions fans had after the ending of Vi’s last adventure and presents plenty more of its own as the last page of the epilogue concludes. The team that Vi assembles is warm, enticing, and a crew that you can’t help but cheer for every step of the way, and as I closed the back cover, I couldn’t wait for my next adventure amongst the spires.

I was just one of many who were skeptical of Star Wars books being written around a Disney theme park. Thankfully my assumptions were completely misguided, and both this book and A CRASH OF FATE were amazing. You can tell within the first page that Delilah S. Dawson not only "gets" Star Wars, but loves it. She is a great storyteller, and her original characters never fail to disappoint. This book might be much more important to the Skywalker saga as a whole than we initially realized, and I feel confident in saying this is not a Star Wars book you should skip. If you thought the First Order was awful before, just wait until you're done here. This book is going to make you feel things. Be prepared. And get ready for an amazing ride.

Travel straight to the Resistance Base in Disneyland California in this incredible addition to the Star Wars EU. The book starts slow and uses the word "spy" approximately 2187 times, but once it picks up, it stays there. The characters are well developed and the world-building is top-tier. I'd definitely recommend this one to my friends.

- Corey Helton

I liked this book. It wasn't perfect, but I felt like it had more positives than negatives. From a plot standpoint, there were more than a few head-scratching moments for me, including some of the decisions made by Vi Moradi AKA "The Best Spy in the Resistance". However, a unique slew of original characters (including the best droid to ever grace a Star Wars novel) coupled with some lighthearted fun combined to make this an overall enjoyable read.
