    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 22, 2023

    The series continues to move forward decently but it's also felt like this arc hasn't been as well-defined as it needs to be. I do like seeing how the handmaidens are coming together and presented all these years later though it gets to be a bit much sometimes when you consider their ages since they're supposed to be several years to a decade older than Anakin, if I recall. Regardless, it's good to see more of their story instead of just being forgotten about after the prequels and what we get here highlights their skill set, the traumas of their pasts, and what they are fighting for. I'm interested to see where it's all going to go and what plan Vader really has in mind here. Read Full Review

    The book manages to balance action and excitement with exposition and insight into these characters, while also putting Sab in a fascinating position for the narrative going forward, a feat that we wish all Star Wars books could pull off as effectively as this chapter. Read Full Review
