    A good medium sized story. This is definitely sumed at younger readers as all the Resistance heroes have their blasters set to stun and are capturing the First Order. This is after the Last Jedi, the Restistance is cut to the bone in terms of personal and resources. However when a call for help is intercepted by Rey, Rose, Poe and BB8, they cannot ignore it.

No more clues as to Rey's heritage but this is a decent to a good story for catch up before the movie or the next book.

    I have a big problem with the Resistance: They are absolutely boring, have been since the beggining and Lf has done nothing to make them more interesting. This book doesn't help either. How is it that the First Order has been described as this big bad organization but every time they show us part of it in the extra material the officers and generals are these completely useless and cartoonish villians?

Of course the super nice Resistance (we-always-help-everyone-and-use-the-words-spark-and-hope-every-time-we-can) is going to win if that is the level we can expect from the First Order. I will say I at least enjoyed the Rose w/Porgs and Rose w/Rey moments and interactions. BB is always a delight. Poe and everyone obssesed with his hair were kind of annoying but ok. The description of the creatures on the planet were not that good so the Phil Noto art was really appreciated to help visualize everything. All in all, it was an ok-ish not that interesting story that showed how the Resistance is building their support so it doesn't seem like such a surprise in the movie. I really REALLY hope that Resistance Reborn is better. It needs to be if Lucasfilm wants me to actually care about the good guys winning as they are fated to do bc this is Star Wars.

    A light adventure tale with Rey, Rose, Poe and BB-8, leading up to the upcoming movie. On a resupply run for the Resistance, the gang intercept a distress call and make their way to Minfar. Unfortunately, the First Order is there, too, looking for a rumoured fearsome weapon and abandoned labs.

    Part of the “Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” multimedia project that’s currently enveloping the “Star Wars” novel and comic lines, “Spark of the Resistance” is the first canon release of the line, as well as – unless I’ve missed something major – the first major piece of “Star Wars” fiction we’ve gotten that’s set post-“Episode XIII.” For those fans who read that and immediately start to nerd out, let me quickly put a bit of a damper on your excitement: there be no major revelations Part of the “Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” multimedia project that’s currently enveloping the “Star Wars” novel and comic lines, “Spark of the Resistance” is the first canon release of the line, as well as – unless I’ve missed something major – the first major piece of “Star Wars” fiction we’ve gotten that’s set post-“Episode XIII.” For those fans who read that and immediately start to nerd out, let me quickly put a bit of a damper on your excitement: there be no major revelations found here (unless you count the fact that the First Order is still evil and the Resistance is still fighting back). Writer Justina Ireland plays things pretty safe, both in her writing style and in her plotting – this isn’t the most slam-bang exciting of “Star Wars” novels, nor is it the most boring (“Thrawn,” I’m looking at you). Mostly, it’s a diverting-enough stopgap, clearly designed to help build excitement for the upcoming movie for those not in-the-know, while also giving die-hard fans something to nibble on in the interim. While the lack of juicy nuggets is a bit of a bummer, the disappointment is mitigated ever so slightly when you consider that a.) the novel is clearly written for a younger demographic, one likely less interested in digging deep into the canon than the typical “Star Wars” fan, and b.) that Episode IX is officially less than two months away (!!!). “Spark of the Resistance” may not be the most rousing of “Star Wars” novels, but as a tee-up for “The Rise of Skywalker,” it wets the palate well enough.

    I loved this one so, so, so much. I love Rey. I loved Rose. I loved Finn. I loved Poe.

    A fun and fast-paced story on a magnificent planet. It's nothing new or shocking but fulfils its purpose of hinting at what the Resistance has been up to. I wasn't surprised by any twists and turns but Spark of the Resistance has an appealing antagonist (and one very boring one) and beautiful illustrations by Phil Noto, which makes it perfect for the intended target audience of young readers.

    This book was such a drag to get through, even though it was only 224 pages long. The story was boring and side-questy. I have very little to say about this book. Though it might not be too fair to criticize as I am in no means the target audience. This is a young reader novel after all. But even still I think kids can deal with a better story than this.

    We have no idea how this connects, if at all to The Rise of Skywalker, but regardless, it's a nice little story of Rey, Rose and Poe helping these beings on this planet against the First Order from in between episodes 8 and 9. This is the first time with this narrator, and I really liked her!

