Publisher's Summary

Discover Captain Phasma's mysterious history in this "Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi" novel.
One of the most cunning and merciless officers of the First Order, Captain Phasma commands the favor of her superiors, the respect of her peers, and the terror of her enemies. But for all her renown, Phasma remains as virtually unknown as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now, an adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins - and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters.
Deep inside the Battlecruiser Absolution, a captured Resistance spy endures brutal interrogation at the hands of a crimson-armored stormtrooper - Cardinal. But the information he desires has nothing to do with the Resistance or its covert operations against the First Order.
What the mysterious stormtrooper wants is Phasma's past - and with it whatever long-buried scandal, treachery, or private demons he can wield against the hated rival who threatens his own power and privilege in the ranks of the First Order. His prisoner has what Cardinal so desperately seeks, but she won't surrender it easily. As she wages a painstaking war of wills with her captor, bargaining for her life in exchange for every precious revelation, the spellbinding chronicle of the inscrutable Phasma unfolds. But this knowledge may prove more than just dangerous once Cardinal possesses it - and once his adversary unleashes the full measure of her fury.

Very dark, very different, very good.

This book is quite the departure from a normal Star Wars novel, but that makes it memorable. More grim and graphic than most, although not gratuitous or without reason. I found the details of the warrior customs interesting instead of filler, the story engaging, and the ultimate payoff worth the trip. This is a helluva origin story for someone who was onscreen in The Force Awakens for less than five minutes and only had a handful of lines. I hope she's more prominent in The Last Jedi, after this read I definitely want to see her in battle on screen. Very different, but impressive, with a good performance as well, I found January's shifts to male voices to be particularly strong. The new EU has been good lately, with Thrawn and Catalyst being good standalone stories that tie in well and actually feel important, and this is on par with both.

If you like Lord of the Flies.....

I didn't care for this Story as a Star Wars Story. The story overall is good but in universe, it fails miserably. It provides you with the knowledge that Phasma is a ruthless and loyal only to herself but doesn't add more than that. There are many other books that your time would Better spent on. If you liked Lord of the Flies this is for you; If you like Star Wars look elsewhere.
