#143 - Spark of The Resistance Review
Our first foray into the Journey to the Rise of Skywalker books is a discussion of Justina Ireland’s Spark of the Resistance! In one of our first glimpses of the post-The Last Jedi, we see a Resistance broken and shattered by the events of Episode VIII but a group that is hopeful and already rebuilding. We discuss Rey, Poe, and Rose’s excursion to the unknown planet of Minfar and how this little planet filled with rabbit-like Zixon’s is the first step towards a rebuilt Resistance capable of defeating the First Order. Plus, Ireland continues to impress us with her ability to capture the spirit of the old Legends books like the L. Neil Smith Lando books and Brian Daley’s Han Solo trilogy from the late ’70s and early ’80s.
