I really really loved this book so much. I have not read a star wars book in a while and I decided to read this based on the really good reviews. This book defiantly lived up to the hype and reviews. I could not put it down and it was very well written. I liked how it led into the Force Awakens
The plot was well written and fast paced. I did not think it was boring or slow. I loved the plot in this book and how it led in the Force Awakens.
Leia is such a good character both in this book and the movies. The author got her right. The other supporting characters were also very well written.
