    If you weren't a fan of Kylo Ren (for some reason), this book won't change your mind, but the narrative makes for an entertaining glimpse into the character's villainy. Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a fun story set in the sequel trilogy. The characters were well written and the art served the story well.

This is, however, a good time for fans of Star Wars and for any fan wanting to learn more about Kylo Ren and the First Order. Read Full Review
