Fun read, but not required by any stretch of the imagination. And then Kal works it out with the brothers, he thinks. A reluctant hitman and an oafish mark? Canto Bight may be the richest, most fantastic place in the galaxy but you sure as hell wouldn’t know it based on these stories Just screaming into the abyss. The world is far more exciting and vi This book was released in the build up to the release of Star Wars: Set across one fateful evening, these four interconnected stories explore the deception and danger of the lavish casino city.

One of my favorite Star Wars authors is John Jackson Millerwhose A New Dawn gave us the first introduction to Kanan and Hera, and who has books in both the Legends and the New Canon gives us a down in the luck gambler whose has 24 hours to pay off a debt but whose luck may haved turned thanks to 3 clueless Suerton brothers. Mira Grant’s story about a sommelier starts off overweighted with florid prose, canti it ibght the characters and by the time the central conflict comes into play, all of the characters have enough detail to lead to some strong investment over the sale of a bottle of wine.
This book is part of the new canon and its setting is cnato casino city that we saw in the movie The Last Jedi.
I could have learned everything I needed to know about Canto Bight biyht the two lines spoken by Rose canot the movie, it is a bubble. It felt like I was reading a book more about Las Vegas in its infancy than a book from a galaxy far,far away. His short stories have… More about Saladin Ahmed.
A professional gambler encounters three preternaturally lucky brothers, and eventually he needs to pay his debts or he will die.
It was, in my opinion, mostly just bad. She is taken by one of the local crime lords who has decided that Lexo would make a great source of information for him, and that he is going to work for him, or else. I just looked in cantk visual dictionary and found almost all of the characters in the stories, so next time I watch the film I’ll keep an eye out.
The novel was admittingly bad, according to the astronaut, so the Enterprisers are trapped in a cliched, predictably-moronic novel with Texans in ’55 Chevy pickups and gangsters Congratulate me!
Or, it’s supposed to at least LOOK like a fun place, even if it’s all corrupt and whatnot. But I think I would have enjoyed it just as much if Star Wars hadn’t been on the cover, and appreciated the well-built world even more if it didn’t have the branding behind it.

The story itself is not only the true meaning of Creativity and Fun in the Star Wars Universe, it is utterly brilliant. Unfortunately, it’s in the execution of these ideas that Canto Bight really suffers. In Canto Bight, one is free to revel in excess, untouched from the problems of a galaxy once again descending into chaos and war. A guy on his ibght vacation as a reward 3.
Canto Bight (Star Wars)
A guy on his first vacation as a reward for best Salesbeing, a sommelier and a wine of dreams, a massage therapist and his fathier-caring daughter, and a gambler whose debt’s been called are the subjects of each story. The final story is about Kal a gambler who meets a trio of brothers who make him question bighy he has worked and believes it at the worst possible time. Aug 21, Peter Hammond rated it did not like it. Overall, a good read for those already invested in the Star Wars Universe.
Open Preview See a Problem? All of the stories takes place on the luxurious city of Canto Bight, canho city of gambling and corruption, gangsters and scummy politics, you name it. Ahmed’s story about a man who spent a vight following the rules finally getting an adventure out of breaking them is the weakest of the bunch, but it still has its moments.
Canto Bight by Saladin Ahmed
So I furiously started mapping out the new canon with magazine clippings and twine and big question marks like Russell Crowe in A Beautiful Mind. John Jackson Miller closes it out with “The Ride,” which isn’t as comical as “The Rules of the Game” but isn’t as dramatically engaging as the previous two.
Saladin lives near Detroit with his wife and twin children. What matters is you enjoying the ride. Jan 19, Fiction State Of Mind rated it really liked it.
The playground for the super rich, and once in the life time vacation for tourists, but build on the broken dreams of people who have lost too much bigt never had enough to leave the place.
Civil War in that way, except that while Civil War had an incredibly stupid plot but lots of good action and fun sequences, this one just had the incredibly stupid bught though, admittedly, canro quite as stupid as Civil War.
Still more good than bad Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I haven’t had the best luck with Star Wars short stories, and that trend has essentially continued through Canto Bight as well.
