Star Wars Books You Should Read If You Like
Delilah Dawson

Imagine agreeing to write a full-length Star Wars novel for the first time and being given the task of summarizing the dark and complex life of a character like Captain Phasma.

Delilah Dawson didn’t just accept the dare: She executed it flawlessly.

The challenges did not end there. Penning Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire meant Dawson would have to ease audiences into territory never explored in the expanded universe before: Not just Black Spire Outpost, but also the trauma that results from escaping the First Order barely alive.

Dawson has already proven she is a master at creating and developing characters both foreign and familiar. Captain Cardinal/Archex, who began as the secondary villain in a much bigger story, becomes the broken survivor and potential hero you can’t help but root for.

Perhaps an even more impressive feat has been her ability to expand upon Phasma’s backstory and character while deliberately still not revealing too much about her in the process. To write an entire book about one of the sequel trilogy’s most mysterious villains and still leave readers begging for more is, to say the least, most impressive.

The themes running through her work are as true to Star Wars as the worlds she has created. It’s hard to argue that this author knows the Star Wars fandom well and won’t hesitate to both serve and surprise them.

Reading Dawson’s work and listening to her talk about Star Wars in general, it’s clear she’s having just as much fun telling these stories as we are consuming them.

We think it’s safe to assume that there are many more Star Wars books from Delilah Dawson coming our way in the future. In the meantime, check out the books and comics she is responsible for bringing to audiences all across the galaxy.

Delilah S. Dawson
28 - 33 ABY

The Force Awakens introduced Star Wars fans to a new kind of villain -- a female stormstrooper commanding her troops behind reflective chrome armor. Through the end of the film, Captain Phasma remained mostly a mystery. Who was she? Where did she come from? And why did she look different than all the other stormtroopers?

Delilah S. Dawson managed to answer all of our burning questions about this antagonist in her adult novel, Phasma. Throughout the book, readers learn the ruthless extremes the character takes in order to survive, and how she finds herself among the high ranks of the First Order, despite never having heard of them before.

Rose and Paige are sisters. Driven from their homeworld when they were young and forced to learn how to survive together, it was once impossible for either of them to imagine ever having to navigate the galaxy without the other.

Paige's sacrifice in the opening battle of The Last Jedi shapes not only the remainder of the film, but Rose's character growth as well. The two don't get to say goodbye onscreen. But this comic takes us back to when these two sisters were still an unstoppable team and follows them on an unforgettable adventure.
