Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: A Crash of Fate
Author: Zoraida Cordova
Zoraida Cordova’s new novel Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge: A Crash of Fate is one of those rare moments where something that was originally meant just to promote another product far exceeds expectations. Set on the planet of Batuu, with most of the action taking place at Black Spire Outpost, A Crash of Fate serves as a deeper dive into the themed land Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland in California and Hollywood Studios, Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
While the book is classified as a young adult novel, the story is a great way to get a more grounded look at the events happening in the Star Wars universe- particularly during the time of the sequel trilogy. The novel focuses on Izzy and Jules, childhood best friends who are quickly separated when Izzy was six years old and flown off planet by her parents, only to find her way back thirteen years later. Jules, on the other hand, stayed behind on his family’s farm, finding work at the outpost, and as our insight to this new world.
