My Version of The Last Jedi: Chapter Fifteen

Secrets in the Deep

Kylo Ren gazed out of the window of his command shuttle at the fiery lakes of lava and molten cliffs that belonged to the planet of Mustafar. It was on these shores that his grandfather had nearly perished at the hands of the Jedi master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Darth Vader’s survival was miraculous and to harness the remarkable strength he possessed he had built his fortress here on a river of lava that moved through the castle and poured to the depths below in a cascading waterfall of magma.

Snoke had never wanted him to come here, for reasons unknown, but Kylo Ren was determined to write his own fate. Snoke believed he was weak. That he wasn’t a man. Well, he would show him. He would find Rey and bring her to Snoke by his own hand. Only then will Snoke truly take him seriously.

As the shuttle landed and Kylo Ren walked down the vessel’s ramp onto the planet of Mustafar he could feel the incredible power of darkness surrounding him. In front of him stood Darth Vader’s castle, rising toward the burnished sky like a tower.

He walked forth, allowing the Force to guide him. He entered the castle, moving through the barren halls as if he had been here several times before.

Throwback Friday: My Review of Phasma

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another weekly segment of Throwback Friday. This week I decided to look back on my review of one the first Star Wars books I’ve ever read; Phasma. Enjoy!

Captain Phasma is one of the coolest characters in the Star Wars universe. First of all, she’s a female stormtrooper which already makes her unique. And then, her chrome armor and blaster are absolutely beautiful. I was so excited to see her in The Force Awakens but alas, I was ultimately disappointed by her utter lack of involvement in the film. She was used as just a poster child for the movie and barely had a role despite her obvious importance. And then, it seemed like she wasn’t even going to make it to the next film because Finn, Han, and Chewie dumped her in a trash compactor. Thankfully, she escaped, a scenario that will be explained in the near future through the Captain Phasma comic.

Lucasfilm, however, realized their huge mistake by not incorporating her into the film more and now it looks like they’re going full steam ahead into revealing everything about Phasma leading up to The Last Jedi.

So, because I love Captain Phasma so much, there was no way I wasn’t going to get the book that’s all about her. And so, this is my review.
