Much as it pains me to say, I didn’t really care for Poe Dameron: Free Fall. I love the character and am glad we’re finally getting more stories focused on the trio from the films, but this comes off as a rushed job ultimately used to connect the dots. 

While it shines in certain character moments, the book does little to string together a singular plot and shortens the timeframe so much climatic moments are robbed of virtually all emotion. The crazy thing is, it would have worked far better as a Zorii Bliss story, rather than Poe’s. By the time the final chapter comes, the decisions he makes still don’t feel like they make sense outside of the fact it has to connect to the bigger narrative of the films. 

There are fun moments, and some neat Easter eggs for fans, but I’d suggest holding out for a library check-out or eReader sale.