When they arrive to the origin planet, they find a First Order warship and while avoiding TIE Fighters, their ship is damaged and they must land. On the surface of the planet, they find a new rodent-like alien species, who have been fighting the First Order who are on the look for a powerful weapon kept on abandoned Imperial laboratories. This search is led by an inept First Order officer and an alien scientist. The Resistance members and their new friends must work together, with some unexpected help, to defeat the First Order and prevent them from obtaining the dangerous weapon. This is interesting and with some tidbits regarding the reconstruction of the Resistance. Besides it has excellent illustrations by Phil Noto.

    Star Wars: Spark of the Resistance is a children’s novel detailing a side-quest undertaken by some of the key characters from the Disney Star Wars Sequel Trilogy. It is a simplistic story, probably age-appropriate (although I have some caveats about that), about hidden laboratories and secret weapons. Early on in the story there is a trap lifted straight from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: “Only in the leap from the lion's head will he prove his worth.” If only the Falcon’s crew had been carr Star Wars: Spark of the Resistance is a children’s novel detailing a side-quest undertaken by some of the key characters from the Disney Star Wars Sequel Trilogy. It is a simplistic story, probably age-appropriate (although I have some caveats about that), about hidden laboratories and secret weapons. Early on in the story there is a trap lifted straight from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: “Only in the leap from the lion's head will he prove his worth.” If only the Falcon’s crew had been carrying Henry Jones’s diary, they would have been able to recognise an invisible bridge without having to rely on BB-8’s sensors. It’s an amusing reference to another Lucasfilm work. The writing is fair, and again mostly age appropriate. There is some sloppy grammar—for example, “After they had drank and eaten their fill”. I expect better from a professionally edited novel for children, and perfect tenses should not be difficult for native speakers to get right. At one point there is a tremendous case of tell instead of show—a principal character’s intentions are revealed in an authorial infodump instead of being demonstrated via action or dialogue. I’m not sure if this is a junior novel stylistic thing—i.e. revealing before time that a character is a potential ally of the heroes in order to make the story less stressful for younger readers—but it serves to puncture the drama somewhat. Then, halfway through the book, the story becomes the Star Wars junior fiction version of Paul Verhoeven’s adaptation of Starship Troopers, with giant underground worm monsters and flying creatures carrying troopers off into the sky to devour them. So, in my mind’s eye this story is bloodier and gorier than any Star Wars fiction since Death Troopers or Red Harvest. I do find the trivialisation of murder rather troubling in a children’s book, so when the heroic Poe Dameron’s thoughts are recounted as, “He’d started the day loading supplies and ended it meeting the Zixon. And in between had been a nice moment of blasting TIE Fighters and stormtroopers”, I’m a little taken aback. (Perhaps the stormtroopers were only stunned, but the TIE pilots definitely failed to survive) And I’m sure the green-furred giant rabbit-eared creatures called Zixon are in no way inspired by the green-furred giant rabbit eared creature called Jaxxon from the 1970s Marvel Star Wars comics. Not at all. The book ends on an offhand remark about introducing an invasive species into a new ecosystem, and then a joke about imprisonment being better than the kidnapped-and-brainwashed-from-childhood First Order stormtroopers deserve. Quite. Still, I rather enjoyed it—certainly it is fun in an unthreatening way, and I was glad to see Rose Tico used in a more fulfilling manner than JJ Abrams managed in The Rise of Skywalker. Recommended only for young Star Wars fans.

    This is the first Middle Grade Book in the Canon that I've been able to get and I'm happy to say that it was a very enjoyable read.

That being said, it was a fun, short adventure that was for the most part predictable, but still had some fun twists and turns. I have typically been dissapointed with the "Journey to..." books because they don't have as many connections as I would normally wish. I am assuming that any references between this book and the movie are incredibly small. I would hazard to guess that the speices in this book might cameo in the background, but nothing more than that. That being said, I always enjoy the stories themselves and am hopeful with this new batch for the "Journey to the Rise of Skywalker". The interaction between Rey and Rose was interesting, though not where it would have been had this been an adult novel. You can tell Rose is still pining over Finn, but it's not too obvious, and Rey seems to be over him. I really liked how Rey has continued to make friends with Poe, even though he is written as pompous at the beginning of the book. Thankfully, his story improves throughout and I think that these books are helping set up a Rey/Poe relationship in The Rise of Skywalker(though that is purely speculation). Overall, fun, short read. I don't reccomend this unless you're a huge Star Wars fan. If you have to read anything leading up to TROS, I would expect that Resistance Reborn or Force Collector will serve you better. Still, this book gets a 7.0 out of 10! Good job Justina Ireland.

