Our SYNOPSIS

No Spoilers

Cobalt Squadron tells the story of the Resistance's crack bomber pilots and technicians, including sisters Rose and Paige Tico, survivors of a world overrun by the First Order. Encountering another family on the run, the sisters undertake a mission to provide emergency aid to the Alterra system. Outwitting the First Order and helping people in need will take all of their ingenuity, bravery, and teamwork.



Cobalt Squadron overlaps the events of The Force Awakens and establishes the back-story for the Tico sisters. Many readers will find it helps deepen their appreciation for Paige and Rose as we see them on screen in The Last Jedi. In particular, it adds weight to Rose's sense of loss and her deepening sense of resolve through the film.

When I picked up Cobalt Squadron, I wasn't expecting much. It was a short, easy read, and as part of the Journey to The Last Jedi books, I knew it would somehow lead into the events of the film. I really appreciated getting to know Rose and Paige and witness how special their relationship was. I really wish I'd read this story before seeing the movie, because it really helped justify Rose's "sacrifice" at the end of the film. It's a slow read until about the last quarter, but it was still entertaining and worth the time.
