Given the chance to expand the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga, does Rae Caron's novelisation of The Rise of Skywalker
If you were expecting to learn more about Beaumont Kim or the Knights of Ren you're going to be disappointed, and the presence of Max Kanata in the Star Wars
legendarium isn't fleshed out either. But that's OK, because Carson provides a solid foundation layer.>
What you do get is an insight into the nature of the relationship between Rey and Kylo/Ben and the inner struggles they both face, a pinch of background about Zor Bliss's escape from Kijimi and - most importantly - an expansion on Leia's role, a situation created by the untimely passing of Carrie Fisher and one which couldn't be wholy filled by old The Force Awakens
But perhaps the most revealing is the back story of Palpatine's resurrection, and its cost on his body.
Whatever your opinion of The Rise of Skywalker
is, this adaptation isn't going to change it one way or another, but if you feel that the final Star Wars
episode was a bit rushed and you want a bit more of an evenly paced end to the greatest trilogy of trilogies then this book will do the job.