    Well this was small, contained side mission that was fast paced. This is obviously more for kids seeing as the guns our heroes possess are set for stun. The big bad is a mustache twirling villain from Saturday morning cartoons. Only one baddie is actually killed and it's done indirectly by one of our heroes... yeeeah this is definitely for a younger audience but I did enjoy the story. The characters kind of feel like theirselves. Rose is great. BB-8 is adorable. Poe seems to be himself. Rey... I Well this was small, contained side mission that was fast paced.

Idk it's so weird how Rey from TFA seems like a different person than TLJ and she doesn't really acknowledge or think about the fight in the throne room(this book takes place after TLJ, but doesn't explicitly say how long after). Rey doesn't acknowledge the connection she has with Kylo, there is no ForceTime between the two. It felt so disjointed from the main story. Still a descent book/story and is great for young kids.

    Not gonna lie, I read this for the cover. Strong Rey on the front paired with Phil Noto's gorgeous artwork was enough for me. It ended up being quite enjoyable and cute, traveling to a new planet with new alien beings, showing the bad guys getting beaten by the good, with the overlying message of hope and a happy ending. Everything Star Wars should be. Just keep in mind that this is written for kids so it's got simple writing and the plot is easy to figure out if you're an adult reading it.

    As I tend to read everything Star Wars related I inevitably picked this up, knowing that this is for younger fans I tried to keep an open mind but to be honest this was simply awful. Just because your intended audience is young doesn’t mean you should write like a child yourself. The story, dialog and overall quality was completely lacking skill, it felt like no care was put into this at all so I don’t think that I would bother recommending this to anyone.

    This is a fun middle grade novel that covers the rebuilding of the resistance before The Rise of Skywalker. It’s always exciting to learn about new planets and creatures in the Star Wars universe, especially because it makes you realize how important the fight against the First Order really is. Definitely a quick read, and while I don’t expect it to impact the story line of episode 9, it’s still fun to fill in the blanks between movies.

    This is focused on three of our Resistance Heroes, Rey, Poe Dameron, and Rose Tico.

They've got the Millennium Falcon and are on a mission from General Organa to bring back supplies to the Resistance when they encounter a distress call from the planet Minfar, stating that the First Order had landed there and the residents of the planet needed help. This takes our heroes (and BB-8 and some freshly named Porgs) on an adventure to check out what is going on and if they can help in anyway, while also being cautions if it is a trap. While they're on their way, we also encounter a First Order officer and a scientist who are also on Minfar trying to find something that could aid the First Order. Overall, I really enjoyed this book, especially on the second reading. At first, I was too distracted by the simplicity but, hey, it is a junior novel. On the second reading, I picked up on far more things and nuances about the characters that made me even more excited that this was a Journey to the Rise of Skywalker addition. We get to see Rose taking more of an important role and get to see Poe and Rey interact more than just those few words at the end of The Last Jedi. I'm also more excited in seeing where Poe will go after seeing that, in the past few months since the events of TLJ, he has grown as a leader. For being a short book and a junior novel, I would actually say this is a great read, especially leading up to December since we get to see all of these characters really interact for the first time as a unit away from the Resistance. Now, would I say this is "required" reading of someone before the movie, probably not. You can totally go without it as I'm sure some of the growth we see in this one will be reflected in other Journey to... works. However, I would say if you're in the mood for a shorter read that focuses on some of our favorite, and newest characters, you can't go wrong with this book.

    A delightful Star Wars romp! I read this fun book in a single sitting, because I couldn’t put it down. The characterization is wonderful and the adventure is very Star Wars. I truly enjoyed seeing Rey, Rose, Poe, and BB-8 all have an adventure together. The new characters were great, especially Glenna. And the First Order commander was hilarious!

Character choices don't make any sense. Their discussions and thoughts show little understanding of reality. Everything is contrived. Hopefully there are some easter eggs for the movie, but I'm not holding my breath. Listened at 2x speed and wish I could have gone faster. The narrator to the audiobook has a disjointed reading style that was very difficult to follow.
